I agree with you that posting someone's information without their permission is immoral especially since it can so easily be worked around when posting your code, but how did you know the author of the question was using real data?

The best offense is a good offense.

    The names and addresses that were used look more like real names than names like "John Smith", "Joe Sixpack", or "John Q Public". When you've seen enough code and both real and 'munged' data, you can easily tell the difference.
