this seems to be an anger that both spread and grew over the course of a few days
Days? Months more like for most of the OTW people, and that's assuming we didn't know her before we joined the OTW. The furious outpouring of hate is more because those of us who aren't afraid of her are seriously pissed about her ability to bully those who are. This isn't the first time she's outed people. I'm not sure it's even the first time she's outed this person. We played nice. We took the high road. She's obviously incapable of abiding by even the most minimal of social norms, and I don't want her hurting any clueless fandom newbies just because the rest of us are too chicken to warn them.

I think you are substantiating what I said. I told talktooloose
that I didn't think this particular outpouring of anger was due to posting quickly before thinking, but was building over days. So I suggested that one of the reasons it was happening was because some people were already angry at Laura and this became a venue for expressing that anger.
