LOL, i love these threads because the first thing i ask is:
1. Do you have a gmail, yahoo, msn, hotmail, live, outlook, isp email account.
If yes to any of the above then a government agency already knows enough about you more than you think.
2. Do you always use a logless VPN service, if not then once again the gov knows who and were and what you do.
3.Do you any type of smart phone on any platform, if yes then the gov already has multiple exploits for remote execution + all meta data is stored.
4. If you belong to any western country, your fellow gov knows everything about you.
See the problem here is, just because microsoft started doing this its the end of the world all of a sudden, well let me tell you fellas a few things about privacy. THERE IS NONE.
The second you connect to a open network such as the internet, you are and will always be exposed.
Dont think your linux flavor sends info back? LOL think again.
Let me just reiterate, google, yahoo, microsoft, open software all spy and send info back about the users behavior, ad agencies send and find everything about what you do using cookies, cookie exploitation.
I could go on with what people call "Tin foil hat" conversation but a lot of it sounds like the movies!.
Fact is, you are not safe from snooping, encryption as we know it has been exploitable in the past (Thanks Snowden) and will continue to be but the only difference is we are not told about it.
Germany and the FBI in america "Hell even my Australian government are second to USA for snooping and infection" have been caught out so many times infecting their end users by exploiting legitimate software with a malware version.
You want to have privacy then move out bush, dont use any form of communication (Not even postal) and definatley dont use the internet or any phone.
