Moonlighting is closing her blog.
Evidently after her comment on CCG’s blog, some individuals took it upon themselves to prove to her how easily she could be identified. The amount of effort they spent, and were willing to continue to spend, as well as the implied threat to her privacy, were enough to cause Moonlighting concern.
Now comes the additional fallout. How many other providers with blogs will close their blog? How many more will censor what they have to say, simply because they wish some privacy? I cannot see CCG continuing her blog after this, and I would not expect they will be the only two.
Perhaps Moonlighting did have a false sense of security regarding how well her identity was cloaked. I wonder in driving that point home until she felt harassed, vulnerable, and frightened really did any good. Or perhaps those who sent the emails felt they were somehow morally and intellectually superior.
What I see is another voice silenced. More stories lost, more words unspoken. Another chance to see, learn and grow destroyed by pettiness and ignorance.
You are precious Moonlighting, you will be missed.
