Fascinating article.

A group speculates about some people. Their method might be as
rudimentary as locating a blond person in a part of the city where all
people have black hair. The method won't be disclosed.

The group publishes the data. One might argue that is a good thing based
on motives, a nice Kantian approach. Yet, by doing this, one
deliberately ignores it is an act of bullying, no different that putting
nude pictures of the ex-girlfriend "because she's a slut".

Given the situation is quite volatile in the region, with more than one
civil war going nearby, knowing the rule of law is quite weak and that
weapons are easily available, the ONLY reasonable action is for those
people to leave as fast as possible and probably as far as possible.

Which, in turn, proves not only that the first group is right in naming
the spies, but also that bullying is the way to do things.

This way a rather silly and quite unpleasant gesture becomes one more
step on the way back into the Middle Ages.

Sad. But this is the way humans are.
