    1. And, some at the protest asked, are you really doxxing a person if he or she is marching on a public street, face revealed and apparently proud? It is not as though they are hiding their identities.

      This ties back to a prompt from the discussion thread about whether or not people who put themselves or content on the internet is fair game. I think in this situation it is fair game if someone is marching proudly in a parade without hiding their identity.

    2. So has “doxxing” — originally a slang term among hackers for obtaining and posting private documents about an individual, usually a rival or enemy.

      I never knew there was a term for this so it's cool to now know the name of it. I think "stalking" has become really normalized on the internet now which is concerning when you think about it, but I know I have done it before.

    1. That narrative frame is a reminder of the story everyone here is being coerced into. They must get together.

      It's another interesting aspect of these two people having their personal experiences suddenly be broadcast to everyone else, not only does the internet feel like these experiences belong to them, but they also feel the need to force them together and feel like they deserve this to be the outcome.

    2. Your consent becomes a trifling detail in a story about you that suddenly belongs to everyone else.

      I think if people were to take a step back and consider this statement and how scary it is to have your personal experiences suddenly feel like they belong to other people, we would think twice before doing things like live tweeting what others around us are doing.

    1. To be clear, there is a law that defines domestic terrorism but not one that charges people who commit acts of terrorism in America.

      This is interesting, I was not aware that there was a law defining it and yet not a law that charges people for it. Something I will probably want to look up later.

    1. I thought this was a really useful method. It's short and effective and I can definitely see myself utilizing this method in the future. I know how easy it is to fall victim to a belief that someone with a blue check is to be trusted so I'm happy to now have a tool to combat that with.
