Bear in mind that one can say something along the
lines of "her actions
caused this situation" or "her actions made this situation worse"
without saying "she _deserves_ this situation because of her actions."
They're very different sentiments. I'm sure I've seen statements like
the first two in the past few days but I don't recall any like the latter.
I remember statements along the lines of she left a trail, that's why
she got outed, and for all our sakes she should either leave or switch
pseudonyms, because by getting outed she's hurting the project more
than helping it... and I strongly disagree with those statements.
Yes, but those statements aren't saying she _deserved_ it. They say
nothing about SlimVirgin as a person.
BTW, I think there's a slight inaccuracy in your recollection. I don't
think the common argument was that she was hurting the project by
getting outed, I think it was that the project was being hurt by the
attempts to continue covering her identity up afterward. SlimVirgin
herself wasn't actually involved with that as far as I'm aware.
