Acknowledging the troll manipluation

I feel this article could mention more about the complex ethical conflicts involved in gathering information. For example, the reality of the sentence:
"The Cwcki's wealth of information over the years has been gained from Chris's inability to keep information to himself, his incredible honesty has made sure we know everything we need to know without having to befriend him."
is more complicated than that. Most of the CWCki's material is comprised of information such as chats/emails that Chris told to people thinking it would be kept between them, or videos that trolls manipulated him into making by misrepresenting themselves to him. By using that information, the CWCki is in a position where its editors might not directly engage with Chris, but still utilizes the information gained from those that do.
