Popehat calls out reddit on its doxxing policy, yet again. Truereddit freaks out, says Popehat doesn't understand the difference between doxxing and identifying somebody in real life. I can't say I sympathize with the point of view of most of the truereddit posters. I don't think it is that big of a deal to identify somebody no matter where they are. ViolentAcrez was being a horrible person online and stopped once he was identified. Pastor Bell was being a shitty person in real life and deserved to be identified. But reddit's official, administrative policy is that nobody is allowed to be identified. Basically, linking to a news story that identifies a criminal or suspect would, I think, violate their stupidly broad policies. But as the policy is only there to defend redditors, stuff like this gets a slap on the wrist at best.
