[liberationtech] Allout.org requires email address in "anonymous" LGBT survey

As a social engineer, one wonders about the agenda of an organization that
calls itself "all out" doing this kind of BS so...coyly.

What an unfortunate mistake on their part!  Imagine if someone had set such
a thing up as a honeypot.  Indeed.  Some people believe we should be all
out...it would be better for all of us as queerfolk...

I can see where such a mistake might make people uneasy.
