Comment Re:I have not been served (Score 1) 159

Suppose later I do receive an NSL or court order. Can the government legitimately force me to lie and publish statements saying I haven't? Is there any law that gives the executive branch the authority to order us to lie?

How has anybody not figured out that questions of legality and legitimacy are irrelevant?

Incarcerating more than 100,000 Japanese Americans wasn't legal or legitimate either, but won't somebody think of the children!

Hopefully this will lead to an increased emphasis on endpoint security, rather than the current "we have firewalls" attitude that's far too pervasive.

(For people who actually care about real security, that is. I've got no sympathy for those who just want to control/censor/monitor Internet traffic.)
