    They always could.

    Most people may not realize this, but, the IRS is "Extra-Legal:"

    --They can spy on you.
    --They can arbitrarily put fees on you.
    --AND, IF they say you owe more than you actually do, OR, accuse you of "cheating" on your taxes...it is up to YOU to prove your innocence, not up to THEM to prove your guilt.

    --There are also many in the IRS who flat out use their positions to intimidate people.

    Fuck them, so there's no expectation of privacy behind a password protected account?

    If you go get a gmail account, watch the ads. They are based on past websites you've visited, purchases you've made, your email content, etc.

    If you get an account with a VPN you won't as much worry about prying because they have to not only have your password, but the secured private network access, which has to be authorized by you.

    Its been like this for about 15 years already. I'm surprised you guys don't know this.

    All those free email accounts available? Yeah, those have a TOS that says its okay. Some even say the content of your email belongs to them. I think it was AOL way back when.

    I don't think you need the gmail account either, I think they pick up on cookies and they also do deliver, or not delivery sponsored ads based on your ip location.

    I'm not sure about the content of the gmail email itself though (Trust me, I wouldn't put it past google), but the government....



    Think it might be time to trade it in for a pirate flag and an island girl!
