Email disclaimers

Wired magazine says that email disclaimers are meaningless:
“You have no obligation to obey the disclaimer if you decide to read a misdirected email, send it to your friends, or send it to a Wired reporter,” says Susan Lyon, a privacy and data security attorney for Perkins Coie. “You don’t have to worry about that.”
It is especially amusing to see lawyers use these silly disclaimers. It is like getting an email from a weatherman saying that a rain dance might cause a rain. It just makes me suspect that they have some misunderstandings about the law. Here is my favorite disclaimer.
