    To avoid misunderstanding, let me clarify:
    To the best of my knowledge, neither me or my friend has done anything in
    violation of the law, or anything close to it.  The point was that if I
    wrote an innocent question or comment, the authorities could think it was
    suspicious, and then waste our time by questioning us.  For instance, I
    was going to ask him what he has experienced since 9-11, but that could
    look suspicious, and so I took the prudent course of action to say
    nothing at all.
    I just want to make this clear.  I probably should haven't written the
    above paragraph in the first place.  Since I cannot change that, I have
    written this clariication.  Please forgive me for the wasted bandwidth.
    Ah, but it is not totally wasted.  I used nearly 30 lines to make a point
    that I will now put forth in one sentence:
    I am of the opinion that we should not report observations or produce
    TLE's of satellites whose elements are not made publicly available by any
    government of this planet.
