Nice balanced article from David Werdiger on the abuse of identity

Please read it here

As I have also noted many times in the past, those who allege that they are a victim (and a fortiori if they are in fact a victim) need to have their identity protected and kept from the public eye, anyone brought in for questioning to do with a case should have their identity protected. If someone names them, or even leaks by going to the press (Jewish or otherwise), then I’d suggest that those people need to take a very long hard look at themselves noting that they have caused damage for which they are solely responsible and for which they would need to beg forgiveness from Rabbi Glick. Kavod HaTorah and Chillul Hashem, though, are perhaps something Rabbi Glick is unable to forgive them for, as that is between Man and Hashem. For this, they would face a Din and Cheshbon elsewhere.

The press, and that extends to the pseudo soap box press of the internet and its sock pupetting accompanying rabble comments made by those who hide behind cowardly anonymity, are a different kettle of fish. It’s easy to hide your identity and avoid scrutiny if you are semi-technical and know a few tricks and the network is not designed to capture enough information.

I've enjoyed being a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia, as well as band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band. My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel and later in life at Machon L'Hora'ah, Yeshivas Halichos Olam.
