    It’s hardly a Google specific problem, the only reason Gawker pursued it is because Google has a very high profile and they wanted the page views.

    It’s very likely that Gawker didn’t get all the facts and detail quite right, they have embellished stories before, so I choose to give those involved the benefit of the doubt.

    The fact is that in these types of infrastructures a handful of people will have high access privileges, and the chance of the fringe asshole manning one of these positions will exist, so it boils down to trust and if you don’t trust them, go elsewhere.
