Frequently Asked Questions

This is a single FAQ from the MetaFilter FAQ.

Can I publicly mention details from someone else's profile page?

Generally, no. User profile pages on MetaFilter are not indexed by Google. This means if someone's profile says that they live in a certain city or gives their real name, that information is not considered "public" on the site. More details here.
