    1. Mostly male video-game players began to publish personal information — including home address and phone numbers

      This sounds about right the new online bullying. Which is probably illegal but not sure.

    2. doxxing a person if he or she is marching on a public street,

      I thought doxing was an online action of releasing information about the person online and supposedly frighten them?

    3. “At least then there was shame.”

      Shouldn't there be shame still?, But I guess that most can bare the fact they are seen without a mask.

    1. “Have not been this riveted since the final episode of Lost, and this *didn’t* piss me off! Amazing!” wrote one Twitter user in reply to Blair’s thread.

      Another issue that I haven't yet considered, but the way how we receive entertainment at the expense of others, whether intended or not should be a concern in how we continue to consume the internet. Could this be related to parasocial relationships?

      I remember this! I actually have some of their fridge magnets! Its also crazy to think that they created a Business out of it so early in internet history!

    2. There is no official definitive answer for whether a use can be considered fair, as every case must be judged on its own merits, but there are some types of use generally allowed under fair use, including criticism and commentary, parody, journalism, education, and research.

      I think this is the most trickiest thing when it comes to laws relating to ethics and fair use. As it states every case must be judge by its own merits, and its not just some cookie cutter law that is easy to apply. It reminds me of how a lot of video creators (specifically the YTPMV community) would experience lots of takedowns and DMCA strikes despite their content being within the realms of fair use! Creating algorithms to detect copyright just doesn't work but that's a rant for another day
