Almost all phone calls in the world are routinely scanned for "suspicious words" by various governmental agencies\' computers. You have probably heard of Echelon, the international surveillance system. And there are other, and more to come! The European Union is planning its own EU Phone, Fax & Internet Surveillance System. In Germany, all international calls are already automatically scanned by the Bundes-Nachrichten-Dienst. Even Austria is following suit.
