A pretty good assessment.

Yeah, I think that philosophy works when someone who is a known abuser that repeatedly capitalizes on attention he gets to further abuse others. To be silent is to be complicit, and not everyone may be familiar with his history. This is now something like the third or fourth cycle of him attempting to gain attention and credibility, and we know where this goes for him, because he’s done this several times. So, no, just “staying away” is not an option.
