Is this allowed? This looks like it could be considered as a "doxing" of a DVD Talk member.

I'm thinking the intention in this case was more like a political public shaming on a DVD Talk forum.

Yeah, I get that and do the same thing. But as far as Facebook, if you have your privacy settings locked down, random people wouldn't be able to read your timeline as far as I'm aware (geez, I hope not!).

I'll be the first to admit that what happened may have been a tad stalkerish, but no expectation of privacy was breached as far as I'm concerned, regardless of intent.

So are you raising the complaint because, regardless of political affiliation, you think some sort of expectation of privacy was breached? Or are you raising the complaint because someone that you align with politically was the subject of "political public shaming"? I'm asking genuinely because maybe you should ask if what was done is a violation of the political forum rules (and maybe it should be).

For what (little) it's worth, I'm a registered independent who finds both major parties barely tolerable and I think the post in question was in poor taste and perhaps shouldn't be allowed in a political forum that purportedly has rules to promote meaningful discussion, but I don't think any expectation of privacy was breached.

I am uneased by it, and specifically by a DVD Talk moderator / administrator.

The definition of motivation is the general willingness or reason to do something. I could not think of another purpose for it to be posted.

In the title of this thread is my question: Is this allowed?

We are in agreement.

The only reasonable way to interpret that thread title is "Is doxing allowed on the DVD Talk forums?"

That's a fundamentally different question than, "Is this allowed? This looks like public political shaming in a political forum that purports to have rules for maintaining meaningful discussion."

Yes, this thread has gotten a bit off topic. Adam, myself, and VinVega will discuss this a little more in private, but I am closing the thread.
