Prominent PC indie developer in bed with gaming journalists, and other devs Pt.2
The word, "gamer", signifies a person who plays games. It's a hobby for a lot of people. Men and women of all colors. A form of entertainment, like tv or music, or whatever. Some just play them to blow off steam. How exactly would they associate the word with "white male" and "abusers"?
This whole "end gamers" PR move is going to prove disastrous for all the idiots feeding into it.
Just saw a small blurb on MSN about about how gamers have to combat online abuse and bullying.
it's kinda a bs "article" calling it a sidenote would be more appropriate
it has a one line comment about online harassment of developers and and personalities.
then continues with the normal inane whining you would expect from people the "can't we all just get along" mentality that permeates the massmedia.
I hate Lightning.

That's a different thing. Jon wanted to do livestream by himself, but changed his mind when he realized that the SJW's are just to crazy to reason with.

A freaking kotaku writer teaching us morals... Oh my god the irony.

He still had a part in the livestream where he discussed Anita S. and Feminists and how if you're male white and straight you automatically are discounted from having an opinion on the matter end of story.
However, It took a long LONG time to get there. I watched it up to that point but they blathered on about a lot of junk until they got to it and then they kinda went off on a bunch of tangents... it wasn't worth the wait.
That statement is about as neutral as it could possibly get. Don't forget that people like Brad Wardell are also being harassed and having pictures of his house and address posted even by indie developers.

I'm right about everything, every time. 60% of the time.

I was talking about a stream that Jon wanted to do back then this whole thing started.

Isn't that a crime? Have the police done anything about that?

He wrote an article about death threats and how it's nothing new... also he says that most of the time it's from someone who isn't even a part of the group. That person just saw something that set him off and now he's writing hate mail.
If these online death threats are real, they may very well be from some nutjob who doesn't have anything better to do with their time. It could also be a fake death threat meant to discredit the opposing group. I hope they find the one who is making these threats and lock em up.
