    Clearly they are being proactive in their Freedom of information responsibilities!!!

    "Please note that the MOD Counter Terrorism Science and Technology Centre is part of the Ministry of Defence and is a public authority to which the Freedom of Information Act 2000 applies."

    Has the el-reg noticed what areas the CT unit is looking to boost investment in!

    "In FY 07/08, the CT Centre is focussing its attention on exploiting 3 key themes, namely “Social Network Analysis”, “Understanding Terrorist as Groups Or Individuals” and “Information Exploitation”

    The most dangerous thing

    is when webalizer is left on the default setup and shows secure and 'hidden' login portals etc. for admins and content editors.

    haha, well spotted there Aaron.

    social networking analysis is top priority to all 'authorities'. of course it is, because it is really dangerous to them. if people get together in large numbers they can do a lot, so this has to be closely monitored, controlled and censored.

    eg. our comments have to be 'reviewed', censored and even reported to 'authorities' in some cases.

    doesn't it ElReg?

    ever heard of chemtrails? maybe.

    ever publish a word about chemtrails? of course not. nobody will.

    enough said!
