techniques to detect paid shills snooping your email
Experiment to see if your mail is being tapped by the gov't
Richard M. Smith of ComputerBytesMan has come up with a "quick and easy method to see if one's email messages are being read by someone else."

1. Set up a Hotmail account.

2. Set up a second email account with a non-U.S. provider. (eg. Rediffmail.com)

3. Send messages between the two accounts which might be interesting to the NSA.

4. In each message, include a unique URL to a Web server that you have access to its server logs. This URL should only be known by you and not linked to from any other Web page. The text of the message should encourage an NSA monitor to visit the URL.

5. If the server log file ever shows this URL being accessed, then you know that you are being snooped on. The IP address of the access can also provide clues about who is doing the snooping.

The trick is to make the link enticing enough for someone or something to want to click on it. As part of a large-scale research project, I would suggest sending out a few hundred thousand messages using various tricks to find one that might work.

As Dave Farber notes: "It is not a good idea to try this if you hope to ever again fly on an American airline without first being strip-searched by the TSA monkeys." Link

Reader comment: Philipp says: "I think to make this experiment really fool-proof, one would need to set up a button on the page which is linked to from the email. The button needs to be called 'Enter' or similar, and only when it is pressed is there suspicious government activity -- because with just a simple 'GET' URL, an automated spider started by the email program (for whatever reasons, e.g. to add pages to the index or look for a virus) might fetch it. A 'POST' button however is not pressed by crawlers."

So what you are saying is use the word bomb so an agent will read your e-mail, waste their time while they could be spending time trying to catch real terrorist and stop people from blowing up buildings?

Wow what good idea, NOT what an ass.

fubar how long ago were you demobed? because if you arent youre conditioning is showing. By the way your reasoning applies to every government there is which leads to an interesting problem, ie Iran says that of their terrorists, but it turmns out that a lot of those are US agents or proxies.
This by the way is not an attack on your reasoning, for if we lived in a world where truly democratic governments really did care for their voters it would be justifiable(your reasoning), but we dont, and the facts are that the cia for but just one example have been involved in so many terrorist actions(assinations, mass murders etc) decries your holier than thou lily white attitude. All governments and their dirtydeed departments do the same, its just that the US keeps insisting that God and moral rectitude are their guiding principle, and they may be right , if it is the god of this world they serve as i suspect IMO.

CIA has done inappropriate operations during all administrations.

What does demobed mean. I cannot find the meaning.

If you read the original post it is all about going and setting up accounts and baiting the government to monitor you. IF you think that is a good way to use our funds so be it.

I disagree.

Why waste some poor low level bastards time that has to monitor the words bomb and stuff on the net. I mean honestly, would you do it? And only an asshole would, think about it…

Sounds like a huge waste of time and a good way to get yourself arrested.

That's like sticking a fork into an electric light socket to see if it works.

Assume it does, Doofus.
