El Reg was able to look through almost 5,000 records
Were you authorised to look at that material?
Otherwise you're in breach of the Computer Misuse Act 1990.
Computer Law has really got some catching up to do with the realities of the internet.

It's more obvious than those spy camera glasses.
It's difficult to tell them apart from a regular pair of glasses.
That list of questions doesn't exactly display a firm understanding of the technology.
Like the police, customs officials, etc
(Stolen from Jack Dee)
They aren't really for IT pro's though.
I've found that slabs are great if you just want to consume information and services. It is not an environment where you could write an application of any great size.
I'd wager that's just the tip of a very big iceberg.
Because it makes the math easier.
Why do we need to pay charities to do the job that we're already paying the police to do out of our taxes?
This is all because of pirates. Open your eyes people!
Is that a eunuch euphemism?
It is now.
Surely you mean containing? Or contained?
Deciding what's acceptable for you to look at since 1996.
(If you don't remember, this was the organisation that effectively cut off access to the Wayback Machine, and blocked access to wikipedia because of a Scorpions album cover.)
It's not my money they are pissing up the wall.
If I could up vote articles, I'd do it just for that reference.
But the UK has to faff about with the likes of BT, who, let's face it; would have a hard time stringing a couple of tin cans together.
They shouldn't be putting him in prison, they should be giving him a job!
How many salesmen have sales figures even close to approaching that?
Well it sure beats hardwiring connections to the valves by hand!
For her pleasure.
Wait a sec! This isn't the Ann Summers thead!
The guy that replaced Rebekah Brooks after the phone hacking scandal is now in charge of one of the UK's largest phone companies.
Something is raising a red flag here, but I just can't quite put my finger on it...
How do I change my vote?
Well that was daft.
What the council should have done was train their employees properly. (If they still can't use encryption tools after that, then the council needs to fire their incompetent staff).
It's just encryption, it's not rocket science.
T**** ***** *** ****** *** ****!
Q, A, O and P surely!
Not much. Apart from your honour as an IT professional.
Pencil, Paper and Slide Rule it is then!
Yes, absolutely awful code.
Written by a person who's native language was English.
Who's idea of a good variable name involves some of the worst hungarianesque notation (in an ide that will frigging tell you what type and what class a method belongs to) that I've ever seen.
I maintain some awful code.
Some might argue that is not enough pron!
Your default password will be the ancient dance of my ancestors.
It goes: Aga do do do, push pineapple, shake the tree.
I find El Reg to be so humancentric. There are other planets with life out there (possibly,) you know!
Has a Playmonaut been named yet?
What's David Cameron going to be wearing?
(You can thank yourself for that disgusting mental picture you're now viewing.)
Because hidden variable theories make predictions that aren't observed in experiments.
Or maybe they did anticipate them, and thought, "We don't really care what a load of batshit crazy bible thumpers think", and then got on with the rest of their day.
We're going to have bleary eyed developers wandering around looking for coffee and snack food. They'll sit about all day at their desks producing quirky random code...
Hang on, are we sure that developers aren't on pot already?
If you rub them they turn into a postcard!
You've got to take care of the evidence.
Or at least make sure that it points in someone else's direction :)
I think you'd better do what he says.
"You now have 15 seconds to comply."
And probably starting up a ranch of buggalo before we've even got boots on the ground!
I remember seeing more tits in Carry On movies from the 60's than anything else I ever saw on TV.
The way to stop kids from accessing porn is to burn down all the hedges.
No more so than the rest of the population that enjoys porn. If you think that a horny 15 year old doesn't have access to the same material, then you've severely underestimated the biological imperative to seek out sex that appears to exist in all young boys.
And not enough time spent by parents keeping an eye on their kids.
Yes, but our nutters are British!
Are you insinuating that they didn't use a control group?
Maybe when the next zombie apocalypse happens, you'll listen to me sooner!
