Intended Audiences and Unintended Audiences

I found this article, entitled ‘War of the rabbis’ over Temple Mount strife goes from Halacha to politics", on The Journal of Turkish Weekly and found it somewhat disconcerting that this issue was presented on this site. The actual article itself was not the issue for me and in discovering that it was originally from The Jerusalem Post, I was not surprised. The question for me, though, was how this article would be perceived, read and understood by the readers of this Turkish site. How much, when we write, do we have to be concerned by where it will eventually be read? This is really an example of the 'power' of the Internet.
