+ - TV Station posts public employee salaries online

Submitted by ncstockguy
ncstockguy writes: The CBS affiliate in Raleigh, NC has generated some controversy by posting names and salaries of local public employees online. After complaints from a large number of public school teachers, and a news story on a competing station, WRAL removed the names of the employees and now just has positions and pay posted online. No question public employee pay is public record, but the question remains, just how easy should it be for casual snoops to look up an individual's pay? http://www.wral.com/news/public_records/?show_all= 1 http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?section=triangle &id=5267279

+ - Myspace goes homophobic

Also it is now impossible to post a bulletin with a content similar to the one posted in protest (can be found here) — the bulletins just don't appear (though bulletins with other content work fine).
Is Rupert Murdoch going into unstoppable censorship spree? Or does he only assume that all gays will hide from him in a closet?

The absent ones are always at fault.
