I would welcome AMG user feedback on the following:
A user contacted me recently with a complaint that his anonymity had been compromised. Apparently another AMG user posted a link to his Facebook page.
Two important points:
1- The user posts to AMG using his actual first and last name
2- The user leaves his Facebook page open to public view, instead of setting his profile to private, as many Facebook users do.
Because the user had no anonymity on AMG, it is my position that his anonymity has not been compromised. The user made the choice to post under his name.
Further, I am not deleting the link to his Facebook page, because again- this is a publicly-accessible webpage that could be made private by the user, but it isn't.
I think it's a little bit ridiculous to have to explain that when you post under your real name you are not anonymous, but perhaps I am missing something.
I would appreciate the opinion of the AMG community on this one.
