I'm a little uncomfortable with the personal information being revealed in this thread. [more inside]
In this thread, regarding the attacks and vandalism on Democratic Party offices nationwide, I requested a photograph of Mike Vanderboegh, the Tea Party activist who has been in the news for inciting these attacks. He has been discussed widely in mainstream media. When I asked if there were any photos of Vanderboegh, cortex said "can we please not do this" and jessamyn asked me to take it to MetaTalk if I had a problem with it. [more inside]
To etiquette/policy: How bad is it to have posted a full name with some work history while asking AskMe for help in finding that person?
In AskMe, CMichaelCook attempts to out the offline identity of a MeFite. I don't know if it's correct or not, but either way it seems completely out of place in that thread.
Posting the phone and fax number of an organization for protest seems fair game. Posting the home address of that organization's director, not so much.
