Sarah Polley: The Men You Meet Making Movies - The New York Times

"The implication wasn’t subtle. I replied that I wasn’t very ambitious or interested in acting, which was true. He then asked me about my political activism and went on to recast himself as a left-wing activist, which was among the funniest things I’d ever heard."

Here Are Twitter's Latest Rules for Fighting Hate and Abuse
Hate symbols and imagery (new)*We are still defining the exact scope of what will be covered by this policy. At a high level, hateful imagery, hate symbols, etc will now be considered sensitive media (similar to how we handle and enforce adult content and graphic violence). More details to come.

Violent groups (new)*We are still defining the exact scope of what will be covered by this policy. At a high level, we will take enforcement action against organizations that use/have historically used violence as a means to advance their cause. More details to come here as well (including insight into the factors we will consider to identify such groups).

Tweets that glorify violence (new)*We already take enforcement action against direct violent threats (“I’m going to kill you”), vague violent threats (“Someone should kill you”) and wishes/hopes of serious physical harm, death, or disease (“I hope someone kills you”). Moving forward, we will also take action against content that glorifies (“Praise be to for shooting up. He’s a hero!”) and/or condones (“Murdering makes sense. That way they won’t be a drain on social services”). More details to come.

Pretty Terrible | Another Day, Another Serial Harasser

While I was on Facebook this afternoon, I ran across a post from Jaym Gates (screencap). It’s about a man who has been harassing her for quite some time–to the point of serious mental distress.

In the comments, someone posted a link to a Facebook profile, who Jaym confirmed was her harasser: Warren Schultz.

EDITED TO ADD: Warren Schultz is a freelance professional photographer specializing in cosplay photography. This means he has regular access to vulnerable populations; specifically teenagers and women. He has been a vendor at DragonCon in the past. I do not know if the convention knows about Schultz’s history of harassment and abuse. They probably should.
