Boing Boing has a post about a person who got arrested for using lynx, a text based web browser. It seems a person looking at the logs for a Tsunami relief site determined that the unusual entries created by the lynx browser indicated an attempt to hack into the site. Somebody from BT (the site's operator) called the cops, who busted down the lynx user's door and arrested him. Curiously, the BBC news account of the story makes no mention of the browser issue.
