Yeah, morality aside, I would expect Google to have serious enough fears of bad publicity from privacy advocates, not to mention
legal liability, that pigs would fly before Google would do that.
So I figured we were probably talking about a subpoena situation.
While I doubt Google maintains enough information to comply with such a subpoena, I'm not at all surprised that lots of LWN readers think it secretly does. People suspicious of big organizations seem to be very well represented here.
