READ. THIS. POST.
PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FRIENDS FROM BEING DOXXED.
First, the definition of “dox”: “to search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.”
Tonight I sat down to write a simple post listing all of the people who have been doxxed/threatened in regards to Gamergate. I reached out through Twitter asking people for names and the amount of names I received was surprising. I reached out to @TetraD20 for more information and the talk we had was frightening.
These are the facts.
1. There is a 3rd party to Gamergate. This party is responsible for many of the doxxes that have happened on both sides. They do not have a side. They have been doing this purely for their own entertainment.
2. These people are not hackers. All of their “doxxing” information comes from online sites known as white pages.
3. What they are doing is not illegal. All of the information is already available on these sites. They are within legal realms to post information from one public source to another.
4. YOU CAN STILL PROTECT YOURSELF. You can go to each site and HIDE YOUR DETAILS.
List of sites and how to remove/hide your details
Yellowpages : At this time, changes cannot be done through the White Pages process.
To remove your White Pages information, do a Find By Name or Find By Phone Number search on your listing. Make sure you are on a results page with a single listing (if you are seeing multiple listings on the page, click on your name to get to the single listing page). Then simply click the “Remove Listing” link found on the returned listing and fill out the removal form. Your request will be processed within one business day.
These were as many sites as I could find. If you find any more then please let me know and I will add it to the list.
These sites can show your addresses, your phone number, even the names of your friends to the entire internet. Find every single white page site you can and hide your details.
More information on the doxxings.
What are their names? We should report them!
- What they are doing is not illegal. Giving you their names and publicizing their actions will only give them the publicity that they have been trying so hard to achieve.
Why have we not heard of this before?
- Honestly, this information would have been found out a LOT sooner if people weren’t so quick to assume that the people they are fighting against were the ones responsible for these acts.
