I have looked around and couldn't find anything concrete, so here goes. The dust hasn't settled over the forums, but I wanna know if we are doing anything, or if we should get started on a project to help out Lowtax's ex wife and daughter. As you are all aware, Lowtax has used his position to threaten his ex wife's immigration status as leverage to get control over his daughter. I feel that we as a community are partly responsible for their hardship, as we supported Lowtax to where he could be in a comfortable financial position to make their life miserable.

I know a couple of immigration lawyers who I could reach out for help, though they are not in the state of Missouri. Nevertheless, they could help steer her in the right direction.

Also, are we doing a fundraiser for them? This is something I could also help set up, but we would need to find a way to get in touch with them first to set them up as beneficiaries. Maybe Logan can help?

If efforts are already underway, please point me in the right direction so I can donate and help however I can. I grew up in an environment of domestic abuse similar to the one they went through, so this whole thing has been in the back of my mind for a week. The fact that they have been living in a shelter while Lowtax rides around in a GTR makes my blood boil, so I wanna do something.

The consensus in the Yikeseroo thread seems to be that us trying to fundraise for his wife and daughter can negatively impact her in regards to the legal process so that's why it's not being done. This includes from people who seem to be in real-life contact with her.

That's because our downstream reality reflects an upstream case but I'm going to violate it.

Maybe the forums should completely stay out of people's lives. Jfc, go volunteer or donate to RAINN you bored crazy people

Does that include legal help? Iím hoping she already has good legal counsel.

Wasn't Integral also Canadian?

Anyway I'd be down to donate, but I think a really good idea is going forward, with all avatar and other various forums purchases, at least half should go to RAINN.

A part of the forum's profits going to RAINN would be both immensely good and do a lot to put some trust back into active participation here.

Are there any threads anywhere that summarise what has happened with Lowtax? I am out of the loop.

Check the OP in the stickied Tax megathread.



Also yeah can we all stay out of the exes' lives? Because we're kinda way too much part of it already and it would be great to stop doing that?
I understand you have good intentions OP this is not aimed squarely at you.

It's only been a few years since you folks banded together to take down a poor woman's GoFundMe. I doubt she wants anything to do with this place.

Having any goons involved in their lives is a bad thing from a legal standpoint. We need to stay as far away as possible and find other ways to contribute, like through donations to charities.
