How to leak a secret and not get caught

Leaking a sensitive document can mean risking your career, or worse - but not for much longer if an online service called WikiLeaks goes ahead. WikiLeaks is designed to allow anyone to post documents on the web without fear of being traced.

The creators of the site are thought to include political activists and open-source software engineers, though they are keeping their identities secret. Their goal is to ensure that whistle-blowers and journalists are not thrown into jail for emailing sensitive documents.

Hmmm. The power of abuse seems huge, here. You have already noted the odious matter of the Trainwrecks site. Who will police Wikileaks to stop poisonous, libellous or nasty rubbish being posted instead of real "need to know" stuff? Like it or not, censorship of some kind is needed, I feel, if only to protect Joe Ordinary. But then, who makes sure that the censors are censored from over-censoring? Tough one.

That's why whistleblowers who aren't scared of using their real names to back what they believe are to be admired and should be supported, not crucified. The need for anonymous sites would then be eliminated.

Dream on, eh?
