Yea, that's a good idea. Dump money on lawyers to do nothing important.

What's hilarious, is that the legal wording on the page could mean they represent either side of gamergate. Just because they say they'll focus on the IFC doesn't mean that's what the entirety of their research will consist of.

They could just very well take all the evidence, destroy it, protect this "indie royalty" clique and their journalist pals, and it'd still fulfill what the indiegogo campaign describes.

Granted, I didn't watch the video.

Sure they could really be trying to help the cause, but then like someone said before, they could also be doing it.. ahem.. "FOR FREE".

If it's legit I hope it goes through, funded or not. If not (funded), I hope it comes to light (it probably will).

Or, we could read the last page.

Mostly due to the conflict of interest with the husband and wife.

If they plan on restarting this, I do hope that they're more forthcoming with us and give us every detail before begging for money. But I kinda hope they don't resort to that again.

Wait, did the Guardian just fire Jenn Frank? Are the SJWs finally being affected?


She didn't get fired... she quit. Supposedly she offered to disclose her friendship and the guardian's legal team didn't think it was necessary.

I just got done reading all of this on twitter...

Basically she quit over the controversy.

Does that mean she quit because she realized she wasn't being impartial or because people were harassing her over twitter?

Most likely scenario was that she was given the option to walk or be fired so The Guardian could salvage as much from this debacle they could.

Yeah that was my first thought. I just wanted to know what was her spin on it.
