There is a difference between public data and publicizing data. For instance, your phone number might be publicly available via the Yellow PagesTM, the interweb, or a county record. There is a huge difference between the availability of such information and the promotion of that information. Having had some of my financial information recently posted by another blogger – I am well aware of what living in a free society entails. I don’t, however, have to like it when people overstep the bounds of common decency or good sense and neither do my co-workers.
