    Don't forget people pirating movies. That is what this is really all about.

    This is a rather ridiculous rule that gives the FBI *formal* permission to basically do whatever the fuck they want. They can't even get an investigation with regards to a private email server done correctly, why would we want to give them the power to search and/or seize any computer in the world found to be using anonymity software? That's insane.

    ^ Crying because it's so true. On a more serious note, this DOES seem like a huge breach of privacy.

    If one believes they are actually private in what they do then then need to give their head a shake. The big guns can do whatever they want despite the populace being uncomfortable by it. You will never ever be 100% private. Not in today's world.

    It won't be Trump starting the next war. It will be the FBI caught spying on one of our allies via hacking and pissing off other countries one too many times cause of it.

    Well, hopefully the FBI will be too busy spying on our allies to notice me occasionally pirating a movie haha
