Pop Culture Uncovered: Tabletop RPG Community Boycotts Zak Smith

This is a pretty solid writeup of what's gone down this past week.  I know multiple people who suffered personal harm and social and fiancial harm from him over the years, while he manipulated other people into excusing his behavior.  I'm glad as hell this tipping point was reached, and sad as hell this is what it took to reach it.

The only interaction I've ever had with Zak (a very minor interaction, which no doubt he's forgotten) involved him turning vicious and threatening in response to any criticism. I stayed the fuck away and was never surprised when I heard about him doing harm to people, because it acccorded 100% with the read I got from him in that brief moment.

I absolutely believe Mandy, and Jennifer, and Hannah, and Vivka.
