Re: No, it's not settled

"Don't forget it's also how Peter Sutcliffe (false numberplate) got caught" may be true but since the local crime reporter found, at the time of his arrest, that even his neighbours thought he was the "Ripper" and had repeatedly reported him to the police only to be rejected because he did not have Geordie accent. My point being that good detective work could have caught him much earlier without any reliance on technology which is the answer to all this nonsense about banning encryption.
