Things to think about while sitting in traffic #2

I wonder if spam is actually helping us fight the war on terror.

Seriously, think about it -- if terrorists are using free, throwaway email accounts to communicate with each other in order to avoid being detected, you just know that they, too, receive a daily onslaught of emails inviting them to buy Viagra, increase their penis size and refinance their homes.

So, 2 questions just beg to be asked:
  • How do the terrorists know each others temporary, disposable email addresses?
  • How long does it take each terrorist to sort through the mountains of spam in their inbox and bulk mail folders every time they're looking for a secret message from someone @ al qaeda HQ?
