There is even a line with Paris Hilton. (What to cover and what not to cover)

Just a word of advice to folks out there in the blog publishing world, it’s fine to cover the Paris Hilton story but I would not republish those numbers or data. Forget the legal arguments, it’s someone’s personal information, it’s not newsworthy, and you’re violating the privacy of the couple of hundreds folks who’s numbers are in her address book.

Not saying don’t cover the larger issue of a) it happened, b) could it happen to you, c) should you get a web-hosted phone, etc. Just saying let’s have some decency. Now, does anyone know who that girl she’s kidding is?!!?!? (ok, everyone say the punchline in unison “that’s hot.”).
