Open letter to Yvonne in reply to her blog,
I will reply just the once. That your photo was attached to my shared blog post on to FB. was definitely a SOFTWARE ISSUE which has been fixed. No amount of saying it was not so, changes the very real life fact that it was the direct result of the FB implementation of the OG protocol which caused a random image to be selected from the linked page, based on the OG information provided in the shared link combined with the size of the available images. This is where your image came from. This is reality talking. To demonstrate I attach a link to someone else having the same issue with FB blog/link/image shares (remember this is only one of many similar posts), which describes the technical issue in question.
The related issue of privacy is one which is simply misinformed, and no amount of "spin" will change the facts. There is no arse-wiping on the Naktiv site, privacy is something which each individual is responsible to set for themselves, as described extensively in the onsite documentation. To pretend this is an issue for the site is to purposefully misrepresent the situation, and you know that too. There is no such thing as "members are expected to honour…permissions". This is the internet, (reality again), and even if you wish to request permission from someone (very laudable I'm sure), somebody else will almost certainly not. When you go onto FB. (for example) your material is sharable UNLESS you secure it. Precisely the same situation is in place on the Naktiv site – this is not rocket science. For your continued reference, the privacy documentation on the Naktiv site is available here:
Your extreme anger and out-of-control rage, which was directed towards me personally and to the Naktiv site generally, over an entirely made-up story, was completely uncalled for and ensured the end of an otherwise productive relationship. While I was not surprised to find your friend Laurie joining forces with you against the authority figure, I do admit to being quite surprised that the therapist Robert stepped in (again) to manipulate you and your emotions during this debacle. Most unprofessional, cynical and unfriendly too.
In an effort to pour oil on a churning sea, I declared on several occasions that this issue was fanned by several people, for their own personal agenda, and that no single individual was responsible for the morass which was being unreasonably generated. That you and your friends persist in "pointing the finger", and attempting to undermine the the Naktiv site is wrong, and you know that too. We all had our part to play in this unfortunate affair when it escalated beyond calm discussion. The only censorship which occurred during the storm was in a perhaps misguided effort to stop the spread of inflammatory and hysterical misinformation. Furthermore, persistently trying to damage the reputation of the Naktiv site which, as you know, is firmly against the idea of censorship in principle, just because someone has said "no" to you, and called a halt to the misplaced tantrum, is quite simply unnecessary.
That you appear incapable of modifying your opinion in the face of the truth, and persist in spreading what you know to be erroneous FUD, is very sad. Deciding how we present ourselves to the world, and the stories we tell, is of course a personal choice for us all and it's not possible for me to ensure that you tell the truth. Nevertheless, despite your current level of venom, and on the basis of the effort you did undoubtedly put into the Naktiv site, Yvonne, I do wish you and your friends well for the future.
ps. people are welcome to return to the Naktiv site once the fever has subsided.
