Re: Spot on

It's a bit tiring to have to limit what I'm saying in an email because I know I'm sending it to a GMail account.

It's good practice to always limit what you say on the internet, including email/ GMail and any other medium which holds any data/metadata (El Reg included).

Security on the internet is temporary (next massive leak in unknown days), and if you have some info that is extremely important, you will not want it to be leaked/hacked/shared/stolen. So it is better to presume what you said on the internet is equal to what you said in a broadcast outside, encrypted or not. With that mindset, you will never say what you never wanted to be put out there.
