@robcorr Ah yes, I should have read @JustinianNews’ comments more carefully before I spoke. I am an arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to robcorr

@robcorr WikiLeaks prone to exaggeration? No, that can’t be right.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to robcorr

@robcorr I see. There could hypothetically be limits, such as “information derived from or prepared for the purposes of” some thing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to robcorr

@robcorr So, hypothetically, “publication or otherwise, of any information … that reveals, implies, suggests or alleges” would seem broad.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to robcorr

@robcorr I have no idea what you’re talking about. I am just curious about a hypothetical situation. Obviously.

@robcorr If I said, hypothetically, “That global leaking place has some interesting information.” This is presumably uncharted territory.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to robcorr

@robcorr Indeed, but I’m thinking the other way around. A verbal description which is sufficient to allow material to be found.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to robcorr

@TheFailedProjek It usually does, though. The trick is turning the ideas into an actual script. Or at least a script outline and treatment.
