    Holiday Party. Alcohol. Private Room. VR.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    To be fair I get what you are saying . Lots of consenting fun and games happen at parties with booze that may not normally happen.... But personally I do like to draw the line at sexual assault

    Yes well, I could accuse you of "verbal assault" right now, but does that make it true?

    We do not know the details of what took place, and while you draw the line at sexual assault, I draw the line at the passing of an "accusation" as an "affirmed judgement."

    I am just posting a news report don't shoot the messenger !
    I did put in the title IF true.

    You were the one who deflected onto the booze and party (I assume in jest)

    You didn't put "if" in your comment here:

    Sounds like you made a judgement.

    You were the one who deflected onto the booze and party (I assume in jest)

    I don't think it counts as a deflection to bring up the actual details of the situation. Did you not read the story?

    Taylor confirmed to Business Insider that she met Antonov at a GDC afterparty in 2016, saying that he had offered to give her a private preview of the upcoming Oculus Rift headset before taking her to a private room and groping her.

    Explain how I am deflecting by bringing the fact that there was a party, private room, and VR? The only thing I am adding is "alcohol" since this was an After Party situation following a Holiday Party. There's usually alcohol involved in all of that. But even if there isn't alcohol, I would be guilty of making an assumption to the details, not deflecting from the details.

    I thought Antonov was still there, just moved to Facebook instead of Oculus. He worked on Insight I think. I checked his LinkedIn thingummybob when Mitchell left.

    Well, before anything's been proven or disproven... I'm generally uncomfortable with the way social media feels the need to chat about this kind of stuff.

    There's loads of interesting VR topics on this forum to keep us amused.
