Surveillance and Privacy from Government

Wherein a judge suggests that perhaps the delete key should actually delete things, rather then hiding them from the user (and allowing them to be found by later parties), and, failing a technical solution, that the law should recognize that deleted material should not be considered in a court of law (within reason).

I think it's an excellent idea. As the judge says, none of us are so perfect that our every thought and casual comment could withstand scrutiny.
