Privacy is certainly one reason. Others are the greater capacity of
envelopes, ability to send more than one piece of paper at a time,
ability to carry things other than paper .... I could go on. My point
being that it's just as important to observe the lenses through which we
do our observations as it is to make the observations themselves.
