Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online
It's as if you dropped your letter in the postal service mailbox and knew it would get to the other side, but really had no way to ascertain what would happen in route. Would it be popped open and read out loud to the mailroom at an intermediate stop?

For that reason, here's my advice: never say anything in electronic mail that you wouldn't want your boss, your competition, your mom, or the government to know.
