While each person is obviously free to post whatever they want on this or any other Internet Board I do not think that implies an obligation on the part of anyone who posts anything to present information that for whatever reason they feel should not be posted. What information is shared, with whom, and whether publicly or privately is something that each person should decide for himself or herself. Even if these are solely commercial transactions, which personally I don’t think is always the case, one of the elements of the transaction is the agreements each party makes concerning the disclosures of information about the transaction. While there may not even have been a specific explicit agreement, the client assumes that the provider will not discuss their experience with a client in just about every context in a manner which would compromise the clients confidentiality. There is no reason that other such agreements cannot be made as well. There is no reason that a provider cannot request that certain information not be made available publicly, and I would expect that if such a request were made and agreed to that it would be kept. If you prefer to retain the right to publish your experience without limitation that is your right. I would expect though that if you were to be asked to refrain from publishing information that you would decline to do so - even though that might mean that a specific provider might not see you. On the other hand, if you or any other potential client only want to see providers about whom you are able to find published information, providers who chose to ask that information not be published would potentially be limiting the people who might be interested in meeting with them. So even from an objective commercial perspective there is no obligation to present every detail publicly, indeed doing so may explicitly violate one of the terms of the agreement. Beyond that I personally feel that it is appropriate to be considerate and responsible. Even though there is a commercial element in these relationships there is also a personal one as well. Indeed when we sense that a provider has depersonalized the experience too much, we don't like it, and will say things like mechanical or did not really seem to be into what they were doing. So if we want to encourage the women we are with to put more of themselves into the time they spend with us, it seems to make sense that we relate to them as people and not machines. Which just means being sensitive. I value the information that I am able to obtain from this board. And I recognize that the information is available because people choose to share it. So this is not intended to imply that people should not share information. I do think however that the responsibility to be an active participant on the board should be weighed against the responsibility one might have to the provider, and that in all cases it is desirable to be honest and sensitive.
