Stop invading my privacy

Submitted by ziq in meta (edited )

I feel so violated that these people have tracked down 8 years of my internet history, youtube videos, social media accounts, blogs, photo albums, message board posts... and are demanding I answer to their paranoid accusations arising from their proud stalking. Their claims are laced with half truths, bald faced lies, and propaganda spread by my doxxers. This is not okay. No one deserves to be put under this kind of scrutiny. My life is none of their business.

The respect for other people's security culture in this place is a joke. How would you all like it if people were demanding you list all the social media accounts you've ever used? To explain comments you made years ago and even comments made by random people they insist are you because some reactionary on reddit claimed it was you?

Stop tolerating this toxic behavior.

God damn there are some strange childish people on this site. Doxxing is not cool. Ziq didn't instigate fascist attacks against anyone; he made alts to support a fledgling site, then overused them in an inappropriate manner. Chill out people.

No-one deliberately doxxed them— they just spread a kind of important username that was, if you searched, linked to his name… while in the relevant context wasn't attached to his name.


mofongo wrote

Still it's doxxing because that username is extremely public, viral news like public.

I've got to leave again now, I can't deal with being everyone's punching bag. Please take care of the place.

"Stop tolerating this toxic behavior."

Agreed, but I think it is clear at this point that any community that doesn't tolerate toxic behavior is one in which you would have no place.

You're never going to change as long as you keep rationalizing and justifying your behavior and as long as you keep seeing yourself as the victim in all this.

People are bringing your past up because it shows how your behavior here is part of a long term pattern. You only have yourself to blame for acting like this for years.

there's a difference between "here is all you need to know about ziq to prove this problem is a continous pattern of behaviour for them" and "here is what you need to figure out ziq's real identity" though


SouthsideGrackles wrote

No one would need to do the former and inadvertently do the latter if ziq wasn't such a wretched liar and manipulative bully for years.

I swear, the only people I've seen defend such an obvious liar and terrible person as ziq is Trump supporters.

You've got it.

“This is your first traffic violation? You have 54 tickets on record over the past few years—”

“Stop doxxing me!”

Stop abusing people with alts we have to find and track down.

Fuck security culture, right?

This is hardly a security problem. Finding more pseudonyms of ziq doesn't reveal any more about them than just knowing one.

It does, as news sites have revealed their name and this can be found through one of them.


365degrees wrote

They published their name along with their pseudonym. Not my problem.

except, yeah, if you're the one that publicizes the pseudonym, it is your problem. just because someone didn't keep opsec doesn't mean the one exploiting that is free of responsibility
