Barry, My Liege :
A new system has been established to protect Whistleblowers' identities from government [that's you, My Liege] spying.
It is called Strongbox and it is sponsored by the New Yorker magazine.
Here is the cut and paste URL : http://www.newyorker.com/strongbox/
It is a huge step forward in protecting First Amendment Rights. And, it will be a big step in providing the investigative reporters from New Yorker with leads to potential stories of national interest.
While the Wall Street Journal has installed a similar system, I believe it is less trustworthy than the New Yorker system because the WSJ is now owned by Rupert Murdoch.
Anyone wishing a secure submission of documents or secrets is advised to investigate the site. According to an interview with a spokesperson for the magazine, there are several steps taken to protect the identities of anyone submitting information. After rigorous testing, several hackers were unable to break the system.
We are happy that the free flow of information will be enhanced, My Liege.
Your faithful servant,
