RE: The pursuit of plausible deniability
I didn't know that Dave from Queens site was still around. I really think it is an example of a very dangerous sub group of web posters. They pursue a kind of vapid spy vs. spy approach that does nothing about the important issues of the day. It just provides a kind of low level "Real Housewives" type of entertainment. It's dangerous enough that it distracts well intentioned politically minded people away from the real issues and real responses (such as Occupy), but then they carry it 12 kajillion steps further by taking it into the offline world with people posting photos and identifying personal information about people and then chasing them around in cars and going to their houses. That is incredibly dangerous and real people get hurt.
Survey results coming soon!
