  •  I challenge you to data mine google and facebook (0+ / 0-)

    Pick any one of these services.  I challenge you to try to data mine them with just a PC and typical commercial software tools at hand.  You wouldn't be able to do it.

    What the NSA is doing is that they have direct access to these servers.  You don't have that.

    So your argument that just anyone can data mine it is technically wrong.

    Add to the argument that anyone can data mine email and I would say for certain that you are just misinformed.
