I've never received a NSL, just a few really badly written subpoenas. But
then I got out of the large-scale public ISP business a long time ago.

It'd take a heck of a gag order to compel the recipient to outright lie
about the fact that they are under a gag order;  when directly questioned
on the subject -- you must refuse to answer.  That doesn't mean you go
out of your to reveal the fact of the gag order, as in the above posts.
