So what do you do if your conference is the scene of a violent gang rape?
If you are the Chaos Computer Club, you invite the rapists back next year as presenters.
The silencing begins:
There were no Tor talks last year at 33C3, because every Tor talk submitted was silently removed by the CCC to “avoid controversy”.
So, what do we know about this already?
- The Wikipedia article for Chaos Computer Club has no mention of the controversy.
- Tor had a huge sexual assault controversy, ending with the resignation of Jacob Appelbaum, widely reported by numerous major news sources      [and Tor], his targets even created a website to report on him anonymously for fear of reprisal, but barely rates a mention on Wikipedia.
- Jacob Appelbaum‘s article has one sentence about it.
- Morgan Marquis-Boire’s Wikipedia article mentions “an allegation”, while the sources say there were “10 women…who say that they were assaulted by him in episodes going back years”.
For the Twitter hashtag, see #34C3.
The four-day event starts today (Wednesday) in Leipzig, east Germany.
UPDATE: Looks like someone has persisted:
