Standing for ACLU NSA Suit

In the wake of the court's denial of the U.S. National Security Agency surveillance law suit, due to a lack of "standing", I have contacted the ACLU about my situation. I got a reply:
Acknowledge: Standing for Spying Suit (Ticket# LTK69016040512X)

Thank you for contacting the ACLU.

Then later that same day, I received a second message from the ACLU:
