Re: SpaceX just launched 143 satellites...

It's an accomplishment for sure but I'm not that excited to know there are more ways to track us. :mm: I don't think there's anything to worry about... we all carry our own personal listening and locating devices with us pretty much 24/7 anyway, which the gubmint can listen in on us and lock in our...
