Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's worse than that. It also opens up an avenue of arbitrary persecution by the police, of any group or individual that offends their personal or collective prejudices. Loitering in public places. Drug laws. etc.

I have no problem with speed laws (even though I sometimes break them), as long as they are not used as a means of targeted harassment.

(But my actual point was that tampering with someone's email is a criminal act, whoever does it. If you think such a law should not exist because it can't be enforced, I disagree.)
