Distracting the NSA
`M-x spook' adds a line of randomly chosen keywords to an outgoing
mail message. The keywords are chosen from a list of words that suggest
you are discussing something subversive.
The idea behind this feature is that the suspicion that the NSA
snoops on all electronic mail messages that contain keywords suggesting
they might be interested. (The NSA says they don't, but there is no
way to be certain.) The idea is that if lots of people add suspicious
words to their messages, the NSA will get so busy with spurious input
that they will have to give up reading it all.
Whether or not this confuses the NSA, it at least amuses people.
