Am I paranoid or is it true?
A friend told me today to be careful of what I post on here because the BATF motiters these forums and investigates what is said and tracks it by IP Address. Of course I heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend so I don't know if there is any truth to it. I was told members and a Mod of a different gun forum were investigated for comments made on line. Anyone hear anything like this or know if there is any truth to it?

It's true. In fact a marine was recently bagged by FBI and secret service for his posts on facebook. Everything you do online is monitored. EVERYTHING

I knew Facebook was monitored but had never heard about these sites being watched. There have been several people arrested for anti Obama posts made on Facebook.

Everything is watched.

What? With Obama in office? That should be a given. Especially since he authorized spying on Americans. The National Security Agency (NSA) is definitely busy these days.
There is no such thing as privacy anymore in America. Privacy was once enjoyed in the grand ole Ozzie & Harriet days of yesteryear. That too is long gone, as is democracy.

If you're doing nothing wrong and your weapons are legal then there should be no problem.
Always be aware of what you post on any forum.
As far as your comment on arrests for anti Obama comments I'm calling BS.
If that were true then all penal institutes would be maxed out. :D
We still have freedom of speech and the second amendment so get out and vote in November for those who support them.

I don't know that any anti-Obama remarks will get you arrested unless you are threatening to take a life.

I do believe gun forums are watched for any potential threats.

I am watching...

They can actually use the wifi signal in your house as kind of a sonar and create a digital picture of you WEARING your tinfoil hat.... I was hoping they'd let me know how mine looks on me :rolleyes:
