********WAR AGAINST INTERNET********



*MICROSOFT + YAHOO = ANNIHILATION*

now that Microsoft is making its move and merging with Yahoo the Internet as we know it may be just days away.

Microsoft, undoubtably in complete control by the Bush Dictatorship, is increasingly finding ways to spy on people using backdoors to their operating system.

Meanwhile, Yahoo has been aggressively censoring communications (e.g., emails) and monitoring conversations.

Yahoo and Microsoft are two of the greatest spying organizations in the world.

The merged entity *will* immediately begin trying to spy on every keystroke from political dissidents to the emerging, global police state.

The end of the Internet is near. Microsoft + Yahoo is an unqualified disaster for the human race.
