Here's one that made me somewhat less concerned about privacy issues of those users. I mean - these bounty hunters are used to whoring out their personal details (real or fake) so they probably don't see it as a problem at all. And yes, I edited personal info out. The original contains actual data.

I have always hated those signature campaigns that require your real phone number. There's a lot of sig campaigns lately that require that you join their Telegram community, which means you are going to need a real phone number for that.

I remember I participated in the past in some campaigns that required phone verification to join a website but just used one of those online SMS numbers. Too many scammers on this forum. I feel bad for those that are legit, but it's difficult to trust people, too many backstabbers and scammers.

As far as actually believing theymos would request KYC on the forum and posting your actual selfie, if anything that is a basic IQ test for the people on this forum. Not even IQ test just common sense. I mean theymos is still using this ancient javascript-off-friendly layout to support pro-privacy people. Lol at anyone that thought he wanted KYC.

People are free to do what they want, and if they do not value their privacy, I don't see any problem with them posting actual pictures of themselves.

This could actually be a way to locate alts of some of the dumb signature spammers. When I saw nyoach post his picture, I thought the guy on the right looked familiar, but I couldn't find him on the 1st 16 pages of the KYC selfie thread, although there are a lot of image proxy errors, and the pictures posted by newbies no longer appears in the thread.

How determine which photo is real? If matching with social media it doesn't really mean that that's their own photo. I believe most of user was aware about April fool especially whoever active in meta section. However I don't think we should have take it seriously for future investigation or something else. Everyone is mature here and fully aware that they are posting image on public place. I don't think it will be much harmful for them. However, it would be better if they delete their photo by themselves. Since you already made this post so everyone should understand regarding April fool of last day.

Most of the people supplying real pics probably have little or nothing worth protecting. That’s the only way I can comprehend somebody being so retarded. This place is full of hackers, scammers & untrustworthy bastards. Supply real life info at your own peril.
Sure, there are people that don't know if it's a joke or not nor taking too serious especially it came from Theymos. In return, they just post their photo impulsively without taking the thought it's April fool's joke and just want to comply with the new rule. It's lame tbh, that there are people like this that need more time to comprehend such information before they realize that it was nothing but a prank.

The KYC thread started by theymos this morning is a real hoot.  But, I'm concerned about the security of those who are actually posting real selfies in that thread.  Some of these photos can be reverse image searched on google and lead to real social media profiles.  People are either posting their real selfies, or posting photos of other people which is even more concerning. 

I haven't looked through that thread as it's too long, but if people are willingly posting their real data publicly then there's probably not that much you can do about that. Most people that do probably don't care, though. I know people should be careful with what they post online, but us bitcoiners seem to be extra careful, but for the vast majority of people they're seemingly happy to have public Instagrams and accept any facebook friends request they get and so forth.

I have always hated those signature campaigns that require your real phone number. There's a lot of sig campaigns lately that require that you join their Telegram community, which means you are going to need a real phone number for that.

You can just use a throwaway pay as you go sim. It's probably a good idea to have one because there are many other sites that require them that you may not want to give your personal number to. I know most email providers now require a phone number so you'll probably need one even if you want to create a throwaway address with them. I don't think telegram displays your hone number to others either. I also believe you can use telegram on your computer like skype and so on.

I reported one selfie to the mods and I wrote in the comment to mark it with good if we should report such posts or bad in case is no needed.
Guess what, I got a bad report. So selfies not should be reported. If it's a copy of pass or ID card/driving licence that should be fine to report.

It's far worse than that. People are completely happy to give away all their personal data to companies like Facebook, Google and Apple, but it gets even worse in the crypto space. People are not only willing to give away all their details, but also to upload documents, passports, selfies, selfies holding said documents or passport, etc. in exchange for an airdrop or bounty campaign for some token that is quite literally worthless, or for some 2 bit exchange filled with fake volume just waiting to exit scam. Quite literally everything someone needs to steal their entire identity (financial, tax, credit, medical, criminal, social security, etc.), and people are willing to send it all to a complete stranger. It boggles the mind.

I've never been asked for a selfie -- it's usually just a passport or drivers license scan -- and wouldn't send a selfie in even if they did, but some sort of basic verification is going to be a must really and a necessary evil to use most legally-complying sites. Unless you're someone with satoshi-level anonymity and sell or trade your coins regularly you're probably going to have to use some sort of exchange or banking system that requires a lot of your personal details -- unless you meet face to face and sell coins for cash and so forth. I guess the irony is that it's the average every day joe that complies with KYC and everything else that isn't going to be the criminal or fraudster using their service in the first place and actual criminals will just find a way around it any way.

Beside this, there's also one alarming problem which is there are some people making fun of the real selfies of other member,  maybe some members will start quoting the real selfie in various thread related to the April Fool's activity of the forum. That kind of problem can be also considered as discrimination, coz someone is making fun on the selfie or judging them by the looks.

Well there is nothing wrong for that since the user has done nothing wrong unlike other users mostly found in marketplace that are doing scams and fraud. I will just hope that theymos will draw a sword on that section and regulate posting or launched KYC in that area. LOL!

BTW, does that user a victim of april fools? or was the April fools being a victim of that user? I can sense he has a good sense!

Conpanies like Facebook, apple and google have reputations to maintain and if they give out your personal information in ways you have not agreed to they will suffer financially. The information provided to them, in theory also gives you a benefit as their services will be tailored to you.

The people running ICOs often have little to no reputation and will probably have little consequences if they give out information they shouldn’t. I would not be surprised if many of the people behind the ICOs who require KYC end up selling personal information of their customers. This is one reason why using a third party platform can be beneficial for everyone involved when a company wants to raise money.

If you spot a real image, maybe just send a PM to the user with a small warning to change / delete the link to the image.
Actually when reading the thread replies all the images are a meme or jokes. I posted an image of Da Vinci and some of the thread replies is an image of pets, animes and cartoons. If you are reading and you are following the discussion then you should take your risk because you need to take care of yourselves and need privacies.

Welcome to the internet buddy

good job pulling the "discrimination" card because some indian posted a 240p picture of himself.. Lmao. Please look up the definition of said word.
People are responsible for their own actions, no one forced them to post that shit. Besides, they can still remove it if they want..

Stop being such a virtue signaller for a nonexistent problem.

Conpanies like Facebook, apple and google have reputations to maintain and if they give out your personal information in ways you have not agreed to they will suffer financially.
No they won't. Facebook gave millions of users' data to Cambridge Analytica. They were fined $500,000, which is chump change to Facebook. Google Plus revealed that 438 different third party apps had unauthorized access to your data. No punishment. Similarly, Apple have plenty of third party apps which sell your data. No punishment. And that's only if you think that these companies aren't selling your data themselves, which I find very difficult to believe.

Smiley if you are able to track back their image (facebook e.g): they have accepted to share their personal image.
you can make the same just watching out casual profile on facebook: Name+Surname+Photos (probably a lot of selfies).
I can't see any difference to post even here on forum Smiley

If you spot a real image, maybe just send a PM to the user with a small warning to change / delete the link to the image.

I would understand this if the photo would contain an id along with the selfie but a simple photo...

Probably most of them have deleted the photos after realizing it was a joke or some have been removed but I would have bet that at least 9/10 out of those who have shared their pic have also posted their fb/tw/instagram whatever link here with all their pics, location and probably a lot more details.

As theymos said, you simply can't help some people...

Oh, and adjusting the tinfoil hat:
Don't you think that there are already some bots scrapping the bounty section and collecting all those profiles and usernames?  Roll Eyes

@stompix
Big part of them didn't knew that 1st of April is  international fools' day. They just don't follow our tradition. For me its the same I don't know when is the Chinese New year for example.

I agree that it might be not a big deal for them, but this is in contrary of what bitcoin stands for- anonymity. I think we have to show those people what they are risking, because they have no idea what could possibly go wrong.
