Our individual information has a long tail
This decision can only be implemented selectively, not uniformly and fairly, because of the way the court has decided the case. It means some information on indivuals will be suppressed, some not, depending on circumstances that will bear little relation to a fair process. We have to get used to the fact that information on individuals is going to have a long tail. The court is trying to take resonsibility for evaluating the worth of the information out of the hands of the reader and putting it in the hands of a legal process. I don't trust the evenhandedness of the outcome.
