Some Thoughts on Fandom, Privacy, Money, and Other Stuff|
All of this is coming from the fact that the kerfuffle started with a post about how to protect one's identity -- with the implication that anyone not taking those steps was fair game. The OP then proceeded to out someone in an ETA on that post. The issue is that in repeating the initial argument, you appear to be reiterating the idea the offender used as a potential defense.
I can see that you're not, but I thought you might like to know what's prompting the extreme reactions.
I know what's going on. I just resent people putting words in my mouth.
We all surf the net at our own risk. If someone get underhanded on you then you have a right to call foul. But not the right to act like you didn't know the risks in the first place.
That's all I have to say on the matter.
Your reply read as pretty hostile. I'm sorry if my attempt to explain reactions you seemed not to expect appeared in any way problematic.

I think that was a very gracious response to what seems a trolling comment.
