So sad that I moved away from California and no longer have bay (California Laurel) trees growing behind my house :(

An article that repeatedly describes “harassment” and “harassers” in regards to Taylor Lorenz is not “balanced”.

“Harassment” has a very particular meaning and getting into a Twitter dispute with someone doesn’t mean “harassment”. Taylor slammed a founder and she got pushback from the community that backs founders. And she and the media tribe continued to return volleys during the entire back and forth.

Is the Verge writing an article loudly condemning the actions of VCs and (wrongly) comparing them to Gamergate also “harassment”? I would say no.

That word implies something much worse.
