Spat between Chief Minister and Dr Glover


Recommended Posts

Ok John, so say I found my real name posted here and I objected to that, what could I realistically do about it?

Equally say I wanted all my past posts deleted, is there nothing to cover that? When you delete a Facebook account for example all the posts get deleted with it.

Ouch, this thread is back. Not unexpected I suppose. 

Have you never heard the term whistle-blowing? Dr G. tried every avenue and was well aware of what was at risk on her island. She isn't doing this for publicity, she's been offered far better gigs tha

With respect, you are. Without @rachomics on island PCR testing for covid would not have happened when it did, if at all. Of course, Rizwan Khan and Steve Doyle were vital too - sorry don’t know Dr Sh

That depends. If someone outed you by identifying you we’d delete the references and ban the poster who did it. That’s a breach of the T&C.

If you’re just named because of something you’ve achieved, said, or done in the public eye or sphere, then we wouldn’t be doing anything.

But if someone identified Amadeus or wrighty it wouldn’t be the same. They use those names to post, but we all know, because they’ve self disclosed, who they are.

Just because Dr Glover is named doesn’t raise a T&C issue. She’s a public figure who has chosen to post openly here, and elsewhere with her frank and forthright views about certain things. She’s made no secret as rachomics that she is Dr Glover.

No, we don’t delete all a single posters posts on request. Ever. That’s a TJ request.

Thems the rules. Non negotiable. You signed up for them. And in relation to this matter they aren’t up for discussion. That would be challenging a moderating decision. Someone has to make them. If you don’t like them then please feel free to express your freedom of speech elsewhere.

Thanks John, It’s not the answer I wanted but I’m glad its clarified things none the less. I only really post here as I don’t agree with the way Facebook uses people’s data.

Its here forever, like most  of the internet, think before you post before you drink 😄

Forums and their members seem to be a dying breed anyway, I’ll be amazed if this forum still exists in say 10 years time. It would only take one big legal case to wipe it off the internet and it’s certainly had a few close shaves in the past, perhaps without John Wright’s input it might not even exist now?

To use as an example say this current D.B.C employment tribunal case, the worker was found in favour yet has been publicly named as its a court document, as a result if you search his name on Google you’ll see numerous news articles and discussions including on here, it does seem unfair to me to have your name publicly spread like that, If that was someone significantly younger I wonder if it would have any impact on their future / their career? I mean for the sake of 5k I’d rather keep my name out of the public domain, which seems counter productive, it’s a shame we don’t have a right to privacy.

Has it not always been thus ? IOM newspapers have always listed property sales and until not long ago, well maybe a bit more long ago divorces (including details of those involved in adultery ) . Google has just made finding out stuff easier.

Say you are a murderer or a rapist and your case is reported in the paper. Do you have a right to privacy? Matter of degree I guess

Thing is legal proceedings are mostly open and public, and rightly so.  There is the right to be forgotten for stuff on the Internet.

Well this forum seems to contradict that view. This and other forums are making a comeback. Like Phoenix.

Personally, I would be happy to see this thread deleted completely. No-one likes to see a thread with their (real) name as the title and which contains personal opinions of testimony that put words in my mouth (both positively and negatively). 

methinks thou doth protest too much

Agreed. But your argument would be more convincing if you had not contributed to this thread with your own words, thus lending it more legitimacy
