KDE Identity? Whoa whoa, no thanks

Wed May 15, 2019 2:02 am
What's all this "identity" stuff? Like most people here, I just used a standard screen name, and a typical anonymous email. So what exactly are you wanting to know about my "identity"? I view this as a big strike against you, and it certainly goes against the linux spirit. That of high levels of privacy and security. If its not intended to be that way, then I'm afraid you've named it wrong. "Identity" is certainly sensitive issue these days. Just my $0.02

Im generally against KDE and its developers, but as far as identity is concerned, I cannot see what's troubling you so much. Many projects (not necessarily OSS/GPL based) has word identity sewn somewhere within their ecosystems and no-one makes a fuss about it. So shouldn't you also.

I mean - its nothing bad to use word identity simple because it fits perfectly here. On the other hand I understand where you're coming from also - you mean identity as an official one like name, surname, mail address and other data that make you identifiable. Taken this into account, your points are valid. But not here Im afraid.

Really it's just talking about facilitating collaboration within the KDE community by using a common username+password across various KDE-related sites. The identity is just referring to identifying you as a contributor to the KDE community (through your forum posts and other interactions in KDE-related sites). There's nothing nefarious going on and it's not like they're out to steal your private information using it.
