Operation "Troll The NSA" Starts Up Online With Plan To Jam Spy Scanners
Mail Online ^ | June 12, 2013 | Jill Reilly

Posted on 06/12/2013 7:18:15 AM PDT by Biggirl

An operation to troll the NSA has started up online in a bid to jam the spy scanners. The plan is to 'test' the system by sending a message full of terrorist buzz words to the agency Wednesday at 7pm EST. The website was set up in response to the accusations at the U.S. government is collecting and looking at data from Internet companies like Google, Facebook and Apple through a secretive program codenamed PRISM.

Methinks they’re smart enough to filter this sort of stuff out.

I’d rather not irritate an entity with the power of the NSA.

We’ll soon be a full on authoritarian police state, (if we aren’t already). Deal with it.

After all, PRISM worked so well in identifying the Tsarnaev brothers...

So to really test it, everyone would only need to mention “tea party”, “Rush Limbaugh”, or “slut”, right?

I remember the old days of "Echelon bait" on emails and Usenet postings. Just include a few words like plutonium and sarin in every posting to force the NSA to examine every message in detail.

Now a far more effective way would be to send a large number of encrypted messages to force them to spend CPU time to decrypt everything, even the messages which just say "Hi Mom!"

They use 29 year old high school drop outs. They’ll definitely figure it out. FYI, most hackers drop out at 27.

It would be more effective if they used words like constitution, freedom, tea party,2nd amendment, etc....those are the people being targeted by the Obama administration. Not Islamist terror groups and lingo.

Irritate them? Let’s try utterly destroying their effectiveness and ability to operate. They’ve betrayed the People they serve and need to be punished for it. Personally I’m all for capital punishment in this matter but I’ll settle for having Obama resign, the NSA disbanded along with FBI, ATF, and IRS for the moment.

No, I’m not worried about irritating them, they need to be scared to hell about irritating us and violating the Constitution.

Won’t bother them. No real terrorist would send all those words in one email. Besides, the real terrorist is going to use code words, like deliver the package, the baby has been delivered, uncle sam will soon be crying, etc.
Also, I think NSA is smart enough to catch deliberate misspellings, like bumb instead of bomb.

My only worry about this stuff is that a corrupt administration, like the one we now have in Washington, (got that NSA?) is going to use it to harass political enemies.

I think you're right. Without an established pattern of behaviors, communications, and words...and who knows what other heuristics this thing operates with... I think a couple of isolated emails will cause nary a ripple in the probability tables.

I handled an international custody case years ago. At the time the agency coordinating this was the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. When I tried to translate that name into Spanish, it always went and came back as “exploded” children. Opps. I used a bad word. Sorry Jim.

Make some random calls to pakistan, go buy a few pressure cookers, some fireworks, ammonium nitrate fertilizer, etc., GOOGLE “how to make a bomb”, go look at the bios and overhead maps of homes of elected/selected officals (FISA court members ect), ....then sit back and wait for the knock.

In this vein>>>>>>

For Firefox and Chrome get the “track me not” add on. This extension sends out google search queries (bing too if you want) that are random. You own searches get lost (to trackers) in a cloud of chaff. In this forest they cannot find your trees

The older Tsarnaev brother was all but handed to us by the Russians on a silver platter after his travels to Chechnya. The guy could have worn a neon sign around his neck and would not have been any more obvious given his activites and the warnings.

Yeah, especially because they are sending the exact same message over and over. That will probably get filtered out automatically very quickly.

We’ve done this a few times on FR, on threads about Echelon/Carnivore. Everyone just makes posts full of all the “sensitive” words they can think of.

Insurgent, target, detonate, surveillance, infiltrate, passport, collateral, nuclear, radiation, timer, fuse, semtex, nitrate, casualties, airport, etc (Hi NSA!).

I don't know if it would be possible to jam the NSA's capacity.

From the online description of the Utah facility.
The storage capacity of the Utah Data Center will be measured in "zettabytes". What exactly is a zettabyte? There are a thousand gigabytes in a terabyte; a thousand terabytes in a petabyte; a thousand petabytes in an exabyte; and a thousand exabytes in a zettabyte. Some of our employees like to refer to them as "alottabytes".

May be a little difficult when the organization has computers that easily and flawlessly handle mega-giga-ultra-super-teraflops with effortless aplomb.

Maybe if the entire PLANET wrote in emails all at once....

I’ve heard they have a regiment of repairmen who’ve developed tools captured from the saucer discovered in Roswell, and it takes all of a minute and a half to repair ANY breakdown. ;-)
