    The only facts you fools have are the calories count of the giant tub of cheese puffs you all keep by your keyboards. Anyway who's annoyed? I'm deliriously curious about these character assassin's that were sent by the syndicate to discredit you warriors of truth and justice. Tell me more.

    Nice strawman.

    Perhaps you could inform yourself and start by reading the ZoePost and the "Gamers are dead" articles.

    In their never ending quest for attention it appears gamergaters, the loneliest and saddest men of men, photoshopped a Sikh critic of their amusing "movement" to make it look like he was one of the Paris terrorists.

    Link

    The doctored photo was even picked up by several media outlets.

    [​IMG]



    The guy has previously left Twitter once already due to harassment from gamergaters.

    Hopefully this doesn't make @BeamMe 's head explode because a man getting harassed online is going way too far.

    Ethics in journalism!

    Name the topic and there will be trolls on the internet both for and against it so stop trying to pretend your special topic is any different. Most people realize this, put their big boy pants on, and just delete the hate mail they receive.

    Though, I guess, a select few have made a career out of crying about it because they think they are such a special little snow flake. It just strikes me as stupid.

    Evidence?

    Ethics in journalism indeed!
    No one checked the authenticity of the image nor the identity of the person pictured.
    Yeah, journalism surely scored an own goal here.

    You think your puny evidence can stop me, GooberGraper?!?! The Paris attacks happened on August 12! A Daily Beast article said so, and the media would never, ever, ever, print a lie!

    I buy maybe one or two games per year so I am hardly a gamer. I just find the arguments made on both sides but especially the SJWs to be laughable.

    I am oppressed because of something in a video game even though I have to contort it and break the rules to make it happen! Now give me money. Oh, somebody on the internet didn't like my youtube video now give me more money!

    Let's be honest and admit they are both idiots though one side really is dumber than the other. The feminists champion these dumb asses would do better arguing against Muslims who believe they get to rape all infidel women because God told them it was ok. Yet they seem to think a video game is the worst thing in the world. Their priorities are screwed up.

    Sure, blame the idiots who created the image - but then, what can be expected from those who take Gawker and Vice seriously.

    I mean, why should we expect from our news media to fact-check and verify the information they put out there.

    It's pathetic to see the media put the blame on others for their own lack of basic journalistic efforts.
    These idiots today would probably buy the "Hitler diaries" again, too.

    And, btw, this blacktric guy is anything but a #GamerGate supporter (he was, over a year ago); these days he falls into the camp of the likes of @Ten Lubak it seems. From the article.
    Vice -- reading comprehension fail.

    The headline I would write for this would be "Controversial journalist whines someone on the internet was mean to him."

    Yep, that is about all that deserves.

    I saw this on another website and thought I would drop it here to see what people thought.
    ------------------------

    There is a big issue with the new wave of feminism (fourth wave?) that many have noticed:

    What are their main concerns all of a sudden? Is it really reproductive rights? Actually, it isn't. Now they are about:

    Fat acceptance
    Women in video games are too sexualized
    Cat calling
    Trigger warnings

    Etc etc.

    In other words, feminism today is not about any real issue that can be addressed by laws, but is merely a bunch of angry women projecting their own personal issues into their ideology. And most of these women are middle-class white women with a whole boat load of first world problems.

    Islamic issues with women is not a first world issue, and hence today's campus social justice warriors have no concern for it. They will never say the real reason they don't care about female genital mutilation (i.e., it never happened to them personally) but instead they will ignore the topic and whine and complain about men saying "hi" to them on the street or the fact that there are no super-models who are as overweight as they are, making them feel bad.

    Feminism is dead. It has devolved from actual concern for women's issues into a bunch of entitled brats screaming about being "triggered" and making a political movement out of their own personal issues. They would rather crusade to have the definition of rape changed to include the consensual sex they regretted after they got dumped then to do something actually constructive, like maybe helping the sex slaves being held by ISIS as we speak.

    This is modern feminism...





    Yeah.

    All is see there is a guy who was with gamergate and knows gamergate calling it exactly what it is - a bunch of crazy zealots.

    :lol: Well done, thanks for letting me know that!

    Chatting with you losers is so entertaining.

    So, the picture was now posted by an anti-GamerGater -- but in your view it is GamerGate that's at fault.
    The press failed to do their job -- but in your view it is GamerGate that's at fault.

    Got it.

    You've abandoned all critical thinking, haven't you?

    You're mistaking this for something that should be taken seriously.

    It isn't taken seriously.

    You gamergaters aren't taken seriously.

    All you're good for is a laugh.

    Your boy, Blacktrick or whatever the fuck - he identifies as a gamergator in the tweet you linked to btw:

    "I don't want gamergate heard because I think it's mostly comprised of retarded zealots like you who give us a bad name."

    Emphasis on us.

    Yet, here you are bringing this up in the first place, trying to blame a group that isn't responsible.

    Goodness me.
    You are just as stupid as those idiots at Vice and Gawker. You fail at reading ("us" refers to gamers that don't align themselves with GamerGate), and you fail at comprehending that he quite some time ago left GamerGate.

    You are a fountain of dumb.

    But let's look at this again: that guy was a GGer, then he left and--like you--started to insulted them, then he posted that picture linking it to the Paris attacks, then the media picked that pic up and ran with it without checking their facts... and the drooling braindead mumble "GamerGate. GamerGate's fault."


    It really doesn't matter who posted that picture, anyway. The news-media didn't do their jobs. It's that simple. Ethics, indeed.

    Hey Lubak, after you got shown up you are now claiming it was nothing serious but if that was true why were you crowing about it like it was some sort of victory earlier? :chris:

    Why is @Ten Lubak tldr repping my posts from this thread that has been dead for almost 4 years? That is some serious dedication buddy and perhaps some of your friends might want to do an intervention. This is dim bulb levels of repping and no one should ever go full fleshlight.

    I know, I did say that, and you came back with some great love of thirty tldr reps from that one comment. I am pretty sure even flashy has stopped spam repping me after all these years.

    You get the blue ribbon for being the most dedicated fanboy I have ever seen. People tell me I am not a master troll, but has anyone else gotten years of dedication of spam repping from a person like @Ten Lubak ? Flashy did it to everyone, but that dedication you have to logging on pretty much every day to find my posts just to click on that rep button is epic. Don't think I have not noticed. Anyone who wants to look at my tldr numbers should know that is probably 95 percent you, and that is a conservative number.

    Keep it going, I am sure no one is going to stop you, because no one gives that much of a fuck about you and your obsession. However, I appreciate it.

    One neg rep for that? Maaaannn... I can do better. Here's some neg rep worthy stuff:

    GamerGate, huh? GamerGate was 100% about journalism ethics, which is why essentially none of discussion was about journalists acting unethically and mostly slut shaming Zoe Quinn and criticizing how she looks. Because, an independent game developer allegedly bribing journalists with sex is totally exponentially more unethical than journalists allegedly accepting said bribe. It also definitely wasn't about an ex possibly lying for revenge, because people never get pissed off at their exes and lie about shit to publicly shame them.

    For the record, I think Zoe Quinn is cute. Fight me.

    Neg rep me, bitches!
