Just the list of things that are pro GamerGate should be enough to tell how much of a shitfest this is.

Why? This whole "scandal" is BS anyway.

The video sucked, btw.

Cracked was already on my shitlist well before it fell into the SJW rabbit hole, but David Wong ruined it beyond repair.

They're mad at her threatening people for not towing the party line as well as her "Gamers are dead" article, just one prominent example of her continued lack of respect for her customer base.

Here's hoping Kotaku and Polygon apologise and rectify their pitifully lax standards in light of this. Rock, Paper, Shotgun have been trying to milk their readers for money after they lost advertisers. This thing isn't going to go away until these people admit they fucked up, apologise and hopefully fire some of the worst offenders e.g. Grayson, Kuchera, Alexander. Then we might be able to have actual diversity and ethical standards amongst games journalists, rather than this cliquish, hostile, anti-consumer circle-jerk that's been operating over the past few years.

Then we can use that momentum to tackle the bigger fish. Retards like this:

Well threatening people is obviously bad but I liked her article.

What does that Call of Duty idiot have to do with the GamerGate stuff? He seems like an asshole but I don't see the connection

Well gamers, and Intel it would seem, weren't too enthused by being insulted.

It's tangentially related, in the sense that most gamers are sick of being sold shite products. It started with a small segment of gaming, sparked by the Quinnspiracy, the Streisand effect kicking in and the a segment of the games media trying to foist an agenda on their readers. But the resentment is much broader than that. We've been criticised by anti-GGers and the outlets we're currently campaigning against for not focusing on the real problem, that is Triple AAA devs/publishers throwing lavish parties for journalists, giving them free shit etc and the general contempt which they repeatedly show to their customers. This individual is a recent, particularly unpleasant example of a dynamic that has not escaped out attention.

Gaming is a bizarre medium in the latitude given to creators, publishers, vendors etc. If I buy pretty much any product and its defective, I can take it back and get a refund. With video games I either don't have such a recourse, or I have to expend far more effort. I haven't met a gamer who isn't sick of buggy games, absent features etc and I think that once the war with Kotaku et al is resolved successfully, many of us will switch our attention to those corporations that sell products not fit for purpose, repeatedly lie to consumers and bribe/pressure game journalists to hype up their crap.
