The David Geffen friendship is certainly something worth scrutinizing, though I am not entirely on board with the idea of implicit guilt by association. Geffen is certainly a shady character and has a lot of rumors about him that make it easy for me to buy he's very likely a sexual abuser, but that doesn't mean Spielberg knows or enables that. Plenty of comedians were friends with Louis C.K. and genuinely had no idea about the allegations, yet us random folk on the internet can read about it.
Perhaps you may have a semi-decent point right there since I don't remember reading that much about Spielberg rumors on IMDb, which isn't like Weinstein, Spacey, CK, or Singer, all of whom had rumors floating on more "legit" sites like IMDb way before stories broke (at least with 3 of them, I was able to read those rumors already before, but I don't remember reading a single thing about Spielberg).
But then... why are people keep saying that Spielberg had year-long rumors floating in the same way those other people did? Are they getting these from conspiracy sources (like Conspiracy Subreddit) or something? I mean, if all those money can block rumors floating in the wild, it doesn't seem to be working for Geffen and I don't think it worked for Jimmy Savile either (and he had a lot of connections with various politicians)...
And what about this statement about Sean Young?:
As for the Sean Young thing, I tried to look up Sean Young's Twitter and couldn't find one (at least not one for Sean Young the actress who was in Blade Runner) so I have no comment on that.
