    Only a matter of time before big brother pokes his nose into everything, just as he always does and has guys in black suits hiding in the bushes to pounce on you or come busting into your house commando style.

    Read about this a while back when the news buzz was out about social sites playing a part in your job interview these days as well. It's called ' freedom of speech for a reason ' but I tell ya what, Canada is looking pretty good lately.

    The document also describes techniques for verifying alibis — such as checking messages posted by a suspect on Twitter disclosing his whereabouts at the time a crime was committed

    OMG, that is so insanely ridiculous. Have they EVER heard of automation?

    Like I mentioned about the whole job interview thing...they are taking personal information posted about you, by you or for you into consideration as to if you get the job or not. IF they are seriously going by anything remotely close as a standard, every celebrity in the world will soon be unable to get a job, otherwise, it would wage a descrimination war on hollywood.

    They get the weirdest crap posted about them and still get million dollar pictures made. We should all get press agents and have them throw hype and trash for us...heh.

    What a load of socialism crap this is turning out to be.

    Me thinks it might be a good idea to take a leaf out of FTC's book and start placing clear disclaimers.

    E.g.:
    Dude with AK - disclaimer = this is a fake plastic replica and those bullets are also fake - I'm a budding prop designer.

    For the wear abouts fishing - lots of people don't know that camera devices with embedded GPS (think any phone with a camera and some standalone cameras) will add the GPS meta data to the jpg when it's taken.
