    Sheppard actually published private information of anti-racist politicians on his website. Why would he do this? To give potential crazies and hate mongers the ability to attack those who disagreed with their warped world view. I hope he has black cell mates.

    Was this private information confidential, or was it a matter of public record?

    Good enough. But these guys were doing far more than simply expressing their opinions. They actually gave addresses and phone numbers of anyone they hated, which constitutes harassment, if not endangerment by these crazy assholes.

    Addresses and tellephone numbers aren't confidential information, exactly.

    Sheppard was one of the founders of Redwatch, a far-right site that publishes photographs, names, addresses and telephone numbers of anti-racist campaigners from across the political spectrum. In 2005, Sheppard's house was raided by police after the personal details of prominent anti-racist activists were listed on Redwatch's website, notably Billy Bragg and left wing comedian Mark Thomas.[1]
    This is an exerpt, an when I cross referenced the names on Sheppard's lists, they were private numbers and addresses. I suppose it works like in the U.S., where you can have your number unlisted. Regardless, his intent was clear, to incite harassment and violence against the opposition.

    I don't think that sorta thing is illegal in the States. Telephone numbers and addresses aren't secrued confidential information. If that was so, there wouldn't so many telemarketers.

    ACORN published the home addresses of AIG execs who recieved bonus money a few months ago. None of them went to jail. I know Liberals live by a double standard, but I've never heard anyone mention that what ACORN did was illegal. Perhaps someone could shed some more light on the issue?

The UK isnt radicalizing and turning into a dictatorship; oh no, the total opposite is happening. The UK is politically "correctisizing" to the POINT where we have been blinded from our own freedom of speech, and then before we know it the only thing that will define democracy in our economy is our capitalist market.
    It's to bad that the rest of the Muslim World doesn't take your view, till the Muslim World gets over the little fact about folks will take pop shots and make political cartoons of Mohamad and their si nothing wrong with that, they can't live by a double stander.

    Well, aesthetically, I am a fan of graffiti artists. But I understand the limitations of universal tolerance...it's not for everyone. I had to go and look up what you mean by Singapore's right idea and I could never support caning as a rational response to criminal acts of vandalism.

    I dont have a great understanding of the muslim world, i tend to keep my political views focused on Europe where i am from, and North America because the two are interwined at the best of times. But i was really dissapointed when the pro Islamic AKP party condemned Rasmussen and almost vetoed his arse (thanks to Obama soothing concerns, it never happened), and the secularist republican party sat back and said nothing, as with the rest of the country.

    Nonetheless, its all good and well when muslim nations in the east make propaganda against the christians.
