Email Provider Forced To Shutdown By Feds For Not Helping Them Spy On You

Those who say we may be heading toward a police state must suffer from a form of blindness...we are already there and have been for perhaps decades.
Dare we believe that the NSA, et al, here or abroad, cannot tap into anything they please?
If you do not 'help them spy on us' by willfully handing over information, does this mean they won't go in and dig that out on their own?
We have passed the point of no return when it comes to online privacy.
There is NONE, none whatsoever, so we must find ways to deal with that.
HOW? I'm sure I don't have a clue, but there must be ways.
While I salute your stance, I must imagine shutting down won't save much, for when the NSA crowd wants something, they simply take it.
All the best.

    "...This experience has taught me one very important lesson: without congressional action or a strong judicial precedent, I would _strongly_ recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States..."

Somebody here speak with forked tongue. Him have "congressional action" and "a strong judicial precedent". These have determined that those psychopaths acting under the guise of "the US" are free to violate any law, renege upon any "treaty", torture, assassinate, murder, war with cowardly 'drones' -- that is the congressional action and judicial precedent of the white man.

Do not look to the white man for "justice".
