I see what you mean, like “doxxing”? But I’m literally just listing the list of people “this fan’s list”, as I cited in the article. The NY Times article group was basically pared down from that. As far as I know, none of them protested the association — rather they all capitalized it. The only person who opted out was Alice Dreger. Everyone else was welcome too, but I think they capitalized on the “IDW” banner instead. Tim Ferris was never realistically part of the IDW, but was just in the fan list, and I touch on him later, that he’s not really guilty of anything, but just not a serious intellectual.
