- Protect Private Information: Respect the privacy of others. Unless you have expressed permission, please do not post private or confidential info such as addresses, email, actual names, phone numbers, personal images, etc. Private messages and CAMs should not be reposted without expressed permission. We refer to publicly calling out people for bad behavior as outing. Regardless of where it happened, we don’t allow it here.
While I generally support the no outing policy, they have to realize the no outing rule is completely arbitrary as it should be if they are to do any kind of enforcement. To try and defend it with any kind of logical argument is a joke. I have seen the no outing rule applied to current members, former members, non members. I have also seen it ignored for the same. I have seen Model Mayhem try to argue that identifying an alias profile which uses a made up name is a violation of the real person’s privacy. Yet I have seen personal information like emails, addresses, and phone numbers for accused scammers published on the forums with impunity.
