As someone who generally favors privacy protections, part of me is cheering on Airbnb’s efforts to protect its users’ information.

But as someone who lives in a cooperative where hosting via airbnb is a clear violation of the rules that everyone agree to when they buy an apartment here, and where a few unscrupulous neighbors refuse to take down their airbnb listings and have turned parts of our home into a part-time hotel and party rental space, another part of me really wants the AG to kick some butt.

In other words, NIMBY!

I will be even happier to use Airbnb from now on than I have been before.

The AG is going about it all wrong. Call the NSA and intimate that perhaps a terrorist has used Airbnb. A few days later a secret request arrives and Hey Presto there’s your data.
