If a tree falls in the forrest...

If someone is using DoD space strictly -internally- then who the hell gives
a damn?  And who the hell would ever even know?

That having been said, I did speak to an NCIS (Navy) guy some time ago and
he told me that yes, there *are* parties that do and have announced routes
to various bits of DoD space over the Internet, and some apparently have
deluded themselves into believing that this is somehow OK.... like as if
this was all just "open range" upon which they could graze their cattle.

Personally, I found the very notion both ludicrous and disgusting.
