I listened to that huffingtonpost stream with Brianna Wu and god she's kind of an idiot. Her opponent brought specific comparisons and pointed to specific articles in the law and all she could counter with is "You're wrong because I say so".

 

Note for potential idiots: No, this doesn't mean she deserved death threats.

Links please.

Kain made one good point in his rather useless visit, Twitter is awful for a discussion. Apparently Wu crushed GamerGate in that video...seemed a whole lot of nothing to me.

R/kotakuinaction seems to think Hotwheels did rather good considered he got 3 minutes of air time and Brianna got 9. He is also doing AMA at reddit now:

What part crushed GamerGate? The part where she literally came out and said "yes there are ethics problems in the game industry and I've been talking about it on my show for years" to completely validate the entire thing?

Beats me, but that is the buzz I am reading. Also the last line about "8chan isn't all about you" was offensive...er somehow. People are weird.

Morning update from twitter

 

Here article from Social Researcher who analyses in the article why "#Gamergate, as we know it now, is a hate group."

http://jezebel.com/gamergate-trolls-arent-ethics-crusaders-theyre-a-hate-1644984010

 

That is as much as objective as to asking Von Däniken why the US government is hiding UFOs. 

 

Is it to much to ask for a sociology scholar/professor, with no previous affiliation with feminism, to conduct some research?

 

 

But do we now dismiss any opinions from feminists as "automatically biased " ?

 

Any opinion expressed on the Internet Twitter is automatically dismissed.

So I watched the entire thing.

 

1. Wu had more time to talk than either Erik or Hotwheels but managed to say less than either.

2. Erik Kain made his points clearly and came off as sensible.

3. From what I can tell, Hotwheels is right about the law. He is not legally responsible for the actions of those who post at his board.

4. Wu's warning to Hotwheels came off as threatening.

5. Hotwheels ****ing owned with that closer.

There is a place in the world where they have defeated internet harassment of at least one man. In the glorious republic of Astorska Belarus you can't use the internet anywhere without showing your passport and thus their radiant leader is protected from harassment.

I think SJWs wouldn't mind if they could run the internet like Belarus.

I am always so happy to read twitter in these days

 

Terrorist threats against Utah State University because they have Anita Sarkeesian as quest speaker in some of their events. Article writer of course remembers to link that threat to GamerGate.

TotalBiscuit has recover somewhat from his cancer treatments has come back to give defensive voice for gamergate.

I'm speechless. Maybe Gamers didn't die, maybe journalism did.

 

I mean put the context aside. Pretend this isn't about GamerGate and SJWs, pretend it's an article about Crips vs. Bloods. I still don't think there's any reason for such undeniable bias from a JOURNALIST, flaunting an opinion in the most hyperbolized, factual fashion imagineable. This might be the single most bias and terribly unethical article to date....and what's scary is it's not even from a gaming journalist with an already terrible reputation, who we'd EXPECT this kind of **** from...

Has anyone noticed that few if any "legitimate" media sites mention the Gamers are Dead articles, which IMO are what turned this from a tiny internet spat into what it is now?

- I wish the media would realize that the "media censorship and corruption is a myth" claim can only be credibly made if you're willing to actually discuss those allegations instead of flat-out ignoring them and that doing so directly plays into the narrative of the group they decry.

 

 

What exactly are the allegations?
