    Here's the previous Raw Story exclusive on this:

    Guess this is nothing new, and they're all probably doing this sock-puppet thing, and if the technique was to snare some real terrorists, and potentially
    save lives, then that would be a great thing, but I suppose there are concerns about use of the software for the wrong reasons.
