    Read a copy of this on CNN. Personally, I liked the comment that said something to the effect of,
    "This just in: NSA employees find ways to convince bosses to let them play WoW at work".

    Step one: Create a char
    Step two: Make a radical political or religious statement in global chat
    Step three: Sit back and take down the names of players defending the radical view point.

    Well all the times now that when chatting with a friend in WoW we would jokingly throw the words 'Pine Gap' into an unrelated conversation... I hope it gave some NSA operatives cheap thrills.

    [Ed. On second thought... perhaps that's the reason they went there.

    I think the writer of the article had it wrong. Nothing about the type of training you can receive in the game according to the article makes sense to infiltrate an MMO. There was one team fps combat game where you could play as a terrorist faction against the U.S. I bet that's the one that set them off. That's just speculation, of course.

    you might be right,but why would they keep scanning wow or rift like mmorpg? clearly defiants or "the horde" can't attack U.S.

    Maybe when you're tying to aggregate every form of communication in the world, you need game chat logs too? I dunno. I got nothing against it really. If the NSA wants to know what times I raid or get the run down on my latest ideas for raid composition to down Regulos, more power to them.

    While I'm firmly against this sort of spying, I think the reasons they gave were fairly clear.

    Less hunting for Americans with radical viewpoints and more about the possibility that the anonymous chat channels could be used to pass messages between active "bad guys."

    Maybe I've been watching too much "Homeland" recently but communicating via MMO seems like a brilliant idea to me. Also I'm assuming that their stated reason for monitoring is all they were looking at...take that for what you will.

    I'm still don't understand the uproar for this entire spying craze. I thought it was always assumed you don't search google on to make a bomb.

    /emote has marked you as a Terrorist. You will be sent to Gitmo within 30 seconds if you do not disengage from combat with the USA.

    The New World order is taking over one online game at a time, while they plot underneath the Denver world Airport.

    I know of people in my college that have their drug dealers contact them on World of warcraft because they were to paranoid to use a phone lol. California does crap like this all the time on online games.

    for all those derps constantly pointing out that they played wow for x years and therefore know everything about every aspect of every MMO...

    ...you now qualify for a job with the NSA.
    but don't expect it to be a happy place.
