That is certainly a disturbing phrase. I hadn't heard about that.
Again, can someone sketch out what happened, privately or here?

Pulling back, across the years we've seen dubious conduct from
people who were for a time integral members of our community
or simply crossed our paths. Some of whom reached mainstream
prominence. Whose intersection with us can be discerned by a
Google search. (I have several names in mind. Which, were I to
enumerate, would put this message into those search results.)
The answer, I suppose, is to grow to sufficient numbers that
we are not tarnished by the actions of any one person, however
notorious. But history has shown where even a movement of
millions was considered suspect because of one or two people.
