Back in the 1960's it was considered fashionable to have an FBI file (i.e., the FBI is keeping a file on you). So fashionable, in fact, that my mother deliberately caused the FBI to start a file on herself. How does one trigger this?... Well, in the 1960's, one could call the FBI on the telephone, ask whether they had a file on you, and if they didn't, they would start one.

My mother has probably forgotten that the FBI has a file on her. AFAIK it has had no impact on our lives.

However, you may want to consider whether you want to go there. Especially with an administration coming in that has a rather more authoritarian tone than anything that we've seen before. Given that, this post from 12 years ago is interesting and worthwhile reading. Note, this is something that moving to DreamWidth is not going to fix, not a bit, not at all.
