Probably best to put the data up in their most raw format (except for those you can't legally--in those cases give a pointer to the person involved). This will, as Gavin notes, blunt the line of attack that has the greatest traction.... Michael E. Mann .
...Frankly, I would simply put the whole CRU database (in an as-impenetrable-as-possible form) up on the web site along with a brief history of it's provenance (and the role of the NMSs) and be done with it. [Gavin Schmidt]
