In The Clear

In my comments, Westy, in addition to providing some great WEP and networking tips, points to a Slate article by Jack Shafer, E-mail Confidential, in which the author turns his "175-pound Samoan attorney" loose on the "extraordinary 114-word 'disclaimer' sloshing around at the bottom" of an email from a Time, Inc. journalist. Pithy observations abound, such as "[S]ending a confidential or valuable message via insecure e-mail is a funny way to preserve a secret," plus there are links to the disclaimers dubbed the longest, most PC, and most incomprehensible by the Register in 2001.

[Update:] Speaking of disclaimers
