> Those projects chose to eschew privacy. Groklaw did not. Do you really not see how those two situations are different?
In fact, I don't see why Groklaw needs privacy. I don't see what part of Groklaw could not be done on a public mailing list or wiki. Is it that people can stalk the discussions and associate nicknames to faces who will be attending a trial to take notes for Groklaw? Fine, that's something that Groklaw volunteers will have to take into account. They probably already have to anyway. There may be certain issues that may need privacy, but pj can handle those via telephone calls.
FWIW, I do see why Wikileaks needs privacy, just not Groklaw.
I also can see why pj wants privacy for herself, but that's a different thing.
