(Not the actual TOS because not displayed and there is no indication of consent to nondisclosure while viewing such "confidential" content. It is not so labelled.)Members are required to keep confidential the contents of forums which are not in public view, including all members-only forums. Failure to do so may involve restrictions on viewing that content, or suspension of the member’s account.
Routinely, posts on WPO violate the TOS, with regard to content that is "abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated," etc. Regulars have been allowed to troll their targets with grossly abusive posts, far beyond the pale of legitimate criticism. Some of this may be in private areas, and some has been disclosed.
I have disclosed some of this, as I recall, and have received no complaints of privacy violation.
Is a witch-hunt for the whistle-blower next? Will a reward will be offered for the identity of the snitch, who dared to supply information to a journalist?
