"Why are you so willing to believe that they're making it up?"
1. I have an analytical mindset which drives me toward skepticism of the extreme, often to a unhealthy contrarian level.
2. I have had a personal experience where an individual lied to moderators of a Discord server I shared by conflating a previously neutral discussion and claiming it to be a series of heated ones.
3. I have been raised with a hypochondriac of a sister and a culture of fundamentalist propaganda unknowingly and knowingly spread by people I trust.

People are consciously and subconsciously willing to conflate things to support themselves and others they care about. I am fond of Oney and this New Guy meme so I have a hard time associating either with hatefulness. Likewise I think nuances of situations on social media leave room for situations to get conflated unintentionally. Someone using the word "hundreds" instead of "lots" can change the meaning of a situation entirely, as can individuals retelling experiences they heard second-hand.

I don't think those being harassed are all 100% liars, I just have my doubts that the full context is being told, and that the context we do hear is being used by other people as propaganda for a faction rhetoric.
