Correct. If Osama Bin Laden had been editing Wikipedia, before his death
of course, through some account in Pakistan, it would have been rather
reasonable to respond favorable to a request for information. But "plenty
of reason to think the government would be interested in Wikipedia access
logs" No, massive amounts of information about people doing ordinary
things like editing articles about Homer Simpson is kind of the opposite
of intelligence; it IS the haystack, not the needle.
