    So today I was addressed by a member with my name, but my blue room information as well, which said person claims not to have access to. This is clearly a rule loophole. How do we address it!

    The board shouldn't address it. There is no rule that could be created for a situation like this. One doesn't know how he got it. For all we know you told him some years back and just don't remember it.

    He didn't say it out in the open on the board so I'm not seeing anything but whining on your part to try and get him in trouble. Shouldn't you be concentrating on today with the personal introspection instead of picking fights on Wordforge?

    Once again if you don't want personal info out there you shouldn't be posting it. Even in the Blue Room. You're insane if you think Blue Room information is secure and doesn't get passed around to other members from time to time in private messages or other ways.

    It hasn't been posted. This is information gathered from the Blue Room and Facebook, particularly the latter. Your argument is that it's okay for people for farm personal information from such sources and directly attack people with it over PM? This is a situation where this sort of shit transcends WF. In my country such malicious communication is illegal and subject to prosecution. I have no idea who WAB is. Is it right that he attacks me over PM and makes my WF experience miserable?

    Look, I went through this whole paranoia dance, but it does no good.
    It just damaged my health, and got no results.

    Imagine the worst case scenario, that they've read every board posting on every forum, in your whole entire fucking life, read all your e-mails, bugged your house, and watched you shit and jerk off, and tapped your phones.

    ....the best they can do with all that, is make shitty PM comments?
    They're cowards, don't sweat 'em.

    If you had not made it public no one would know this was going on.

    You could have kept this secret between you and the owners and WAB. But no as you're as big a trouble maker as WAB you put it out in public and then came in here whining about it because you're trying to force the owners into punishing WAB just like 14th Doctor did way back then with Jaime.

    I made no argument that it was okay to do such a thing only that you're stupid to think such information was ever going to be secure on this board.

    And he can't make your WF experience miserable. Delete his PM and put him on ignore.

    Dude, it's out. Ignoring the haters is probably your best course.

    Can't really see that Wordforge has any standing here. Information gleaned from outside Wordforge and not publicly posted here has never been our concern. I'm not seeing any particular infraction, and I especially can't comprehend how this might be illegal. Best option if you think you are being trolled is ignoring the troll.
