@Phoenician, since you didn’t cite me, I’ll fill it in. You quoted a portiong of my comment:Inevitably, someone has asked “So just what happened”, even though it’s glaringly obvious that the post was written to focus on how to report harassment. Period.And you then said:That ceased to be true of the thread the moment the name of the editor accused of harassment was given out.It has never ceased to be true of the post. What happens in the thread does not change the post, no matter how much attempted derailment takes place. By the same token, the presence of trolls in a thread does not turn a post into an accusation, or a deposition, or a giant green weasel for that matter.I’ll confess that my little antennae are all a-quiver, wanting juicy, gory details. Fortunately, I’m able to read the post and observe that those juicy, gory details were deliberately left out. I suspect that it was for two reasons: to keep the post focused on how to report harassment, and to make derailment a little more difficult. Potential derailers will have to make up excuses instead of finding them textually.Yeah, I’d love me some juicy details. I’d also love a piece of chocolate the size of my head. I am entitled to neither, and I’m not counting on getting either.
