Just for the record, Frieda (and others who opened up to ASG) knew about the suspicions and rumors for about as long as everyone else and chose not to give them any heed. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, the prevailing attitude among people who felt that way when I talked to them was "Well even if she's lied about some things, there's still a person there that I've been talking to for years." which is a sympathetic view and makes sense if you're intimately acquainted (or think you are) with someone. It wasn't until everyone figured out the extent of the fraud that that point of view became moot for most everyone. I don't think there's anyone who shared intimate details with ASG who "had no idea" there might be something off. As for sexual harassment, it was against the rules and people other than Sapient had been punished for it before that whole issue came to light. The specific problem in that situation was: who do you complain to when it's the Head Admin perpetrating it?, and that's what resulted in an overhaul of the existing sexual harassment policy to provide other avenues for complaints and give admins more power to investigate sexual harassment claims.
