I heard about your system on Corbett Report.  The reason I would want to join is do not want NSA 
checking my emails or other forms of communications.  Am I protected with your site.

Also, if I join your system, do I drop my Cox Internet Connection or still keep it plus with emails 
do I get to keep my Outlook or hotmail accounts?

Stop being exploited, learn to eat healthier at home, learn to live a Earth Friendly lifestyle, 
shop local, and buy more American but  moderate consumption.  We need to rethink and restructure 
the system.  It is not sustainable.

Hello Bill

You may have some misunderstanding about this email list. I'm no tech, but what I can say is this and others will no doubt correct me and give more info too:

(1) this is an email-based discussion/ support list for people using LibreOffice, an open source alternative to MS Office. It does not require you to join anything (although you can subscribe for nothing to receive replies to your emails - hence I've cc'd you, since I don't know if you subscribed or not). The good news is that because LibO is open source, the chances for the NSA to have a backdoor access to this suite is vanishingly small ... although, of course, using Microsoft as your operating system already means that the NSA have a backdoor into your system - that is to say, that Microsoft is a surveillance enabled system in its own right. This is a link to a google search for microsoft nsa backdoor giving 524,000 results.

(2) this will in no way stop the NSA from reading your emails. If you want to do that, you have some options. One is to review find out who voted "No" to the Amash Amendment and lobby those to actually represent the interests of the American people in matters of privacy and civil liberties (2nd and 4th Amendment Rights) rather than fuel the paranoid Security Industry agenda for Full Spectrum Dominance. Another would be to visit as well as choosing software alternatives from

(3) If you wanted a more secure email, sign up for Hush Mail which claims to encrypt your emails and not to record IP addresses or just create phoney Google accounts, and use a proxy or a VPN to log into and use these.

(4) This site does not provide an ISP, so you will have to keep your existing Net provider unless you decide to opt for an alternative.

I hope this helps clarify some things for you.
