With all the drama and pathos that plays out each and every day here in the Linux blogosphere, the temptation to equate the stories of today with classic tales from the world of literature can sometimes be overwhelming. Take the world of Linux desktops, for example. For years the users lived happily under the reign of GNOME 2; suddenly, Unity and GNOME 3 appeared on the horizon, and that simple world changed forever. GNOME 2 was banished from the castle grounds, and loyal subjects across the land fell into a deep state of mourning.

No -- Authorities should monitor social networks to gather intelligence.
