None of those are relevant to *this* case. All you're saying is that sometimes people lie, so you won't believe anything unless you want to.

And for the record, I don't expect to convince you of anything. You're literally incapable of agreeing with me on that issue no matter what.

Report facts and give a list of verifiable sources. Don't expect people to believe that anonymous people told you what you wanted to hear.

It's terribly simple and they'd know it if they hadn't fallen down into the clickbait hellhole, but random internet comments often have better sourcing than stories from corporate media outlets.

The consensual sex only came to light because of the sexual harassment that Bill settled. Bill was disbarred for not telling the whole truth about having sex with underlings when they were discussing whether Bill expected to get sex from his interns as part of the discussion of whether he had created a hostile workplace.

But you would prefer to just ignore the women for whom it was non-consensual, right? Unlike this case, both sides had their day in court long ago. Bill settled it out of court after a number of adverse actions, including the one that got Bill disbarred.

Claiming you have proof is not the same as actually showing it to us. It's perfectly reasonable for us, who haven't seen these screenshots, to withhold judgement until either we see them or she wins the court case.

There's no prize for being the first person to judge someone. The word 'prejudice' literally means judging someone beforehand.

Why can't we wait for all the evidence to come out in court before we condemn someone or make up our minds? I will hold no position either way and will let the courts judge this. She can show the proof to them and they can judge this, there's no need for any of us to pre-judge this.

> Then again I really can't see how dumps could screw this up

Some dumpers added logos and other crap, others added trainers. Some just plain got a bad dump and screwed up some graphics which may or may not have any major impact on the game. Really, there are lots of stupid things that can go wrong. In the post I linked earlier, byuu describes some of the bad dumps he found.

Except for those arrest records from the DC Metropolitan Police Department for Conspiracy to Commit an Assault -

I did that in the very first post just up thread. Since you somehow missed that, here you go (again) -

> So what? Even if the evidence is right all it means is someone who is passionate about politics to work for a PAC is also passionate enough to engage in underhanded tactics.

Let me get this straight. It appears that you admit that they perform underhanded tactics. And that they're on video discussing the underhanded tactics. And that they were actually caught, on independent videos already linked. But you think the video is "out of context" despite it showing them doing the underhanded things they said they'd do?

> As I said, even if your evidence is true, it's irrelevant.

So what of the butyric acid thing, for which I can point you to actual, criminal arrests records that were the result of the DC police's investigation. How can that be "irrelevant"? We have them on video plotting that. And we have an arrest as a result of an independent police investigation.

What more do you want, exactly? A signed confession? You can only stick your head in the sand so far, man.

Relax, I'm not eager to do the things I hate.

I don't really think the gamergate thing was a "joke" either, but whatever, there certainly were a lot of lies in the media. And it's true that people don't respond to the 5 minute hates like they used to. The people using them as a means of social control are losing power and that terrifies them.

There's a bunch of evidence that corroborates it, unless you don't believe the FEC pay stubs or the independent YouTube videos of her lying to the cops?

You don't believe the DC police arrest records?

The evidence speaks for itself. I don't need to consider them credible.
