More on e-mail disclaimers

Slate has an article up, E-mail Confidential, about those stupid e-mail disclaimers I wrote about recently (via Slashdot).

A more realistic disclaimer, from one of the comments on the story:

This is an email. It is the electronic equivalent of a POSTCARD. It has been split up into hundreds or thousands packets and blasted throughout the globe. Logged, scanned, filtered, parsed, grepped and heuristically analyzed by countless computers as well as humans. [...] If you for one moment think, believe, hold notion, or otherwise have the slightest inclination that anything you send via email is confidential you are an idiot. If you for one moment think, believe, hold notion, or otherwise have the slightest inclination that anything you send via email is only being read by the intended reciepients you are an idiot.

The Slashdot comments reveal a few other sites out there comparing and collecting these things. I figured I couldn’t possibly be the only person annoyed by them.
