I understand the concern about the material being stolen as such things unfortunately happen all the time with new systems that are developed. Other than this case however I don't really understand though why someone would sign up to a course and pay 100 Euros a month (which for some people including myself is quite a substantial amount) if he/she doesn't have at least the belief that the DIP will aid in the process of self-support. Why would anyone sign up and invest time and money just to "abuse" others? Unless you are talking about so-called "cult researchers" and the like, it doesn't really make sense to me what exactly you mean by this reference to "abusers". Also I don't understand how facebook can help prevent this. If someone wants to say something bad he can do that on facebook as well (just like through many other channels).Regulation from the perspective of assessing if a person is an actual human being that would utilize the the system for self support or whether the being is an abuser that is only interested in abusing the DIP system and the participants, the support structure and/or stealing the material for instance.
One's facebook profile gives a nice indication in terms of what the interests / tendencies are of the person, since what they Like,Share and Comment on is displayed on their page.
Obviously a person that posts such material has serious personal or social problems in their life. But wouldn't it be possible that this person wants to overcome these points and explore the deeper reasons for his addiction/attraction to such material? You sound as if you wouldn't permit such a person to sign up or at least that's how I understand you. But that might be rushing to a wrong conclusion about the persons motives and situation. Just my opinion.If for instance some has -- as an extreme example -- pornographic-like material on their facebook then we can take this into consideration when the person signs up.
Yes.A point to consider within this is thus also whether you are deliberately looking for/expecting secret agendas or flaws within the approach towards how the DIP registration-process is managed. Maya did for example mention previously in this discussion, that if you do not wish to use a Facebook profile, that this will be taken into consideration. So there is really no 'problem' - unless you are deliberately looking for one. So the point of reacting emotionally to this point indicates that you're not looking at the point in common sense, but based on personal experiences/back chat.
Hmh, very interesting thought Anna, thank you for this perspective. I am a person that does tend to be quite pessimistic at least when I'm thinking about starting something new. I do tend to rather expect the negative and the worst in the sense that I always put the spotlight on possible flaws or areas that could present what I perceive as "problems"; I don't do this deliberately, it's more of a sub-conscious thing.I suggest addressing these first in writing, in for example investigating if you within yourself have any 'hidden agendas' or fears meaning in terms of already 'expecting the worst' or having made your mind up.
I'm sorry, I must have missed that. I just saw it now when I looked through the comments again. Thanks for claryfing it again.Maya did for example mention previously in this discussion, that if you do not wish to use a Facebook profile, that this will be taken into consideration.
