I look forward to the idiots behind this being told by a judge

just how much of their ass they're going to lose.
A website allegedly run by University of Washington students allows individuals to publicly accuse people of sexual assault with no evidence. 

The website, titled “Make them scared UW,” was first registered in November of last year but reportedly launched in late September of this year by University of Washington students, the Daily UW campus newspaper reports.
Oh yeah, that's great.  Whatever could go wrong?
Thus far, every person named on the list is male(Surprise!, right?), and their names include the school they attend. Many listed on the site appear to be University of Washington students, but as apparent word of this site has spread, students from many other colleges are now listed, too.

The site does not employ any mechanisms to verify the truth of any accusations it publishes, and the website’s moderators attempt to protect themselves from liability or criticism by stating atop the list of the accused: “Please remember, just because a name is on this list does not mean the individual is guilty. All it means is that we have received an accusation against them.”
Yeah, that's a defense...

This is going to wind up with someone's life damaged, or them being harassed or attacked over one of their accusations.  Aside from any problems they might have, they won't give a damn.  And it'll make this whole blood mess that much worse.
