The Mail and Privacy

With some relish, The Daily Mail comments on some of the complaints about Google's new Street View service. They say that some people have complained about the pictures on the service, meaning those images have been blacked out or removed. They note:
Images of several homes were removed along with a one picture showing a man emerging from a sex shop in Soho, central London.
Perhaps the gentleman being pictured leaving a sex shop wanted his privacy to be respect. So how do The Daily Mail respect that privacy? Only by printing the fucking picture on their website.

The publication of the picture is either grossly unsympathetic, or grossly hypocritical. But this being The Daily Mail it could, of course, be a mix of the two.
