Spam The Government

January 26, 2009

“The government has unveiled plans for a private company to run a “superdatabase” that will track all our emails, calls, texts, internet use and so on. This is an immense infringement of civil liberties, not to mention a major risk to our private data – but it won’t make us any safer. The sheer amount of information that the Government intends to collect will be impossible to analyse properly and will undoubtedly turn up false positives while missing potential security threats amongst the morass of spam emails and private chat.”

The above is taken from a facebook group wanting to spam the home office for wanting to sift through our browsing, IMs and e-mails. The idea behind it is that on a date TBA members will cc or bcc the home office email address (public.enquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk) regardess of content or importance; or as the groups mastermind, Martin Allan Grey, puts it “we should send a message to the Home Office – ‘you want to see our emails? Ok then, here they are then!’.”
