Thrill-abortions

[ #29736 ]

Dear Log,

«I say we use the same strategy on the NSA that George Clooney was suggesting celebrities use to stop Gawker Stalker: if every American started randomly prank-calling any number in any phone book from Korea, Pakistan, Darfur, Indonesia, Iraq, Venezuela... or any number of dozens of other wobbly little countries... then they'd be so swamped mining scads of worthless information, they could never find out where we're scoring our medical marijuana and/or obtaining our heedless, cosmetic thrill-abortions. Just a thought.»

Or, say, pinged weird foreign web servers with HTTP headers full of random data. Who knows what apparently random data could be hiding, or not hiding at all?
