Thanks for the notice, Carlton
The headline was misleading.
- 49% are opposed to snooping under all circumstances.
- 47% are opposed except under specific, documented circumstances
- 4% are unopposed
That IMO is not an unexpected or distressing answer. The concept of a
court-issued search warrant is understood and accepted when physical
privacy is to be breached, and court-approved wiretaps of telephones have
been with us for decades.
So I don't think it unreasonable that similar allowances would be
considered acceptable in digital space.
The number of people who are OK with warrantless, untransparent snooping --
in low single digits -- is my positive takeaway from this survey.
