To be fair, the Register may not always be the most factual place, but they do raise a lot of valid points. This is one of them. You may not agree with their muckraking tactics, but what they have to say is often on-target IMO. $0.02
As to the topic of the post, I agree that giving the FBI and other law-enforcement groups as they exist now the kind of powers that they want would be a big mistake--opening up the possibility of a *real* Big Brother state...government regulation is needed to check the worst abuses, but I don't want them checking _everything_ without due process etc. etc. etc.
