This kind of monitoring is probably a direct violation of 18 USC 2511, as

from norcal or all the recipients of those 2 million packets to monitor.
Since norcal isn't your customer, I don't suppose you have any paper
showing they gave you permission to collect and publish information about
Its too late to take back your post. Think first.
