If the traffic is garbage (NSA fake social media accounts, intrusion attempts) what is the difference from stopping spam or bonnet traffic? Is some intel operative’s traffic wanted anymore than the 419 spam from kids from a 3rd world country in a cyber cafe? I guess I don’t see this as censorship since I am blocking due to the type of traffic, not what is being said. There are already some programs that block traffic to and from known malware sites, who cares if the malware comes from the NSA or Ethiopia’s Information Network Security Agency?

Maybe John McAfee needs to take his company back and release something that really tries to protect you. Buy the Platinum Edition and get a free suppressor! (Offer not valid in Belize)
