“Men to Avoid”
The list she published had no evidence and was created through crowd sourcing. What a dumb decision.

Student faces expulsion after publishing evidence-free list of alleged campus sexual assaulters
A student at Middlebury College says she’s facing expulsion after publishing a crowd-sourced list of reputed sexual assaulters under the banner of “Men to Avoid.”
The list, posted to Facebook in December under the “friends of friends” privacy setting, offered no evidence to back claims that included emotional abuse, sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape by students at the Vermont private college.
Middlebury senior Elizabeth Dunn posted the list in order to “move toward a conversation” about sexual assault that was inspired by the #MeToo movement, she told Vermont alternative weekly Seven Days.
While the post originally began as a lone accusation against a man who had allegedly assaulted Dunn several years earlier, Dunn invited readers to “dm [direct message] me more names to add to this status.”
“The messages just started pouring in,” she told Seven Days. “There’s just a lot of collective pain and trauma that people have experienced here” at Middlebury, she added.
