Security Through Stupidity

I purchased a Dell server today for work, through our account representative at Dell. At the end of the order process, just before confirmation, the Dell representative said:

Federal law requires that we ask what will this server be used for?
I asked, incredulously, "Why the hell does the federal government care?" to which the Dell representative replied "PATRIOT Act".

I certainly feel a lot safer knowing that terrorist are on their honor to tell the truth when buying servers from Dell.
