    I know its just me being paranoid...but...

    Does anyone else think its a bit of a coincidence that there have been major outtages at Microsoft, Google, Apple, Amazon, eBay, Nasdaq in the last few days, so soon after all that Snowden/NSA stuff came out - and today I'm having problems on my newsgroups....
