The anti-Comicsgate crowd's lawbreaking continues

Ethan Van Sciver posted the following item telling that doxxing by anti-Comicsgate creeps appears to still be a problem:

More offensive lawbreaking over some tepid figurines or something like that? Truly sick. I hope the police have been informed, and most importantly, that they're investigating convincingly.

I also noticed writer Tony Bedard saying the following:

What is this? He's complaining about crowdfunding for development of creator-owned projects, even after supposedly congratulating? He certainly doesn't seem to understand that's the purpose of most of the crowdfunding pages set up for making money to pay for all the art equipment needed to prepare the drafts for the comics. There's more:

Oh, for crying out loud. This isn't doing any good. Certainly not if he's also saying virtually all creator-owned products by people siding with Comicsgate are all trash and is suggesting softness on felons. Some of those I've seen have pretty good artwork, and like all creator-owned items as a whole, quality varies everywhere. Bedard's not going to do his career any favor if he sticks even remotely with a victim-blaming angle, and act like van Sciver's not a victim in any way, so he'd do well to just cut it out.

And again, I hope police are doing everything they can to locate and arrest the criminals who committed these illegalities.

One can only hope the pro-Comicsgate crowd isn't engaged in the same type of lawbreaking, or lawbreaking at all.

“I hope police are doing everything they can to locate and arrest the criminals who committed these illegalities.”

What illegalities? Nothing in the post describes anyone doing anything illegal. It is not even what we normally think of as doxxing; there is no suggestion that any information is being released to the general public. And there is also no indication of how Sciver found out about this; it sounds like he is just repeating second-hand information, and that is giving his sincerity the benefit of the doubt. Is there even a thing called AntiComicsGate?

Sciver has been accused of doxxing other people in the past, or encouraging his followers to do so. This is what Bedard is referring to when he says Ethan is not a victim; that threats are bad, but it is not surprising that what goes around comes around.

I have never heard of someone associated with comics gate doing anything even remotely illegal toward anyone... However at least two "comicsgaters" have been swatted by the tolerant and inclusive opposition. Swatting, or "attempted murder by way of police", is about as illegal as it gets.

Swatting is illegal; but nobody swatted Van Sciver. Of the two comicshaters who were swatted, the first appears to have been due to a personal grudge that had nothing to do with cultural wars, and in the second the perpetrator's motive is unknown.
