  1. Depending on where you look, someone's first name is either considered "personal information" or it's considered that only when it can pretty uniquely identify the person, like saying "Randall, who lives in lower Upper Sandusky and owns the shop on 14th Street"… Anyway, the gist of it is this. On another forum, I said basically "Randall, you and I draw the line at different points." (or some such), using the person's name just as I would in real life. The person's name isn't the same as his username, but those who know who he is know his real name. He's never gone too far out of his way to hide it. It's in public documents on the forum when he signs up for events, or to get packages shipped to him, etc. I don't consider saying "Randall, blah blah blah" to be "doxxing" but that's what I was then tagged with, even though within about 90 seconds, I deleted the name at the request of the person named. What gives here? Doxxing is not just saying "Randall…". That's your name. I didn't give his social security number. He can't be uniquely identified. His boss can't search the Internet for "Randall" and find out that he's posting about stuff on company time. His name isn't QX47Petar (or something else pretty unique). Now, I'm not going to pretend I don't also think "anonymity" online is stupid. I think the Internet would be a better place if, when people are discussing things with one another, they put their name on their opinions. That they manned up and said "here is what I think" and effectively signed their card. (I'm generally against companies being creepy and collecting a bunch of unique data about you, selling it, whatever.) I think if you're going to put your name out there, others can use it to talk to you. It's civil, it's personable. If you're worried about your boss finding out that you're spending all day posting online instead of doing work, that's your problem. Whatever. Venting over. I'm unconvinced that posting someone's first name is a sin. P.S. Yeah, this is from 2013:
