I've never used this sock to post a thread. Most of you know me by another long-time handle. http://racistsgettingfired.tumblr.com/tagged/gotten http://racistsgettingfired.tumblr.com/ Someone started a Tumblr that is doxing people who spew vile, racist invective publicly through their social media accounts. The doxing information used to ID the racists is only what is publicly available online, and mostly posted by the account holders themselves, so it's primarily an effort powered by Google-Fu and screenshots. Nothing illegal, and no hacking. In addition to the doxing, supporters are contacting employers to inform them of their employees' bigoted public remarks. Private employers are under no obligation to respect free speech rights, and they can/will act if that speech harms the company or the company's image. Public employers also have grounds to act on employees' speech in circumstances like these (see here.) Firings have resulted, along with some lulzy apologies - that is, if you enjoy Schadenfreude. (Here's a good one.) The blog has picked up tens of thousands of followers in just a few days. It's already been written about by Business Insider and other mainstream media, most of whom have republished names and other personal information of fired racists. I'm using a sock to post this thread because I support (EDIT: in theory, not yet in practice) the activities of this Tumblr, but I also know that doxing goes against WWP's current policies. (Yes, current policies - I remember when we used to dox people right and left.) I have been, at times, under the impression that this rule applied only to fellow anons, but at other times, it has seemingly applied to everyone, as Sue's quote below suggests. From Sue's Rules thread: I've posted a poll because I am interested in the opinions of this community regarding this Tumblr's activities (doxing racists by legal means with the information they themselves posted publicly, and/or acting further to inform their employer). Feel free to respond below, as well.
