Okay, I see your point and I have been corrected in email too. When I 
posted I didn't realize how easy it was to gain access to the site. I 
apologize to Richmond for calling him unethical. Maybe he was just 
thoughtless.

But just to extend the analogy, suppose I arrived at the home and found 
the door lock broken with a sign over it "Please knock". Suppose I went 
in anyway and accidentally saw the homeowner engaged in a private 
activity. I hope I would back out quietly, and resist the impulse to 
grab my videocamera.
