An anonymous reader writes: Although it's been linked elsewhere on Slashdot, it's worth taking a look at Tableau Software's page on its decision to remove an analysis of Wikileaks directly because of the request of Joe Lieberman that companies have no truck with Wikileaks. The negative response from its users is overwhelming. Tableau has apparently even deleted a prior blog entry which had praised the very same Wikileaks analysis it's now taken down. This would clearly seem to be one of those unanticipated "snowball" responses which will bring massive bad publicity in ensuing days. But so far, company representatives are adamant that they have committed no offense against free speech.
