Unplesantly Surprised

I came up here tonight to get some more work done on the outline. So far no go.

I just spent about two hours reading up on someone who I ‘knew’ online (I had been involved in online discussions with them). This person has done some amazing things, many of which I greatly enjoyed. One particular area of interest of mine has been changed forever (for the good) by this person’s work.

Sometime when I wasn’t looking they went from well respected to convicted sex offender. I really wasn’t sure how I felt about that. I don’t, as a rule, trust the media to provide enough ‘truth’ to go on, so I just wasn’t sure what to believe. I’ve spent my time since then reading up on what level of truth I could get from posts made by people who know this person personally and people who knew the victims, as well as people who just showed up with their opinions.

I still don’t know how I feel.

I’m sorry this is so vague. The person in question has already had their life ruined. I don’t even know what to say about the victims. The point is, if you don’t know, you don’t need to know. I wish I didn’t (maybe).
