Policy 4 Anonymity of Personnel

Issued 4 July 2013

There are several reasons History personnel may wish to be anonymous with respect to the outside world:
  1. It is possible that History personnel could be attacked for their connection to The History. This should be prevented by all reasonable means.
  2. It is possible that History personnel could become targets for bribery or blackmail in order to influence them in the conduct of their duties.
  3. It is possible that History personnel could be refused cooperation from the Independent Field because of "politics" if their identities were known.

Thus, each administrator must decide whether he wishes to be anonymous, though it is understood that such anonymity is not be feasible within the History itself.

As an administrator or personnel, you are obligated, even if you leave the history or are removed, to honor the anonymity wishes of other administrators.
