    Keep in mind. Either your data/transmission is not encrypted and can be read by a third party. Or it is encrypted so that an agency like the NSA will save the data until it might deem it worthy to decrypt. ,-)

    As a student I had worked for some time at a computer store. One of the co-workers used to play WoW when there were not so many customers around. Maybe some IT guys at the NSA or their contractors occasionally do similar things (e.g. play MMOs at work, write scripts for their hobbies, etc.). It would be a waste of computing resources to not use it in any way possible. ,-)

    Default NSA chief says PRISM protects World of Warcraft

    Well, I'm satisfied this all above board.

    Have you ever spoken with the Inspired? These foreigners appear to be plotting to take over the land, but nonetheless their religious fervor is impressive.

    No, there doesn't. That's just ignorance on your part. Maybe you should correct that before you go insulting people. Here's a hint: there's a difference between gathering and analysis.

    That said, OP, it's a safe bet there is not any truly safe or secure ecomm available to civilians. And there isnt' anything we can do about it.

    Yes they can monitor it if they get the right subpoenas signed by a judge forcing Turbine to co-operate (the data goes to the DDO servers and back out, so yes they can) and spend the time probably developing something to allow them to listen in. No they won't monitor it, that's utterly stupid.

    Also: Who thinks the NSA can monitor a phone that's turned off?! Maybe iuf it has a discrete audio recording device added to it after market, but no, cellphones don't work like that, they require electricity, if they're not turned on they can't transmit to the cell tower.

    edit: they could also wire tap your home internet connection and capture the packets as they go, but I doubt they will do this. It's much more likely that 99% of NSA activity is checking for things that've already happened (phone calls to blacklisted numbers) they've little reason to spy on your traffic unless they're already suspicious of you, there aren't enough people in the US to 24/7 staff an operation where all communication is watched/listened to live.

    Is a phone that's turned off really a phone?

    They don't need to tap your home connection, when they can simply tap the router backbones (which they already do). The point isn't whether there's enough humans to monitor traffic, that's what machines are for. What the analytical machines are doing, and who sets the rules for the machines, who knows?

    Yeah, but in the era where people cannot find where they are going without a smart phone with GPS, and cannot let one hour pass without posting that idiiotic random thought that went through their head on their facebook page, you think that these phones get turned off?

    Pffth!

    If you are all sure-fired concerned about someone listening in and reactivating your phone while it is "off", yank the battery. Poof! Now it's REALLY turned off...
