I had a thought/realization today. Considering that LiveJournal is owned by a Russian company, do you think that Russian authorities have access to everyone's protected and private posts, including ones cross-posted from DreamWidth? They probably do, one way or another.

In terms of the U.S. government, I was reading about warrant canaries lately, though it sounds like their use is already on the decline. It doesn't look like DreamWidth has one.

Re LJ: probably (at the very least, "if" they want; at the worst, "whenever").

Re FBI: ah-huh, and now this: http://www.techlicious.com/blog/rule-41-allows-fbi-to-hack-vpn-users-cyber-crime-victims/

So we might as well do everything we ever do online directly from within FBI headquarters. Just sayin'.

I have always assumed that, yes, the people running LJ have access to 100% of the stuff posted here, and crossposted from DW. In fact, I think I used to have concrete evidence of it.
