Bad analogy. There's some plumes of oil in the Gulf of Mexico that are
getting mapped out very well by only a few ships.  You don't have to
examine every molecule to find parts-per-million oil, or to figure out
who's oil rig the oil came from.

And you don't need to look at every packet to find abusive traffic
either - in most cases, simply letting the rest of the net do the work
for you and just reading your [email protected] mailbox and actually dealing with
the reports is 95% of what's needed.
