    "spy on literally everyone [with a Verizon phone, and presumably with their competitors as well]," there is no meaningful check here.

    What are you doing to fight the dangerous and counterproductive error of treating dirtbag terrorist criminals as though they were comic book supervillains? I can't believe we still have to argue this shit, let alone on Daily Kos.

          collecting the locations from which phone numbers interact with other phone numbers (along with time stamps).

          Just trying to make sure we're all talking about the same thing.
