The Oberlin College suit and judgement is only the most recent example of people not taking it anymore. From Public Shame to the Courtroom.
Last year, I reported on a lawsuit that a man accused of rape on the “Shitty Media Men” spreadsheet filed against the woman who had created and circulated the document.

Natasha Tynes posted a photo of a NY City transit worker violating regulations by eating on a train. She lost a book contract.
Now Tynes is suing her publisher, Rare Bird Lit, for more than $13 million, USA Today reports, “alleging the company defamed her and breached a publishing contract amid a social media shaming.”
