The Spy Who Came In From Northrend...

Nothing left to discover indeed.

OH SNAP~! Just when you thought it was safe to go hide from prying/spying eyes in Azeroth, the stupid-stupid-stupid NSA is all up in our grill, too! Checking out our business! Looking through my mail bags and watching my every derp move!

To quote:
U.S. and British intelligence agencies have worked to infiltrate networks of violence-prone individuals who might unite for a common cause. And in some cases, the spies are also targeting networks that aren't regional terrorist cells — they're online gaming communities, according to the latest revelation from documents given to the media by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
"Exploiting Terrorist Use of Games & Virtual Environments" is the name of a 2008 NSA document being cited in coordinated reports out Monday from The Guardian, ProPublica andThe New York Times.
 The reports describe spy agencies' push to infiltrate systems that allow millions of people to closely collaborate and even exchange money — all through a veil of alternate identities.


Well, I got news for you, Mr. Federales -- you can check my identification at the door, cause I am in-like-Flynn. If you want to watch every derp-y move, every misstep, every transaction, then be my guest. I have spent 159 days on my main character, a shaman, who has nothing to hide.


The rogue, on the other hand...

  1. aaaiiieee!!! Who is the mole? Would be interesting to know what class they pick. Probably use Rogues to spy on, well, Rogues because they're seriously shifty characters.
