Can carnivore be used for good?

So since the FBI is getting the ability to install their carnivore system that can track the email sent and received as well as web pages visited maybe they can do something useful with it.

I even have a justification for why they should.

See, many spammers are evil terrorist sending coded messages to a few of their scattered followers. What better way to hide hidden messages than by sending carefully crafted messages to everyone?

So we need to convince the FBI to use this technology to track down and stop all spammers because there's no way of separating the non-terrorist ones from the terrorists ones. And anyway anyone sending spam is guilty, right?

we could even give some spammers get out of jail free cards for ratting on other spammers.

Jail? let people out of jail? We can't do that...that's so, so, unpatriotic.

Perhaps we can provide the informants with the remaining assets of the spammers thrown in jail--after the arresting officers keep a portion for themselves as a bonus for a carring out the will of Lord Ashcroft.

my point was actually similar to joedecker's, just more obtuse. :)

Thank you, thank you.

and for some of my other campaign promises;
Cleaner air,
Cleaner water,
Cleaner food,
A measurable reduction in your chances of developing cancer,
A reduction in the number of people going hungry,
A reduction in total hours spend working,
An end to the war on drugs, impoverished people, and civil liberties.


All it takes is letting me raise gasoline prices to $5/gallon, removing the doctrine of corporate personhood, and dowsing the owners of companies that produce waste products with those waste products.
