The story so far.  Coming on the massacre in Connecticut, a suburban NY
newspaper published (online) a database of gun owners in their area - all
arguably, public information - inclusive of geo-tags.

People were understandingly outraged. So a coalition of privacy rights
advocate allied with the right to bear arms types jump up and down.  The
paper backed off and took away the database.  Except it cannot do crapola
about the mirrors of their site which includes the database.

Here's the kick in the teeth: the fellas owing the mirrors, including the
geek next door, have the unfettered right to tell you 'go fly a kite'.
