Sarah Palins emails released by Alaska

El_Oscuro (1022477) writes "According to to the LA Times, the state of Alaska is expected to release more than 24,000 pages worth of emails from Sarah Palin's tenure as governor, more than two years after they were requested by news organizations and local activists. The Palin emails were originally sought to shed light on the then-little-known running mate of 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain. Their release comes at a very different time — as Palin, who enjoys near-universal name recognition, is contemplating a White House bid of her own.

Apparently, the Alaskan government cannot create something like a zip file or tarball so they will print out each individual email and then release the printed copies to new organizations. Why do I feel this belongs on thedailywtf.com?"

...they remember what happened when the TSA tried to redact a .pdf file with black bars, and they don't trust their IT people to tell them what file formats are safe.
