in reply to Reminder: Avoid posting 'sensitive' data

Britain's Data Protection Act, whose latest features went into force Oct 24th 2001, hands out heavy-duty penalties for anyone responsible for private information who allows it, by ommission or design, into the public domain. It also places the onus on keepers of data to maintain updated and accurate data. This applies to paper records as well.
