I'm going to an IRL meetup later today, and as an extrovert I love meeting new people, adding them to my friends list on FB, and inviting them to fun things. However, I like to maintain boundaries between my online and offline personas, and my privacy will take precedence over establishing new friendships in 99% of all situations.

I know that MetaFilter has penalties for doxxing somebody on MetaFilter itself (for example, if somebody posted my FB profile on MetaFilter) - but how severe are they, and generally how good do they tend to be at discouraging this sort of behavior? The reason I ask is because I'm trying to figure out what my trust level with other MeFites needs to be at before I decide whether or not to add them as a friend on FB.
