I deleted my previous post in order to avoid moderation,

point was : Guardian editor defends Zoey and is subsequently proven to personally fund her in a private website.

Conflict of interest? You decide...

Don't forget that Zoe's PR agent personally funds said editor, as well.

Looks like The Guardian decided to amend that "article" with a disclaimer at the bottom.

Update: Jenn Frank has purchased and is a supporter of Zoë Quinn’s work, although this is the first article she has written on the developer. Frank has also briefly met Anita Sarkeesian.

Hooray for "journalistic integrity"

If you see hateful, harassing speech, take a public stand against it and make the gaming community a more enjoyable space to be in.

We are doing that, it's the so called "gaming journalists" who are attacking the gamers.

Case in point:

“Gamer” isn’t just a dated demographic label that most people increasingly prefer not to use. Gamers are over. That’s why they’re so mad.

These obtuse s***slingers, these wailing hyper-consumers, these childish internet-arguers -- they are not my audience. They don’t have to be yours. There is no ‘side’ to be on, there is no ‘debate’ to be had.

Well if it hasn't been posted yet Phil Fish is back on Twitter.

https://twitter.com/PHIL_FlSH

unsurprisingly several tweets are missing.


Of course he's back. He only deleted it because he thought that would get him more attention. He'll have another tantrum shortly.

Remember to keep watching him...Follow him and send him some nastygrams on twitter... that's what he wants after all. LOTS of attention.

I don't understand. Someone please explain how people can be so.... insane. I can't believe these people actually believe any of the crap they spew. It must be a huge elaborate joke, right? Are they brainwashed or what? Normally I can get a good laugh out of stupidity, but this is something else. It's gone beyond funny, and dived right into disgusting.

I guess if there's anything good that came out of this, it's that I learned that I hate women. Apparently. I mean, I never thought I did before, but everyone keeps telling me I'm a misogynist. All those times I disagreed with my mother or my sisters, it was just my hate for them showing itself. You know, fair enough, I chose to be a gamer, it's something I chose to do, and therefore I'm at fault for being a misogynist. At least no one considers me a terrible person simply for being a heterosexual white male.

I would edit my post, were my level high enough, but it's not so sorry for the double post.

Does anyone have any examples of people on the other side sharing their opinions in a calm way? Instead of basically every post in that link? Surely there's gotta be someone out there on the other side who can actually have a calm a discussion about the topic.

Check out @MissAngerist tweets and twitlongers. I convinced her to help out by spreading the word after she finally saw the people she was defending weren't the good guys.

If you meant people on the other side who still defend their agenda, but in a calm way, then I haven't seen any.

^ you'll come to find out a large portion, half or more are probably males. The one's stoking the fire with fuel are probably under 17, and the one's who are aiming for an outcome to be older than 21. This is for both parties.

You making blanket statements like all sjw (can we stop with that dumb term now?) are all females, it's as bad as saying all gamers are misogynists.

I think what we'll begin to see here is the understanding that the internet is a genderless entity.

I'm sure many females have been grouped under the "misogynist abuisve psychopathic neckbeard basement welling domestic terrorist gamer flag" to which their response is usually, "that'd be really funny because...." [they are a woman], as much as men have been misrepresented as "butch feminazi amazonian self-righteous freedom fighters of social justice".

What's also weird is apparently the internet is ageless as well. In any other forum, a 15 year old kid making allegations meant solely to incite disputes (trollin) or stoking the fire by adding fuel to it would NEVER be taken seriously when presented at face value to the public at large, but behind the mask of anonymity, they are able to speak on behalf of everyone, and thus their statements have the potential to carry as much weight as others.

But what do I know? I'm just a 300 year old dog typing on a computer/laptop/phone/ipod/console/palmpiliot/blackberry..
