On the scale of consensus moral judgment, I'm sure they're even lower than Ashley Madison cheaters.
And I realize that dissemination on the interwebz = truthiness, but people don't even seem to be given pause by the fact that one name on their pre-list is that Tennessee may seems pretty clear about as un-KKK as you can get.
And more broadly, yay hackerz, right? Because whether we value privacy, observance of the law, and whatnot depends on whether it's the privacy of people we like or people who suck that's being compromised, and whether the information being revealed about them is stuff we're interested in learning. Yes?
LD, you're a smart guy, so you know the answers, but here's a short list of easy to follow rules.
1. We value privacy when it is our privacy or someone we care about.
1a. When it some d-bag or klansmen or someone with opinions we don't like, transparency is more important.
2. Hackers are bad when they're stealing our cc #s or exposing people in #1
2a. Hackers are good when they're exposing those in 1a.
3. Stop letting facts get in the way of the narrative. We all know that all Republicans are either klansmen or wish they were.
