Some of u.s. get squirrely when we learn that a new find address from telephone number aptitude is being tooled, honed, and implemented. We’re already quite aware of the Big Brother efforts of governments who, under the guise of security (personal, public, political, governmental, and therefore, national), cross the bounds of privacy. Only the other day in Levine Breaking News, there was an article-or blurb-on the well-known activities of a United States government who, soon after 9-one-one, began collecting the telephone records of American citizens-“ordinary Americans,” that is-to reconstruct the history of “every telephone call made within the country,” reports USA Today, as reiterated by LBN e-vigilant. Other than the odd speculation that the massacre was generated only within the US being silly, the feeling that 1 is being “watched” does not bode well for so many of already paranoid folk who understand if one team has the tech (in this case to get a phone record, a phone number, and, if they wish, to find address from telephone number, and so on.) it’s possible and even likely that there is going to be leaks and cracks in that same technology…turning out to merely empower those they’re looking for-in the wrong places to start with. I mean, how many of the billions of telephone calls made, and how much of the likely millions of bucks spent to tap those records will originate with suicide bombers, Taliban members/followers, or, as speculation has it, government players? Closer to none, I suspect.
The possibility that collecting such data can only facilitate steps that follow to find an address from a telephone number, get court approval, and visit said address to continue more justified surveillance. And, what’s more, the irony isn’t lost on readers who read, two entries later on the same news day, that an FBI initiative, by way of evidence and cases thus far, reveals the “wrongdoing by public officials at all levels of government is deeply rooted….” Again, WHY are those very same officials accessing the call-history of Joe effing Blow?
In the same respect, it is also a complicated double valence for those of who need measures to safeguard ourselves from the scammers (or worst, the terrorists). If, for example, we get ripped off online (yes, it happens to the smartest of united states), the find address from phone number step is an imperative, a godsend. We cannot allow some unidentified or unidentifiable dinks (or so they THINK they’re un-catchable) get away with anonymous abusing of our minds, souls, or pockets. So the reverse directories come in handy for many reasons-right and wrong.
