The highly encrypted email service reportedly used by NSA leaker Edward Snowden has gone offline - and its administrator claims the company is legally barred from explaining why.

It all started on October 26, 2001, the day "W" signed Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001.
The Patriot Act
Our Congress, in a knee-jerk reaction, virtually unanimously gave away our freedom. The terrorism perpetrated upon us by our gov't has only metastasized as a cancer from that date.
And to think we used to call ourselves "the land of the free." Our government, established as and once a republic, has failed and gone rogue. Can a system so broken be repaired, when it is designed in such a way as only to be correctable by the same people who wish it broken in the first place?
Be n Franklin said we have a Republic for as long as we can keep it. Well he was spot on. It's gone. Too much damage has been done (imo) to repair it. Too much bad blood, distrust, fear and anger.
Diss olve the fed and all states should secede from the union.
Years ago developed an email server with unbreakable encryption. Yeah, some of you techies will soil in your pants screaming that is not possible, but it is, and can be done quite easily. Anyway, MIBs (yeah really) showed up and told us we cannot do this. So we didn't.
To think you guys think it has ever been diffrent.
Only thing that has changed is the tools.
American spooks have and always will do this.
Have no loyalty to your country you get what you get.
Have you noticed that those outside the USA cannot donate via paypal? I dont know if this is deliberate.
USA - UNITED STATES OF AMERICA The "B E A S T" (?) from Revelation (Chap 13) of the Bible, that "Makes all... ...he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, ... " "The Monster is revealing himself...".
Mr Snowden, come to Irkutsk, please
With his knowledge he was actually using a third-party email encryption service.... really.
The only secure email encryption is the one that you can run from your own system... email to third party servers can be intercepted, sniffed while in transit to the server. You got to get it to the server before encryption....
It's evident that any service like lavabit needs to be run outside of the US. I'm sure Edward Snowden has a space on his sofa for you Mr Levison.
i think the crash is in the air. only the people worldwide can stop the men behind obama. but the people are sleeping. perhaps putin is the only man who could help now. putin i beg you for the whole world to make that evils a end. please do anything befor it is to late.
This is meaningless. The NSA can wirelessly access any computer or server and read the data therein
That is not true.
The NSA can only access those systems they are granted access to and those they manage to hack through flaws or backdoors.
A security-literate system administrator can keep the suckers out if he really wants to.
This is meaningless. The NSA can wirelessly access any computer or server and read the data therein, so what good will a "highly encrypted email service" do? NO good at all.
What is to be done with the cult of greed?
I fear we have only begun to wittness the length that greed feeding on its fear of it's own demise is willing to go to.
What are the people living under the gaze of the all seeing eye to do? Our ideals of freedom have become morally bankrupt. How low are we willing to go for the scraps we are deemed worthy of?
An honorable decision indeed! Lavabit is one of those who still believes in the right from wrong. Bravo!
Use a LiveCD like Tails (Debian based with TOR), Encrypt your emails with Enigmail, use VPNs, use an offshore email provider that has its parent company in Hong Kong, servers in Switzerland, DNS from Canada, TLD in Colombia and security certs in Israel. Talk about reducing risk. Your business is NOBODIES business but yours!
