And i believe that is every thing. I really hope you’ve got a great time. 🙂

P.S. I do not have any FetLife users’ passwords; none associated with tools we composed saves or logs some of them, by design. (see the rule if you want to be double-dom yes.) BUT an email was got by me from the FetLife individual whom Susan Wright contacted whom told me that Susan Wright had changed her account’s password without her permission. (here is a PDF of this schedule of occasions once the individual shared them beside me [and in ordinary text].) Therefore this means, whenever FetLife staff informs you “Don’t ever give your FetLife password to anybody,” whatever they’re saying is, “because we will simply take it anyhow.” They were sent by me back once again this note:

If, while you claim, you’ve got not a problem with individuals exporting their very own FetLife content, then a business you represent will illustrate that if you take one or each of the next actions:

  • You shall announce the production of the function which provides FetLife users the capability to export their content. Because you can remember from our past communication, there clearly was open-source rule open to you that may provide you with a mind begin applying this particular aspect.
  • OR
  • Offered the continued lack of these an providing, you can expect to stop blocking the host hosted at from making connections to in order for users should be able to utilize the things I presently comprehend to function as the only hosted FetLife content export device offered to them.

The truth that that you do not provide Fetlife users the capability to get a grip on their content without simultaneously jeopardizing the privacy of other users has for ages been a known problem. I have advocated for increased inter-user privacy settings on the part of myself as well as other FetLife users for many years. These kinds of best-practice privacy choices are additionally among the list of earliest “Improvements” required by users in response to FetLife’s solicitation of function needs. amateurcommunity Please see the next if you want to recharge your memory:

Every one among these have already been “Suggested about 1 12 months ago”, yet FetLife has plumped for to focus on a number of other features, a lot of which degrade that is further individual’s privacy. It really is no real surprise if you ask me that lots of people consequently don’t feel safe utilizing FetLife while having wished to migrate, making use of their content, far from it.

You are entirely capable of making your own if you do not like the way the only currently available FetLife account backup tool works.

Meanwhile, about it, not me if you do not like what some users have chosen to do with their ability to export content, speak with THEM. The following is a questionnaire page you are welcome to circulate to FetLife Caretakers they are all really welcome to utilize:

Then you can remove this article through the host at if you’re certainly who owns the FetLife account making use of the nickname you are referencing at any time, and also you constantly had been. The video clip during the export web web web page describes just how to do that.

Being a rule that is general I’m not into the practice to do things for others that they’ll do on their own.

Furthermore, i will be maybe not within the practice of deleting files mainly because somebody claims to be their creator in certain random bit of e-mail . 😉

But, so, here is anything.

Yesterday evening, FetLife blocked the internet protocol address associated with the host, functionally blocking anybody from handling unique archive, including removing your capability to delete your archive your self. Maymay coded an ongoing work around to FetLife’s block and updated the Exporter to be able to still handle your own personal archive files, including delete them.

Please browse the update that is full:

(Archived at for future posterity.)

It bothers me personally great deal that FetLife would inform individuals to take action they then prevented those individuals from doing. Just exactly just What offers?

I really hope it will help, and I also hope you are going to hold FetLife’s foot towards the fire with this.

In the event that you encounter a mistake, please do let me know.

P.S. Please offer Susan Wright therefore the rest of the FetLife team my kindest regards. Here are a few links we’d love for you yourself to deliver their method:

P.P.S. Sorry concerning the kind page. as you’re able to imagine, i am working with plenty of e-mail out of the blue. 😉

I really hope you will elect to perform some thing that is right prioritize your users’ autonomy, security, and privacy over business’s revenue motive.
