We have a very useful neighbourhood site called 'Nextdoor'. This is used to buy and sell, advertise social events, ask for recommendations for e.g. builders, gardeners etc etc. I have been on this now for around 5 years, but have used a pseudonym - like we do here on TES. The reason for this is that the site insists as part of it's rules that your street address is displayed on every post you put and on your accessible profile as well as your real name - which I feel is potentially unsafe. As this is a neighbourhood site, it would be easy for somebody to find you/your house if they really wanted to. Anyway, somebody has 'snitched' on me for using a pseudonym and the site have suspended me saying that the only way I can go back on is to use my real name. A bit pathetic in my mind. Anyway, my question is twofold: 1) Has anybody had experience of similar? 2) Does anybody know how their ruling fits in with data protection and good practice.
