Well...we want to get a lot of attention, but not necessarily press just
yet. We were hoping that the first step will happen fairly quickly: proving
vandalism of the data files instead of redaction. If that can be confirmed,

1) Mainstream newspapers will be REAL interested, as they are with any
public records related problem.

2) It really hurts Sequoia on multiple levels: makes it much harder to
challenge what's going on in court for example, under the "unclean hands"
doctrine. It will also make it much harder for them to screw with
additional public records requests.

So we wanted to wait to hit the newspapers and such until we can prove the
vandalism issue.

Go ahead and get it on Daily Kos though, in the interest of attracting geeks
