    DHS word usage story

    The Department of Homeland Security monitors your updates on social networks, including Facebook and Twitter, to uncover “Items Of Interest” (IOI), according to an internal DHS document released by the EPIC.
    http://animalnewyork.com/2012/02/the...r-these-words/

    On Facebook (one of the words), some of us pirates are posting bursts of extremism trying to target many of these smart terms.

    Someone posted this haiku:
    Bacteria sleet
    Pirates recall erosion:

    followed by "now who could be knocking at my door at THIS hour?"

    Reminds me of the lines from the movie "Enemy of the State"

    Congressman Sam Albert: [on TV] We knew that we had to monitor our enemies. We've also come to realise that we need to monitor the people who are monitoring them...
    Carla Dean: Well, who's gonna monitor the monitors of the monitors?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I've tripped probably a quarter of those words on Cyburbia in the last three weeks alone
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Can you say "person of interest"?
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    I'm upset! They left 'CTA' and 'METRA' off of that list. The Godfather™ is NOT going to like that!



    Anyways - YIKES! saying anything past 'hello' makes you a suspect. Also, how many people do they have on their staff to monitor all of that (is this really just a 'job creation' ploy of the BHO administration, instead)?

    and the context in which you used "dirty bomb" was soooooooo inappropriate. But probably not so alarming to the DHS.

    I too am shocked at some of the names not on that list, specifically MTA (The NYC Subway Service). Port Authority does not necessarily mean NYC PA either, many many cities have "Port Authorities".
