    For a group of grown men, there sure are a lot of drama queens in here. I was skeptical of the validity of the claims as well until the statement was released, and I am a woman that has been put in more gross situations than any of you guys would think. It's not such a far fetched notion to acknowledge that anyone can say anything on the internet to gain attention/cause trouble. It's the easiest thing in the world to sit behind your keyboard in the comfort of your home and spread lies. It's also not such a far fetched notion to acknowledge that people we may admire such as Lacey and C.K. might be gross. I think anyone in here that was skeptical were keeping the door open to both possibilities until more information was provided. Move on. Thank you.

    If you're trying to hold back the mob, why not just say that there's no reason to rush to judgement? You say you're playing devil's advocate, but really you're just trotting out the generic playbook for rape denial: he's a good family man and she's mentally ill, repeat until the victim slinks off into a corner and is never heard from again.

    No, but it is very clearly what you implied. What else were you bringing up her mental condition for? The clear and insidious accusation is that because she suffers from a mental illness, she is untrustworthy.

    I guess I’ll just agree to disagree, then. Not once did I say “okay well that girl is openly bipolar so she probably just made this whole thing up”. If that’s how you’d like to interpret my post, okay, you’re welcome to go for it. But it’s not what I said. Before developments were made and hollow apologies were posted, I was in a camp of people willing to hear about more evidence or facts surface before jumping to one conclusion or another. I feel like I’m being put on full blast because I didn’t immediately side with the first allegation, and because I took a moment to assess the credibility of a piece of the larger picture before we got any other pieces of the puzzle. I’m not a Lacey apologist and I can’t rationalize his actions. But I also don’t think anyone is a piece of shit for being initially skeptical about any scenario where something could be proven by the victim, if the victim felt like proving it, but may or may not at their own discretion.

    Well, nice thread. Got three or four new VC posters I know are awful people. Easily the grossest thing I've read on here.

    Exactly! It's gaslighting at a distance, without even the courage to speak clearly. There's no reason and no excuse to mention her mental state, especially not when followed up with the sneakily accusatory, "But if her reputation is truly on the line..." bit.

    1% my ass. tons of comments here and on socials/other forums, including yours, range from grossly naive to a defense of pedophilia. your lil gem, quoted above, belongs to the former. everything you've named here – mental disorders, panic, deep trauma when confronted with dredging things up – is a textbook example of the vile outworkings of grooming, sexual abuse, and manipulation. the fact you interpret it as potential indication of slander is irresponsible and clearly indicates you should not comment so crassly on something you clearly have no experience with.

    “I am going to completely smear this man’s reputation after a decade by revisiting this experience and bringing it to the public. I could potentially prove that what I am saying is 100% true, but I don’t know if I feel like revisiting the experience.” Alright man. Because that logic doesn’t necessarily check out to me, I guess I’m disgusting? Great to know. It’s also worth noting that I made that post as soon as the first accusation was made, well before Jesse’s statement. Fuck me for trying to keep a rational head and consider a larger picture, right? I still refer to the Conor Oberst incident, where a lot of people jumped the gun and immediately assumed he was a piece of shit without a shred of evidence. Did you scoff at those people too? What happens when the accused culprit turns out to be innocent? “Oh, whoops, looks like you guys were right and the whole thing was fabricated. My bad! lol” Am I close? But the fact Jesse made his statement after my post, and didn’t even address the age gap, is certainly concerning and really makes it impossible for anyone to defend him. Wish it wasn’t the case, but short of spelling out exactly what happened, I think we can all deduct that he’s rightfully in hot water and that more claims will bubble up to the surface, from the sounds of it.

    People still need a line drawn in the sand for them to see whether pedophilia is OK or not.

    You already made this """joke""" yesterday by the way and it's still just as void of humor as it was then. Please hurry up and get banned again.

    Just an FYI, you don't need a VMP membership to buy the SVE album from their store. You'll notice it doesn't have a "Member's Exclusive" banner over it so anyone can buy it.

    sorry, but you can't say something so daft and claim "devil's advocate." "devil's advocate" is reserved for a reasonable presentation of counterfactuals, and the fact you don't realize the first thing about the relationship of abuse, trauma, and mental illness disqualifies you here. as others have said, you're actually gaslighting and victim blaming, and talking out your hiney in doing so. perhaps, to be fair, it was initially an unwitting error on your part. but honestly you can be quiet about how misunderstood you are when your original point is, as you admit yourself, to undermine the credibility of a victim.

    If they repressed Beyond Hypothermia, I would gladly buy a copy, but not at some stupid “save our label” price. If they just bent even in the slightest to what fans and collectors wanted, it might be better for business. Always supported Aaron and HHR, and will, but the “hey, we found old stock, come spend a fortune on it” yard sale thing is off-putting.

    I remember many years ago some guy at a record swap had on original pressing of Cool Struttin' in pristine condition for $200. I was younger and even poorer, but damn. Regrets.
