I would be happy to do that, 
but I did not because I am not sure what the relevant law is.  

According to    http://www.out-law.com/page-4759 
for example, 'all commercial web sites that collect "personally identifiable
information" from users in California must now have a conspicuous
privacy policy on their web sites'.
So far as I know, no one who submitted a comment to 
f2008-ballot-comments-ext at sun.com had access to a privacy policy that
would spell out that their name would be exposed on the web site; in fact,
the official reply to their comments didn't even mention the web site.

Dan or Van, can we get a brief note from INCITS in writing that would let us
proceed with more confidence?  Failing that, I can write to the 
comment submitters (there are six different individuals) to advise them
that our website will expose their names.

P.S.  If it proves necessary to maintain anonymity of commenters then
would the librarian please remove papers 08-209.txt, 08-210.txt, and
08-211.txt from the website.  (The r1 versions can remain.)
