NetMon is excellent.  And it does send out BONE frames telling the
world just who is using it from what workstation [Tools -> Identify
Network Monitor users...].  Of course, if no one's looking, what
difference does it make?

However the potential for abuse is definitely there.  I've abused it
myself many times.  It's great for collecting BASE64 encoded
passwords, snooping your boss's mail before he gets it, etc, etc.
