- I am the guy who originally insinuated that Harshita had not developed her iOS crypto price application.
- I will not rehash the events or debate the evidence, I did it in a fit of general rage and irresponsible attitude.
- I said some pretty nasty and rude things on the Facebook post where I did so.
- I was reported and blocked.
- That only made my rage increase, so I leaked the screenshots to some people. They ended up making the posts on reddit which went viral and caused a lot of flak to Harshita.
- To the extent that random internet shitheads sent her rape threats and so on - Great work reddit!
- Since I am fundamentally responsible for that by providing the ammo that made the posts viral I am writing this to apologize publicly and admit that I made a big mistake without considering negative effects that could happen to a young girl.
- Whatever my opinions about her code, I should have kept it to myself, because the evidence is not conclusive.
- There was nothing to gain except a sense of misdirected self righteousness.
- I'm ashamed that I ended up falling prey to internet disease of trolling and taking down others for no good reason in public forums.
- Subsequent to my original post, I have not posted anything anywhere else, it has been done by the author of namc.in under various alts, and a certain dawny33 who shared it on Hackernews
- I have commented on those threads in a few places stupidly defending my position and causing more damage.
- Whatever my differences of opinion with Harshita should have been resolved privately, since we were friends of a fashion before this debacle.
- I have told the posters Namrata, Robin and dawny33 (whose real id I do not know) to delete all material related to this, since were all morally responsible for causing this.
- I've told them to delete all tweets, reddit and hackernews posts and the original blog post on namc.in
- If they have any sense and conscience at all, they will do so.
- Hackernews won't delete large posts, apparently - mods refused to delete it.
- Namrata has not yet deleted her blog post thats the primary content now.
- I did a terrible mistake in allowing and encouraging them, because it went ballistic in a way that I could not have ever predicted.
- I don't care what anyone thinks of me after this post - whatever the circumstances, someone ended up getting abused online by random strangers and thats just wrong.
