tired of hearing about her.

Yes!

Agreed! But still, I wouldn't wish having their email hacked, thats just wrong and illegal...

If you're tired of hearing about her then get used to it.  You have either 6-7 weeks, or four years left of hearing about her.  And it doesn't look like there was anything incriminating about the emails, they're out on the internet now and if there was an issue there, someone would have jumped on it.
Probably not a Goat, either.

This story must be balanced so it is fair.

>_>

<_<

Joe Biden had his mobile phone number stolen by a right wing radio host and distributed to the general public.  :o

But seriously, my first thought on reading this story was "Why is a veep candidate using Yahoo mail?".
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Because she is still a human?

Anywho whatever happened with these guys and the CoS?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

More oddly, why did she set up several private accounts after being made Governer? Public servants in the US are supposed to use a public email addresses. The fact that some of the emails in those accounts may have been wanted in connection with Troopergate just makes it a little more suspicious that the accounts were deleted.

It is sad that privacy was violated, but this information needed to come out at some point because of the links to the ethics review - of course if it had been left to the legal channels it was supposed to go through, it probably would have only come out after the election. Frankly, she was stupid and it was mostly her fault. Anyone dumb enough to run for high office under intense scrutiny from the nation, without securing their private data more effectively, really should know better. No-one is condoning the break-in, but she is just as much at fault for this.

I'm a little sketchy, so I could be saying something stupid, but, what's wrong with having a lot of private accounts? I think I have around 7 email accounts from various providers and websites, sometimes more than 1 on those site (I have 4 on google alone).

It's for my own reasons, but one reason I can say, with full lazy-pride, is so I don't have to switch between accounts per computer. Just assign an email to the computer which automatically uses it with password saver.

I have one an only one per service.

I can think of no good reason to have multiple accounts per service.
