Topic of the Week

This week’s topic is in regards to the Brianna Wu incident. Should proper citation/evidence be given when game developers (or anyone for that matter) are harassed online? Should people take the harassment claims at face value? How many of these cases are a “boy who cried wolf” scenario? How easy is it for someone with an agenda to falsify harassment to further their claims/platform?
