>>52414861 >Why would the NSA want to read the emails they actually do it. it comes to the eyes of a human as soon their computers finds "triggering" words or relationships, especially international ones.
>>52414861 He supports free speech, that's enough to get your name on some lists.
By the way, there's a misconcpetion that NSA goes after "this" or "that" individual guy for whatever reason, in reality their system is massively bulk-collecting *all* internet traffic that passes through the US borders, there're 10 Gbit/s sniffers places on your ISP backbone.
Your torrents, the SSL traffic of 4chan from your pc, etc all is being recorded as you read this, even if you aren't under any investigation.
>>52415044 You missed the point. The point is that we aren't safer. There's no evidence that we're safer, and if there WAS, they'd be parading it out to justify what they're doing. There's nothing, we're not safer because of this. If anything the obsession with backdoors and breaking encryption is making us less safe.
As for human lives meaning more than human lives, what is a life without humanity? Liberty or death? What was that?
Not to mention >>52415070 We should be spying on bed sheets. You're more likely to die in the shower, or be killed by your toilet. Let's put cameras there so when a shower accident happens the police can turn up right away. Or better yet, have the police right outside the door so when they see you slipping they can burst in and catch you.
>>52415115 If you genuinely think Snowden is a traitor, please listen to the guy that did in the legal way.
>Binney repeated estimates that the NSA (particularly its Stellar Wind project) had intercepted 20 trillion communications "transactions" of Americans such as phone calls, emails, and other forms of data (but not including financial data). This includes most of the emails of US citizens. Binney disclosed in an affidavit for Jewel v. NSA that the agency was "purposefully violating the Constitution".
Friendly reminder that if Snowden did it openly and got away with it, nothing can guarantee you that dozens of other NSA agents aren't doing the same... in secrecy, WHICH IS WORSE. You'll never know what they're selling to foreign governments, those are REAL traitors.
You're just a cuck anyway and probably won't understand this, too much for your stagnating brain.
>>52414923 He's important to more people than you are. He's important to everyone who uses Linux, and uses GNU licensed software, considering Linux runs on supercomputers, embedded devices, TVs, monitors, routers, switches, satellites, phones, and god knows what devices (which in total add up to a lot more than windows or OSX devices, get rekt), he's important to a whole load of people.
>>52415295 >>thinks technology is only about an obscure operating system almost nobody uses (comparatively speaking to others) what should we post about then? What is more technology than open source or operating systems?
>>52415066 There's terrorism and there's terrorism.
They claim it's is so open and free and including etc etc. But when people actually want to use it or ask for directions, they get the usual RTFM-treatment. I had the "privilege" of having one of these as a class mate.
And yet they wonder why Apple and manufacturers of all-in-one computers are doing so well. That little tidbit of information can't they swallow.
>>52415242 And the caveman who invented the wheel should be the most important person in history right?
RMS is simply a living artifact. Maybe he did help kick-start the core on which all the stuff you mentioned was developed, but he's done absolutely nothing afterwards - it's entirely the hard work of millions of people around the world. His job was done decades ago, and he shouldn't be allowed to assign the achievements of others to himself because of that one thing he did.
>>52415384 how is anybody in this thread telling you to only discuss linux?
it just so happens that tech hobbyists like open source, and that linux is the greatest open source project yet, so almost anything that's open source is somehow linux related. That's why it's discussed so often, it's the biggest project of hobbyist technology which this board is about.
give me a list of things that you want to discuss here then
>>52415503 because fuck the rest of the world and fuck human rights, only the US deserve protection, the other nations exist solely for our interest and we should interfer only if they pose a threat to us.... or that's what this cuck actually believes.
>>52415518 Did you ever see his tweets or the posts he leaves around the web? his active campaign for the freedom of speech is more than enough to fall under the aim of surveillance agencies. You don't even know who you're talking about.
>>52415175 >"purposefully violating the Constitution".
NSA is an unfunny meme and should just stop. If you allow them to do as they please and shit on the constitution, nhuman rights will be next and when you lose human rights, it's not something you can joke about anymore, unless you want to live in a 3rd world shithole like NK.
>>52415858 the "average american" is incredibly retarded because most people belorg to the big 3 groups of stupidity: niggers, rednecks and liberals. So I honerstly believe the average person from Peru is much more intelligent than the average american.
>>52415858 >Honestly believing this Two of those degrees are from Swedish Universities, 1986 and 1996. And before you say "lol mudslimes" this was before that was a factor. Sweden has always been on the forefront of computer technology. Hell, you americans are creaming your pants over Google Fiber when it's been a fact of life in Sweden for ten years at least.
Hell, I'm a uni student with a pretty cheap internet connection and i get 250 down and 10 up.
>honorary doctorates >still calls himself Dr Stallman in his email header
Kek. What a fucking unwarranted sense of self importance. Steve Jobs got an honorary doctorate, did he ever call himself Dr Jobs? Stephen Colbert got an honorary Doctorate, apart from making a joke about it did he ever call himself Dr Colbert?
No. Because calling yourself a doctor when you have an honorary Doctorate is fucking pathetic. Why do you freetards worship this fat faggot again?
What a fucking fedora. I mean, fine not celebrating Christmas when you're Jewish I get, but celebrating Grav-mas, a celebration of Isaac Newton is insane. For one, Newton was deeply religious and a life long Anglican, so much so that some of the modern day religious Canon is based off work Newton did while working with the Church. Secondly it's just such fucking attention seeking behaviour. Grown men don't act like that.
Stallman is a fucking faggot and has no redeeming features.
