Corrects the names of privacy settings on Facebook.
This extension relabells the privacy options when you post on Facebook, to explicitly remind you that ASIO are watching.
e.g. "Only Me" becomes "Only Me and ASIO".
Never forget who's watching with this extension!
Metadata retention hasn't yet become law in Australia, but it soon will be, unless we #StopDataRetention.
The recent terror laws that did pass into law gave ASIO the power to spy on the entire Internet with just 1 warrant. They also now have the power to read and even modify files on the computers of innocent non-suspects. If a sinister official abuses this power (e.g. planting child porn in an ex-girlfriend/ex-boyfriend's computer), there's nothing you can do about it. They have legal immunity, and if you even post on social media or write to a newspaper about the matter, you'll be jailed for 10 years. Does that make you feel safe?
I've written this as part of the #StopDataRetention campaign.

I can't take credit for the idea itself, I just wrote the code. I saw a photoshopped image of the idea a few weeks ago, but honestly can't remember where. Please tell me if you know where the idea came from.

If you want to make sure this extension isn't malicious, look at the source code. (There should be a link to it somewhere on the installation page.)
