Do you choose companies based on how they respond to government demands for data?

I actually do consider it, both personally and professionally. I don't buy that "if you don't have anything to hide" argument, if you can even call it an argument. "Absurd position" would be my preferred description. Just because I have nothing to hide doesn't mean I want strangers rummaging through my undie drawer. I use Dropbox, for example, in part because they have a good record of transparency about government demands. I am curious, do most other people even think about it?
