If you use it the way Scott Levine of Boca Raton, Florida did. As reported in ZDNet, Mr. Levine "was found guilty of breaking into Acxiom's servers and downloading gigabytes of data in what the US Justice Department calls one of the largest data heists to date. Acxiom, based in Little Rock, says it operates the world's largest repository of consumer data, and counts major banks, credit card companies and the US government among its customers."
It's always interesting to me when the term data warehousing gets into real news. Most of the time, it's negative news like this, but at least it's getting the credit for storing the data (although without proper security in this case).
