    I know on FT this was not allowed but looking through the terms and rules, it seems to only apply to members of the MP thus anyone you post about outside this is fair game. Is this correct? We this change in the future?

    A good example with a lot of posts with private email address and employee names is here

    Identity Theft and Privacy: Members that misleadingly appropriate the identity of another person are not permitted. Members may not post other member’s personally identifying or confidential information, including but not limited to names and addresses unless already publicly accessible on the Web. Hate Content, Defamation, Libel, and Obscenities: Hate speech and other objectionable content that is unlawful, defamatory, fraudulent, willfully inaccurate, obscene or libelous is not permitted. Note that an allegation of defamatory expression, in and of itself, does not establish defamation. The truth or falsehood of a bit of expression is a key element in establishing defamation, and we are not in a position to make that sort of fact-based judgment. That said, if we have reason to believe that a particular statement is defamatory, we will remove that statement.
