@christmaspathianflorist, do you confirm or deny that you a fedboi?
If you are reading this post, it means I doxxed you, your family and your dog and have a wall full of your most embarassing pictures.
But don't worry! I'm a very, very forgiving man and I will tell you step-by-step on how to protect yourself in the future so this doesn't happen again.
(nice cock btw, king. it has a nice girth)
1. STOP REUSING YOUR USERNAME EVERYWHERE
Like, I get it. You want to be e-famous and get some well-know-guy cred on the internet. But this isn't real life.
If you keep reusing the same username over and over it'll just make it easier for people to follow the breadcrumbs and find some info on you. If you NEED to reuse it for some reason, do it 2 or 3 times and look for a new one.
How? Simple. Go to your favorite site/blog/forum/channel, find a name you like and steal it. Or, if you're creative, make your own from scratch. But for the love of Allah (SWT), don't make it a obvious joke linking to your previous usernames.
Use this website if you're having trouble.
2. STOP USING ONE E-MAIL FOR EVERYTHING.
Now, that doesn't mean you should transfer all your stuff to these providers, but at least create two new e-mails: one for shitposting (that you don't mind losing for whatever reason) and one for the other embarassing stuff you do online (and yes, I know you spend $700/month in OnlyFans subscriptions.)
And, much like step 1, don't fucking reuse a previous email adress. Be creative. Nobody will ever ask for those e-mails, so you don't need to make it family friendly.
3. USE SOME SORT OF VPN
We all know in this day and age how abundant IP-logging is. So don't be a dunce and shell out some shekels so you can be at least a little safer.
Also don't be a idiot. Using a VPN doesn't mean you can starting buying illegal shit from the internet. If you need to ask how you do it, you probably shoudn't, newfriend.

4. START MAKING STUFF UP ABOUT YOURSELF.
This one is kinda obvious. As times passes and you get more confident/comfortable, you'll start to soft doxx yourself to other users. Maybe you'll say where you were born (neighbourhood/city/state*), maybe your real name. Hell, sometimes you can get doxxed just by telling you were in a event/building at a certain time.
So, knowing that someone will be looking for these kinds of info, start releasing misinfo about yourself. Maybe you know stuff about another region/state that only locals know, so you can throw small tidbits about it everywhere to make it harder to pinpoint where are you from. Or you know a second (or third) language, which can make it very easy to LARP as an mutt/foreigner.
I don't know, be creative. Just don't forget to lie.
* I'm not considering countries because a) most users here are burgercels or *nglos and b) if you're from an irrelevant country, doxxing you means the person needs to know at least a little about your mothertongue, which is (somewhat) unlikely.
5. SEPARATE YOUR PERSONAL STUFF FROM YOUR INTERNET PERSONA
I don't think I need to tell you this, but don't use your real name and other IRL stuff on a place like this.
Don't use your personal/work e-mail to join random Zoom calls. Don't use your g*ming Discord account to shitpost with your fellow Dramachads there. Don't post your other social media (why would you have those in the first place? ) here unless you want people to look at every message you've ever posted.
While the people here can be friendly (lol), you don't need an account to see someone's comments, do you? A lurker can be collecting your stuff without you even knowing. So be smart and don't mix your stuff.
6. STOP CLICKING RANDOM LINKS
Seriously, how new are you? You should NEVER click a link from someone you don't know. It's like Internet 101.
If you're wary about something someone sent you, hover over the link (or hold and click if you're a phonecel) and see if it matches/is from somewhere you can trust.
Congratulations, you have now finished your training. You're now a proud Dramachad that isn't afraid of no doxx.
But remember, <<<they>>> are always watching.

And they making bank. Some artist can easily make six figures/year on Patreon/SubscribeStar/etc. just by drawing stuff and accepting commissions. The thing is, most of them keep it under a paywall to force the degenerate paypigs to open up their wallets.
That's where Kemono.party comes in.
Kemono.party is a website dedicated to scraping paywalled content. Recently, they decided to create a Twitter account.
Their account basically just spammed/mentioned any artists they could find, telling that their paywalled content could be found on their site.
For those who are less familiar with the site, welcome! You can use it to access the paywalled posts of creators like @DiivesArt, @TheTwistedGrim, @Derpixon, @meru_nyaa, and @ThiccWithaQ (and thousands more!) in an organized and easy to search for way. Enjoy! (Source)
As you can imagine, this caused massive amounts of seethe.
This is literally, by definition, piracy. Why do you think it's paywalled? So they can actually make a living. Exposure doesn't pay the bills (Source)
Ah yes, lemme trust the shady people who pirate porn from artists with my personal information, this will go well. FBI has been contacted for failing to comply, good luck. (Source)
By "gods work" you mean robbing people from their hard work?.. sure. (Source)
But here's the best part. If you, an artist, wanted to remove your """"art"""" from the database, you'd need to issue a DMCA takedown. The things is, you need to basically doxx yourself to do so.
contact information of the copyright owner or an authorized agent (full name, mailing address, phone number, email)
There are more cool reactions, but you need to join the Telegram group to see them and I don't want to get groomed by furries.
