Way too often when Gamergate comes up, the anti-Gamergaters go, "But...harassment, doxxing...DEATH THREATS!", as if those are trump cards that discredit GG and the issues they represent. It makes a nice deflection. Or would, if it were one sided...

Well...so much for that.

People suck. Especially in the anonymity granted in the internet age. So bearing that in mind, lets stay on the issues themselves, k?

You are to GamerGate what LightRider is to Bitcoin. You realize that, right?

To be honest, the original issues aren't very compelling for discussion. It was the whole people-sucking after-party that led to good discussions.

Well, for me personally, the compelling part is just one more example of passive-aggressive leftwing activists going off the deep end and targeting aspects of culture they don't like and attempting to reshape it according to their will.

You see it going on in the GG, Atheism+, comic book industry, explosions like Shirtstorm, etc etc. Create a non-existent crisis, amp up the drama and slander those who may take an opposing view.

In the case of GG, going on about the apparent tactics of those you oppose, try to use said tactics to define the movement as a whole...yet others on your side employing the same tactics. But trying to act like that does not happen.

That irritates me. I was neutral on the issue until I found out about that part.

Again? What is this? The 15th thread in RSP to rehash the issues with no one able to see any common ground? We really needed another one? 'K.

Thy mercy, my God, is the theme of my song, the joy of my heart and the boast of my tongue. Thy free grace alone, from the first to the last, has won my affection and bound my soul fast.

You're getting this confused with rape jokes.

Actually most of the time, Gary is just posting about another variation on the same set of arguments. He does a better job of it than Trey. At least he's polite.

With Gary, at least you know he's had a high school education and is probably wearing shoes. So a certain base level of communication is possible.

I think almost everyone have moved on from this. All of those links you posted are months old. I think you're the one with a non-existent crisis.

I understand that there is still one dude who wants to talk about how awesome FF is and how terrible GG is, but honestly nobody else here gives a fuck about this fucking bullshit.

I'll make sure to run all these by you next time. Since, like, that hardly ever happens around here.

Poop is poop. The advantage of it being a little old is that it is easier to pick up.

The downside is that we can smell you from a mile off.

Don't be gross. And I said it in a classy way. All polished and shiny.
