I just realized that I have been unknowingly following the same person on both Tumblr and WordPress, and now my brain is fritzing trying to reconcile two very different writing styles.
So that this post isn’t just one sentence, this actually provides a good place to talk about something I’ve been thinking about for a while: standards of anonymity/privacy.
1. The usual obvious standard: from this information, could a random stranger find the legal name/contact info of this person?
2. Sometimes also a relevant standard: from this information, could someone who already knows this person be reasonably confident that I am talking about the person they know?
#2 is much, much harder to avoid.
