This punk/hypocrite Assange wanted to keep his bail address secret. Judge says "no".
Assange is not anti-privacy, he's against governments keeping secrets from their people. Either way, it was closing the barn door after the horse already escaped, as the location he will be staying at was publicized yesterday.

Then why was he asking the government, in this case the British courts, to keep his address secret from the people?

And by the way, I too have a problem with government secrecy, but no one appointed me Grand Arbiter of what should be made public.

You really can't see the difference between government keeping its own actions secret and keeping individual personal information secret?

Think medical records vs. court proceedings. It's perfectly reasonable for the state to refuse to release an individual's medical records or other PII. It's not reasonable for them to keep an entire trial secret. Just as an example..

They have a fiction category.  Cool

Since the previous round of leaks last summer, has there been a documented case where Americans were harmed as a result (other than facing criminal charges)?

Assange and Moore. . .I like "pipers" of this caliber.

They offer causes instead of goals and help us to identify those among us who would rather be followers.  They bring some people back to reality while others are willing to march right off the edge.

I think that requires some semblance of a soul.  IOW- don't hold your breath.

Maybe he could call Beck and Boehner for tips?

This might well qualify for the stupidest thing I've seen on the internet this year sofar.

I'm no fan of Julian Assange/Wikileaks, but this guy sounds like he might be certifiable.
