Actually, given the frictionless web enabling anyone curious to dig deeper, I think this is great. A few folks (regular readers)latched on to the story when first published here. A few more folks learned of it through the attempts (by whomever)to squelch. Now, there is a whole new legion of WP readers who now know of the story, and those more curious will find their way back to the archives and be enlightened. In this case, so far, the publicity is good. Revel in it. Your rants on ethical behavior, or lack thereof, have been read by even more folks than usual.
