Voat strictly prohibits all doxing (posting of personally identifiable information) of a Voat user

The Doxxing rule only applies to other voaters. Not to politician's associates. You'd only get in trouble if you said @ILoveKids is John Podesta and here is his phone number. Just posting Podesta's number wouldn't break the rules.

I don't think it should be restricted to voat. We all know what doxxing is, divulging the IRL data of internet characters. IDK how to put it in words, but we should not reveal the identity and personal data of people who didn't provide said data.

"Hey guys, Hillary's committee's phone is xxxxxxx" is OK.

"Hey guys, Buckethead is John Doe, and he lives at xxxx" is not OK, unless he published this info himself.

"Hey guys, reddit user pliftploft is Jane McFeebles, phone xxxxx" is not OK.

"Hey guys, tumblerina UnicornsAreReal is Barbie Blunt, you know what to do" is not OK.

That's a pretty fuzzy line. Restricting it Voat users us safer from the freedom perspective

The doxxing rule should only be applied when targeting another Voat user.
Reddit mods are constantly removing comments under the guise of doxxing even when it's targeted at a public figure.
Why should we give a fuck about Reddit users? If somebody has the info of a nazi mod on Reddit I say fuck em.
At any rate there would be no gray area. Voat users NOT OK, anybody else OK.

What if the information was put together over a series of posts they made. Such a post where they revAL where their from another separate one with their name and last one with a phone number.

Is it doxxing if you put together what they already said?
