Imho It's NOT his (Best's) material to decide to post without permission
of the creator. Publicly available or not, at Archive.org.

You don't take the permission to upload the same information JY allowed to be uploaded to public torrents as implied permission to post the *same* files on archive.org?

Also, before Best posted anything at all, he contacted John. Twice. JY could have expressed his disapproval at that time. We know about it because Best posted it to the list: how many other mirrors are there? Will you find them, check them all for the log files in question and chastise those posters as well?

Cryptome has never endorsed the authenticity of any specific mirrors, but has never discouraged the mirroring of the archives (at least not to my knowledge, and I've been around for a while.)

As I've stated, I'm fairly certain my info is in the dataset and it's on me for not employing better personal browsing security. I'm not angry with any of the parties involved; sunlight is the best disinfectant, and this discussion can become a positive thing if serves to remind us that despite best intentions, someone, somewhere, is always watching and it is up to us to protect ourselves.
