Cnet's Download.com didn't start off that way. "Back in the day" it could be a great "go-to" for software downloads. But they have or are cutting their own throats, it's hard to imagine anyone downloading anything from these clowns today. Let alone actually read any of the "articles" they publish, I mean seriously, who reads that shit?

There is a difference between your work phone / email / address and your home phone / email / address. These script kiddies released work phone / email / address, which *IS* public information. The document you quote is talking about personal phone / email / address, and indeed also says "may", not "is".
