No word from the Chinese ISP or the FBI (see my posting of Oct 16)

Surprise surprise. The domain contact for the Chinese ISP that has been hitting my Linux server has not answered my query. Nor has the FBI, who I cc'd on the query and to whom I sent a separate note. Not that I expected either party to get back to me.

As far as the FBI is concerned, multiply my complaint by millions and you can understand how woefully under gunned the authorities are in this brave new world of cyber crime and (dare I say it again) cyber war. We simply need a new model. Not bigger federal budgets. Not bigger contracts to the "beltway bandits" who have profited so handsomely from business as usual. At least cyber privateers would be self-funding and self-liquidating. Which as I think about it may be why the idea will never fly. Decentralization. Big money going to those who bring in…big money, and not to those who have D.C.-based sales organizations wining and dining their long-time buddies.

Stay tuned.

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
