Using encryption badly seems to be kind of an anti-sweet-spot for companies: if you use plaintext you don’t wind up being asked to redesign your systems. Use strong e2e encryption, you have a chance to prevail in court. Use crap encryption, you go to court and lose.

This is a story that keeps happening over and over again. Call it the Hushmail principle. wired.com/2007/11/encryp…

It also bugs me that providers do this, because I strongly suspect it will be used to establish legal precedents that in turn get escalated to attack proper e2e encryption.
