Hmmm...Double Standard???

Okay, I know this is not the place for this...but I vented in the only other place I can vent and am still bugged. I saw this on a discussion of someone who may or may not have been part of the YS Boards. It cam from an Admin. of the board:
"No, it's not taboo. I'm just saying.........knowing that a couple of people have signed on here under new IDs from what they had at YS, perhaps some people are looking for a clean slate. I don't know if free_flying was a YS Forumite, nor do I care. What I do care about is that free_flying has found this community, and has elected to be a part of it, and for that, I am thankful, just as I am thankful for everyone else here."
Yet, when I signed up...this person PM'd me to tell me he wouldn't "out" me...for which I am grateful...but why does one person not have their IP looked at and ID'd as a former YS Forumite and others do not? That was why I almost didn't register and went through some pains to try NOT to be ID'd by the PTB at the other site. Someone else paid my $5 and sent it from a whole other state, I tried to use a program to hide my real IP, but I goofed when I registered (which was how I was found out) and after a few days I couldn't get on using the random IPs and since one person knew who I was I figured screw it...if the rest of team knows...so be it.
But it bugs me that all of a sudden there seems to be care about privacy when mine was so obviously violated. As I said, I am very thankful that the PTB have kept the promise not to out me...but seeing that post has me upset about it all over again!

Hang in there... sometimes being nameless isn't all it's cracked up to be.
