Yeah, me too; btw, I meant that I was the one initiating my version of 'paranoia', not you. I've got a healthy dose of it, 'specially after the last decade semi-deep in the DoD. And we're both right to be concerned about the people employing it; it's not that they are BAD folks, in the main, but constant exposure to that environment 'corrodes the soul' as Tom Clancy put it; every incremental bit of 'mission creep' in the collective mindset makes it easier to justify what could be viewed as abuse with a dispassionate examination of the circumstances. I believe that same saw about trading liberty for security gets neither; that's one reason I don't have a dot-mil email address anymore...
