PRIVACY AND SECURITY
Today
at 6:57pm
I would like to take this opportunity to give people a reminder about their rights and responsibilities regarding privacy:

You are responsible for your own privacy. We can ban people for posting your personal information and stalking you, but we cannot actually prevent it from happening. So don’t post personal information about yourself here, someone will end up tracking you down. This will be your fault.

Do not join either of Freedivers forums if you value your privacy. FD pays only lip service to protecting your privacy and personal information. I am serious about this: I was doxxed including photos from a homebrew website. The photos were passed around to members of the so–called PA there, then I was defamed with use of one of those photos. FD did nothing at all about any of this except to let IQ back into OzPol! A reward?

So NEVER give out the name of your town or suburb, state or capital city or “rural Qld” etc is enough.

The danger is mainly or solely from members of FD’s two forums. (We have suffered a hacking attack of the server on which this forum resided at the time, and such attacks are always possible but do not tend to harvest personal details.)

I have changed members’ posts to make their location vague but I may not see all such occurrences.

One member of FD’s website by the name of IQ, and others, are particularly keen doxxers. I cannot prevent him/them from reading the open forums here—up to you! IQ is supposed to have been away from FD’s website—maybe.

Make sure you have a good, long password and don’t store it in clear on your PC!

However, I am serious about all this. Members of FD’s forums ARE into doxxing and FD does NOT do anything about it. Other scoundrels exist on the web. Be vague about where you live, use good long passwords.

He is an idiot, killing his forum with dishonest arguments and constant Muslim bashing. His membership is leaving so he attacks us rather than change the way he mismanages his two forums.

He should create an MRB and call that PA then delete that sick forum. At least the sewer turds then contribute to his advertising revenue. I have long thought that, there is nothing (good) in the sewer that would not fit in OzPol.

It does not look like FD is going to move his forum to an SQL driven forum software. Another turn off—long time to load pages, the need to flip pages etc. Things like the utter scumbag cods attacking my mother when I am tied down and can’t stay in Tassie full time because I am her carer. If not a bannable offence still family should NEVER be used to attack someone. Never mind, another member or two from OzPol will come here as a result of all the public airing of dirty linen lately—IQ ran rampant doxxing then defaming and FD did nothing. That is the lesson from that thread. Bet it will disappear soon.

Yes, good idea.

Your privacy is not safe there.

You are not safe from nasty lies there.

One GMod is the pits, abusing members, taking sides.

You are not safe from abuse there—I think that and incredibly bad modding is costing FD members and his attack thread is going to accelerate that drift away. If they come here which I hope most will then OzPol has a chance to attract them back. If members drift to Twitter or FaceBook there is no common culture, members unlikely to return. FD knows this so why the attack on me and Aussie? I doubt that thread is an incentive for people to stay or join there.

What will FD do when membership decrease sees OzPol cost him $300 a month, $350? Attack someone else? Will be interesting and amusing to watch the increasing flailing about. It is so self inflicted. What fucking madness drove FD to let IQ back into OzPol? I cannot work it out. As well as a well known doxxer IQ cannot help but attack those that did better in life than he did. FD lost his best Mod and I think Phemanderac(?) through that boneheaded play. His penchant for muslim bashing has driven some others away. Then he lies a lot—JohnSmith had experience of that not that long ago. Not a good look.

Glad I got this board to come back to! Not saying it is perfect but abuse (does flow when debate is running hot) not a big thing here. Attacks on family nonexistent. Not a single member here has ever been doxxed and it will stay that way! OzPol cannot say that, abuse is rife and doxxing there exists even in OzPol. I have not received a single complaint about modding.

I see always-a-follower-never-a-leader SN had to follow the vile bitch cods in involving my family. Next it will be done to someone who is going to create a storm over that and a few members will leave more or less at the same time. Then who will FD blame? Anyone but himself as usual.

Not only does he let others do the dirty work he is happy to create fraudulent screenshots during shitfights.

Not a person to be trusted or relied upon. treacherous.

I remember there was some truly slanderous things aimed at you. I hope you realise I tried to rise to your defence at times... but I didn't realise it was SN. Anyway, trolls are a part of life.

Not here if I can help it.

We will likely see more and more OzPol members coming here: one or two might get turned away.
