Operation Troll the NSA

Operation Troll the NSA

Operation "Troll the NSA"

The world-wide outcry about the NSA surveillance program has reached another level. “If you can’t beat them, troll them,” seems to be the motto of a website that was recently created.

"Troll the NSA” is a new site ("http://trollthensa.com/") that was built by Buzzfeed staffers, The Huffington Post reports.

Basically, they want to get as many people as possible to send an email or make a phone call at the same time containing a specific script that can be found on the page.

The text includes terrorist jargon and other keywords that are usually tracked by intelligence agencies. By doing this, the site owners hope to jam up the NSA’s scanners.

So at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 12, participants in the movement organized on Twitter and other social media under the #OpTrollTheNSA hashtag, will do just that, as per the plan.

There are dozens of misleading words throughout the text including “overthrow,” “bomb,” “death to millions of Americans” and “blow up,” to name just a few.

It doesn’t even matter that the rest of the text talks about a stressful job, news articles and "Breaking Bad" since the scanners are sure to detect all these words.

"The site urges Internet users to send this message out at 7:00 PM EST on Wednesday, June 12, 2013."
