It feels like a boy scout camp rather than government then. The same for a bunch of emails that ‘interfered’ with true democratic elections. If your organization is so fragile that revealing a tip of your pants makes everyone wonder if they are clean, then maybe that is what needs to be fixed, not someone who posts pictures of it to the internets (in this case provides a REST API for you to do that). However evil my country’s govt will ever be, the level of this nonsense is pushing the heliopause.
