Prominent PC indie developer in bed with gaming journalists, and other PC devs.

Quoting someone from internet,
"We don't give a damn of who's sleeping with who. What matters is the line of profession that they're in"

Corruption in gaming journalism is like a dark secret. We know about it, but don't give a second thought. Indirectly, it's like telling them that, "We don't care if we got lied by you guys. Continue doing shady stuff behind the scene, keep lying to us, keep make those click-bait articles. We'll click it anyway". Now that this was out, it's still worth the discussion, even though we all know about it. This maybe just the tip of the iceberg of other stuff happened behind the scene. That's the point that (hopefully) people will realize from the discussion about this, and not the whole sleeping stuff.

It's kinda unfortunate that many are still focused on the gender aspect of this matter, while it was never the focus. Internet never hate this 'girl', they hate what she did. Of course, gender wars that somehow got involved in this are sad, sad thing.

(I won't lazy to say) The title of this discussion have to change in the future, so people who read this will know that sleeping stuff is NOT the focus of the discussion. And I still don't like how you present the opening post Shadow. It sounds (and read) like the focus of this matter is the girl, and you intended to pitch-forked and hang her in a pole.

1. At least Kotaku was shamed into doing one thing right.

Not really. They created a rule that they won't bother to enforce unless it is brought to their attention by a gigantic s***storm, which it won't be because nobody can lawfully obtain access to the information needed to confirm a violation.

She, herself, confirmed on twitter that she still is.

One thing I worry about is that protest that may or may not happen at PAX. After all the things I've seen going on the past week, I seriously worry about the safety of anyone who ends up protesting there.

Whether you agree with one side or another, it's clear that some sites unrelated to gaming are gathering social media support to harass and send threats to anyone who's going after this issue judging by the people who've never talked about video games in their lives now twitter bombing various accounts like JonTron who's getting it real bad simply for saying he didn't like her early in the week.

And this is Seattle, too. If word gets out that you're some mysognist internet nerd oppressing some innocent female victim in Seattle and they think you don't really pose a physical threat, there's probably going to be an attack of some kind. That or a massive hazing like prank pulled.

And of course, if that happens they'll hide behind "freedom of speech does not mean freedom of consequences". It's not harassment when they do it.

https://twitter.com/TheQuinnspiracy/status/504426194578583552 We are definitely making an impact here. Phil Fish: "You dug your own grave Zoe, stop clawing at the coffin." Every tweet she posts is countered by even some of her own friends at this point. Christ he basically just said she's guilty.

Rob Simple wants more links and evidence, I gave him some of what we have, and F@pathy's (lol triggers mod notice) contribution was huge in that regard, but i'm not sure if we should just unload a prettied up version of the entire front page of this thread into the comments section of his article. More news sites are carrying the truth of this daily, we're definitely making some damn progress.

MundaneMatt chatting with Boxxy? About games. May or not talk about this stuff.

Edit: Some talk now about Anita Sarkeesian after hearing about her tweet about alleged harassment to her family or something:

"I think she's full of s***" - Boxxy.
