Lesson number one:  Posting is not storing.  If you care about  
something, keep a copy under your control.

Lesson number two:  Don't rely on 'free' services, since they're not  
there to do you a favor.[1]  If you have something to say, why not  
create a Web page?[2]

I strongly recommend viewing Eben Moglen's talk "Freedom in the Cloud".


[1] Granted, I'm hypocritically using a Gmail account.

[2] Actually, I'm of the opinion that the entire premise of the Web  
needs to be reexamined and a new system built to replace it.
