Hey Leah:
I meant exactly what I tweeted: I am disappointed you (or your publishers) chose to publish enough personal information that people can easily find Dorian and his family.
The pieces might all be public information, but you worked really hard to piece them all together, and the crazy people who might decide it is a good idea to go visit "Satoshi" are likely not as smart or hard-working as you.
And all of your evidence is circumstantial, EXCEPT for the "I'm not involved in that any more" quote, which might simply be an old man saying ANYTHING to get you to go away and leave him alone.
Anyway, I hope some good comes of all this; I hope it stimulates more debate on personal privacy and the role of journalists in our "pan-opticon" world.

I'm glad Gavin wrote that - it needed to be said.

I would add that Leah is just the whore though, and that the real POS is the editor that pushed the story.

I'm grumpy!!

Behind every prostitute is a pimp pushing the human trafficking!

Maybe gavin should stick to his paid job - programming. "Interfacing" with reporters doesn't seem to be his strong point, as they tend to run with the ball out of context. I wasn't under the impression he had a lot of free time for press contacts. Why is it a priority now?

I have to assume the issue warranted further action (according to him)... considering it quoted him and it may be misconstrued that he supported the conclusions of the article.

On the other hand Leah provides a lot of FREE media attention for Bitcoin. That credit cards ads cost much more - priceless. As longs as Dorian gets compensated, win-win!
