OK, lets go through his latest statement in a little more detail:

The accusation was made via E-Mail while I was at work. I disposed of it since “Lol, Hate Mail!”. And it was blatantly stupid. I have never been to TAM ever. In addition Mabus was doing the rounds so I just put it down to his nonsense.
OK, one email arrives, presumably to his contact @gmail address that is on his site.
He thinks it was Mabus and so does nothing.
OK, no problem there.
A few days later when logging back in, I realised that more than one accusation has been made at the same time. I then realised that this makes me liable should anyone accuse me on here of ignoring “accusations”.
Hmm... one ridiculous and false accusation from Mabus and there's no problem.
Two accusations from Mabus means you have to do something serious?
So I released the claim myself. However I did so with the point that I actually have an Alibi.
He released the claim himself?
What does that mean?
I poked around the Slymefront today. I noticed someone saying “alibis don’t count”.
A search of the above phrase shows it on the slymepit in Avicenna's own quote.
There's no record of that phrase on the slymepit at the time he wrote it.
They do when you are in another country on the other side of the bloody planet. Despite what my ex-girlfriends may say, my penis is not that large and is not visible from space.
I don't think it's advisable at this point in time to start mentioning what your ex girlfriends are saying about you.
It is physically impossible to have raped someone or molested someone or twerked someone or bought someone a drink or approached them in an elevator for “coffee” at TAM as I wasn’t at TAM, wasn’t in the USA and more than a 1000 miles away. I have NEVER been to TAM and judging from the way I am treated currently am unlikely to be willing to do so since I am just someone who’s life was set to be ruined by a stupid allegation for the sake of an Internet Debate.
Is anyone here disputing this point?
People said “meh at that point” and left it at that. Because it was clearly a stupid allegation.
Richard however brought it up without the response of “It’s A Stupid Allegation and Blatantly Incorrect”. The most important point of me mentioning it was my alibi.
Richard linked to oolons post that seems to be the first instance anyone publicly mentions the allegation, and in so doing he calls it a false allegation.
"@ool0n How many over at FfTB have had ("false") rape allegations levelled at them? Avicenna has now joined the list. http://freethoughtblogs.com/butterflies ... ent-617262
This rape allegation claim by oolon doesn't mention TAM and so there is zero reason for Sanderson to discuss Avicennas alibi.
Either this meant that Richard simply didn’t know about the alibi meaning he never saw the response to the original allegation
Where is the response to the original allegations?
Is there another post we are missing from the timeline?
or someone he knew told him about the allegation without the alibi.
Errr... wouldn't that be oolon, the person he links to in that very tweet?
Either way it’s mighty fucking suspicious to bring it up suddenly.
Not if his bringing it up suddenly is simply an example of the standard tweeting practice of quoting new pieces of information gleaned from comment threads.
The stupid allegation caused me no financial distress since I don’t work for money. BUT it did cost a Charity Money. We had to pay for chaperones at all times and I had to delay lists forcing midwifes to take over and overwork on others who took up the slack. It cost time to go through my criminal records and to prove travel documentation.
Is he seriously suggesting that Sanderson's link to oolons remark - with the description of it as a "false" allegation - was enough to institute a huge security operation? Remember, Avicenna assumes that the allegations are about TAM - and it is trivially easy for him to prove they were false because he was in India at the time (working for the same organization that is apparently now instituting the security clearance procedure due to allegations that he was in the USA last month!)
Had I not done this and Richard said what he said, I would have been in a lot more trouble and under pending investigations. The fact that I brought it up myself granted me some leeway with work.
The accusations are preposterous.
There is no way the organization would have even heard about the accusations in the first place because Avicenna is pseudonymous and so the only way the charity to hear about the charges would be if he personally told them.
Why tell anyone of such silly allegations?
Can you see why I am suspicious? No one’s brought it up for weeks and suddenly up pops the allegation without the defence?
Ask oolon about that one.
Oh and I poked around the Slymepit. I know a lot of people are going “why aren’t they taking these accusations seriously”.
2 weeks of observation, paperwork, security checks and re-clearance plus chaperoned.
That’s pretty serious. And the worst part is they accused me while I was working in women’s healthcare. So I have to put up another 2 weeks worth of work. 120 hours in total to make up for hours lost.
Still think those faux rape accusations are funny and helpful?
I am suspicious.
Seems like he's completely avoiding the point that Sanderson simply pointed to an accusation made by oolon and he is claiming that we at the slymepit are asking the question "“why aren’t they taking these accusations seriously” when it's blindingly obvious that nobody here is making that point.
Something very fishy is going on here.
