I don't know. But this is an example that helps explain why not many in the industry, especially small time devs, are speaking up about this.

Says it was planned and he's coming back to a different role at Gawker.

Think that second bit will happen, or is it a replay of how the Spartans treated overconfident Helots?

You missed this part

Last I saw they were still trying to confirm this on 8Chan.

I can't believe how this has grown.

This is becoming a social movement for the record books.

Does anyone know why Janet Bloomfield's twitter page was suspended and if it's connected to gamergate?

Again? It was suspended once a few months ago, before GG blew up. Some feminist complained to Twitter about her.

RE: #GamerGate thread
I think the reason why we're seeing these kinds of threats and misrepresentation is because the clickbait websites are running scared. Their business model has been to piss people off and get a bunch of clicks to their sites; their MO is to encourage trolling and flame wars [1]

#GamerGate is about ethics in journalism. It's a statement that says "Hey, you know, we want positive insightful discussion of games, not a bunch of poorly written flamebait". It's a statement that says "I don't want some crappy text-only interactive fiction game [2] given a lot of press just because it happened to be written by a female who cries 'I'm a victim!'"

And, finally, it's a statement that if your goal in the world is to incite anger, that anger will eventually boomerang back at you.

[1] For example, Salon (yet another liberal puffingtonhost wannabe site) deleted a comment I wrote. In the deleted post, I put to task one troll, pointing out, from their history, how they have a history of spewing abusive flame bait. Instead of banning them, the way we do here, they instead deleted my comment. Their commenting system also does not have killfiles (ignore lists). It's clear they want to fan endless flame wars in the name of getting more clicks to their site.

[2] There is a pretty big IF community out there, but it's at best a very niche gaming category. Certainly not mainstream enough to have a game put on Steam.

"How about you go occupy a bin"

There are those that will support a notion because it serves their interests and that's their only concern.

There are those of us that will abandon power structures and movement when over reach or corruption are sensed.

I for one can tell you from experience that if you're truly on the side of truth and justice, you will be crucified by both side of any idealistic conflict. I've been chastised by racist and "anti-racists". Former liberal and conservative friends have been cut loose over their wrongful zeal against my views. Men and women have looked at me as a bigot over my opinions on sex issues being verbalized in public.

In today's America, one of the surest ways to know you're doing the ethical thing it seems is if everyone hates you, you're truly bring ethical

The more you pay attention, the more you realise it's the same handful of names over and over again: professional agitators, desperate for attention, who gradually drift further and further left, until their brand of leftism becomes extreme enough it threatens to damage customer relationships with brands.

I've notice our old friend and short-haired slob, Laurie Penny, was involved in Occupy Wall Street in 2011, and was praising the Egyptian Revolution and 4chan's 'Geek' Politicisation the same year. She's right there during Atheism Plus in 2013, talking about 'Intersection' and 'Privilege'. By the end of 2013, she's spouting that women are no longer safe online due to the abuse of Evil Men. In Sep this year, she's posting obnoxious commentary about how SJW's are winning the culture war, then up she pops the other week, derping about gamergate.

Occupy Wall Street went nowhere. The Egyptian Revolution is threatening to turn Egypt into a Failed State. If you type 'Atheism Plus' into Google the first suggested autocomplete it 'dead'. Now the GamerGamers are trying to take down the journalism industry.

Everything professional SJW agitators like her touches turns to shit.

You know the names. Amanda Hess. Leigh Alexander. Jessica Valenti. Caitlin Dewey. Jenn McWreight. Rebecca Watson. The same handful of troublemakers stirring up shit, the extremist SJW brand of Neo-Feminism irrational enough to even start annoying feminists and leftists, and with that, starting to equate feminism with irrational hatred, thereby threatening the brands advertising on the sites they write for by association.

The new SJW feminists are damaging Feminism as a safe sell. Slow clap.

I'm making a meme picture right now with the purpose of tying the msm with gaming journalism. Before gg loses gusto, hopefully I can help start locomotion on attacking leftist media collusion at large among the gg'ers, especially with the occupy people involved now.

Help me by providing links to msm talking heads and the feminist front

RE: #GamerGate thread
edit-

It looks like the information that I was looking for to tie media heads together via corporation and politics is more broad and far reaching than I originally anticipated. I'll be working on this over the weekend it looks like, so feel free to draw links between names involved in gamergate, sjw'ing in popular newspapers and most importantly journopros to gamejournopros.

I'll take private messages

Welp, guys, time to pack it in. SCIENCETM has weighed in and GamerGate is about harassing women.

Read the article for the complete horseshit methodology which conflates tweets with a negative tone as "harassment." Laugh

http://www.newsweek.com/gamergate-about-...how-279736

John Scalzi is trumpeting this nonsense study as the Word of God (or perhaps the Word of Dawkins?). The way he treats Newsweek as an authoritative source (Laugh) without a hint of irony borders on parody.

I'm at a local deli where I'm a regular and these female gamers are here waiting for their sandwiches. They're talking about gamergate and are angry at Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian for appropriating gaming culture for profit. This is the side the media doesn't talk about.

Looks like the liberals are facing a sleeping majority which is waking up. Gametgate is indeed just the tip of the iceberg.

Ironically, if there's anything scaring away women gamers and potential developers It's Anita and co's hysteria about a "rampant culture of harassment and misogyny".

Their argument of harassment is stupid. People are just retweeting and commenting on controversial tweets by controversial people. Girls got the most attention, hence the most tweets.

Even then, im questionable about their data collection methods of how they choose tweets. Further, sentiment analysis is notoriously shitty when it comes to internet jargon. And on top of that, they don't compare the sentiment against a baseline index. Sentiment analysis is pretty worthless by itself since people are probably normally this "negative" on the internet in general and most of the tweets are neutral.

Edit: Someone else wrote about the same concerns.
