Top posting: yes, *sensitive* spots, not spots of possible connection with *national security*. The police take an active interest wherever money can be sniffed, not only where the government may or may not have an interest. In the former kind of places, one can very often discern an extra-legal aura of security, such as the disgraceful scene some months back when a motorist traveling south (Mumbaikars will know what I mean) on Peddar Road was harassed for taking a picture or two of Antillia from across the road. Picture taking there is totally and completely a legal act, of course, but harassment by police is not always worth going to court about. In that case, the media took an interest, which can be better than going to court sometimes. The trouble is that Wikipedians cannot always expect to be able to raise a media fuss, or to expect sympathy or empathy expressed in the media. But I must say that the media is taking a lot more of a positive and encouraging view of Wikimedian activities nowadays (a kudos to you-know-who).
