Idk, I think it's worth mentioning. I didn't know that about him.

Sure bring it to people’s attention, as I didn’t know either, but I was arguing that we can’t scrub the dude from history as that’s just a deluded expectation.

No need to even bring it to people's attention. The guy is known among normies for a maybe virtual cat at best and not much else. That's his contribution and importance to humanity and general audiences won't need to recall anything else. Crying to bring to attention the whole pedophile thing outside of academia (or heck, even in academia, how does it even affect the experiment?) is pretty much self-defeating in that sense.
