    Great guy, and I would love to emulate some of his qualities, but humans will always fall short of ideals.

    It's reminiscent of the whole Bill Cosby situation - not in terms of the gravity of the allegations, but in the fact that there are just so many of them that it is extremely hard to believe that they could all be unfounded.
    while I agree, I think it matters which ones. throwing someone on a bed et al is not the same as making a stupid comment.

    It would not surprise me if he were a bit of a dick. He often comes across as glib and arrogant and while I wish he didn't, it does not bother me much. but a serial sexual harasser is different. and with sexual harassment being such an ill defined subjective term and the tendency to - at least in the court of public opinion - to assume guilt rather than innocence, it is hard to know what is true and what is a fib.
    I don't think sexual harassment is ill-defined, but if you really do then maybe this can help

    sorry but I stopped watching after 2min. Not sure that the best way to define it is a pseudo-comic routine with canned laughter trawling thru a bunch of imbecilic comments people made online. is there some actual serious discussion there? let me know and I will soldier on

    When I saw a Krauss implication, I thought it would have been more of a Kevin Spacy type of situation.

    Krauss is a "big name" in the sceptic community, so I would not be surprised if he was targeted by god-botherers. He certainly comes off as confident bordering on arrogance. That said, we will see where the evidence takes us.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    I don't have an opinion of him. I judge only his words.

    Your innate ability to determine the sexual preference of people at a distance, that is what's in question.

    It's good to try to figure out as much about a person as possible to determine the optimal way they want to be treated.
