Administrators are authorized to remove personal information when they find it. Posting real names, telephone numbers, or addresses of individuals is grounds for blocking under the "threatening/harassment" option. Note that this site has very few administrators and we are not guaranteeing that we will find everything.
Most privacy violations will be removed quickly on-wiki by our volunteers. If for any reason this process fails or if you need to reach someone privately, please email email@example.com.
