NSA spying in WoW
Return to board index
According to the latest leaks from Snowden (found in TechCrunch) Blizzard is willingly working to let the government spy on us.
Blizz I'm officially done with you. I won't pay you to collude with the government. Good riddance. Yes, flame me for this being my first and last post. Doesn't change the facts.
Well at least someone's reading those high-quality cyber sessions going on in the Goldshire Inn.
Did you actually read the full text, wherever you heard about it?
According to the
"We are unaware of any surveillance taking place," said a spokesman for Blizzard Entertainment, based in Irvine, Calif., which makes World of Warcraft. "If it was, it would have been done without our knowledge or permission."
Blizzard is one of the companies I would expect to say "^&*! you" to any such request that is not legally airtight, and even go public with any kind of pressure put upon them to coerce access to user data.
What I expect those "spies" did: hang around in /2, listen and reply to any lunatic raving about something, and befriend them to find out whether they are an actual threat. And by that, I'm already giving them a lot more credit that they probably deserve.
Also, it's not a "latest leak", as far as I got it, this is just another part of the initial leak - I don't think Snowden still has access to new information.
Lets drop the fake outrage over this nsa crap. If you are really mad vote for better people. Everyone was for the Patriot Act everyone wanted to feel safer. Those against that bill were called unpatriotic, traitors and people went on and on about how bad they were for not wanting to "protect" America.
Well you got what everyone wanted and thanks to Bush, republicans and democrats and Obama you now have a huge govt agency that spends all its time gathering info.
The nsa does not care if you killed hogger or are running around azeroth naked but if people use games to communicate around the world and make plans to harm people in real life than they are checking to see if that will happen. If mana bomb equals dirty bomb and stormwind equals D.C, than they want to know.
Now if you really wont stand to support a business engaged with the law that you supported than make sure you drop your phone, credit card, bank, school, as well and dont go to gas stations, hardware stores, garden centers or rental car agencies. They all comply with the govt by law.
