    and the government was trying to put people in prison not too long ago for creating fake accounts and impersonating people.

    wonder if we have any spies on this board with all the political talk we have.

    this part here has me a bit confused...

    so for instance... i dont use any social networking sites... does that mean that they could potentially use MY identity to create one of these "personas" to fool people i went to school with????
    how the fuck is that not a form of identity theft????

    and actually after a little research it just so happens that "online impersonation" itself is already illegal in many states

    the government is out of control and needs to be smacked back in line

    “If the president does it, its NOT illegal”

    - Richard Milhouse Nixon

    Also, this is OBAMA’s government doing this. His govt needs to do everything possible to trick us into believing hes not as bad as everyone says before the 2012 election. He is going to have to “make it up” if he wants to win... make it look like people agree with him and not with you, etc.

    EDIT:
    Hmm i just realized something. Right now people go to jail and lose their jobs for things they do online. What if the obama administration impersonates me and the cops come-a-knockin? How will I defend myself?

    EDIT2:
    ARGH the more I think about this the more angry I get lol. THE Taxpayer is footing the bill for something that will be directly used to deceive them.

    that's true but they are not using the name of likeness of someone without their consent.

    I'm sure most everyone here knows on some level the government is interjecting propoganda but to go so far as identity theft is just crazy.

    Explains all the random adds I've been getting from random barely underagers. Thought I knew one's name and accepted it since it was a private page. First thing she commented on was pics of me and my AK. Probably fishing for illegal arms or some shit. Or Im just paranoid and its just some random 17yr old chick. :shrug2:

    Funny you bring sabz up, I just reread the thread that more or less led to his departure.

    that was my first reaction to this thread, though i'm sure he's legit.
