Not holding my breath. People need to eat, they have children to protect. They also know that if their voice is powerful enough to be heard, they’ll have the NSA or the Israeli subsidiary (or is it the parent company?) scrutinizing everything private they’ve done since the internet exist and evaluate what can be used against them.
