conversation, it could be considered 'ephemeral' and discarded." The
judge's response? This was "a ridiculous standard that would allow any
state agency to delete anything". The full story at:

Interestingly enough, this was actually the way some proposed handling
e-mail when it first became an issue. Apparently, no one sent this exec
the follow-up memos.
