I don't know that I can even do that much, but I agree, it is not for me to fund data collection for the government. If they want data collected, I can make a switch port available and charge them co-location fees to house a system they provide. As long as there is a law or court order, I have no problem with that. Otherwise, the data collected will get thrown out of many courts anyway. No probably cause to be watching.
