a good example

I once wrote about the problems with data collection and databases.
Today there is the best example  how to get in such a criminal database being fully innocent.

The short version:

Someone made a report about a wrong offer on a auction site and already had an IP of the suspect.
The policeman didn’t know know what to do with that address and called the information desk, which didn’t know much more and searched for the given number with google.
The “I’m feeling lucky”-button  led to a discussion site of wikipedia netherlands as the IP was listened there in the comments.

Now try to get out  of this database. I guess you won’t feel lucky.
