Dear all,

This subject is off-topic for this list. Please do not respond to it. 

If people wish to discuss extraneous issues to this Working Group's charter
(), then they are free to do so in their private correspondence. 

Recently, there appears to be a growth in off-topic correspondence to the
various mailing lists of this sub-group. I have received several complaints
from list members about the amount of traffic and unacceptably high 'signal
to noise ratio' on these lists. 

Please note that I will be vigorously policing the WG lists for relevance.

Best regards, Maria

Management FBI

All sgb members,

  How do we rectify that LEA's may need unrestricted access to Whois data
when a report such as this one seems to indicate that the FBI is having some
trouble in keeping it own critical networks secure?
See:FBI Needs to Address Weaknesses in Critical Network. GAO-07-368, April
30 http://www.gao.gov/cgi-bin/getrpt?GAO-07-368

  Such a report does not engender confidence in other LEA's being able to
accurately evaluate other miscreant behavior complaints or illegal activity
in regards to the internet.  Such reports also give me pause as to the FBI
being able to keep any collected data secure, as well as how well my tax
dollar is being spent.

  Yet I am a firm believer that the FBI is one of the finest LEA's in the
world and they always have had and do have my up most respect as a LEA, and
will always get any and all support I can reasonably and ethically provide.
