    I understand the need for such a policy but where I think things get tricky is when they push the line on which piece of information is deemed useful. After all, information becomes useful in context…

    We live in the information age where everyone is looking for answers. Unfortunatey as the article pointed out, letters home during WWII were edited.
    I have to somewhat relunctantly agree with this policy. My only though is for tech smart person (maybe at Google) to design a filter that the email and blog could be run through, this way the superiors who were ultimately responsible would not have to be concerned with this. This filter could also be modified as the need arises.
