Government can decode erased files anyway

Download.com says "We're glad to see the program lets you choose from four secure government-sanctioned deletion algorithms". Obviously you use this program to get rid of illegal files, if the government can get the files, what's the point?

Is 'edit > preferences > erasing' where you can make your own algorithms?

Eraser is a tool of privacy, it erases sensitive files. Files that would cause you or your company Loss (If a company secret was leaked to a competitor) or personal embarrassment. Yes, files that maybe illegal too

There is no evidence to suggest that any LEA can recover files that have been wiped xxx times so they can view the original file, even if they can, so what? If your using it for purposes that are illegitimate then shame on you.
