    I remember reading a conspiracy theory a while back that states that MI5 and or the CIA have a piece of software that picks up web searches and flags ones that look dangerous. Does anyone know what it was called?

    Yeah, that sounds right. Or I've been playing too much Splinter Cell.

    Echelon is the phone scanning system that looks for keywords. It could have been expanded to include web searches, but I think it's a separate system.

    Magic - that's the one. Cheers!

    To be clear, I'm in no way a conspiracy theory whackjob. My cousin is writing his thesis on governmental controls and monitoring of the internet and wanted some pointers.

    Honest.
