Guess no organization can be completely safe vs. a few bad actors exploiting 
their positions of trust in it.  But with so many people acting as voluntary 
editors, it's hard to see how the WF can protect itself from exposure when 
stuff like this happens.  I mean, some of the victims are sure to sue the WF, 
since where there's money and a criminal offense, there's usually lawsuits.  
But worse than that is the black eye it gives the WF.
 
No winners in this mess.  Sad day all around.
