    The privacy of the voters we contacted.

    When I saw diaries and comments that have identifying info, it felt very wrong. One person actually mentioned the name of a man she spoke to who, granted, was very rude. I was shocked, but I thought that HRing it to hide it would draw more attention to it than just leaving it alone.

    None of the voters we contacted consented to be blogged about. And I did say that in a diary that I felt gave away too much personal information about a voter.

    Anyhow, that's what I think. Most of what we volunteers did wasn't so unique or revolutionary to need to be "secret" for strategic purposes otherwise.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
