    a) I am not even a part-time NSA employee to the best of my knowledge. 
    b) The machines are Sun servers and it's quite conceivable they have
    security holes we don't know about which allow access by anyone, NSA and
    more.  There's some concern on the part of the corporate weenies in the
    world admitting that, but I would be more concerned if I did not. We
    provide fairly good anonymity with Anonymizer Surfing and also protection
    against target marketing, cookies, java/javascript access, and routine web
    site usage monitoring. That's all.
