- I would disagree. The use of a password makes it more like a letter and not a postcard. (Especially when both ends are password protected) A public Facebook post or tweet would be a better postcard analogy. Encryption would be like encrypting the text on the page of a letter before mailing it. An extra layer of security, but should have no bearing on a requirement for a warrant.Nov 30, 2012
- E_mail is as safe as putting a dollar bill on every telephone pole in the world and expecting it not to be ganked. i think two seperate types of web address fed secured and not. This way when we use it to vote we wont paranoid it away.

- regular mail is exactly as safe as a dollar on a light pole. Anyone could open your mailbox and take out a letter to read with no expertise whatsoever. A warrant is still required for the government to do it legally though.Nov 30, 2012
- ah k theeee usps is the last bastion of agency self sufficiency, i think they still have no off budget enterprise bonds issued. For the f.b.i. TO USE said recording or searching of otherwise private documents as admissible in a judiciary court, it must be under the colourings of federal law which is under the 14th amendment and subject to equal protections and considerations, meaning regardless of hearsay or unproven assumptions every u.s. citizen must be treated as equal to ALL other u.s. citizens for as we know any government agency or law that has a bias intent purpose or outcome is mooted as such by the 14 th amendment ( the 11th amendment commerce guys get a little legal wiggle room.) but like all constitutional amendments, it must be taken with paramount supremacy.
Hence "sure you can read my shiiii... but i getsta read yours as well. so when a bill collector corp.calls and if they record me i state immediately that im recording them, to which they then refuse and hang up.Dec 1, 2012
- I understand your pointbut a password doesn't mean much. To use your example, I need a password to get into Facebook, too. I was referring more to the actual transport method of an e-mail-- across the public internet sometimes through state (ie university) routers and such. And what if transport crosses international borders into countries that do allow snooping? As mentioned elsewhere- don't put anything on the internet you wouldn't want everyone to see. Should it be that way? No. But that's the reality of it. If it's not this government, it's another, or it's some "hacker" group that can access your data.Dec 1, 2012
veerily so any time that a gov agency anywhere has the capacity of snooping, the people deserve the same exact right, unless a judge decree's from findings by a jury of approximate piers that one lose's said rights and for what amount of time. otherwise there is no reason i cannot do the same as another whether in a gov. agency or corp. or a single random civilian, this was what was fought over with great suffering and terror. soooo in keeping with this adverse legalism there must be a Internet vote and nothing else shall ever sufficeDec 1, 2012
