Interesting Google talk on privacy. Not sure if there are any good answers here but it’s interesting to note that in England if there is an assumption of privacy between people then that will hold up in court unlike the US.

Comment Disemvowelling

Q. All the vowels have disappeared from a paragraph I wrote! What's going on? A. We did it. Someone (a moderator, one of the Boingers) was expressing displeasure at your remarks. The technique is called disemvowelling. It deprecates but does not delete the remark. With work, the disemvowelled text should still be readable.
