Maybe all of us who run Linux exclusively should pretend to be an 
'unhappy employee' and report ourselves.  Be real nice to the BSA when 
they show up, but waste as much of their time as possible.

Explain to the BSA investigator that you 'have some government 
secrets' on some computers, "so this nice security guard will accompany 
you". Take the guard aside and whisper instructions: "it he tries to 
access any secrets, shoot him". Make sure the BSA goons hear this.

It helps if the guard is a Barney Fife type. Be sure to issue him enough 
bullets to go around.
