Integrity in the BDSM community

I am seeing more and more often people who are going to parties hosted by people who just a few short years ago had all sort of issues, from outing others, to being sex offenders. I know some people were always willing to set aside what is morally right for a good time, but when did it become most of the people in the community?

"The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

What kind of integrity are our "leaders" or even our common members showing when they attend a party hosted by a known predator? What about when they hang out with them all the time? Should you be friends with someone who has shown multiple times in the past that they have no values?

"A life lived with integrity - even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune is a shinning star in whose light others may follow in the years to come." - Denis Waitley

We are supposed to lead our lives as an example of what values we hold true. What values do you old true when you attend an event hosted by someone who has outted others? Or who is a registered sex offender?
