Here’s something you don’t hear about very much these days.  A court put a stop to Federal investigators snooping through searching emails without a warrant.  Personally If I never saw another "Smiling Bob" ad again it’d be too soon, but that doesn’t mean that the feds shouldn’t have to stay within constitutional limits.  Like getting a search warrant after showing probable cause.

Appeals Court Rules for E-Mail Privacy

CINCINNATI (AP) – Federal investigators overstepped constitutional bounds by searching e-mails without a warrant during a fraud investigation related to an herbal supplement company known for its “Smiling Bob” ads, a federal appeals court ruled Monday.

The real bummer about this is that I’ll just bet you won’t be seeing mention of this story on mainstream news media.
