Documented Harassment Link Roundup (trigger warning!)

TRIGGER WARNING: Examples of Harassment

Whenever a blog post broaches the subjects of harassment or sexism within the atheist/skeptic community, there will inevitably be commenters demanding evidence, as if evidence had never been presented in a prior discussion.

Don't get me wrong; I don't think all of these demands are honest questions. Sometimes they are to silence a commenter or derail a discussion. However, I think there is a solution to dealing with both the honest and dishonest demands for evidence, and that is the point of this thread.

The Documented Harassment Link Roundup

I'd like to gather links to all of the publicly available examples of harassment within the atheist and skeptic community. Let me repeat: This thread is explicitly for publicly available, published information. My hope is that, in being able to link to a single thread that documents harassment in the atheist/skeptic community, we can prevent threads from being derailed when yet another demand for evidence appears.

Here's what I've got so far:


Edit: as links get posted, I'll add them to this list so that they are easier to find.

I'm adding Stephanie Zvan's latest blog post to this list. It documents some of the continued harassment Jen McCreight has received since she decided to stop blogging yesterday.

Finally (sorry for the delay) split this topic off from the derail that took it over. Carry on with your documenting!

Does Thunderf00t's blog entry calling Surly Amy a whining "victim" qualify as part of the harassment campaign?
