And what exactly would you do with those Apple IDs? Just knowing the email address doesn't really get you very far.

You could spam them.

Anyways, it's a privacy violation. Apple shouldn't be handing out your email without your permission. Facebook has a setting allowing you to choose whether you want your email to be public or not.

Sure, you could spam them, but that's not a special property of Apple IDs. Apple certainly shouldn't be leaking emails, but describing this as "leaking Apple IDs" instead of "leaking emails" makes it sound like it's more serious than it is.
