Now ISPs can read your email—legally

The U.S. District Court in Boston recently ruled that just about anyone can read your email for just about any reason with impunity. This is a shocking miscarriage of justice, especially compared to other flaps of late, such as l'affaire Gmail.

What's next? Spyware for Email
There's a new service that automatically embeds spyware into email called "DidTheyReadIt.Com." If you sign up, you send someone a message and just append “.didtheyreadit.com” to the end of the address. So, for example, I might address an email to jon@pgp.com.didtheyreadit.com, and the message is then processed by the service.

PGP is free for personal use. I'm learning to use it, and if I can learn it, anyone can... Wink
