And one of the worries re the dataretention scheme is the on-again/off-again referral to web links. I have elderly members of our computer club who click things. They just do. Heck, how many Australians have been sucked into the "nigerian" get rich quick schemes? Or the ' "I love you forever" now give me your money so I can come to you' schemes? 

Many people are gullible. One would hope that police would use common sense and contextual information, but who knows?
