I never said that you or anyone else held "subversive" content on your 
machine, nor /even/ that "subversive" content would be an inherently 
evil thing. I have lately come to the conclusion that a little 
"subversive" capability is necessary to securing one's freedom. (Which 
means that I would /not/ lay information with the BKA or Interpol even 
if I knew the first thing about your business. Which I haven't asked.)

Those people I know, are not members of this list (at least, I don't 
think they are). They are, however, members of other lists I am on. If 
anyone tells them that The Cloud is coming to gobble up their data and 
add it to its own massive data store, with no protection other than a 
username and password, they'll no doubt find something in the charter 
documents of the United Nations Division of Sustainable Development 
("Agenda Twenty-one") to offer as evidence why they would never dare 
surrender their data to such an institution.

In sum: I simply wished to point out that certain persons might have 
reasons, even more compelling than the simple business reason of 
preventing accidental loss of data, to guard jealously the concept of 
storing one's own content on one's own machine. Those who might feel 
that their governments would accuse them of subversion, would have the 
extra security concern of /unauthorized access to data/. Or in this 
case, /government seizure of data.
