WTF? Why Does Anyone Assume Emails are a Secure Form of Communication?

In recent months the following agencies and persons have had their emails made public: Sony Pictures, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, Coca-Cola, Vladimir Putin, . . . need I go on?

Why would anyone say anything compromising in an email?

First of all, the things being exposed in many of these emails don’t need saying. They are simply spleen venting or trivial. Of the things which are illegal or severely compromising, why would anyone put that in print?

Effing stupid if you ask me. (And, yes, I know no one is asking. Americans have had a long history of volunteering and I am just trying to keep up.)
