It sounds like you have had quite a few instances when people in your life have broken your privacy, and I am so sorry to hear of the harrassment you have experienced.
You are right that the online environment is one where we do have to be aware of the importance of privacy, and this is something SANE is really committed to. We know how much courage it takes to reach out and ask for help, particuarly in an online space, so making sure that your information is protected and secure is a high priority.
We really appreciate you sharing your experiences @Corny and it really highlights to me why pirvacy and anonymity are so important for personal safety and wellbeing online
