If you like Freenet (cool that you do!) you could help the project: try 
to catch Freenet users on your network and report the results here, so 
developers would get valuable info.
If you do catch someone, you could even (anonymously?) help him set up a 
more secure node, and then try to catch him again.

The only problem that I can see here (and it may be kind of serious) 
would be: what if your bosses realize that you use resources, work 
hours, etc to catch Freenet users, and then you don't actually ban them? 
If you don't have a good excuse for that, may be better just forget the 
whole idea.
