James!: The Numbers: James!: The Numbers: I'm not saying anything about what he did or didn't do. I'm saying it's wrong to try and make an inference about innocence / guilt from the number of other accusations made.
It's a meaningless inference.

And I'm saying that he was never charged with a crime.  All these accusations were thoroughly vetted 20 years ago and despite how skeeved you may be about how his now 16 year long marriage started that shiat has nothing to do with them.

I think you must either be confusing me with someone else, or just an idiot who assumes everyone who disagrees with you holds the same opinion. I've no opinion at all on his marriage, and have never expressed otherwise. FWIW though I have, in other threads, expressed my belief that Allen is innocent, as there is a clear lack of evidence proving guilt.

I was merely calling one of the arguments you were making stupid, which it was.

Oh right, you're the spontaneous pedo guy.


You treat your ignorance like a badge of honor, don't you?

Hell, with people like you defending him, I can see why these allegations have dragged on for so long...

When did Wallace Shawn become an expert on pedophilia?

(This question sorta answers itself, doesn't it?)

Fano: James!: thetrenchcoat: James!: thetrenchcoat: "In fact, like so many of those who have worked with him repeatedly over the decades, I've found him to be not merely thoughtful, serious and honest, but extraordinary and even inspiring in his thoughtfulness, seriousness and honesty. Of the people I've known, he's one of those I've respected most," Shawn writes, adding that those attributes make it hard for him to believe that Allen molested Dylan.

People still work for Roman Polanski too.

Polanski was arrested, charged then plead guilty.  Allen wasn't arrested or charged with any crime.

And Michael Jackson was acquitted. Doesn't mean I'd want my kids around him while he was still alive.

What does Michael Jackson have to do with Woody Allen?

I doubt either of them would watch your kids if you asked.

It's good to know the standard of proof for convicting someone of child rape is how comfortable some random person is with them around their kids.


I wouldn't let Woody Allen babysit my kids!

He asks for full refrigerator privileges and unlimited phone time.

Cletus C.: Why the Mia/Dylan? Mia's name wasn't on the Times piece. You really, really want this to be about ol' nutty Mia, don't you? Why is that?


Because Mia Farrow emotionally abused her child into believing she was molested.  You may not agree, but that would just be your opinion.

Exactly. And I can tell you from personal experiece it doesn't matter how well you THINK you know someone, you never know what goes on behind closed doors. Have a friend I have known almost 30 years. Was thought of by everyone as a great guy. Teacher, tennis coach, singer in a well known local gospel group, stadium announcer for an NBA team. Then allegations come out about child sexual abuse. We rallied around him. Our friend could NEVER do that. He is a good man. Then more victims start coming forward. And then he finally admits "yeah it's true. Dylan may well be lying, we will never know. But that's nust it we will NEVER know. And people who say "Well it's impossible because Woody is the not that kind of guy..." don't know crap about his deepest darkest secrets.

The thing about your friend is he assaulted multiple kids.  That's the MO for pedophiles.  Woody had never been accused before and hasn't been accused since.

Really? Because the whole Soon-Yi thing kind of hurts the credibility of that argument. I don't say it means he did it, but it does speak to a lack of judgment on what is appropriate.


Oh goody, please tell us what you think the facts are with him and Soon-Yi.  This is my favorite.

Well that's good- because Roman Polanski definitely didn't molest Dylan Farrow. Which is what we're talking about....
