So, I'm looking at my options for trying to get family and friends using
some kind of email encryption among each other… Not that we have anything
to hide, but on basic principle that more encrypted traffic makes it harder
to pick out the whistleblower or dissident emails traversing the web.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the relative safety of S/Mime vs GPG for
email, especially in the light of recent news about NSA activity and their
"infiltration" of standards groups?
