Re: [tor-talk] Tor and solidarity against online harassment

I've been watching the harassment for some months now and I'm glad to see the organization finally steped up. It's a reputation attack on the organization, but the full brunt of it has fallen on one dev. 

The primary motivation for the attacks was to discredit Tor with inept concern trolling. That expanded to personal harrassment of one dev, chosen because of her work on Tor, because she is a woman, and because she was accessable. The ring leaders are journalists for a popular news outlet, supported by a mob of #gamergate-like MRA conspiracy fascists.
