Writers & artists who have your own website domains, you should really read this letter and sign it as well. Here's the gist:

When you purchase a domain name (like ktempestbradford.com) you have to give the registrar WOHIS data that includes name, address, phone number, and other information. This information must be correct to abide by certain terms of service. That info is also often public, and harassing assholes know this. That's how they're often able to get address information on a person they're looking to abuse. 

My registrar offers a WHOIS Guard service that allows me to make that info private for a fee. This is probably standard. But from the letter at the link, it looks like a new proposed rule would make it so that ALL WHOIS information for certain types of websites must be made public regardless. The language seems to be a bit murky, but could mean that anyone with a PayPal donate button or who sells eBooks, art, whatever from their website would end up under the umbrella of Commercial and therefore must have their WHOIS info public. 

So this is not good.

That's why people who have domain names of their own should be concerned, especially if they're from groups likely to be targeted by harassers. This effects women, people of color, LGBTQA+, and other marginalized folks.

Bottom line: You should sign this letter and you should share this info.

I feel like there's an awesome game or comic to be written about this. What if it wasn't a scam?

A Kentwood High School student programmed it when it was installed in the 1980s. Whenever the district has a problem with it, they go back to the original programmer who still lives in the area.

Very cool Bundle of Holding: pretty much all of Trail of Cthulhu!

Looks like I'll be traveling to Japan tomorrow: anyone got any quick recommendations for fun, not-too-taxing airplane reads?
