*** I certainly hope you know what I'm talking about.  If not, the
Lavabit owner preferred to close the service instead of being subjected
to a gag order and betraying his customers and convictions.  Nothing

worse.  I won't make you the insult of presuming you didn't hear about
PRISM as well.

solutions.  Moxie's work is an exceptional case for he has an
exceptional track record.

*** I have a preference for peer-to-peer solutions.  I also have the
rationality to take for granted that there's no "my" solution, and in
case you're interested I recently made a point that a purely technical
solution is not enough. [0]
