Well, yes. But my point was that he is clearly pursuing fame, which seems rather reckless if you've raped a bunch of people and would rather nobody finds out.

Since that article has come out, a few other women comics including a mate of mine have spoken about their experiences with him which range from mild to horrifying. Always hated the smug cunt so yeah, I unambiguously do hope this ends his piss poor slideshow career.

If anything good comes from this, is might be that ambitious young male comics might start seriously considering not sexually assaulting or raping people purely as a practical career move.

Let's not discount just how deeply rooted male egotism is though, revelling in thinking you're unstoppable and you can basically do whatever you want, which isn't a million miles away from the chekky "hiding in plain sight" shit that you get from cunts like Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy.

Granted, Veitch was not yet as famous as most big names who use high status to get away with it, but then it doesn't take any shred of intelligence for men to behave like this. It is woven thick enough into the fabric for a lot of men to think they can get away with it regardless. It takes far more intelligence to question these standards and actively try to distance from them, and so by that logic it's safe to conclude that James Veitch was just a stupid fucking twat.

A colleague sent me the link to that as they thought it was a genuine explanation breaking down what happens when you interact with spam, an issue which sometimes comes up in my work.

I watched it and was genuinely angry at how lazy, hack and obvious it all was. To call it beige would be a compliment.

Oh ... THAT cunt.

No loss either comedically or as a human being. Cancel 'im Sarge.

Did you see Lou Sanders tweets after this Veitch thing?

and there's another fucking uk comic rapist on here who i know has raped ppl but its not my story to tell & the women want to forget it 💔

- that one remains on her timeline but it followed on from one saying someone who was RTing about the Veitch thing was widely regarded as a sex pest themselves.

Never heard of Veitch either, but upon Googling him I hereby declare his look as local nonce moonlights as low budget Graham Coxon impersonator

Not her story but also not a helpful tweet, and one that can only lead to witch-hunting.

Not mentioning anyone by name is going to lead to witch hunting?

I think so. People will start looking for people to blame (the tweet immediately makes you wonder who it is). And some could send messages to or about someone without any evidence. Or organise a Glinner-esque campaign of twattery. Yes, it's unlikely or could happen anyway - depending on your view - but I still don't see how tweets like Lou's help anyone. The only positive I can see coming from it is if the woman mentioned speaks up but even then it seems like egging her on when she might not want to for whatever reason.
