I was looking at Boing Boing this evening when I found this, which links to this article here.
After I read the article, which troubled me greatly, I went back to the discussion on Boing Boing and I found a link to this, which articulated my concerns about the original LA Weekly article a great deal better than I could myself.

Whatever the nuts and bolts of the situation, I don't think it was right for Josh Olson to write that article. If you have a friend and they've done something silly and you've helped them out, you do not then go on to write a newspaper piece about it.

Any thoughts?
