What I'm saying is that public shitstorming is unacceptable, and if that 
happens frequently from one particular group, being it feminists or LGBT, it is 
hurting everyone, but especially the group which starts the shitstorm. More so, 
if the rumor turns out to be false later - you can't fully undo the damage to 
the falsely accused, and there will be additional damage for spreading false 

Spreading unverifyable rumors and accusations is not a fair process. If you 
want to be treated fair, treat others fair, as well. Our community here is 
based on ethical grounds, and reciprocity is an important part of it. 
Responding to evil with evil however is wrong. Respond to evil with justice, 
and that includes a lot of formal rules, which have been made on purpose.
