So how did all those FDA surveillance documents get into the open?

Check out Doctor Science's ideas--if the googlebot got access through Gmail or Chrome, that would say some very interesting things about privacy.  (Also, of course government officials are going to use Gmail accounts if that's convenient for them.  Security would be so easy without the people!)  Revised slogan: two can keep a secret if neither of them uses Gmail.

  1. While the theories are interesting, it most likely is #4:

    "An authorized user was *really, really* dumb, and posted a link somewhere public to a document buried in those 80,000 pages. Probably to make a point in a blog comments section."

    That happens all the damned TIME. And Googlebot is on top of those types of links like white on rice.
