Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

Q: How much extra work is this?


Not only how much work, but how much would it cost, including server resources? Would you be willing to pay for this extra level of security?

With the design I have in mind, very little. I tried to make that clear.

Yes. However, a company that claims to be concerned about government invasion of privacy on moral grounds should make this their base offering. I don't think, even at scale, the cost increase would be substantial, at least compared to the current cost of operations.

Don't forget that Google would never do such a thing. They make money from analyzing your emails (along with anything else you give them) to try to shove ads down your throat. Encrypt your mail so Google couldn't utilize the only part of their business plan that is actually bringing in the cash? Lol.
