Anyway to rule this out other than hearing it from John? How long before we
begin to seriously consider it or assume it?

And if there was a NSL, why not shut down? Why put users at ongoing risk??

That would explain keeping silent, NOT making up lies about me and

Perhaps he knew that you would keep the ‘conversation’ raging, therefore
bringing it more ‘into the light’ than silence itself would prompt. Since
you’ve been ‘on the case’, cypherpunks is 90% this subject matter, and 10%
other cruft.

Again, perhaps that was the intended purpose.

Ie, in a different thread about the same subject (after he poked and
prodded you earlier in said thread…)

censorship, abuse, exposed collateral innocent (ha!) parties.

We also told Best log files are the dirtiest secret of the Internet,
none are
secure, none private, none singular, admins and websites lie about using
them, exploiting them, deleting them, needing them, stealing them,
about them, inflating them, rigging them. They pay for the Net, thus not

So Best is going in the tried and true direction, many others have
And if determined he will avoid depending on anybody for support. More

the Internet, the planet.

Brave new growth to kill off the cowardly old.

Praise and support controls, don't seek it or succumb to it. Enjoy
yourself, Best, to entertain audiences. Cheers and keep at it.

I don’t know; neither do you. Selling old ass log files on purpose isn’t
full of much sense if you’re constraining yourself into thinking ‘inside
the box’. JYA doesn’t seem very in the box to me, but hey…
