You can say that, but *vay'* is not an indefinite subject. It sounds in 
Klingon like the difference in English between /It's known we kill 
prisoners/ and /Someone knows we kill prisoners./

My advice is to use *net* whenever possible, because it deserves some 
love and you'll look spiffy using it.
