More hypocrisy exposed

Oh look, security researcher Ron Bowes enumerated a list of all public Facebook users from data on a public Facebook webserver:

This action is indistinguishable from the actions of the iPad scraper. This is another case of public data aggregated perfectly legally from a public web server. The difference? Goatse Security only released this data to a single journalist, solely for the purpose of informing the public. Ron Bowes made a public BitTorrent of the data, publishing it for the entire world to abuse. Goatse acted with a higher standard of ethics than Mr. Bowes. Yet we’re pretty sure he won’t be getting his door kicked in by the feds.

AT&T’s claim that we acted maliciously is false and the warrants obtained against us through misstatements of fact are unlawful.
