Holy shit, this needs to be a bumper sticker!

Well, while this has to do with phone conversations as well, a huge percentage of spam email, phishing and (above all) illegal torrents and p2p stuff comes from Russian IP addresses. The reason The Outhouse doesn't get the spam that most sites like this get is that Brad blocked a huge number of Russian domains from being able to join up: hence no bots.

Sweden also has a HUGE Russian immigrant population, which may have something to do with it.

Plus: the World's biggest torrent site (The Pirate Bay) is Swedish, and the authorities have tried and failed to shut it down several times now.

All said, it seems the Government would like incriminating information on someone...

Believe me, I get it too. I often despair about American party politics and the fundamental lack of choice you guys get.

Well our choices are becoming more and more limited. It's far more important to look at the candidates themselves than the media hype. This election is a freaking nightmare.

I know. I'm glad I don't have to choose between those two candidates because I don't think much of either of them.
