Dave Cridland typeth:
| Absolutely. To put it another way, this proposal is attempting to 
| move the responsibility for the users' privacy onto foreign domains. 
| Users no longer have to trust their own server, but the entire 
| network, to act on their privacy requirements.

and as we pointed out in several other mails, it has never been
differently. you have to trust each server and even each of your
peers, that they will not forward your presence info to the FBI.

a shift in distribution rules, which will be just as strict
as before, won't change that.
