Better post ac for this one.

Or..if you have sensitive information in your posession and they don't want it encrypted, perhaps those of us with access could just store all our working data in the cloud in the clear.

Considering some of the information that would contain it wouldn't be long before I was in jail, were I stupid enough to try and prove a point, but I would then be a political prisoner and the costs of fixing all the stuff that leaked would run to a pretty penny.
