Good work BJTo clarify, neither is acceptable. Clean & I discussed, all references to this guy's ID are removed and shouldn't be repeated.If someone inadvertently posts a picture with their car in the background, for example, and someone looks up the plates and posts the owner's name, is that acceptable within the rules?
In the above it might have been acceptable to identify the boat but was it acceptable to post the owner's name?
Just wanting to be clear on the rules.
Specifically - leaving a trail of breadcrumbs out there may be legally equivalent to OKing people finding you, but in terms of outing people on SA it's not how we roll. If people out themselves or post with their real names by all means call them by Tom, Dick or Harry - but even if you KNOW someone's real ID, pretense that they are private (because not everyone knows that information) should be protected.
And FFS people, a request from the "cleanup on aisle six" guy - if you see an outing DON'T FREAKING QUOTE IT TWENTY TIMES. You are just walking through the smashed jar of tomato sauce on the floor and smearing it all over the place for me.
