Note to MDE: Give it a rest already!

Scroll down a bit to see where MDE's latest "MPR Cracking Update #(insert number to increase site traffic via RSS feeds)" fits into the Republican strategy - somewhere around Step One.

As a comment on MDE's post correctly asserts, non-compliance with a user agreement is not a crime, nor is accessing publicly available data on a public website. This problem does not belong to Bob Collins, nor does it belong to MPR - this is a problem for the Republican Party of Minnesota, and no one else.

Lest we forget what's actually ON the CD - leave it to our Republican colleagues to let us conveniently forget that the CD incorporates a push poll on the subject of gay marriage, intended to move voter sentiment in the guise of "collecting voter information."

So I figure if MDE can carry water for the Republican Party when their pants are down, I shouldn't feel bad about linking to campaigns I'm supporting, right? Matt Filner, campaign manager for Steve Kelley, has a post up at the campaign blog about the importance of the DFL endorsement, and by extension, the upcoming caucuses. Have a read, sign up, comment, get involved :-)

It wasn't public data.

The data themselves were not public - but the file which contained them was not protected. In terms of technology and information privacy law, this makes the data public.

I hope you don't ever leave the keys in your car. Since it's not secure, anybody can drive it.

Except for some hyperbolic roles I'm sure you'd love to fill, that's almost a good analogy for the technological and privacy issues involved here.
