Your thoughts on Gamergate
#11
RE: Your thoughts on Gamergate
Anita sarkesian was on the scene for years before gamer gate and as far as i am concerned is a snake oil salesmen that has nothing to do with the ethics debate, and is tangentially involved because of her kick starter scam, where she is what 4 years over due on the completation of her project that she took several hundred grand for and is right now 2/5s complete. Plus the fact her videos are poorly researched and full of bland assertions. Basically the same arguments they 10 years ago except replace violence with sexism. And yes when you are fucking someone who mentions your game, it is proper ethics to have the writer either recuse themselves or atleast disclose it. Care to name that female reviewer? And I'm still waiting for those websites. And agian look at the current convos going on the only times she is ever mentioned is when people are explaining how it started, or sometimes her current work with con. Beyond that, its true she doesn't matter she is princep of gamergate.
Also I never said she had to, not her job. You claimed she did and I corrected you, it was actually Nate greyson's job to do that when he mentioned her game. That is why she doesn't matter, Nate Greyson and people like are the ones that matter, the gamesjournopro list is what matters, the gamers are dead declaration where 10 publications put the same article on the same day is what matters.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Oh and BTW, Nate Greyson did not get a free pass, but the reason Zoe herself got hit so hard was because people bringing her up saying that people looking for ethical accountability were sexist.

Newer article agian focused on Grayson that reveal more ethical violations, including the fact is credited in depression quests development as a tester.

RE: Your thoughts on Gamergate
What you seem to be missing is that:
#1. Nathan Grayson NEVER wrote a fucking review of her game
and
#2. When Nathan Grayson even mentioned her, he wasn't fucking her at the time. (This was mentioned by her ex-boyfriend) Of course you'll move the goal posts next, I'm sure.

Somehow you've missed that in ALL of this. Just like the GamerGaters do. It reminds me very much of the Christians on here who ignore everything that's inconvenient to them.

I don't have the website on hand (Not sure if it's still up or not, this WAS more than a year ago) But it was Carolyn Petit that they petitioned to get fired from Gamespot for her review of GTAV (the same review that she gave a 9 to...) these are the same types of people who went on to support GamerGate. They're mainly Anti-SJW's. If that's what you are, that's fine. But no need to hide behind the whole "JOURNALISTIC ETHICS" stuff.

And that mailing list? Do you realize how many mailing lists most journalists are part of? Many of them are part of mailing lists. MOST people realize just how harmless that mailing list is, and how small of a deal it is. At least anyone who knows much about journalism.

RE: Your thoughts on Gamergate
I didn't move the goalposts once, I just said he mentioned her game, which he did. He was even credited on the game which he gave very favorable coverage to. The fact that your defending the mailing list after the gamers are dead incident though speaks a lot about your position. As for Carolyn Petit I have not heard of this incident before and will look into it.
I will also even concede you this. Gamergate is similar to Christianity in much the same way atheism as a movement is, its not a homogeneous group. And as such you have division and not everyone always supports the same thing. Some in gamergate are very anti-sjw some might even be mra's, some are feminists, some are pro-feminist anti racists, and like any large enough groups some are just fucking morons.
