Arguing about the "ethics" of doxing is really on the level of arguing about the ethics of dumping a bucket of pig shit over someone's head just for giggles. Ethics barely enters into it at all.
You're completely right. The point I was trying to make, and am still trying to make, is that right or wrong, it's not a topic up for debate, because it happens here and it will continue to happen and the only reason people who only come to the Farms for Beauty Parlour don't know that is because they're generally shielded from that aspect of the site. So when they get upset about stuff like that, I have to remind them where they are. Sometimes, me saying it works, and sometimes, it doesn't, and they find out the hard way. I'm trying to keep people from finding out the hard way.

If people are getting doxed here, it's because they fucked up by uploading their address and/or personal information that can be abused by others, not to mention whatever eccentric fetish porn they've decided to upload on Deviantart.

Meaning of course that it's justified here.

lol are you joking? Didn't you dox some poor random girl for insulting you and then try to blackmail her with the dox?
No. I warned someone who signed up just to pick fights with people after she unsuccessfully used guest posting to pick fights with people that using a photo from her Facebook as her user pic when she only signed up here to insult people was a bad idea. I let you think what you want because I am not particularly concerned about whether you think I'm a bad person or not.

No Shit is Too Minor!

Okay guys, listen. A number, address, real name, email address, etc. aren't funny in and of themselves. What is funny? Things that may potentially be attached to it. Dox commonly lead to finding out other funny, salient, interesting or dramatic parts of a lolcow's life. By limiting the search to no dox, you can potentially miss out on some interesting stuff. You can find out that they lied about their past, that they live in a seedy neighborhood, that they still live in their parent's basement, that they are being supported by an Aunt who dislikes them, etc. These things can cascade to other funny and interesting things. They might not. But limiting the discussion based on some constructed perception of the dangers of some personal info being dropped is silly.

Let's look at the case of Kiwi Farms. We collect this info by the truckload. There have only been a handful of instances where the info collected here has been used to engage with a cow, and in each instance where staff discovered it, we have ridiculed and dressed down the people who engaged in the exceptional behavior. Look at the case of @A Hot Pizza (formerly @A Hot Potato). He got stupid and decided to call a pizza in for a lolcow, people are still needling him and he had a name change over it.

Further, this info is public info. If someone wants to find it, they can find it with enough effort. We aren't super secret elite spies, just exceptional individuals shitposting on the online. Getting your dox dropped only means as much as you perceive it to mean. It can happen on KF and if you never see it, it can likely never even impact you.

tl;dr calm down, dox aren't a big deal.
I agree with you. If it leads to something funny then go for it which is why I see the point of posting addresses. But whats the point of posting a phone number? How does that lead to entertainment? Its just a direct line to I HAVE AUTISM PLEASE LAUGH AT MEing someone with less effort and consequences than sending something in the mail.

I mean if they are assholes like Nick Bate then fuck it I dont care but we shouldnt make it easier to I HAVE AUTISM PLEASE LAUGH AT ME. If someone wants to I HAVE AUTISM PLEASE LAUGH AT ME let them go look up the phone number themselves.

Doxing doesn't make someone a bad person. What's wrong with being a bad person anyway?

It wasn't the doxing that was bad, it was the blackmail, which I did not do. About being a bad person, I'd just rather not actively try to be one, but I probably fail at that. Hence my presence here.

I'm immune to @Dynastia. I'm only defending myself here because this is the subforum where I'm a mod, and I don't want people to think they can't trust me to not be a nefarious asshole when it comes to mod decisions.

Lies. No one is immune to @Dynastia's stunning good looks and devilish charm. You only say this now because I had to fight you off my darling doxer snickerdoodle after you kept flinging your vajay-jay at him, which in all honestly no one here blames you for.
You know, I kind of love you. I didn't even know it was possible.
