Update part du trois (Part the three)

OK, count me all in for national security of the homeland, vaterland, and even U S hinterland--plus favor fulll employment for otherwise on the dole, pudgy, living in their parents' basements, and for God's sake at least wear a robe when you role play every waking minute of your pathetic-dreary-afraid-to-talk-to-real-girls lives--but to have the United States of Irrational Security and formerly Great Britain pay so many gamers to "infiltrate" video games like World of Warcraft looking for actual by gosh terrorists that they end up playing with each other, things have gone a trifle too far.

Shoot, Ameriduh, terrorists have passed messages in porn so hire me!

[Computerworld - American and British spy agencies apparently believe there are real-life terrorists lurking among the elves, gnomes and the trolls of online gaming worlds.

For the past several years, the National Security Agency (NSA) and its British counterpart, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), have secretly monitored activity and harvested data from massively multiplayer online game networks like World of Warcraft and Second Life....

Just last week, the Washington Post reported on how the agency is daily collecting location data from millions of cellphones around the world, including those belongiong to Americans travelling abroad.]
