I immediately place such questions under suspicion. Why do they want to know why? They are selling a product, people are buying the product - end of story.
I guess my paranoia is showing.
A dab of paranoia here & there is what has kept our species going ;-)
I followed the link and read the comments, but did not otherwise participate either.
I guess that makes two of us!
(Welcome by the way)
It was an interesting read for me as well. But don't those people know that what I can read, the government can read? The site may be on the up-and-up, just curious as they imply, but Big Brother can flag them in an instant.

I didn't participate either, but trust me, answering that question there probably wouldn't increase your footprint much. If you had a NICS check done when you purchased your firearms, you are already on the list. If you have a CCW, you are on the list. If you buy books at Amazon or with a credit card, you are on the list. If you post in a forum like this one you are on the list. Yeah, the government isn't supposed to keep records like that, but I have no doubt at all that is what they are doing, especially under this guy. One look at how the Justice Dept. will tell you that. One of Borats first acts was to re-assert the surveillance policies of Bush AND expand them. They may not be looking at your info- and the sheer numbers protect you until you become a subject of interest, but if you do becomes such a subject, there is very little they won't know once they do a little data mining.
