No Parking

In this morning's print edition of The New York Times , "Heated Debate over a Web Site about Parking and Permits" details the activities of Uncivil Servants, where fed-up citizens can post pictures of city workers seeming to take undue advantage of special permits by assuming privileges even in traditionally forbidden parking real estate like bus stops and fire hydrants. City police officers have complained that it is a violation of their privacy, since license plates and addresses are often displayed. Of course, the site says that it can't be responsible for monitoring all the traffic and that it lacks the photo cropping and retouching resources that would be required to purge all identifying data.
