VidCon, I do hope you realize that allowing one of your panelists to harass a paying customer and defending this as somehow deserved opens you up to a potential civil suit. The attack Sarkeesian launched did not end with her harassment at the panel. Her comments could have incited harassment or violence at the panel. It also prompted hundreds of her supporters to attack Sargon via Twitter.
That is a violation of California’s law. So keep in mind that while you may write smug articles defending a harasser, you are also open to civil prosecution should Sargon choose to do so.
