There has been a lot of talk lately of the NSA's PRISM program. I'm not going to get into particulars because I'm not trying to start an argument. I'm not interested in how you feel about the NSA PRISM program or your interpretation of its limitations (if any).
What I am interested in is what it could lead to. To my knowledge, PRISM has nothing to do with e-mail at this point. However, there has been chat about different e-mail providers reading your e-mail in order to display targeted ads and larger companies handing over data when subpoenas are involved. That's all fine and dandy, but what if you didn't want that? What if there was nothing to turn over if the Government came knocking on your door with a subpoena for somebody's e-mails?
I purchased the domain npmail.us. The idea behind it is to supply e-mail addresses and allow people to exchange e-mails and such without any type of logging. Therefore, if somebody came to me and asked for the logs, I would have nothing to provide them with because logging isn't turned on for that service. Of course, if I start hearing complaints of mail not reaching its destination it would be pretty difficult to troubleshoot, but I haven't had that issue yet.
Right now, it's just a small box out in the cloud, but it could be scaled as necessary. Does anybody have any opinions on this post? Do you think it's something people would care about? I know of at least one person on this forum who is pretty passionate about PRISM and I think he might like it, but would a lot of people want it? I'm just trying to gauge the "general public" point of view on the issue?
