Comment Re:ITs the end of the small business mail server (Score 2) 459 459

Outsourcing it is cheap because it needs to compete with these roll-your-own systems. If small mail were totally blacklisted, I wouldn't be surprised to find mail services prices bump a bit. Afterall, they'd be the only people with an ISP allowing port 25...

On what grounds? I wouldn't say "never had one." If they find it in Google cache, it means I didn't care enough about the privacy of that information to alter my settings to prevent that. TFA doesn't suggest all employees must do this, only those up for hire or recert.

If it's an "insecure link" (which is the whole reason SSH was developed ANYWAY), then ANY connection is technically compromised. You can't just assume one that was established "sometime before" is more secure than a new one now. If you carry your assumptions through consistently, they're both compromised and you should just disconnect.

Maybe I'm an optimist, but uh...pretty sure we've been here before and censorship didn't really cut it for Iran's government. The Neda video, Twitter, Facebook, Tor usage, cell phones. There's just too many ways for information to flow from Iran (or Burma or wherever) for any censorship to really be effective. The best ideas would be cutting off ALL access, or white-lists, both of which create serious issues for Iran in terms of being connected to the world.
