I agree that this privacy issue is concerning, but considering the state of internet polarization and hostility these days, calling it a minor issue seems somewhere between a deliberate lie and a state of laughable naiveté.

There's a reason we have words like doxxing and swatting. These things happened often enough we had to name them. I've known women who have had guys track them down IRL to harass them when they didn't get satisfaction from their online trollery. I've seen reddit mods go from popular staples of the community to having to scrub their entire social media presence over a weekend because their grandparents were receiving death threats.
