It would be illegal to tell the users of your web service that you have been subpoena’d by the NSA and forced to give access to private customer data.

However, would it be illegal to create a blog post every single day saying that the service has never received a subpoena, then stop creating new posts once it has happened?

    yes. they say “any disclosure” – so they’ll rape you regardless.
    NSA letters were found to be unconstitutional by US courts – doesn’t matter -> they still gonna fuck you.
    The only real alternative – go for large overseas company in a country that’s not a US puppet (right now it’s really only BRIC countries).
    My favorite is yandex.com (mail.yandex.com) which is Russian company with datacenters in Moscow.
