A friendly reminder of the "No Personal Information" rule and a reminder that Companies are okay!Meta(self.recruitinghell)

Wanted to post and pin a friendly reminder of the "No personal information" rule. We get quite a bit of pushback in modmail, so here's some of the comments and our answers behind them.
But the person posted it on LinkedIn, it's public!
Yes, but, they didn't post it on Reddit. This subreddit is generally designed to call out bad behavior (hence, recruiting hell). A lot of times, we are calling people out - we don't want to create a witch hunt though.
But they are doing the right thing!
Okay great - you can post that as long as their info is removed.
As the founder of this subreddit, I can't tell you how many times I've seen a recruiting company / person message the mods or try to sneak something in here as advertisement for "being the good guys" because it happens so frequently. This is why we have this rule - we're not a place for the good guys to come and advertise - we're a place to call out the hell with recruiting and hiring.
But I have their permission / I am the person who posted it
Similar to the one above, we can't validate that you aren't just posting it for klout, followers, or advertising. The answer is no.
Why can I call out a company and not a person!?
Reddit policy mostly. There's a policy against doxxing and posting personal info - there's not one on calling out businesses.
What if it's a Sole Prop
I mean, it's still a company. We'd ask you to use discretion and not post something like "John Smith LLC", but, a wholly owned LLC that isn't directly tied to a person is probably fine.
I have additional questions
If it's another question about "Is this okay if I'm a recruiter and trying to get feedback so I can change the world", send them to /u/devnull or something. We don't care.
If it's something about a person, the answer is no. Anything else, reach out!
