It appears that the dish has to specifically target a communication to listen in. This means that it wouldn't be possible to monitor her all the time.
Thinkagrams would probably be 100% monitored, but things like having info about the location and status of all friendly units would probably still work.
Interestingly, this would be a potential way to DoS the dish. Have Maggie make a thinkagram at the same moment you attach a stack of archons. Charlie would have to decide if he should provide the tool + leadership bonus to the archons, or listen in to the thinkagram.
I wonder if the dish can disrupt a link. Charlie "guessed" the make-up of the volcano link. I wonder if that was because he saw it form, or just has a better imagination/breath of experience than most other rulers.
That would be potentially lethal to the 3 GK casters making up the link.
