Tapped: "One thing the Bush administration says it can do with this meta-data is to start tapping your calls and listening in, without getting a warrant from anyone. Having listened in on your calls, the administration asserts that if it doesn't like what it hears, it has the authority to detain you indefinitely without trial or charges, torture you until you confess or implicate others, extradite you to a Third World country to be tortured, ship you to a secret prison facility in Eastern Europe, or all of the above.

Tribal trouble

Odd to get news of Tribe.net trouble from fuckedcompany. Guess that's just the way that the rss feed bounces. (and the fact that almost all of my tribe posting is pulled via rss feeds anymore).

Looks like 10 people got the boot. Which is pretty odd timing since they've just created yet another tribe tribe and two redesigned homepages.
