    If he used a good printer, four point text should be legible, no?

    You'd just need a few hundred secretaries and proof readers ;)

    What the hell? None of the stuff you just posted can't be confirmed in any way. The website is just saying things with out providing proof, which is ********. I am pretty sure this website is just trying to defame Ladar Levison for whatever reason, or not telling the whole story. Maybe because he wants to fight it in court everyone is trying to destroy his customers faith so they don't donate to support the legal fund? Seems like some BS to me.

    Actually, after handing over the keys, the only way to keep credibility and protect Lavabit users would have been to shut down the servers... I don't think that there was any (legal) possibility for them NOT to hand over what the government requested.

    The only way for that is to not know them yourself :)

    See <-http://cryptohippie.net/AnonAdmin.html->.

    One would really need to trust Cryptohippie for that ;)

    And how would one convince an angry judge?
