You have something to hide

Everyone has something to hide. What the “nothing to hide” apologists think is that they’ll come up clean in those particular searches, refusing to grasp the wider implications.

An op-ed from Wired that is particularly relevant.

The complexity of modern federal criminal law, codified in several thousand sections of the United States Code and the virtually infinite variety of factual circumstances that might trigger an investigation into a possible violation of the law, make it difficult for anyone to know, in advance, just when a particular set of statements might later appear (to a prosecutor) to be relevant to some such investigation.
