The Motley Fool champions active and open debate among our members. All we ask is that it's done in a lawful and civil manner -- be it posting on our boards, commenting on blogs or articles, replying to CAPS pitches, or using our system to contact a fellow member in any way. Accordingly, you agree to use The Motley Fool for lawful purposes only. You may not use or allow others to use your Fool membership to:

Post or transmit any content that is disruptive, uncivil, abusive, vulgar, profane, obscene, hateful, fraudulent, threatening, harassing, defamatory, or which discloses private or personal matters concerning any person;

But what about when that person has divulged very personal information about him/himself in a board here at the Fool? Shouldn't they be more careful? If you really want anonymity, don't give out clues.

What if they have? Bottom line is that when someone specifically posts a response requesting that others not use their real name, and then one of those people not only uses it, but uses it repeatedly over several threads on several boards it's wrong and it's a violation of the rules. Plain and simple.
