Clever Dolphin Programs are utility janitorial program that were installed by Internet to patrol Pacifica and clean out any garbage data which may have been generated by the extra-long link distances that exist in this region of the net. One-in-every six dolphin programs has a subtler function as well: they look for any transmission source which is not listed as a legitimate Internet user. In other words, if your physical location (meat) is IN the Pacifica region and you are NOT running clean and open, they have a 15% chance of discovering your attempt to bypass LDL billing every trip. They will then relay this information to an Internet sysop who will probably call Netwatch. At any other time, these programs will interact with 'runners just as real dolphins would, leaping and playing around the gridlines and LDLs of the region. Maybe Rache is right when he says that you shouldn't trust anything that's too attractive.
