Has anyone seen examples to confirm the following claim?

"A high-profile Tor developer is mocking and threatening Daniel
Bernstein, an eminent cryptographer of unblemished professional
reputation, calling him names on Twitter and alleging that his
judgment about technical issues is clouded because his supposed pet
pupil has supposedly been outed as a sexual predator."

That's a good one. (Irony, folks, Irony)

I saw many people up in arms about the allegations before anything was

I didn't know Jerk-Off [0] (I knew just the song Opiate [1], which
partly fits as well).

People are misinterpreting these lyrics very often. (Don't take it as
call to self-justice.)

At first I didn't not think the intro would make any sense in regard to
all this here, but maybe it does.

BTW, a revolt would make more noise, wouldn't it?
