Lurid Lawsuit’s Quiet End Leaves Silicon Valley Start-Up Barely Dented - NYTimes.com
Ugh. Why are men the worst?

Lots of thoughts on this. Woman coming in to fix the broken company. Men who think they can do whatever until they get married. Ugh.

Stalking, actually: why men who reject rejection are not romantic heroes | Tauriq Moosa | Opinion | The Guardian
Rejection is painful, but that pain doesn’t give anyone licence to disregard another individual’s assertion of boundaries – which is what rejection is: a drawing of lines excluding us. People are allowed to draw up whatever boundaries they like in terms of who they wish to spend time with or date. As adults we should learn to accept this and move on. But men have long been taught to disregard boundaries, as any glance at statistics of street harassment demonstrates.

The Immortal Myths About Online Abuse – Humane Tech – Medium
After building online communities for two decades, we’ve learned how to fight abuse. It’s a solvable problem. We just have to stop repeating the same myths as excuses not to fix things.

Here are the 8 myths Anil Dash picks out:

1. False: You can’t fix abusive behavior online.

2. False: Fighting abuse hurts free speech!

3. False: Software can detect abuse using simple rules.

4. False: Most people say “abuse” when they just mean criticism.

5. False: We just need everybody to use their “real” name.

6. False: Just charge a dollar to comment and that’ll fix things.

7. False: You can call the cops! If it’s not illegal, it’s not harmful.

8. False: Abuse can be fixed without dedicated resources.

In 'Crash Override,' Zoe Quinn Shares Her Boss Battle Against Online Harassment : NPR
Much of Crash Override focuses on infrastructure, examining the systems that allow harassment to flourish. The architecture of the internet — and a legal system designed for the analog era — create an hugely cumbersome process for those trying to reclaim their lives after online attacks and doxxing.

Instead of advocating for stricter law-enforcement protocols — the usual approach — Quinn appeals for a process of restorative justice that would focus on "what the victims, community, and perpetrators need to be whole again." How do we change the infrastructure of online platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Reddit so that mobs can't gather steam in the same old ways? How do we restore a reputation that's been damaged? And how do we think about perpetrators, to discourage that type of behavior in the future?
