DOXXING – AN ONLINE TERROR TACTIC

“Doxxing is never okay, no matter how repugnant you believe the target might be.”

I agree.

Terrorizing an individual or their families through social media, by providing their addresses, telephone numbers etc.(called doxxing) online, that may encourage unstable individual(s) to commit crimes against that person and/or their families is unacceptable. It’s called terrorism.

Protesting in peaceful ways is the only way to effect positive, long-term change. Animal rights organizations need to disavow themselves from supporting terrorist tactics. Such tactics hurt the animals as well as negate all the accomplishments that peaceful activists have worked so hard to achieve.

We’ve come so far. Working to change hearts and minds is a slow process, but it is the only process – when executed in a multitude of ways – that will change their world and ours for the better.
