Someone who posts here has been doxxed?

LadyMcLadyCrisps Tue 13-Feb-18 12:58:32

Without being too outing (obviously) do we know how it came about?

What does doxxed mean? Someone has discovered who they are irl?

UpstartCrow Tue 13-Feb-18 13:00:41

upsideup Yes, thats what it means.

I post only here on the matter, and nowhere else for all the above reasons, although something weird happened to me the other day that made me very suspicious (cant say sadly as too outing). It could just be paranoia/coinincidence obviously, but is it possible that MN account details could be compromised?

UpstartCrow Tue 13-Feb-18 13:07:33

MN has been hacked in the past and account details posted online.

Out of interest, has anyone else had any odd things happen?

There is a poster on this thread who was doxxed:

Something weird happened to me too - have name changed to say that ! - it was almost like someone knew my real name.

Can you elaborate Something? (Only if you feel safe to do so)

Well someone posted a few times on a thread on this board (not me), and the user name had elements of my name in it. Obviously could have been a coincidence, but made me wonder.
