Name and Shame

Skinbook has launched a "Name and Shame" blog in order to expose the "perverts, fakers and sex pests" who try and join the social network for nudists and naturists.

This is one of the worst ideas I've ever seen. I'm not even going to provide a link.

Not only does the blog violate just about every privacy issue possible by naming names with email and physical addresses, it actually offers to remove the names and photos in exchange for an apology. That's the definition of blackmail.

Take down your Name and Shame blog, Skinbook. Screening and filtering charlatans is enough; exposing them in this manner could potentially be criminal.
