The New York Times just did an article about fake doxxing.  I say it's dangerous.  If the Nazis start shit again in public, I'm sure they'll be caught in the act eventually.  If they lay low from now on, problem solved.

Link to the article? I'd like to read that.

The fact that there have been numerous false doxxings in the past makes me very skeptical that there will be a dramatic improvement in due diligence going forward.

That's the problem with social media.

It gives everyone the sense of entitlement to play detective, vigilante, hero.

Accusations, whether true or false is what people crave to read about.
