PSA - Clarification of rule #3 on doxxing.
3. Doxing is not allowed.

Use of your real name as a user name, in posts, signatures, bios, etc. is not considered doxxing when used by another forum member. Doxxing is when a person's identity is revealed by someone else without consent.

Me too, at first. It’s like this: if you use your real name here, another member calling you by that name is not doxing.

It's not considered doxxing if you out yourself and someone repeats it.

So we can say "Mad Hooters" all day long and not get in trouble?

Or another way: staff cannot action against a member for using publicly, another member’s real name if that member has already publicly disclosed the information themselves. Even if there are regrets.

What if it's on accident?

Example:

Poster 1: Listen, guy!

Poster 2: That is actually my name.




Are floggings still the preferred method of punishment?

You can. Not sure why you would want to, though.
