It is about the same as grabbing SS number off of Google. Which is possible.
Sometime people don't have stand alone webserver and don't configure them
But I see your point. The government will look down on P2P as a national
threat...but what will a law really do? We all know that the CAN-SPAM act
stopped spam right? lol

Forgive me for being suspicious of a Web site that is less than one month
old and that is presumably based in Eastern Montana, ...
There seems to be a thread of articles purporting to trumpet the security
dangers of open source/peer-to-peer computing all of a sudden. While I
don't doubt that there exists the possibility that information can and
is leaked by these technologies (due, likely, to them being misused and
misconfigured by clueless newbies), I am afraid that this is the beginning
of a ground swell attempt to restrict these technologies in the name of
"national security", thereby allowing the government to do what the RIAA
and other well-meaning" capitalist money grubbers have failed to do.
Information should be free.
