On websurfing records as law enforcement tool

My own web browsing history includes lots of pages on computer security, searches for info on the Asian Bird Flu, a list of the best places to see moose in Canada, and instructions on how to build a trebuchet. If I'm going to be tried, I'd rather be tried on what I've done, and not because some idiot read that and decided that I was planning on launching computer virus-infected moose into Detroit.
-badmagic, responding to a defense of a Justice Dept request that ISPs retain surf records for future possible use by law enforcement.

From this post full of disturbing links.
