I haven't seen anything by anyone else. But regardless, this is still an incredibly dangerous way to approach things.

How long before some guy's already-abusive partner turns around and accuses him of something terrible? How many people have to lose their livelihoods based on false or exaggerated allegations before we remember, hey, things like burdens of proof exist for a reason?

I mean, do we not remember when reddit fingered a family's dead kid as the Boston Marathon bomber?
