Back in January, Mike Cernovich wrote on his blog about how a nurse got harassed and doxed (i.e., her private info published publicly) on Twitter.
Doxing is something social justice warrior-types are often keen on doing.
Especially when someone commits some kind of thought crime.
And, from what I can tell, they do it when getting someone de-platformed fails.
But why did they do it this nurse’s case?
What hideous sin did she commit against the Collective hive mind?
For advocating clean living, of course.
Specifically, for suggesting drinking water and going to bed early would do more to help prevent anxiety than going out partying and consuming alcohol, or popping a color-wheel of prescription drugs. She even got death threats and had to shut down all her social media accounts.
Moral of the story:
When trying to get you de-platformed fails, expect to be doxed.
Another moral of the story:
It’s yet more reasons to use, control, and take advantage of other Media platforms besides friggin social media. There’s this weird assumption that you ‘need’ social media, especially when starting out, to have some kind of business presence and it simply ain’t so.
Social media is an extremely fragile business building platform at best.
There are many others to choose from.
And while it’s perfectly okay to have social media in the mix, it’s borderline insane to rely on it.
Or any one media platform, for that matter.
Yes, including email, as Mailchump has been proven quite spendidly.
If you want an A-Z training on how to stop thinking like a marketer and start thinking like a multi-media publisher (on a big or small scale) make sure you are subscribed to “Email Players” before the upcoming May issue.
The deadline is coming up fast.
And once I send it to the printer, it’ll be too late to get it.
