как известно, среди последствий истории Эдварда Сноудена было так же и закрытие одного из почтовых сервисов, что он использовал, Lavabit:

I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit. After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations. I wish that I could legally share with you the events that led to my decision. I cannot. I feel you deserve to know what’s going on–the first amendment is supposed to guarantee me the freedom to speak out in situations like this. Unfortunately, Congress has passed laws that say otherwise. As things currently stand, I cannot share my experiences over the last six weeks, even though I have twice made the appropriate requests.

что ж, остальные[1] добровольно решили последовать той же дорогой:

[W]e have reconsidered this position. We’ve been thinking about this for some time, whether it was a good idea at all. Today, another secure email provider, Lavabit, shut down their system lest they “be complicit in crimes against the American people.” We see the writing the wall, and we have decided that it is best for us to shut down Silent Mail now. We have not received subpoenas, warrants, security letters, or anything else by any government, and this is why we are acting now.

иными словами, любой, кто захочет предоставлять аналогичные услуги, должен будет подумать не дважды, а сто крат. и без должной юридической помощи, без соответствующего финансирования, готового противостоять безграничным возможностям государства, безопаснее и спокойнее окажется даже не начинать.

we see the writing the wall. подобный сервис больше просто не допустят.
