Oh, I don't know about that.  

What about proving that someone is pointing a [gun] at you, who has
already lets you know he's pointing a [gun] at you via deniable means of
some kind, but who categorically denies such when asked about it directly.
 In that vague scenario, I would imagine that there is some utility in
proving conclusively that someone is pointing a [gun] at you if only to
warn others around you about the threat.

I, of course, live a similar scenario.  The main difference is that it is
a group with a somewhat unethical agenda that poses the threat, and who
swear up and down that (a) they are all really, really nice people, and
(b) that they have no actual interest in my affairs.  Both assertions are
quite false, but proving it is another matter -- and difficult too, given
the ignorance and stupidity currently in fashion at the moment.

But I don't mean to provoke an off-topic discussion in this thread. 
Please do carry on.
