U. Washington Students Create Website for Anonymous Sexual Assault Accusations Against Men
“Make Them Scared UW”
This is clearly where the left wants to go now. They don’t believe in due process.

DEFAMATION? Website Names Men Anonymously Accused Of Sexual Assault
A website created by University of Washington students allows users to anonymously post the names of men who have allegedly committed sexual assault — an act that could land the site’s administrators in legal hot water.
The website, called “Make Them Scared UW,” does not vet the accusations posted to the website in any meaningful way, and some moderators told UW’s student newspaper, The Daily, they want more information from accusers. But the creators of the site certainly want to vilify men who may or may not have actually committed sexual assault, but say they designed the website to be another resource for accusers.
“Our goal is simple: we want to make the world a safer place for people vulnerable to sexual attacks, beginning with college campuses,” the moderators told The Daily. “We want to give victims a sense of justice and rest that other avenues deny them.”
These moderators also say they “verified each claim to the best of our ability, and have not published any claims which we believed to be false.” They also say that anyone whose name is published “inaccurately” can let them know so they “can remedy the situation.”

to the full extent allowed by law.
If so, there’s a Title IX lawsuit in the making.
Were I attending UW, I’d be encouraging men to file “anonymous” assault complaints against every female professor who looked at them funny. Flood the site with noise to disrupt the signal.
If someone IS assaulted, there are other, legitimate avenues to pursue. Anonymously naming (read: doxxing and shaming) a guy on a publicly-available website ain’t one of them.
OK, so are we now at the point where “we believed” is enough to cover one’s ass in a court of law? I think not.
