Former Niagara Region employee Greg Miller had no idea that he was putting his job on the line when he engaged in online comments as NiagaraNext and expressed his opinions about everything including politics in the Niagara area.
It’s been a couple of months since Miller, who worked for four years as a co-ordinator of Niagara Region Transit, lost his job after posting comments some folks didn’t like and Bullet News Niagara revealed to the Regional Chair the personal e-mail and Internet protocol Miller used to post comments on the media outlet’s website.
Even though Niagara Falls Regional Councillor Bob Gale, is the one who bankrolled the launch of Bullet News Niagara, he said he had no prior knowledge of the web-based news outlet’s decision to give out the information that led to the outing of NiagaraNext.
The result of the information leak? Miller’s “anonymous” online identity became public.
I got a chance to sit down with Miller to see where things are at now.
What do you think? When you post anonymously online do you think that you anonimity should be respected? (Original Interview August 25, 2015)
