RE: IRC spying to increase

Hi Ali,

Steve did no such thing (I also read that article.)
Steve wrote a 'spybot', to connect to the ddos net he found and invisibly
log all conversations.
He did NOT however have any software analysing these conversations.

What the .gov is thinking of doing now is meant for extremely large networks
like EfNet. 
I don't think Steve van singlehandedly monitor the whole of EfNet.

A waste of money. They won't find anything...... people are too smart 
to use chatrooms to discuss elite stuff.

Another reason to vote Bush out. :-)

Also seems like a lot of money for something I seem to remember was done
singlehandedly by Steve Gibson when he was trying to track DDoS IRC bots ...
