How far would this extend...

With regard to the FBI bill, the definition of electronic communication
provider is rather vague IMHO. It seems to cover a BBS, any unix site
(or equiv) etc.

(I deleted the article so I cant quote it)

Anyway if the above is true will this mean all machines that electronic
communication traverses have to have a 'backdoor' so the gov can sit in
their offices and run through the mail spool as root? :)

Or log into any BBS and do the same?

There hasnt been any talk of it as such, probably because they can do it
fairly easily anyhow, but it just seems like another loophole in their
(the FBI's) favour.

_Sometimes_ I'm glad Im an aussie.
