> It's not *your* computer but theirs, and so asking for an email provider
that runs only free software on their servers is actually being concerned
about *their* freedom.
The email provider does NOT run only free software. NO computer in this world
does that as of today. I wonder why it is so difficult for most people here
to understand this. Firmware (Intel ME, microcode, BIOS) IS a program and it
is NOT free. And there is NO online service provider running on CPUs without
Spectre and Meltdown. NONE. It has been demonstrated by top security experts
that all these systems are extremely vulnerable and to this moment there are
only mitigations because fixes require actual new hardware. You won't fix
that with with recommendations, endorsements, theories, philosophies or links
The problem is much bigger than your petty little computer. I wonder why you
don't see it. There is no real freedom or respect for it in is such
environment because there are no devices which do this, i.e. it is physically
impossible. If you don't have the freedom to communicate privately - who
cares about anything else? The biggest issue today is surveillance.
Accept it or create something new and give it to humankind.
