    every keystroke you make is available to anyone really interested
    ASSUME ZERO PRIVACY

    The closest you will ever get to privacy is if nobody cares what you keyboard in.

    You got something to hide Bad?

    The most email I get is forum notifications and I don't really care if they know about it. I have heard that the act of trying to secure your Internet communications only invites suspicion. But I don't need something to hide to want to protect my privacy, and I think most others feel that way too.

    I am an open book. If they want to read my e-mails.....they better check which account I am using, as I have one for theatre, one for crap, one for business and personal.

    If I have hot lover e-mails that I don't know about....man I'm gonna be pissed!

    I second that. Protecting something does not mean one is hiding something.

    Sidenote:
    Although I am not an U.S. citizen, the NSA has done us a favor by preventing a terrorist attack in Belgium.
    (cf. NSA records stopped attack in Belgium | Flanders Today)
    Yet, it seems to me that either the U.S. government likes fulfilling the role of a Big Brother, or the U.S. government has reached the point of being paranoid.

    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."
