Quoting ☆stumbleine ☆:" Onion browser:wink: New one every time!"


I suppose for me it is more difficult since I am on a company owned computer and I can't do anything different. I can't down load browsers or reconfigure my IP address.

Say 2 members are bickering on the account in a thread. The person realizes who they are and they post a city and state saying "I'll see you in hell Michigan" because the BG secrets user said to go to hell to the member.

nice one.



i'm a little confused about the convenience of hell michigan being their city/state.



but... let's say it's not hell michigan.



let's say it's oregon city, oregon (where i grew up).



i'll see you in oregon city, oregon, you not-so-secret BG secret poster, you!



it's a clue, but not an explicit outing... but it's also definitely malicious.



IF it's in the BG secrets is the OP, they should flag it as an attack. that'll provide the malicious member a chance to calm down and shut up about it in public before they end up actually outing them and getting banned.

that's what i'm saying.



it's not a positive identifier -- it's a clue IF the member even has their actual city and state (of which there could be other BG members living there - who's to say, we have over a million members). it's not a clear connection, thus it's not the same as a true outing.

I feel like the "example" could get out of control if the offender keeps posting the other member's new locations.
