Default Don't be a Petraeus: A Tutorial on Anonymous Email Accounts

From the EFF. Worth a read, and a worthy recipient of your Christmastime donations if you're so inclined. They do good work defending our freedom from the overreach of governments and corporations.

Anonymous email wouldn't have protected Petraeus. He painted crosshairs on himself as soon as he refused to take the fall for Benghazi. The administration was going to make him pay for that one way or the other.

I don't follow the background intrigue. Nothing would particularly surprise me though. Ya know what pisses me off? Now that some placed dudes got their privacy violated, congress wants to do something. I should probably be happy, but it really puts their self centered depravity in the spotlight. Violating privacy and rights is ok for us proles, but it becomes an issue when they see the laser dot on their buddy's head. Unbelievable... I'll be interested in seeing how much it gets watered down, if and when it passes...
