40. Again, good points. As ponderous as this media is, I would not go back to killing trees.

In some ways it is hilarious to see how little substance is brought forth. In other ways it is tragic to see how busy some people are trying to derail discussion of very serious issues, lead the discussion astray, create panic and paranoia, etc.

However, since this thread has started, I have received some insider information about the IT department at the law firm. That info is in one of the posts herein. Apparently, they are the subjects of a subpoena for e-mails and the IT dudes have been working at e-mail retrieval in the last year, recovering e-mails that were deleted. Sound familiar?

There is a reason why some people derail these discussions. It isn't because we are discussing baking cookies. It's because the kind of cookies we are discussing have to do with surveillance and spying. IT comes with the territory (typo intended).

At the same time, there is this to consider. Thousands of people read these threads in the first 24 hours, at least some times. We see it, if not write it, here before it appears in the WA Post and elsewhere. And, those disrupting, or going off topic, or asking questions non-specialists need to ask, provide a very real aspect to what is being discussed and often enhance the discussion. In the WA Post, they don't get to chime in or ask something and get an answer.

As ponderous as this media is, I would not go back to killing trees for my info.
