It's actually more relevant than you think.  When a site is having their
policies decided by a legal team that has little or no understanding of
the technology, that *can't* be good for their security stance. If
the legal team doesn't understand the difference between an e-mail recipient
and addressee in the context of a mailing list, and doesn't understand why
stamping it 'this is confidential' (rather than the slightly less obnoxious
'may be confidential') when posting worldwide - what are the chances of them
giving you actually sound advice when you ask them if a given network trace
of a network intruder constitutes an illegal interception of communications,
or similar *difficult* question?
