Slashdot: Keeping Customer From Accessing My Database?

There is a post on slashdot today where someone asks about protecting a database from customers. I felt the poster was missing the point and some opportunities by trying to build fences. I thought this person should embrace the new idea. I felt strongly enough that I wrote an non-anon comment with some suggestions on the human front. I always feel like us cubicle troglodytes spend to much time googling the solution when there is a very simple "org hack" that can solve the problem. I like to try to convey the abstraction of openness and flow rather than enclosure and barriers. My co-workers know how I preach it.
