Re: You can read my SMSs but you can take my WhatsApps from my cold dead hands

You misunderstand. I’m simply asking two questions:

1. Are we ok with lawful intercept?

2a. If not, why is nobody saying this in these discussions?

2b. If yes, why should one messaging format be privileged and another not (ie why should we accept interception on one and not the other)?

I’m not saying there’s an argument for interception (or against it). I simply want to know if LI even crosses people’s minds in these discussions, and their opinions are on the area as a whole.
