So, according to Rebecca Watson, this is the sort of "confrontation" that should have someone banned from a conference:
(quoting from original Pit)
gender traitors international
June 28, 10:16 pm
The evening of 9 July, I will be attending “a private meet-and-greet with Steve Novella, Bob Novella, Jay Novella, Rebecca Watson, and Evan Bernstein from “The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe.” Come join us for some light refreshments, get your picture taken with the hosts of SGU, ask them that question that you’ve always been dying to ask, or just hang out with like-minded folks who are also interested in all things skeptic and science.”
Any requests? I’d be more than happy to give Beccie a letter from the slimepit, and/or just leave her a card, and yes, I will be wearing an ERV – Gender Traitor badge.
Plus I think I shall make a Gender Traitors International badge as well.
I should have business cards with gender traitors international, and my name to hand out…

By the by, Mykeru, if you're looking for more on the doxxing of @ElevatorGate, you can find Sulky Amy's proxy here
As you may have already seen from his Tumblr blog, 3 of his posts were DMCA'd by Amy
. These DMCA claims were filled on July 25th, July 30th, and August 9th, but he didn't actually notice until August 17th, a few days after GirlWritesWhat posted the video about the DMCA's against her
. Around the time, as people were brainstorming ways for GWW to make a counter-claim without having to expose her personal information, [feminists have done some nasty stuff to gender-traitors like her before...] someone suggested this fellow
. GWW did something else, but when EG got DMCA'd, I began PM'd him for a bit [I don't think he'll mind it being mentioned, it's nothing exceptional] and suggested that he try that fellow out. He told me he would counter-claim on his own, and I left it alone. I never quite asked him why. It was by the next day, I believe, that I caught word that he was being doxxed by the idiot linked above.TL;DR:
- Sulky Amy DMCA'd @ElevatorGate thrice between July 25th and August 9th
- @ElevatorGate noticed on August 17th, at which point he either counter-claimed on the same night or the following day.
- By the 18th, Sulky Amy's proxy was created, and began doxxing @ElevatorGate.
So, is the the guy they DMCA the guy who apparently tweeted something rape-y? Hard to know what that was as Rebecca's definition of confrontational, as we see above, is creative. Any screen caps of that tweet? Is this the guy they got fired?
I'm interested in the sequence because I suspect that, based on their standard operating procedure:
The DMCAing preceded the tweet in question. That is, he was doxed for his criticism of Rebecca Watson. A later paranoid interpretation of a tweet became the post hoc rationale. Although they claim he was fired for his tweet, more likely he was fired because Rebecca and her friends (she admits to pissing off tweeters, banning them and letting her minions do the work) did a Justin Vacula on him.
If someone can give me a sense of what was said when by whom, and explain it to me like I'm an idiot, it would be appreciated.
