Well, I could think of a couple people who might be subject to
persecutions (depending on how serious Polish prosecution authorities
are...) :

- The editor who added the personal data
- Administrators who were made aware of this on-wiki but declined to
react by removing the data
- Polish volunteers of the info-pl-OTRS queue who were made aware of
this via email and rejected to intervene

Shall we exclude them all?  (Note, this is all speculation, but it's a
discussion worth having imho)
