|Didn't answer my question, though, you would have no problem if I went to a large blog and wrote that someone told me that you raped them?|
That would be a lie.
If someone you knew and trusted had told you that I raped them, and it were plausible we had met, then you should believe them. If I had raped them, it doesn't really matter what I wanted, does it? Being called a rapist would be a consequence of my actions.
Also, the rape claim regarding Shermer doesn't exist in a bubble. There is more than that account.
And you didn't answer the question, did you?
It's a simple yes or no answer. Do you support people giving anonymous accounts naming people as convicted rapists? We are talking legalities here, and you do know that to claim someone has done something, to avoid the legal issues PZ is in, they have to be convicted, right?
However, let's ignore that. Do you think that I should go on a public blog and call you a rapist? Yes or no? Do I have that right? Is it legal, is it moral, is it the right thing to do?
Remember, evidence has nothing to do with it.
But, since you say all this is not in a vacuum, where is the evidence against Shermer? Please be sure to include the names of the accusers, possible dates, reports filed with the police - you know, evidence. All I here is hearsay. I have no evidence one way or another. All I see is a lot of people jumping on the bandwagon and repeating the same rumors (such as the "blacklist" these supposed SJWs passed amongst themselves but never passed out to anybody, for about a year, such was their concern for women).
