    Default The internet is a panopticon

    If you always think you're being watched, then you will self censor.

    Is this when I post a picture of my penis to disprove the OP?

    Bet you wouldn't post a picture of your penis alongside a picture of your face.

    It works so well for corporations and law enforcement to self-police, I think you may be on to something.

    Of course there is this: http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-pol...-suicide-watch

    It seems even if they know it wasn’t serious they are willing to put you in jail.

    Feel sad for the kid. It was a stupid but obviously sarcastic comment.

    Waste of resources and a total over reaction by the state.

    Of course anti terrorist laws will never be used against over crimes, not even sarcasm.

    Oh no, that was a sarcastic statement. I'm going to jail for life. I have no chance as I'm a repeat offender.

    duly noted point. is there not some irony that a technology which expanded communications so greatly, perhaps the biggest thing since the printing press, is equated this way? self-respect does the job better.
