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.

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 http://tinyurl.com/m2hnbv6 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
http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll412.xml 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
http://stopprism.org 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
http://www.hushmail.com 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.
