There are 2 camps:
- There should be an expectation of some privacy.
- There is no expectation of privacy.
But I suspect people would object. Why?
Because publishing that type of personal information without permission is not appropriate behavior. It's not against the law -- it's bad manners. So then it seems there is some expectation of privacy or at least some expectation of what can or should be reposted by a third party.
What I have posted on this blog is my ideas and opinions. Technically, the material is copyrighted which is unenforceable.
However, I have assumed that personal information from my blog would not end up being the center of 2 'fights' on another website. What happened is that someone posted to another site about Peaches. This person announced her to the group -- it really was my place to do that but she did it. So be it. Two problems with this, however:
1.) I have received nasty emails from someone in that group or someone that watches that group. I did not want Peaches to be included in those emails, so I did not mention her there. Now I will probably get nasty emails and I, not the person who posted about Peaches, will have to deal with those nasty emails.
2.) I have had problems with that website and this blog. Some members feel that I have no right to mention what is said there on this blog. I have abided by that. I assumed that the reverse was true -- what was posted here would not be mentioned on that website. This assumption was wrong. So, if it is alright to post about my blog, then I will now assume I can post about things from that website.
