it is still information, and information is always useful.

Not realy. The intelligence behind the information can be inaccurate or incomplete rendering the information useless and potentially dangerous because of the false sense of security it can give.

As long as the system exists, does the ability to easily and conveniently access the information provided by the system somehow inconvenience you?

It would if someone near me thinks the green sign on his desktop is accurate and ignores a potential threat because all is supposed to be relatively safe. I'd call being caught up in the blastzone of an ignored bomb a real inconveniance wouldn't you?

Anyways, please keep in mind that we are all consenting adults here, and that the very existence of this theme forces you in no way to actually use it.

True. Just pointing out that not to much trust should be put in the system behind it. - Aug 31 2004

The (Christian Nations) of] Europe

I wouldn't necessarely call them Christian nations as quite a lot of European countries have a clear seperation between state and church.
A part from that in quite a few countries the number of Christians has been in a decline for many decades. Recent polls in my country show that the younger generations tend not to go to church. In fact most don't believe.
Other religions have shown an increase in followers, mainly as a result of immigration.
The term "Christian nations" is therefore outdated and doesn't realy fit the situation. - Aug 30 2004

A public threat level indicator like the one used by the US government isn't going to do much good. It only helps to sustain the fear and siege mentality that was caused by the 9/11 terrorist attacks whilst doing very little for security.

In fact the system can work counter productive because it can give a false sense of security. When people see a green indicator they will think an attack is unlikely and be less alert. A smart terrorist would use this to his advantage.

This is precisely why the British, who unfortunately have a lot of experience with terrorism, don't use such a public system. - Aug 30 2004
