Where Joe Anthony Went Wrong With His Barack Obama MySpace Page

In trying to understand the MySpace fiasco, I see on their terms page:

Your MySpace.com profile may not include the following items: telephone numbers, street addresses, last names, and any photographs containing nudity, or obscene, lewd, excessively violent, harassing, sexually explicit or otherwise objectionable subject matter.

...using the account, username, or password of another Member at any time or disclosing your password to any third party or permitting any third party to access your account;

...selling or otherwise transferring your profile;

Was Joe Anthony including a last name? It looks that way. Was he trying to see the profile, or merely his services of keeping it up? I don't know. Did he disclose his password to a third party? Absolutely.

Do I think he was used by the Barack Obama campaign? Absolutely.
