6. A dangerous assumption...

...since that is precisely the opposite of the reality.

That they assume this is the problem. The nature of modern communications is that it can be recorded by the very infrastructure that carries it in total, and retained in perpetuity, storage considerations notwithstanding. When something is possible, and an interest in that something is possessed by someone, what is possible is now probable. And since we as individuals don't own that infrastructure, we should be assuming that every character typed is available to someone and we don't know who that someone is, or what they might do with that information.
