All kneel before Halo, for it's the best. Stalker should definitely look like Halo.

---QUOTATION---
Would I be violating the new offtopic rules about "posting another users personal information without consent" if I ventured to correct a certain misinformed assumption of Marius Lecter about Hhiker?...This talk about tightening the rules is making me a bit nervous...
---END QUOTATION---



Hypothetically:
if it was information that i had not already posted all around myself (which in this case i have) then i would ask in return: why would you rather not let me (or anyone for that matter, if it was their personal details) correct the assumption if i so choose?
Or - why would you be so reluctant to ask the other person "is it OK to share this?"

I personally find it rather unfair if somone, say, has remembered or acquired a bit of information about someone else ("I know what your name is!" I know where you live!" etc.) and goes around spreading it to everyone as some great oracle or in-circle buddy without considering - or asking - if that person whishes this information to be shared. (Think of the excited parent telling the visitors all about your teenage self for example. Charming, isn't it?)

It would be (in my eyes) a different matter, though, if it was referring/linking to the information someone has indeed previously posted in the forum.


Btw.
Just because the expectations/boundaries are spelled out doesn't make them tighter. It just makes them known and clearer. (I personally insisted the points of "ask before you share someone else's information" and "let everyone speak for themselves" to be incorporated to the "Offtopic amendment".)

Point made.

LoL, apparently not.
My point was- "ask first and don't be shy to do so"
(And about that consent - you got it, duckie [<<- here's me hoping the nic-improvisation is OK]. Go ahead and scratch those itching assumptions )

I didn't get your point hhiker? And that was after reading your post about 5 times... maybe I should have called myself "Slowduck"...
So @ MariusLecter & with hhikers permission, allow me to rephrase your friendly remark...You can't cage a free bird, lady...Sounds way cool too.....And I must be so far offtopic that next time I'll mind my own business...

The opposite: i thought i had phrased it poorly so it sounded more harsh than it was supposed to be.
(Can i pull the "non-native English speaker card" here?)
