This is a nice short one.  One of the very first and I meant the very first means of communicating on the Internet after those cursed bulletin boards was Prodigy, which is unmentioned in Wikipedia and the like.  Those delightful people reserved unto themselves the right and chore to peer through your e-mails to make sure there was nothing objectionable (nor, I’m sure, salacious, and I’m sure too that hankies came with the job, pun intended thankee).  Users (I was a user) agreed to it.  They might terminate your rights to usage if you didn’t…do whatever.  Not excite them too much.  It was over 20 years ago, after all.

You guys have little worries about privacy?  Geeze.
