Freshly pulled site rankings.

Escapist goes up because they're allowed to talk about it. Gamerheadlines goes waaaay up.

Look at how low Gamasutra has fallen.

Gamasutra derserves to fall that low for having that guide on how games shouldn't be fun.

Haven't of Gamerheadlines, but they look really good. I'll tell /r/kotakuinaction to add them to the good list.

Why do people keep making up random words by taking a subject and adding "-gate" after it? Do they think they're clever?

Makes me completely stop taking the topic seriously. It sounds like middle school drama.

I used to think Anthony Burch and his sister Ashley were cool... Then next thing I know they're yelling about "CIS HET" on twitter...

"Oh... no..."

Now this... They're not doing their side any favors with the way they're handling things just like nobody on our side that resorts to threats and violence is helping OUR cause. Everyone should just take a breather, cool down and think logically before they make themselves look like ridiculous zealots. BOTH SIDES (though lately I've seen more calm/cool people on our side than the other side).

The calmer you can be while explaining how you feel, the more likely people are to take you seriously instead of dismissing it as raving lunacy.

It seems like the M.O. for most people on twitter is to try your hardest to insult the other person without understanding them and then when they object to it, block them and refuse to talk more (after all, you already said everything you wanted to say, who needs to say anything else?)

One tweet from a developer says "I can't believe they're using historical figures to legitimize themselves" as if the complaints aren't legit. The picture in question is: http://i.imgur.com/Rfq1WdH.png

I guess he didn't even bother to read the message in the picture. It's very relevant.

Picking a popular side and hurling insults at anyone who disagrees is the easy thing to do. Actual discussion and understanding requires thought and brainpower.

Guess which approach the internet prefers.

Lord Gaben should announce that half life 3 is in development and that it's a f2p mobile game.

That would practically kill #gamergate in an hour lol
