    From what I understand of Carnivore (now known as DCS1000) it's a logging
    tool more than anything.  It doesn't stop anything from going through based
    on content, it just logs the content and the Feds come in later and retrieve
    their box.

    Yahoo could be screening stuff themselves just to cover their backsides.

    Or, they could just have a lot of increased traffic due to last weeks
