Re: I can only assume that the stalkage etc moved into legal/crime territory

While I do agree with your comment, I can see justification for "not playing by the rules" occasionally. Whistleblowing comes to mind.

<blockquote>...legally permissible...</blockquote>

Let's remember that laws and regulations change (hopefully to get in line with community expectations). Some things are legal now while they shouldn't be (polluting, lobbying, revolving door concept, etc etc). This has less to do with a person's sense of moral superiority, and more with the fact that the legislative process is being (legally) corrupted by money & power.
