As will surprise nobody, Mark Diaz Truman continues to receive abuse for calling out some broken stairs and harassment in the Indie game community. The project of pressuring Mark to abandon his principles is aided and abetted by the fact that for some reason nobody in that community ever asks for evidence to back up accusations.
Lots of folks are whaling on me--of course--but I saw some collateral damage in one public thread and if we don't provide facts we're no better than they are.
So: you can see some pretty harrowing accusations here against James Raggi, publisher of Lamentations of the Flame Princess.
So, the evidence: The threads the accuser is referring to are here (you gotta be in James' circles to read it) and here. You can judge for yourself.
If you want to support James during these trying times, you can get something cool at the LotFP store.
Edit Aug 2, 6:03 pm Pacific Time:
I got 2 reports in the last hour about the person who harassed James quitting G+. The second one suggested James' harasser had received some kind of threat from some other harasser.
Obviously: do not do that, don't send threats of any kind to people. Do this instead.
