What should I do when I come across PII in a post?
Sometimes, posts can accidentally contain personal information that shouldn't be out on the internet, such as real names, real IP addresses, home addresses, or other pieces of PII (Personally Identifiable Information).

As a user, I can edit the post to remove it (or suggest an edit), but even then, the information can still be found in the revision history.

What can I do if I come across PII in a post to hide it from view?
