It's not necessary to do this kind of surveillance on everyone. In fact, it's probably a hindrance if one must sort and analyze all the junk data that exists. For instance, who really gives a crap about some 12 year old playing Minecraft? There are literally hundreds of thousands of people doing that with voice and text chat going. It's simply stupid to collect meta-data much less a full session. Pointless and a waste of resources.
    They have multiple levels of software screen the material before a human ever lays eyes on it.

    Or did you really think there were people actually reading all that stuff?
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      That must be why T-bo is still running around. If I was going after wanna-be's he'd be on the list...
      Credo quia absurdum.

      Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman
