I would advise Mr. Hall that this campaign affects more than just Diebold. There is a vast amount of personal information of employees, completely unrelated to the issue at hand, contained in the tarball. Civil disobedience does not necessitate the abandonment of morals. The publication of private phone numbers and other personal information is not justified by the goals that these people are trying to reach.
I, for one, would be willing to support this cause by erecting a mirror, however I will not do so while the movement neglects consideration of the scope of their influence. Publishing the personal information of employees will gain them no ground in their fight, and may place them in a bad light in the perspective of people like myself.
Peace. Erick _______________________________________________ Politech mailing list Archived at http://www.politechbot.com/ Moderated by Declan McCullagh (http://www.mccullagh.org/)
