Getting a restraining order against him is not about slamming him in public. If you're talking about other people, it'd be helpful to be more specific about who said what.

I would certainly not be happy at all if someone threatened me that way. But it never happens because I live my life in such a way as to make it unnecessary.
I'll bet you would if it went far enough south. Ever had a teacher threaten you with a blowtorch? Cause Vunak did that.
When I say I'm somebody's friend, or when a teacher accepts me as a student, my loyalty to that person doesn't end when things go south.
Given the other story with Singh and what an asshole Vunak was being to the guy that financed his operations and got him a Porche, I find it easy to buy that Vunak was an instigator. That, and the part in his video where he admits to being an instigator.
The stakes are obviously higher with higher amounts of money but then again you get back to the question of why these people were in control of the infrastructure, the only ones communicating with the accountants, et cetera et cetera. Given that all that is the case I find it very difficult to buy Vunak as the instigator of the problem.
I have nothing to do with him either, except I've seen some of his stuff on Youtube, read about him here, and read Anatomy of a Streetfight when I was a teenager.
I give you my word that I am not connected in any way to Paul Vunak except that he's two upstream from me and that was a long time back. I have never spoken to, corresponded with or met the man.
Getting a restraining order against an unhinged individual who has promised to do you physical harm is not kicking that man when he's down.
Why am I sticking up for him? I looked at that video and in that video I saw a guy who is not looking good. That dude is hurting and he needs help, not a bunch of people kicking him when he's down.
