You do not have ANY idea of how clueless people can be,
do you? :-)

Again, I've seen in REALITY that it was NO PROBLEM for
me to obtain "classified" and "secret" documents via a
chain of unencrypted and unprotected WLAN and "Windows"
shares. No e-mail magic involved. I could even use the
company's printer to tell them the surprising facts. :-)

I think so, too, especially if legislation "encourages"
the providers of those services to store all the messages
they handle for "investigation purposes". You can imagine
the standard arguments for that procedures...

This is a result of "PC on, brain off". :-)

Popular intant messengers sometimes are even more problematic,
i. e. when the terms of use for those services state that IF
you use the service, you delegate all your rights on the
messages written to the provider of the service.

I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. :-)
