    It is indeed a repost, but it goes further even than that. In TFA, which takes the form of an interview, the response to the first question begins:

    Robert Guerra: Well, this project is actually the second report.

    Sounds like someone might have been nobbled. But in any case, describing countries such as the US or Australia as "free" - when citizens are free to view whatever content they want so long as they have no objection to so-called "Intelligence" services spying on them and taking whatever action they see fit - seems a bit hollow to me.
  • if its own editors don't even read it. because just scanning the headlines for one minute a day and having a barely workable human memory would send off dupe alarm bells

    so taco: please tell us what website you are reading so we can stop reading here and go there instead, since you obviously don't consider slashdot worth your time. you obviously think slashdot is beneath your interest level

    its insulting to slashdot's readers, and it just leaves you with the feeling that if the powers that be around here don't even care enough to read their own site, so why am i reading this site? its a major turn off

    how long has the dupe problem dragged on?

    what exactly is your fucking problem that you can't scan the headlines of your own fucking website for one minute a day?

    Right, so basically the US is the second most internet-free country, from a list of countries.

    Hold the presses.
