14. oh, come on, this is a free yahoo account.
Trying to compare that to an actual political party or corporate email account is silly. Anyone could have set up that account, and anyone can access it from any terminal. Guessing a password to a web-based email account is nothing like breaking in to a private server. The people deciding on the constitutionality of laws in this country recently asked "what's the difference between email and a pager?" (John Roberts), and I'm supposed to have any respect for "the rule of law" in the electronic domain? The people in our government who make and interpret these laws have no fucking idea what they're dealing with - literally, fucking "series of tubes" no idea - so I don't respect them.
