Re: [tor-talk] Email provider for privacy-minded folk
IMO, only stupid idiot doesn't use https with gmail.
That's why I think all talkings about gmail and beeing hacked is useless.
Let him set "Use always https" in the gmail settings, then log out, log in, change password and secure q/answer and that's all.
This should be about Tor and Tor close stuff...
