I think it would have looked more effective
with the eye rolling rather than distorting.
But interesting anyway.

I thought this thread was about the auto-surveilance
that there is a growing amount of these days.

Did you know that every time a credid card number
appears on the internet, its presence is logged by
police and government agencies?
The time and the persons details are recorded?

They claim this is done 'to fight crime'

John:

I know which you may be talking about. Echelon is known to be active out there.

It is global spying network created by (as so far is known) USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. It not only scans all international communication lines (using 120 satellites, microwave listening stations and an adapted submarine) but also analyses and stores usenet messages. All of this is done transparently and automatically.

This link explains some of it:
