Great post! I remember an article I read not so long ago about the dept. of homeland security (I think; could have been justice) getting a court order which they served to all search engine providers, including google. The exact wording was legalise, but the gist was that they were ordered to provide statistics and information regarding hits and search requests, and any records of excessive requests for "suspicious" searches (such as making plants 101).
To thier credit, Google was the only search engine provider that refused the order and backed it up with thier corporate lawyers. Uncle sam ended up backing down on that one.
The point is, if that order was made, the slippery slope has been paved. What's to prevent the government from browsing through online virtual disks at their leisure in the name of ....whatever. I'm not paranoid I'm just realistic, and unlike many people I know, am aware of what *can* happen. I don't have a years supply of ammunition and stinger missles in my basement, but on the other hand, I would think long and hard before trusting my personal information to someone elses server.
