It's a fair assumption that practically everything you do on the internet is being monitored in some way. So, for example, you might want to reconsider whether reading this blog is worth the effort. I wouldn't want to damage your credit rating or anything.

In any case, there is a larger question about whether high percentages of communications using electronic devices are also being regularly probed at a level and intensity that is much greater than the public fully understands. This is what those drip drip revelations of NSA snooping suggest. I don't think it's unreasonable to suspect that practically every interaction you have with an electronic device could be under scrutiny, to a degree that would make even Orwell's corpse blush.

Again, watch this if you want to be alternatively scared and pissed off.
