    Vulture on a leash?

    Very disapointed in el reg.

    I recall the same thing happened in the gary mckinnon case when all the IP's of US military establishments were published... El reg Linked to that. Somehow F1 should be more secure in El Reg's eyes?? it is in the public domain so link to it!
