Parent topics

  • Everything - Conventional use of the terms public and private is ordinarily exhaustive. Any thing may be said to be either public or private. Reading Citizendium, "a Citizen's Compendium of everything", for example, is a public act since access is open and anyone can do it. Discussing what one has read may be either public or private (or both), depending on the circumstances. However, authoring and editing articles, are public acts in two additional senses because authors and editors must identify themselves by their real names (cannot remain private and anonymous) and must meet established published (and therefore public) criteria for expertise in their areas of interest.
  • Public or Private - The dichotomy of public or private is typically used exhaustively: Everything is either public or private; there are no intermediate options or alternatives.
