Should AskMe be used to help locate Edward Snowden? June 10, 2013 9:34 AM Subscribe
This AskMe Question seems to be an attempt to find Edward Snowden's hotel in Honk Kong. He's since checked-out, so the issue isn't pressing, but I think we should discuss whether that's a use of Ask Metafilter with which we are comfortable. I personally sympathize with Mr. Snowden and think we should avoid providing crowd-sourced help to the CIA and others who may be seeking him. I recognize Mr. Snowden hasn't made much of an attempt to hide his location and the CIA doesn't really need our help.
