1/ Many disconcerting things here:
1. That third-party/media reporting may be more effective and trustworthy than university HR or TIX offices;
2. That cautionary whisper networks may have some degree of selection bias on who is or is not informed about whom to avoid; 2/ 3. The use of “x told y person within z amount of time” as proof of the veracity or plausibility of harassment claims (not all cases have this, but those cases are still equally valid);
4. That double-digit victim numbers seems to be critical mass for “university response;”
