GUEST,Giok Folklore: Gallows Humour-laughing at death/disease (205* d) RE: Folklore: Gallows Humour-laughing at death/disease 16 Mar 09


As I said before though, Guest posts are allowed above the line, we have been told that several times. So if the over eager clone had left it alone, after checking who posted it really [which they can do] then the misunderstanding would not have arisen. :)

GUEST, Giok, that is a mistatement of the policy, as you know. Even above the line, anonymous posts from "GUESTS" should have a consistent identity. The use of double ID's is not allowed, which is what was done in this case. There are exceptions to this rule, in which reasonable latitude is allowed. For example if using one's real identity would cause them real jeopardy or embarassment. That is not the same as saying you can just do it anytime you want. The other exception would be where it is very clear that a music/information request is from someone who obviously has surfed in and made a request, unknowing of the rules.
