I would have said more like the knickers of one of his victims, but then I realised we don't have any lawyers.

I somehow missed the thing about Evilore allegedly posting revenge porn, remember reading about the ass grab in Spain though as I was following that thread at the time.

We should open a thread to welcome Neogaf refugees.

Look, if James Bond can walk into a shower uninvited, why can't I.

Courtesy of Reddit:

For a little context:

Back in July a former NeoGAF moderator made the news when it was revealed that he was in possession of child pornography. NeoGAF moderators handled the situation extremely poorly, locking all threads related to the arrest and denying they knew him at a personal level— a false claim. Amir0x had been allowed to break several rules on the site, and most members would agree he was treated with favoritism. NeoGAF admin Tyler Malka denied having known his real name despite having donated $1000 to him (no, I’m not making this up.

That’s not the only time Evilore has made some questionable moves regarding sexual misconduct. [In 2012, he bragged about grabbing a random girl’s ass.

Jumping forward to just a few days ago, a new allegation against Evilore was posted on Facebook. If you read through, you’ll see he’s being accused of some really creepy and pathetic stuff. Over on TheBore, they host a discussion of NeoGAF’s hypocrisy. NeoGAF user Polyh3dron came in and explained how the Facebook post was discovered, basically explaining that the post is real.

“Guess I should chime in since I'm being named.

In a private group convo, one of my fellow participants brought up the fact that EL got #MeToo'd on FB. I saw someone on my feed telling a story an hour prior that could've fit but I didn't read it too closely, was skeptical and posted a shot in our convo.. I was then directed toward the comments and lo and behold, there was the name. Was a holy gooseberry fool moment for me, and something of a letdown too, having met both the accuser and the accused IRL. Posted that shot in our convo as well. Came to the realization that this should only really go public if the accuser wants it to because it's her story to tell, and the rest of the participants in the convo reached the same consensus, or so it seemed. I deleted the shots from our group chat. Turned out one of the people in there saved the shots, and gave them to another person who then posted it on Voat, and did a godawful job at concealing the identity of the accuser and myself before doing so. She doesn't deserve to get doxxed and harassed by the internet mob if she's not ready for it, and it's solely for that reason that I didn't want this getting out there, which is why I regret sharing that shot in that group convo.

But yes, it's real.”

Polyh3dron was banned from NeoGAF shortly before TheBore post was made without any indication of misbehavior. Note that Polyh3dron may have been linked to the information leaking, so he had a target on his back. Going through his post history, he hadn't said anything controversial, even by NeoGAF standards.

TL;DR

NeoGAF owner Evilore has been accused of trying to get into the shower with a woman whose film he had been in. His supposed advances were uninvited and he apparently knew she had a boyfriend


Just going to put this out there...

Kotaku is going to break this story in the mainstream.

There are active instructions from EviLore for mods to nuke this topic, confirmed by a mod
Contact has been made with the accuser, she is NOT retracting her accusation
In addition to openly admitting sexual assault in Spain and creeping on this new accuser, EviLore actively sought AND distributed revenge porn of another person's girlfriend because she rejected him.
Tyler Malka (EviLore) outwardly shows himself to be 'liberal/progressive' so that advertiser money is safe.
If you hate NeoGAF, spread this message, this story is about the explode.

Someone has started a crowdfunding campaign to buy Neogaf. Not sure why anyone would want to be associated with the name at this point to be honest.

It would probably need a bit of a clean sweep really. New leadership, entirely new moderation team (Given that moderators in the past have been proven to be aware of things that were going and tried to cover it up), possibly even a new name. Though the latter would probably need to be a more transitional shift.

Off Topic starting to turn into a bit of a wild west with the mods quitting.

Noticing people saying goodbye in a bunch of threads I subscribe to as well.

Wouldn't surprise me if IGN or even one of the big publishers try to buy it.

People are now just posting threads volunteering themselves and others as potential new administrators/owners for the site.
