[liberationtech] archives public

I assume that most everyone on this list shares your realism but still I
think the list info page shouldn't misinform people regarding that?

Besides which I, and probably many others, have made the experience that
there's generally a difference between what could happen and what
actually will which leads to me thinking that it's worth guarding as
much of my privacy as possible.

Knowing that this is generally not bullet-proof, but knowing also that
sometimes 'the other side' has to make choices how to spend their time
and energy. Which makes it worth putting up as many fences as possible.
