I'm going to post here now that the dust has settled somewhat.
Shar Kida - you are a guy I have always had a great deal of respect for at the JC, and that is why I am so disappointed with you. In choosing to move from 'Unofficial Observer' to 'Unofficial Informer' you have saddened me immensely.
The Refuge Batcave contains some very intimate details of my life - incidents too painful and secretive for me to discuss in real life. Airing these issues in the sanctity of the Refuge allows me to get the typical sympathetic reactions of 'friends' without worrying about the real-life trend for gossip and tale-telling. I'm sure other members will agree with me.
To see personal thoughts and comments posted on the TFN discussion boards, which have thousands of active members, disturbs me. The thought of you having my personal thoughts and details of my life, ready for cutting and pasting onto the JC Community board makes me sick and you've shown you have no qualms about doing that already.
Using access to the Refuge to formulate intricate philosophies and theories about the development of the internet is one thing - it's snooping. Voyeurism. Spying. To use this information for your own purposes in the public domain is grassing. You are a grass.
What, exactly, is this "personal information"? I have seen none of it.
