    Then it is a risk you took, and don't complain if it turns sour.

    Anonymity or true information disclosure, choose one.

    Shockingly enough, people have brains and access to Internet. After you spew enough information, they can find out who you are.

    Again, let this be a painful lesson to you.

    I don't understand why the university you went to would be a basic detail. That seems like pretty detailed information, honestly.

    Not really. There are quite a lot of people who went to Cambridge. Further, it's hard to discuss things like that if you're constantly being evasive.

    Anwyay, the point is that I should have the choice about what information I give out. I should not be forced to give out either absolutely nothing or absolutely everything. If I choose to give out information, then fine. If someone uses that to track down my Facebook account, then so be it. But, for them to then post a link to that account elsewhere is just not acceptable, full stop.

    I think you're assuming a bit too much here about Neir's intent. If he had done it to deliberately provoke you, wouldn't he posted it somewhere you might have seen? I doubt Neir expected that Milbunk would tell.

    Neir didn't expect anyone to even care or bother. Actually, I was on there when that happened (AFK, but I took a look at the logs) and nobody gave a fuck until you entered the channel. And once you left everyone returned to not giving a fuck either.

    Just my opinion on his intent, really. Only he himself can tell what he was thinking when he posted it.

    Altima has weighed in. He cited much the same concerns, that people have been fired from jobs and such over employers getting a hold of their Facebook profiles, and that once it was spread to two dozen people, basically Mike's profile became at their mercy, and that Neir did not come to us when he was sent it was really the clincher.

    Therefore, by a 3-1 vote, the admins have decided that Neir should keep his ban as it was. Ergo, the one-week ban will be upheld for both Neir and Flame.

I do have a problem with him PMing it to Neir, but I don't see how that is any worse than what Neir did.

    Further, I don't see how the fact that Neir found the information out via a PM rather than searching for it himself makes it any better. The problem is not that he found my facebook account, it's that he actively spread it around to other people.

    Flame being naturally curious is not something I have an issue with. I am naturally curious, and if someone challenged me to find their facebook account, I'm pretty sure I'd try. The issue is spreading it around to other people without permission.

    Whilst my facebook account is more private now, I would prefer not to have to do that. I like the fact that people I actually know are able to find me on there without too much difficulty, and it doesn't contain enough personal information (aside from my name, profile picture and date of birth, which anyone who would care IRL would already know) to be a serious issue. Unfortunately, I didn't consider the possibility that people on here would hunt me down and then publicise the information.
    I honestly can't think how Flame did that lol >_> I mean he has your location and age along with your major, yeah. But you already said Mike isn't your real name >_>. I suppose the trip to Japan coulda helped but you said it was set to slightly private <_<

    I mean, I could understand if it was adi (at least then you have more information [Imperial College of London lololololol]) being found but I can't think how people have found yours, Kotonoha's (adi found hers iirc), and other peoples (I know quite a few of them were found but none of them were actually posted publicly) >_>

    Well, that's actually without trying/looking. I'm not sure, but if I actually tried I might somehow be able to get more info (actually, yeah, I probably would now that I think of it. As you are on a bunch of sites you must keep your email public on at least one of them. And your email would go a long way lol).

    This is just theory crafting not actual consideration. As the only site I know Mike visits is Animesuki and I heard that like, years ago (I actually did once see him there iirc someone linked to a thread and I saw him).

    But yeah, I don't think they would really harm you (but that could be an opinion of ignorance as I kinda still think of Neir as when he used to be the pseudo Elder and didn't really care about you).

    I think you need to understand the point the mods were trying to make. They (including Mike in his first post) had stated that they didn't think Neir himself would do much with the information but the problem was publicly posting the information that can endanger him.

    Wasn't really arguing that point, though. I just saw that his intent was being argued, and pitched in my own opinion.

    For me, intent isn't really important, it's more on the principle of it.

    The penalty for crashing into someone while driving drunk and doing it intentionally is nearly the same right?

    But Mike, you shouldn't assume that Neir did it maliciously.
    ok dad

    They are posting a link in public domain, which you placed there in the first place.

    It was something you chose to place in public, located with information you freely gave out in public.

    It's like you can say you did not want to kill someone, but manslaughter is manslaughter. You can say you did not want to share, but you shared, you gave out large amounts of identifiable information permanently recorded in this forum, and you placed the information there.

    If Neir compromised your account and found all this out, then he deserves to be damned. However, he found out all this legally, and the materials he shared are perfectly legal public domain information as well.

    You can only blame him from ethics perspective, not legal perspective.

    The thing with ethics is that, you may think it is the worst thing ever, others may only find it frown-worthy.

    Ya, but he is villainfying him, while it was just a retarded joke, ultimately spawned by mike's own failure.

    You get less sympathy when you make minimal effort safeguarding your privacy.

    Also, on a side note, this is time to mend fence and not driving Neir off the cliff.

    With what he has and your posts in this forum, he can destroy your academic career, or at least making the next while miserable.

    The fact that he did not do any of that, means it is a joke without malice. Your furious pursuit on this matter, however, may turn a joke into something more serious and malicious.

    Mend fences and minimize damage, man. Hopefully all this just blows over.

    Edit:

    Also, maybe you should start sterilizing your past posts, just to be safe. Talk to the mods about it. I think it is better to be safe than sorry.

    Are you that dense?

    You don't want to turn "internet dick move" into "messing up your real world job".

    You can ban Neir, but he still has the information. And then you make him from feeling bad, to feeling bitter and vengeful, then what? Huh?

    He loses Internet account, Mike suffers in real world academia.

    Sure sure.

    That is equivalent to saying absolutely nothing. You can type all that righteous stuff, but it changes nothing.

    You are on the Internet, not Sunday Bible School.

    Embrace the good on the Internet, but always keep the potential worst in mind.
    Also, always respect the Internet, and never taunt it, for you are nothing against the collective.


    That is what I live by on the Internet, not your laughable rules.

    Your rhetoric is worth jack and shit.

    See this? It's an internet truism. It's why 4chan exists. Fuck, there're known cases of the internet ruining people's lives. It's why you must protect yourself. This is why you don't go out of your way to antagonize the same people that hold your location, name, age and university.
