: I know someone who works in law enforcement and says that the FBI or DEA keeps a "list" of the people who order books like WAR or The AS reference guide, has anyone heard of this. Also about a week ago, i was reading posts on here about equipment that can trace where these messages are coming from, I am at a university where I have an e-mail account. The thing is though that i can get on almost any computer here, so no one computer has my info. Plus there are 1000's of students with e-mail accounts who use the same computers. I don't think I have anything to worry about but I can't help but be a little paranoid. Do you think there is any chance
