Which says nothing good about the people judging them/ places where they get judged that way. I admit I do use this name elsewhere, but I rarely post much here, and I post nothing there anymore (not a judgment against that site, which is fine, but I like the discussions here more).The desire to not be associated with the site seems like a very abstract problem, unless one uses the same name elsewhere and expects people to actively be looking for them, finding that they ever posted here, and judging them severely because of that.
Probably. We'll see how it plays out in practice and edit the rules as necessary. It's not on our radar right now.This thread has included some very useful clarifications of what the policy means in practice. Would it be possible at some future point to incorporate some of that information in the policy statement itself (i.e. post #1)?
Yes. Part of making sure that the forum is open and welcoming to non-awful folks is letting them know they can post here without having some asshole maga at them.I have been thinking on this and I have realized, in my belated way, the obvious.

I am a teacher, so I recognise a disciplinary and educational action when I see one and this one was sorely needed.
