    ...Blogger retaliates by creating a map pinpointing the addresses of the newspapers employees .

    Thank God for the internet & people with a little gumption .... Was this appropriate behavior, or did he overstep the bounds of decency?? (Two wrongs don't make a right, etc)




    BLOGGER RETALIATES AGAINST PAPER THAT PUBLISHED GUN OWNER ADDRESSES
    BY CREATING INTERACTIVE MAP OF ITS EMPLOYEES

    In retaliation against the New York newspaper — the Journal News — that published the addresses of those pistol permit holders in two of the state’s counties, a blogger has created a map pinpointing the addresses of the newspaper’s employees.

    Mimicking the title of the Journal News’ original article, Robert Cox with “Talk of the Sound” headlined his post: Map: Where are the Journal News employees in your neighborhood?

    He wrote:
    The map indicates the addresses of all Journal News Employees in the New York Tri-State area. Each dot represents an individual Journal News employee — a reporter, editor or staffer. The data does not include freelancers — reporters or photographers — which can be hired without being an employee. Being included in this map does not mean the individual at a specific location is a responsible reporter or editor, just that they are a reporter or editor.

    To create the map, Talk of the Sound submitted Google searches for the names and addresses of all Journal News employees in the New York Tri-State area. By state law, the information is public record.

    good! i support the blogger. decency is not an issue: Robert Cox believes legal gun owners should be ostracized in their communities and he gamed the laws and misused his employer's resources to do that. The Blogger decided that someone who games the laws and uses his employer's facilities for his own purposes should ostracized by his co-workers.

    This is how the system is supposed to work: laws define the minimum acceptable behaviors. laws generally are not supposed to grant you blanket immunity just for complying with the minimum appropriate behaviors. Citizens are supposed to take responsibility for their actions: what you do may be legal but may also put yourself at risk.

    Apparently Robert Cox is a self-righteous asshole who just found out that society exists for a reason, and that when he usurps a societal function (ie. invading the privacy of law abiding citizens), society is likely to shit in his face.

    If they were owners of real estate it'd show them as vested owners ... I'm not sure how a renters address would/could be shown as a public record

    4th estate is more important than the 2nd amendment.
