Negative Disclosure

Some security related web sites have started to proclaim that they have had '0 Police Information Requests', or something to that effect.  This is intended as a 'dead man's switch'.  When they do get a police information request, they intend to remove that statement, not update it to 1.

This won't work.  When they get a subpoena with an accompanying gag order and remove that statement, they can probably be charged with obstruction of justice and contempt of court and likely a few other things as well, so those statements will never be removed.

If you were wondering, I haven't gotten any information requests either - anyone can simply get the information from Google and don't have to ask me!
