    series of newly unsealed rulings from the federal district and appellate courts state that the FBI's "Backdoor Searches" of Americans are a violation of privacy and constitutional rights. What are your thoughts on this? Let's have a discussion. Learn more in a great EFF article:

    EFF has long maintained that it is impossible to conduct mass surveillance and still protect the privacy and constitutional rights of innocent Americans, much less the human rights of innocent people around the world.

    This week, we were once again proven right. We learned new and disturbing information about the FBI’s repeated and unjustified searches of Americans’ information contained in massive databases of communications collected using the government’s Section 702 mass surveillance program.
