Revealing one's identity


Recommended Posts

Perhaps one of the moderators could advise on this conundrum please.

 

It has been mentioned on a recent thread that anyone making remarks that might be construed as critical should use their full name.

 

A parent revealing their own identity would also then be inadvertently identifying their own child.

 

Please could you clarify this position as many members (particularly on the "Doing Dance" section) have dancing children under 16 (who have the right to remain anonymous and whose identity shouldn't really be revealed on a public forum).

 

Thank you.

Interesting question taxi. It should be remembered that we only ask people to post "highly critical" comments under their full name, and that as this rule is a part of our Acceptable Use Policy to which every Forum Member agrees when joining.

 

This is by no means a new rule and the situation was the same in the days of "old" Ballet.co.

 

I would think that the easiest way for any member to ensure the anonymity of their child/ren is simply NOT to post highly critical comments in the first place - thereby avoiding the need for a Moderator to ask the poster to post under his or her real name. :-)

Not 'critical' but 'highly critical', an important difference. Critical comments are important, highly critical ones often seem to come as a rush of blood to the head. The answer, as spanner says, is to avoid personal attacks (which is largely what we are talking about). And, rest assured, BalletcoForum moderators or administrators are not going to 'out' a member if they feel that someone has overstepped the mark: we have no more idea of people's real names than you.
