I won’t give out any personal information you give me. I don’t really know why I’d ask for any, but, if I do, I won’t give it out.
If you email me in response to an article, you have given me permission to place part(s) or the whole email on my site. Most of the time, I’ll ask you if you mind this, just to be a nice guy, but I consider myself under no requirement to ask. Most of the time, I’ll just use the name that you used to sign the message, or if there is none, I’ll use the username of your email account. If I want people to email to regarding your email to me, I’ll post your email address, too.
Summary: I won’t give out any information you give me, unless you email me, in which case I may give out your name, email address, and/or the contents of your email.
Don’t be a schmuck. If you’re going to submit something of mine to a social bookmarking site like Digg or Del.icio.us or a news site like Slashdot, please give me a heads up so that I can make sure that I’ve got caching working and that I’ve turned off a few potentially unnecessary things I’m potentially running on my server.
