The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
We had a near similar incident where I used to work (retired). A local journalist had threatened to publish names, addresses, and salaries of everyone at our work place. My response was to call him and note that, the day after such info was published, ALL of his info, personal and other, would be published relentlessly all over the Internet.
The article was never published.
I wonder if the North Coast Journal would post the names of all married gay couples in CA on their cover since the marriage licenses would be public record?
"Why did we ask for this list? Call it curiosity sparked by the Supreme Court of California's recent overturning the state's ban on same-sex marriage.
Or call it pure nosiness -- an "invasion of privacy," one newlywed told us, in a calm, patient voice.
We call it exercising our rights under the First Amendment as well as the California Public Records Act."
all but a cursory glance at the AAN website would have helped you figure out who writes all of the material.
Excellent post. We're not taking it quietly, indeed.

I like the gay married couple data publication idea. They should publish the names of the Jews, too, especially the ones hiding in the attic.
The Cleveland Plain Dealwer does this on at least an annual basis, sometimes quarterly.
