Time will tell how safe the site really will be. They have to know that the NSA, among other agencies, will find a way to get the info it wants from here.

This is one of those times when I said to myself...''well why didn't someone think of this a long time ago''..but am happy to hear that it is now a reality. That being said, GGmaShelila has a good point but as with many things...time will tell. Lets just hope in time it ends up being a positive thing as intended.

Thanks for the sharing of the info/article Roseann.

I think it's a great idea. It needs social media icons...and also we should use it to keep an eye on our wild horses in holding pens to ensure they are not being shipped to slaughter. Shipping federal protected animals to slaughter through covert operations is poaching. Stop 'em in transit, pull their butts over and make them turn around.Citizens arrest!

How about one for whistle-blowing on farm abuse and food processing?

a good idea - but enforcement is key too. Also squashing the desire at source - stop the consumers from wanting to buy the stuff.

Hopefully, law enforcement will follow up.

We should put Yellowstone bison on there since many of Yellowstone's last remaining herd is currently being sent to slaughter covertly so by park superintendent Dan Wenk. I call that poaching as he is a disgrace to his job as steward of the park and preservation, acting at the cattle industry's behest and for sullying Yellowstone into a slaughter killing ground.
