Government Intrusion, and your privacy

Post by bubbathegimp »

For those that missed it..

"Senate vote allows FBI access to your browsing history without a warrant"

I am now using a VPN, and have installed Comodo Firewall.
Still gotta double check what all is connecting in the background, and add whatever restrictions to background service I think probably need to be blocked..

Pure utopia.

BTW, using slang in an English spoken board (International) does not help so much.

Da gubmint could also be a new cheewing-gum by my side LOL. :lol:
Not actually The Government as you wanted to say I guess?

I'm an American, and I don't understand the desire to use such slang.

Thanks man, I had to search for it.
Trust me I read it as sort of mint candy at first, then I realized it didn't make sense. :)

I had a New Zealand girlfriend who teaches English in Italy and we were together for 8 years,
I have to admit that I did not learn very well but because I also have other things to do ...
and really I am not a good alumn :)

But certain terms I have never heard or read before. :lol:

Besides, it almost seems kind of despicable when I think about it.

No problem.

It is the type of slang where you are not really missing much by not knowing it. It is Urban Dictionary level stuff.

Of course, especially if you're multilingual (more than 5 here) you can't be perfect, ever.
If you want everyone to participate in a discussion in English, I think it's correct to let other users understand everything right away, even if they are not native speakers like me, and they can sometimes (often) have a hard time. But nothing happened, I'm used to using search engines. Show must go on. :)
