This is a perfect example of what happens to people that criticize established orthodoxy in the Freethoughtblogs world. A member of the community discredited certain aspects of the Elevatorgate story by doing the unspeakable - verifying the claimed "facts". This is the response from PZ Myers and Greg Laden - they promote shunning by implying of psychological instability or insanity (or the secular equivalent of witchcraft or possession), thereby dehumanizing and discrediting them. This is another preferred method for community members that are female - where conventional abuse reserved for males is deemed inappropriate. As per usual FTB tactics, not one single factual counterpoint was offered - only personally directed slander.
