You call it "corn"; I call it aMazing hypocrisy

There is a nice senate election map that takes TS feeds to stay updated (hat tip to James Hamilton). The map constructors say this with a seeming straight face:
We do not condone trading on political events. Trading with real money on these markets, even on overseas sites, is illegal from the United States and several other countries.
So they bite the hand that feeds them? I was already short academia, and now I realize there is something to this Buy GOOG Sell YHOO trade.

UPDATE: Jeff Matthews worries about YHOO, too.
