If it protects us from terrorism or crime I'm all for it.

If they start selling our info I'll be against it.

Actually can't we extend this, and get it to make us some money?

we can add swear words to the monitoring filter, and fine everyone that has sworn on the internet. we could even go further and fine people from a list of approved words and phrases.

we could make zillions.
