Wait, what happened? I'll give the podcast a listen at some point, but is there a summary I can read in the mean time? The description of the podcast is pretty vague. This is August Ames, right? (edit: I mean related to darkpriest specifically. I know about Ames suicide, and the couple days events that lead up to it.)

I haven't thought about darkpriest in years, since my post above, honestly.

Overall it sounds like the internet dogpile on Ames, while unpleasant, was likely not entirely to blame and that darkpriest's personality may have inadvertently amplified some of Ames's problems that led to her choosing to end her life.

I'm through six of the seven 30-minute episodes and so far DP's recollections of events and conversations do not entirely line up with what other people remember, though these are generally 1:1 comparisons so it's challenging to determine who's correct. However, there have so far been a couple of events where there are three people remembering things, and DP's account is at odds with the other two. DP also makes a number of claims that are impossible to verify but which paint him in a better light if you accept them. Both DP and one of his friends in the entertainment industry complain about how fake everyone there is and how they're all liars in that business, which invites the question: why should we attach any special import to your words, then? The journalist doing the cast gets a little too hung up on one detail in particular (the hotel room) though ultimately determined that DP's account was consistent with recorded facts about halfway through episode 6. The caster also noted a couple of instances of DP trying to play him off against his producer during interviews and conversations, as well as DP coaching some interviewees before the caster talked to them, which doesn't do a lot to enhance DP's credibility.

It's amazing because without that happening there's a very real chance that dozens of people on SA like me wouldn't be aware of the massive amount of evidence that points towards Zak S making GBS threads his pants at a Chik Fil A at Gencon.

I mean, there's a kernel of truth in every joke, right? It's possible to intend things two different ways at once. As an emotionally dead American male, I'd probably find some idiot rolling around with his dick out like it's no big deal pretty funny--but as gags go it's undeniably, uh, intrusive, and there's 100% a power element to literally waving your dick in people's faces.

It's maybe funny in the abstract or when you see a video or picture of it happening but some dude walking around with his cock out is always hosed up when it happens to you in real life. Full stop.

how did this dude keep getting himself into other peoples rooms anyway

If it's a party at a greek house or off-campus residence interior doors likely don't autolock and may be set up to prevent lockout so they can only be locked from the inside. Plus the unconscious person may have been helped to the room by someone who was be half in the bag themselves and might not think to engage the lock on the way out.

Both the people in that image have repeatedly demonstrated that they're entirely hosed in the head so yes, Bundy is an apt comparison.

But in Hollywood stuff, there is a sense of you being lucky to be there at all and I think that really exasperates the tyrannical attitude at all levels. And it just seems all more ingrained. Video games and music probably have a similar problem.

I have worked in a vaguely similar "prestige" business and yeah, the whole "working here is soooooo awesome we know we can treat you like poo poo" attitude you get from managers and their hypnotized thralls is sickening.

It’s kinda like James Franco, a piece of poo poo I think about a lot. He’s had people telling him that’s he’s a brilliant and talented artist since he was, like, 14… and that’s how you end up with a guy in his early 30’s opening an “acting college” and getting sued by the students because he tried to get them to blow him during improv class.

Gallo's method is not accepted as a valid performance technique but seems like it has a lot of adherents trying to push it mainstream.

Is "not asking about teens being drugged and raped by a creepy fuckface trying to play the victim" not an option?

RAW if it's a specified category ask and you draw it you're supposed to ask it regardless of circumstances but every game I've played the house rule has been you can burn a card if you don't like the question for any reason. If it's dealer's choice of question you can pick anything on the card and skip the gross one. I'd probably just pitch that whole card in the trash to be honest.

It's an eye roll when they describe a celebrity that we've seen a gazillion times before and there's probably also a picture of them right there on the facing page if you somehow forgot what Angelina Jolie looked like. The promotional thing is silly but sometimes is a condition of getting the interview or publishing the syndicated thing so I can see how it gets in there.

You are correct that diagnosing someone without meeting with them personally is something that ethics boards do not allow. However the psych from Depp's team spent something like 10 hours with Heard to complete the evaluation.

Still not that long a time when it comes to a personality disorder diagnosis for actual treatment purposes, but definitely enough time for a trained professional to get the lay of the land.

Expert witnesses are a whole other area of medical adjacent stuff; I was on a jury a couple of months ago and we had expert witnesses from both sides, one of whom offered an evaluation based on file reviews only. It certainly can impact credibility, but in my case we decided in favor of the side whose expert witness didn't actually see the patient.
