Advertisers are the customer. We're the product.

But the advertisers make money from us. If we're not visiting the site, they'll take their business elsewhere. We're not far off from customers.

Oh good, Phil Fish sent a statement to Destructoid "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE". You'll never guess what it is. Go on, guess, I dare you.

Archived link as to not give Dtoid any hits.


And surprise surprise it was posted by Johnathan Holmes who uses his opening paragraph to mock the idea of transparency. I used to think Johnathan was just a goof who liked to have fun with writing and talking about video games because it wasn't his job. Now I think he is an IRL troll who likes to piss people off at every opportunity.

Like someone on Twitter said, i was led to believe Adam Baldwin was an evil raving cokehead, but he seemed pretty well spoken and intelligent there.

Looks like they're now trying to hide their Patreon support... That solves the problem. It's not a conflict of interest if nobody knows about it, right?

wow this is a truly great article

http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/bitwise/2014/09/gamergate_explodes_gaming_journalists_declare_the_gamers_are_over_but_they.html


from slate lol but its legit good and presents a very solid argument


Not bad except for the "Jenn Frank unfairly singled out" part. Frank was called out because she claimed to be impartial yet wrote an article defending Quinn, had a prior relationship with both Quinn and her PR agent Maya Kramer, and funded Quinn's Patreon. She's not innocent in this, by any stretch.

yeah im aware, she claims she told the editor and decided it was not important... later they added it because of the backlash from the article and she received the blame?

She's sort of "collateral damage" but she also wrote a clearly sensationalist article to profit from a scandal at the heat of it, so i'm not entirely sympathetic .
