Makes email "scary" in order to disrupt NSA surveillance

ScareMail makes email "scary" in order to disrupt NSA surveillance. Extending Google's Gmail, the work adds to every new email's signature an algorithmically generated narrative containing a collection of probable NSA search terms. This "story" acts as a trap for NSA programs like PRISM and XKeyscore, forcing them to look at nonsense. Each email's story is unique in an attempt to avoid automated filtering by NSA search systems.

Every time I needed to e-mail, THIS THING POPPED UP! It was really annoying to delete the story. Sorry if you thought this extention was good.

Fantastic app! I relish the idea of making it as difficult as possible for nefariously sinister animals to make sense out of my emails.
