Wankers!

Who would bother with the following totally sad, useless and overall piss-poor disclaimer?

(BTW BMWguys, it ain't unlawful and it is highly suspect for you to suggest otherwise. See? I'm copying it.)

was popularly supposed to have said:

A hell of a lot of organisations do this, and goodness only knows why. They stick the disclaimer at the bottom so once you've read the email you then get to the legal guff, AND they seem to entertain this notion that a legal disclaimer will somehow automagically stop someone scanning the email in transit.
There is a simple solution if you want only one person to get an email and be able to read it: encrypt it with modern twin-key encryption. You don't then need the legal guff or the non-legit copyright notice; any bugger intercepting the thing will have a job on decrypting it.
Granted, security services can and do break codes, but even they have great difficulty doing it. Increasing cipher block lengths can stymie this, too.
Problem is, this can be done automatically by a geek with a brain, and geeks thus equipped are relatively cheap to hire. Lawyers hate this; technical know-how eliminating the noble and expensive art of legal chicanery is just not on, they say.
