In Trouble at the Koolaid Point Kathy Sierra talks about her experience with online harassment, and more recently, the degree to which people are willing to forgive and forget the past misdeeds of her harassers. She also talks about the wide variety of pernicious lies that have been told about her that have reached such wide circulation that she can’t really shake them, and how those lies have been used to justify her harassment. This stuff happens all the time, to all kinds of people, especially women and other members of underrepresented groups online.
