Some Thoughts on Fandom, Privacy, Money, and Other Stuff|
I've only half aware of the fan drama you're talking about and I don't really care about the details. My point is that information is never really secure online. You have to be prepared for the risk that you might run into someone online who's going to do whatever they want with your information if they get a hold it.
I don't see how my stating the reality of the situation can be seen as in any absolving anyone of anything.

I think the important thing to remember is - as I said in the original post - that these are two separate issues:
- The risk that unscrupulous people will misuse information you make available
- The ethics of misusing information
I was only talking about the first issue. The ethics of the second one pretty much need no comment.

That's an interesting viewpoint. I think that what you said was so obvious as to need no comment and that the ethical questions are most of what's being discussed - not only here, but all over lj.
