RE: Children ... (AKA disclaimer)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Maybe I missed the point, but the tone of the discussions on this thread
have been downright serious. I thought the disclaimers that have been talked
about here were just someone's attempt at humor.  I hope everyone knows that
emails are seldom very private because it is so easy to forward them, even
inadvertently  :)

The advice given politicians is to treat everything you say to anyone as if
it will appear as the front page headline in tomorrow's newspaper. That is
probably good advice for emails too!

I doubt it. E-mail is generally considered non-private, and a lot of 
mailing lists have specific wording declaring that anything posted on the 
list is considered public. I don't think you can declare anything 
confidential once it is a matter of public knowledge.
