斯诺登的邮件服务商宁可关闭也不与美国政府合作

作者:未知 来源:新华国际

新华8月9日电 据美国科技博客Gizmodo报道,提供特别加密和私人邮件服务的Lavabit公司8日宣布关闭,并且留下了一份隐晦的声明作为解释。Lavabit是斯诺登常用的邮件服务商,所以这很重要。

在声明中,洛达尔·利维森很少谈及到底是什么原因使他突然关闭了站,不过看起来他宁可关闭站也不愿意配合政府调查斯诺登事件。以下是声明全文:

用户们:

我被迫做出一个艰难的决定:要么沆瀣一气地对抗美国人民,要么放弃用10年苦工才建立起来的Lavabit。经过严肃的思考,我决定停止提供服务。我希望我可以合法地告诉大家,什么事件导致我做出这一决定。但是我不能。我认为大家有理由知道现在正在发生的事——修正案应该保证我可以在这种情况下畅所欲言。但不幸的是,国会刚刚通过了法律禁止这样做。现在的情况是,我不能告诉大家过去6周发生的情况西林瓶厂家
,即便我两次提出合理请求也不行。

那么现在要怎么办呢?我们已经准备好文件,要在第四巡回上诉法庭上为维护宪法而继续战斗。如果判决对我有利的话,Lavabit还可以作为一家美国公司重新运行。

这次经历给我上了重要的一课:如果没有国会的行动或强大的司法程序,我强烈不建议任何人把自己的私人数据交给一个与美国有实质关系的公司。

你忠实的,

洛达尔·利维森

Edward Snowden's Email Provider Shut Down Rather Than Comply With Feds

Users of the extra secure and private email provider Lavabit are out of luck after the owner shut down the service on Thursday offering only a cryptic message as an explanation. Lavabit is the preferred email service provider of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, and yes, this matters转向节型号
.

In a note posted on , Ladar Levison goes into very little detail about what compelled him to shut down his service so abruptly, but it seems likely that he opted to pull the plug rather than comply with government requests about the Snowden connection. The note in full:

My Fellow Users,

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.

What’s going to happen now防雨布
? We’ve already started preparing the paperwork needed to continue to fight for the Constitution in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. A favorable decision would allow me resurrect Lavabit as an American company.

This experience has taught me one very important lesson: without congressional action or a strong judicial precedent, I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States.

Sincerely,

Ladar Levison
