This is an amazing social experiment

Consider what was done and remember that our government could do to anyone what was done to the soldier.

Would reaction be the same if an email had been sent simply saying "enjoy your day"?

Would it matter if prior to sending the email, excessive pornograpy and communications with escort services were located in the inbox?

What if this story was made up and never even happened at all?

Consider the attention paid to this post by everyone here. No one was injured and no property was damaged but sending 2 links related to 9/11 fom an open email account has generated a profound negitive reaction. Its stunning.

When the government gathers or analyzes personal information, many people say they're not worried. "I've got nothing to hide," they declare. "Only if you're doing something wrong should you worry, and then you don't deserve to keep it private."

This post has created an excellent thought experiment.
