Hmm...I smell a grudge. Ever heard of the benefit of the doubt? You have NO fucking clue what's really going on in his or ANYBODY'S heads. You haven't seemed to consider for even a second that the things Andy has said in regards to his past are genuine, or that a person CAN change and even be worthy of forgiveness. This blog is really fucking sad.
We’ve been thinking about how to answer this, and the truth is you have no reason to believe this blog. That’s fine. It’s up to you.
Here’s the thing: when we started it, we figured we’d post a couple of posts, give people a heads up on Andy’s past, take a look at how he seems to be going through the same motions now, and leave it at that. But it didn’t work out that way because people started to get in contact with their experiences. Nothing anyone is comfortable publishing, and nothing we can reveal without making the sources obvious. And they don’t want anything more to do with Andy because of how he treated them. We’re talking about how he’s treated people within the past year, up to very recently. He’s still scaring people, still emotionally manipulating people, and we know this because these people have got in touch just to have someone to talk to.
So the reason we know the things he’s saying aren’t genuine is because we have first-hand accounts from several people hurt by him and left in his wake. You don’t have that. That’s how it goes - he scares people, and then they aren’t comfortable talking about him in public.
There’s no reason you should believe that. We know that. It’s just a he-said, we-said thing that can’t be resolved without proof, and there isn’t any that anyone is willing to reveal.
Ultimately, it’s up to everyone to make up their own minds about him. Our sole aim here was to ensure that people have the information necessary to do that. I had thought that we were pretty much done, but then the recent shit happened and we got over a thousand reblogs and a bunch of asks in one day, which is always a sign there’s something up with Andy.
I reiterate: we’re not asking anyone to take anything here on faith. Trusting your gut is the best advice I’ve ever gotten when dealing with people like Andy. If your gut tells you he’s a decent guy who’s changed, then go with that.
