(Hear ye, hear ye, there is NO such thing as privacy on the internet. Be careful what you post, I don't want to follow the parade and sweep up the personally identifiable information that you leave behind. Please THINK about things, like "hmm, do I use this username for everything I do on the web?". I am not about giving away personal data, and won't (according to the other terms below) however, if you are a grownup, act like one. The whole privacy thing is a technical debate, but finding the author of a message is a function of resources and time, not technology. Be wary!) -- On with the exceptions:
In short, I reserve the right to treat all correspondence with me and the bulletin board as public property. I realize this is not the Athenian forum, but this isn't a bathroom wall at a truckstop.
Look, I love privacy and I will meet you halfway on this entire email, IP address thing. It's a Golden Rule situation.
However, if you do any of the following things the gloves will come off.
I will share your email, and possibly IP address, if:
Seems reasonable doesn't it?
Don't use people's real names. Especially if you aren't using your own, that is the pinnacle of cowardice.
And just in case you didn't get it... I don't support, condone, sanction or encourage illegal acts. There are plenty of legal ways to prove your point.
Finally, please don't curse. Try to say what you want in more innovative language. You can think of it as a creative writing exercise.
If these things bother you, don't post. You don't need to send me an email telling me how I am a hypocrite. Just start ihateihatestarbucks.com, or go for a walk or something.
