Operation Canadian BaCon II: GamerGate Vs. The CBC Boss Battle (Coming Summer 2019)

After several months (if not years) of absence from 8chan and making cryptic comments about some mysterious new OP I had planned on social media, I've finally managed to gather enough preliminary information to tell you guys what I've been up to.

A QUICK RUNDOWN OF GAMERGATE'S BATTLE WITH THE CBC (CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION)

Summary of the past four years of drama:

- In November 2014, I filed a complaint with the CBC Ombudsman concerning a news segment they did on GamerGate and eventually went all the way to the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) to ask them to investigate.

- After the filing of numerous additional complaints about each new hit piece that came out, the CBC Ombudsman eventually decided to unofficially classify me as something akin to a "vexatious complainant" in July 2015 and ignore me from then on, saying that "[their] answer will be the same as it has been in the past". Way to show an open mind and willingness to reevaluate your position in light of new evidence like a proper journalist, Enkin. Pierre Tourangeau, her counterpart at the French-Canadian version of the CBC, Radio-Canada, did something similar to a friend associate of mine Mug33k while essentially accusing him of trying to weaponize the office of the ombudsman.

- December 2015, the CRTC closed GamerGate's case, having coming to the conclusion that the CBC "did not violate their existing regulatory policy framework". However, the director of social and consumer policy, Nanao Kachi, immediately opened a new case on GamerGate's behalf, asking the CBC to address all of the allegations information that I'd submitted to them up until that point in time. The CBC, however, despite numerous pokes and prods over the next two and a half years or so, refused to respond or even acknowledge receipt of the complaint, thus not only snubbing me but also thumbing their nose at the CRTC, which is part of the CANADIAN GOVERNMENT.

Flash forward to February 2018.

After theee years of not being able to give me any definitive answers, one of our caseworkers at the CRTC finally managed to unravel some of the red tape and informed me that the CBC apparently couldn't ignore me indefinitely and would need to address all outstanding complaints by the time their broadcasting license was up for renewal, which, as it turns out, is currently set to expire on August 31, 2019, just a few days after GamerGate's fifth anniversary. In a follow-up e-mail late last week, I was provided with some additional information,. While I haven't had a chance to sit down to read through everything yet, here're a few points of interest so far:

- The proceeding for the CBC's broadcast license renewal will be public (which is unsurprising, considering that the CBC is a crown corporation, i.e. a state-owned enterprise funded by a billion dollars in taxpayer money annually) and likely take place in September 2019.

- Public participation is encouraged, meaning that ordinary Canadian citizens, either as part of a group or as individuals, can submit comments, concerns, complaints, suggestions, etc. in the form of interventions.

- submitting studies, with a probable deadline of mid-July 2019.

- All interventions will be taken into consideration by the CRTC while making their decision.

- An online consultation will be held concerning the proceedings sometime during the Summer of 2019.

- "Balance in news reporting" and "complaints from the public" have been considered important issues in the past

- An "active contribution to the flow and exchange of cultural expression" and "contributing to shared national consciousness and identity" are important to the Canadian Broadcasting Act.

- The CRTC can impose conditions on the CBC for the renewal of their broadcast license.

The #GamerGate Beginner's Guide and FAQ Thread

What are #GamerGate and #NotYourShield?

#GamerGate is a hashtag and quasi-"movement" of gamers around the world that began in August of 2014. #NotYourShield is a sister hashtag, created to lend a greater voice to female and minority gamers who supported #GamerGate and who were dismissed and ignored by the games media.

The #GamerGate Twitter hashtag was originally coined by actor Adam Baldwin in response to the mass censorship of gaming sites occurring around the so-called "Burgers and Fries" scandal. This scandal concerned the public discovery that a little known indie game developer named Chelsea Van Valkenburg (nomme de plume Zoe Quinn) had cheated on her boyfriend with a journalist from the gaming site Kotaku and four other people in the games media industry. Gamers around the 'net took an immediate interest in the scandal, because Kotaku had already attracted some attention for giving Quinn's game, Depression Quest, unusually positive coverage. Suspicion of industry relationships and quid-pro-quo favors among the videogames industry and press had been going on for years, and it seemed that a smoking gun had finally been found.

To the shock of the gaming communities however, a wave of censorship descended across the topic like an iron curtain. Every prominent games forum on the 'net banned discussion of the scandal, and just one single thread on Reddit saw over forty thousand comments deleted. Even 4chan, the once legendary site where you could discuss almost anything, banned people from discussing the issue. The games media declared that there was no scandal, and "nothing to see here." When this was challenged, the response came in the form of a nonsensical accusation that gamers interested in the topic were misogynists, and only interested because the subject of scrutiny was a woman's relationship. The public's concern about improprieties in the games media industry were not just dismissed - they were utterly silenced. In response, gamers created their own communities on Reddit and 8chan with a special emphasis on free speech and activism.

The censorship campaign sparked even further public backlash, and the situation grew more heated until August 27th and 28th of 2014, when thirteen major games media sites released a series of articles now known colloquially the "Gamers Are Dead" articles. Beginning with author Leigh Alexander of Gamasutra, these articles all shared identical messaging and tone, and united to form a simple, political, and utterly untrue statement: "Gamers, as a demographic and hobby, are all sexist, misogynist, racist, horrible people and the games industry should discount them as an audience."

The gamer community immediately recognized this as a deflection tactic. For so many competing publications to attack gamers with such a unified voice almost simultaneously, there had to exist exactly the sort of back-door collusion within the industry that gamers had long suspected. Indeed, months later a man named William Usher, owner of the gaming site One Angry Gamer, would work with Breitbart reporter Milo Yiannoupolis to expose the existence of the "GameJournoPros" mailing list to the world. Patterned off of "Journo-List" of mainstream media fame, this was a secret mailing list where major names in the games media colluded to craft narratives, blacklist industry people, support their industry friends, and decide what stories needed to be spread or buried at their whim.

The united backlash by the global gamer community against this dishonest media campaign became the event known to the world as #GamerGate.

Comics Thread

Comics stuff:

Marvel VP of sales has recently acknowledged muh diversity is the reason for sales going down the toilet, pretty much laying the blame on the readers:

>What we heard was that people didn't want any more diversity. They didn't want female characters out there. That's what we heard, whether we believe that or not. I don't know that that's really true, but that's what we saw in sales.

One Angry Gamer article: http://www.oneangrygamer.net/2017/04/marvel-exec-acknowledges-sales-tanking-after-focusing-on-sjw-topics/27748/

chive OAG weekly recap incl Marvel guff: http://archive.fo/UdqyA

chive of OAG link -ICV2 interview: https://archive.is/twXzy

Meanwhile CBR (Comic Book Resources) has 'dug deeper' saying it's not about diversity something somthing white men something:

>Just to be clear, “diversity” has very little to do with the drop in sales in Marvel’s top 10 books. Only three (“The Mighty Thor,” “Invincible Iron Man” and “Black Panther”) can be considered “diverse,” in that they star a lead character who is a woman or a person of color. The rest are series starring white male heroes or teams made up predominantly of white male heroes. These are Marvel’s traditional A-list heroes, being written and drawn by A-list writers and artists (almost all of whom are themselves white men), and yet they are floundering.

http://archive.is/08Mli

Unsurprisingly Tor Books says it's not diversity to blame either something something score points for sjw article bingo:

https://archive.li/1BIgz

>they’re almost always white cishet men

Also:

>The more the Big Two seek to control expression and discussion, both on the page and online, the more they drive creators to small presses, indie publishers, and self/web publishing.

This coming from Tor SciFi + Fantasy Gatekeeping Inc.

>When you look at the sales figures, the only way to claim diversity doesn’t sell is to have a skewed interpretation of “diversity.” Out of Marvel’s current twenty female-led series, four series—America, Ms. Marvel, Silk, and Moon Girl—star women of color, and only America has an openly queer lead character. Only America, Gamora, Hawkeye, Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! (cancelled), are written by women. That’s not exactly a bountiful harvest of diversity. Plenty of comics starring or written by cishet white men get the axe over low sales, but when diversity titles are cancelled people come crawling out of the woodwork to blame diverse readers for not buying a million issues. First, we are buying titles, just usually not by the issue. Second, why should we bear the full responsibility for keeping diverse titles afloat? Non-diverse/old school fans could stand to look up from their longboxes of straight white male superheroes and subscribe to Moon Girl.

>why should we bear the full responsibility for keeping diverse titles afloat?

Probably cos that's what you're into and it's a niche market . . .

. . . but let's blame someone else! -

>Non-diverse/old school fans could stand to look up from their longboxes of straight white male superheroes etc

>True diversity is letting minority creators tell their own stories

They omit the 'providing they support the Narrative' clause.

>letting

Did I read that right?

GAWKER IS DEAD, LONG LIVE GAWKER

http://archive.is/crpNN

>Peter Thiel is getting closer to his goal: Gawker Media has filed for bankruptcy protection and says it eventually plans to find a new owner for the company.

>Gawker and owner Nick Denton are making the Chapter 11 filing today, in order to avoid paying Thiel and Hulk Hogan the $140 million judgment they won in Hogan’s privacy trial earlier this year.

>Gawker has told it employees it still plans to fight the Thiel/Hogan case and to operate its publishing business while it does so. But it is also now formally entertaining offers to buy the company and says it has a firm bid from publisher Ziff Davis to buy the entire operation for less than $100 million.

>(Update: In a memo to employees, Ziff Davis CEO Vivek Shah says his company has an "asset purchase agreement" to buy seven Gawker titles, and says there is a "tremendous fit between the two organizations." It is worth noting that while Shah's memo says he intends to buy Gawker.com, he doesn't list the site when describing Ziff Davis' plans to integrate Gawker Media's other sites.

Sure feels good.

>This is my cover letter.

>Randi Lee Harper

>Dec 6·

>I’ve been job searching for the past few months. Kind of quietly, because I’m in a really weird position. I’m crowdfunded, and although my field is somewhat niche, the duties involved are very broad and multi-disciplined. I’ve been doing this for a while. I really like it!

However, money is running low

>and there are things I really miss about working with a team within an organization. I also really miss engineering. A lot. I get to do tech work with my current position, but it’s not the same. I don’t get to collaborate. There’s no people to talk to on coffee breaks. There’s no one around to give their input or brainstorm solutions. It’s really lonely work, and I’m so ready to not be doing this anymore.

>This is a very difficult thing to measure, but I know this for a certainty — every medium post I’ve written on the subject of abuse has had a major impact and caused policy and feature changes. That’s a really big thing. Huge.

>I won’t ever be giving up on abuse research. But this doesn’t mean I need to work on it as a primary function of my job. If I find a gig that utilizes my unique skillset in that area, rad! But I’d be just as happy in a syseng or dev job or even PM or something community facing.

>So, here’s what is important to me.

>I don’t want to leave Portland. I’m perfectly willing to travel up to 75% of the time, but my home base needs to be here. Due to my current work, I’ve got some security concerns. These concerns are completely addressed as long as I stay in Portland. Moving is a very big deal. I’m not unwilling to move, but it would be complicated, it would take time, and I’d have a few stipulations. I’m good at working from home. I self manage very well. Let me keep doing this.

>I know that even in smaller companies, every team has it’s own problems. Be straight with me, and if there’s something significant, tell me what those problems are. Tell me how you plan on fixing any problems that might drive away good talent. I’ll listen.

>I will continue working on abuse research when I’m not on the clock. I’m going to continue helping people that come to me. I will continue to speak publicly. I will continue doing exactly what I am currently doing, just on a much more time restricted basis. This is non-negotiable.

I'm an oldschool indie dev and when FIVE GUYS (rhymes with five eyes) hit I saw the dev community basically destroyed. It makes a tonne of sense that the whole thing was a literal psyop.

Except for the spineless faggots who were willing to play along with the media-backed SJW social conditioning shit, and the guys who were too big to die (and even notch went into hibernation for a while before re-emerging with testicles), the designer community basically dissolved overnight. Personally I deleted all my social media because everyone I'd previously respected fell to infighting and retardation.

Ethical and/or good companies to support, and possibly bad ones to avoid

Saw a thread on AMD on /v/ and that just kinda reminded me about this sort of shit.

I feel that a thread should be made on this sort of thing, as what GG should be doing now that journo's influences have been vastly diminished, is convincing people to become ethical consumers. To be vocal with companies that they are middling in their feelings towards, to not buy anything from a company that has thrown away their goodwill, and most importantly to support companies that are willing to be ethical, and/or support gamers and GG. Other good attributes:

>Anti-censorship

>Anti-DRM

>Quality products

>Ethical behavior

>Supports communities and fanmade projects

>listens to actual consumers, doesn't give SJWS any quarter

and whatever else you can think of. If its a limited market, just say why you should support the alternatives, or at the very least why you shouldn't support the biggest (and oftentimes most unethical) taker of said market. I'd recommend providing archives for claims that not everyone might not be aware of.

I'll start with my own general set-up, let's try to keep this gaming, internet and gaming-tech related to keep the focus narrow for now; other mediums can wait till we've established something good here:

Storefronts and Retailers

>Itch.io

Basically just an indie store that has no significant issues as far as I'm aware. No real problems. Good enough, worth keeping in your rotation of stores to check out.

>Humble Bundle

Now owned by IGN. Not the best, but it seems to be okay(?). No significant issues besides that but (like anything else on this list) if any anons wants to point out something wrong with it or why it might not be worth using be my guest

>GoG

Basically a Steam alternative. Not great, but DRM-free commitment and a lack of shovelware makes them better than Steam, and much less censorship present as well, though heavy curation is involved there. Best large alternative to Steam as far as I'm aware, as many other storefronts just sell Steam Keys.

>Play-Asia

Anti-censorship attitudes along with actually supporting Japan, they also seem to lean more towards GG and actually pander towards gamers. High-ish prices though, but they're worth using.

>Mangagamer

Basically the GoG of VN storefronts and whatnot. They are staunchly anti-censorship and have a better relationship with Nippon and fanslators than Sekai Project and other places. They also give larger cuts (citation needed) of the money than other alternatives like DL-site which is known to be hyper-jewy (but DL-site is the second-best one in this regard afaik)

Don't use Steam if you can avoid it -

<They have their own DRM

<They have censored numerous titles

<They have pushed for paid mods

<They have incredible amounts of power in terms of online gaming storefronts, you'd be contributing to a near-monopoly

Try not to use Amazon for obvious reasons

<Jeff Bezos is a slimeball

<Amazon owns WaPo which is aGGro as fuck and part of the media conglomerate

<largest online storefront, don't contribute to near-monopolies

<anti-Trump (not a real reason but its more of a litmus test in this case)

<up to general sketchy shit and takes over small companies all the time, like the online space's equivalent of a Wal-Mart

Ethical and/or Good Web Browsers

>Pale Moon

Doesn't track you, is open-source, isn't SJWFox who fucked up functionality with Firefox quantum and basically gave the middle-finger to their power users.

>Waterfox

Literally a fork of Firefox before quantum that works with all plugins and add-ons and whatnot. It uses Ecosia and is open-source

>Iridium

Don't know shit about it but its supposedly an unpozzed fork of Google Chrome(?)

Sketchy.

Don't use Chrome if you can. Google needs no explanation at this point if you can't figure this one out.

Don't use Firefox, they're on a quick and slippery slope down to SJW hell. Quantum and update 57 fucked over countless users and they don't give a flying damn about it.

Search Engines

>Searx.me

Good enough search engine, respects privacy, is open-source, no major issues found.

>Ecosia

Supports tree-planting. Uses Bing infrastructure which is kinda sketchy, doesn't datamine outside of what is pretty much required for a search engine to operate, seems reliable and "good enough" again.

>Startpage

basically anonymized google, use it if the others don't give good results. Good enough results.

Gaming Tech and Peripherals

Gonna need some help filling out this one, since I don't keep up with all the companies.

A lot of the situation with these are unknown for me, if anyone has more information on MSI, AMD Asus, Acer, EVGA, Nvidia, Razer, Intel, Dell, etc. it would be helpful.

(cont. in next posts because of the shit text limit)

>“When we have costumes or clothes that we have a little concern with, we share it with NoE and NoA and they’ll say, ‘No, no, that’s fine’ or ‘You’re right, that’s an issue.’ If it is an issue, we’ll go back and say we’ll say, ‘We adjusted it this way, what do you think?’ There’s a lot of back and forth in that sense. Rather than compromise, it’s like we’re all aiming for the same goal, of being able to provide a good experience for everybody in all regions. And we’re aiming to have a game that has very little difference between the regions.”

The language barrier has been used by SJWeebs and translators to tell Jap devs one thing, while another happens in the west.

In fact, a Jap politician had to point out in their parliament that the American MSM called the election so wrong that why should they trust their word on other matters.

We know that this is the start of a slow-boil tactic to be applied over generations to Japan (possible combined with Olympics to cuck and de-homogenize them) until they make the same shit western AAA currently do.

This isn't like South Korea who got lucky and managed to throw out their leader.

This isn't like America where their leader's mere existence is making the mouth-pieces so mad they're destroying 20 years of marxism.

This is a nation who aren't prepared for a concentrated effort to undermine them. And being the world is turning away from globalism- they will focus on new foot-holds.

What this OP entails or needs is unsure right now.

Pushing back against SONY's new censorship policies.

OP OUR LIFE OUR HOMETOWN

Our best option is a two pronged attack.

The first angle is delivering the redpills we've accumulated over the years to bilingual japs that can serve as vectors for disseminating our information. This should not be terribly difficult given the 5 alarm happening going on right now. Even though the otaku in Japan are absolutely not going to take this lying down, the possible end result of this being "no more lewd games outside japan" situation ala Rapelay is NOT benefical to us AT ALL contraty to how some anons may feel, as such a transpiration would still be a victory for SJWs. What we should be aiming for instead is encouraging jap devs to do the translations inhouse to bypass this faggotry.

twitter.com/yagyu4k and twitter.com/yaginuma_san are two good candidates for redpill vectors we already know about. Poke around the twitter threads where this censorship is being discussed, look for angry bilinguals and use this opportunity to give them infographics and archives that they can translate for non-english speaking nips. OP Timber stuff, hitpieces, backlashes against the hitpieces, the likely collusion with resetera. Whatever you share, make sure it gets the message across that these people do not speak on our behalf. And don't forget to spread things like https://www.change.org/p/sony-towards-sony-their-new-policies as well. (It's almost at 3K. Spread it to them and we can easily make this blow up even more.)

CAUSE: We want Japanese devs to not be forced to censor.

PLAN: Get in contact with bilingual jap devs to show support and spread info.

TOOL: Infographics and other distributables, archives, links (don't forget the wiki.)

TARGET: Affected devs and angry otaku.

The second angle is mockery, plain and simple. Convincing normalfags to boycott over titty games isn't going to have much effect. But while it's difficult to convince them to like something, it's very easy to convince them to hate something else instead. Remember the shitshow from the BF5 trailers and how expected pre-orders tanked down to 85% less than expected? Remember how much the memes and mockery played into that? These poz factories are not as unassailable as they appear. We need to take that approach to every single western release Soyny has lined up. ESPECIALLY TLoU2, as that (((game))) is going to be make or break in terms of hype vs. success and who the core audience is.

CAUSE: People in general hate socjus pandering.

PLAN: Make these games appear as generally unappealing as we possibly can. (We already do this, but believe more effort needs to be thrown towards this in general if we want western poz to die for good)

TOOL: Funny memes.

TARGET: Normalfags in general.

ResetEra digging thread

OP END THE ERA

Let's not delude ourselves any further. All of these setbacks that have come to pass in the past year almost perfectly coincides with the spawning of that cancerous tumor. We know that all the diehard Soyny shills migrated there. We know they eject dissenting thought from the site with impunity. All signs point to these faggots as one of the biggest causes of the returning cancer, if not THE biggest cause. But how this relationship works is still unclear. There have been partial, unfinished digs, but we haven't really gotten much info aside from that kiwifarms thread.

We need a final solution to these fags, so we need to get serious about getting a real digging operation going.

CAUSE: Resetera are censorius commie faggots and are likely one of the biggest contributors to the cancer this year.

PLAN: For now, gather information on the people involved in the forum and look for connections that cant be made.

TOOL: Typical digging practices. Possibly utilizing COINTELPRO tactics in their own hugbox.

TARGET: The community in general. Info gathering OP, so only a handful of targets right now. Keep an eye out for mods/admins and other individuals that are key to the community and archive and catalogue them.

Anti-Internet Censorship Database Operation

https://twitter.com/kr3at/status/806301894389956608

https://archive.is/OmtsY

Internet Censorship Database Announced By Google, Twitter, Facebook And Microsoft

Google, Twitter, Facebook and Microsoft will launch a shared database to censor social networks in 2017.

> The world’s largest social networks have announced plans to launch a shared Internet censorship database in 2017 that will be able to scrub anything that is labeled as “extremist content” across all of their social networks.

> Facebook already has a tool in place that they recently revealed they are in discussions with to provide China access to in order to gain access to China’s 1.4 billion citizens.

> Currently the tool is being touted as a weapon to fight terrorism and hate speech but just defining what speech falls under the topic is a slippery slope.

> Twitter and Reddit have recently been actively banning conservative content and Twitter has even threatened to ban President-elect Donald Trump for hate speech.

> It is also no secret that Governments have long openly banned political content that had nothing to do with extremism or hate such as Japan’s ban of Fukushima news and just recently Italy’s ban on reporting on the referendum ahead of last Sunday’s vote.

> The news comes as the United States and Europe governments are separately pushing Internet censorship legislation into law, which has largely been kept off the radar of corporate media news outlets.

> The goals of the separate legislation is to crack down on what the establishment is labeling as “fake news” being spread as part of a Russia propaganda conspiracy.

> In reality the vast majority of the news that will be censored under the new legislation is nothing more than non-corporate news outlets simply reporting on issues in a manner that is critical policies of the government and establishment politicians, and their hidden power players such as special interests and lobbyists, on matters such as globalization, oversea wars, environmental issues and corruption.

1. Spread News

Spread this into #FakeNews and Freedom of Speech groups.

If they're this scared, it means people are listening to "Fake News".

Later, a hashtag may need to be created. Work on getting warm bodies for now, and the # may come naturally.

2. Boycott & Shill Alternatives

On twitter, if you put $ before the stock code, it acts like a # but for just for stocks. It's used by shareholders.

> Microsoft $MSFT

> Twitter $TWTR

> Google $GOOGL

> Facebook $FB (I think, please verify)

If the people looking for stock info on these companies see all the boycotting & "I'm switching to [other brand]" then it will not sit well. Obviously these companies are pushing it for more than money, but the less capital they have to use, the better.

In addition, point out companies hypocrisy (in Twitter's case- how threats made by celebs and even official ISIS accounts stay up, but Republicans and people reporting pedos are banned).

As for the alternatives:

> Microsoft - Linux (ask /tech/ for advice on how to make infographs for installing/using, particularly for Linux Mint), other email providers (ask /tech/).

> Twitter - sealion.club and Gab.AI apparently.

> Google - Startpage, other email providers, other smartphone brands. NOT DuckDuckGo (long thought to be a scam).

> Facebook - Seen.Life

3. Create infographs to aid in step 1 and 2

Provide sources, make it clear to read, and use emotional language (but never lie).

4. Disnod people working with the above

This is a big step, and should be undertaken only when this takes off.

It's not the same as asking someone to stop advertising on a website they deemed easy ad-space. We're asking them to drop affiliation with the biggest companies on earth- not to mention half of them might be in bed with their ideals.

But, we also helped strip Gawker of 6 figures before Hogan even looked at them.

Free Speech online is on the line.

Without it, we can't redpill people on social media. We can't show how many we are. We can't connect.

Trump showed the world we are many. And now, they're trying to tape our mouth shut so they can speak for us for a few generations- all while claiming bad is good, wrong is right, there's nothing to fear, and real investigation is fake news.

Time to bite their fucking hand off.

Internet Archaeology - The Penny Arcade Digging Thread

Full disclosure: Your board owner is butthurt.

You guys and gals can probably remember every major event in #GG's history since August of 2014, and I'm sure a lot of you remember this one too:

THE PENNY ARCADE "DICKWOLVES" DEBACLE CLEAR BACK IN 2010.

I've seen it referenced both here and on /v/ as one of the major SJW issues in gaming before #GG came along. But somehow we missed something. We missed The Clique.

A long time ago, I was an avid PA reader and a major fan. Then in 2014, they made a post on the PA site weighing in on #GG that essentially threw us to the wolves and told us to give up. The people who waged a personal war against Jack Thompson were cowed by SJWs. I bore such a grudge over that, that I never went back to the site again. And so I missed it too.

The names.

LOOK AT WHO WAS RAKING PENNY ARCADE OVER THE COALS IN 2010 OVER THE DICKWOLF JOKE.

>Amanda Marcotte

>Dan Bruno

>Leigh Alexander

>Jenn Frank

>Arthur Gies.

>Wil Wheaton

>James Fudge

>Arthur Chu

>Nathan Grayson

>Courtney Stanton / @kirbybits (the one demanding DW merch be taken down from the PA store)

>Maddy Myers of the Boston Phoenix

IT'S A GODDAMNED WHO'S-WHO OF THE aGG CLIQUE.

Not only that, but the original post that started the shitstorm was an anonymous blogpost on the Shakesville forum.

The same clique that declared gamers dead were responsible for the cucking of Penny Arcade a full four years before #GG happened. To my knowledge no digging into those events has ever been undertaken - it being ancient history by Internet standards.

Guess what the purpose of this thread is?

>Who could have made the Shakesville blogpost?

>How were the journos tipped off?

>Was GJP, or some predecessor to it, actively involved?

>What are the connections between the clique back then? How deep did the whole thing go?

And my personal suspicions, which I'll copy and paste from my /v/ post earlier, before I noticed any of this.

>Sometimes I wonder if the cucking of Penny Arcade wasn't a planned act. Anyone remember the games media getting involved in it at any point?

>As popular, un-PC, and loudmouthed as Gabe and Tycho were, and as much utter hell as they caused Jack Thompson, it would stand to reason that they would have to be dealt with somehow before the "socialization" of vidya could be attempted in earnest. They had enough fans to DDoS sites by accident, just from linking them. Imagine if they had jumped on the ride with us back at the beginning. No way could the SJWs allow that.

THE GOAL:

Put together a packet of information we can send to Usher and other #GG friendly outlets, and expose that this conniving bullshit has been going on FAR longer than #GamerGate.

Get to digging anons. The rabbit hole apparently reaches back into the past, and I'll be right here alongside you.

Fags, I need your help and advice.

I'm a devFag to be, I will be starting my Indiegogo campaign very soon. Before the end of the week.

It's a dungeon crawler with titties. More specifically, a dungeon crawler where the titties grows the stronger your toon become. Think a mix of Omega Labyrinth Z, Xenogears, Alundra and Persona.

I'm making two versions the game. The classic version, which I will outright sell with an uncensor patch, and the Patreon version, which will feature explicit sex scenes for Patreon supporters only. Nobody else will have access to that version.

Now, the advice I need is: Do I stay anon? I think it may be a good idea to go public with my identity to garner trust, I really don't want to scam people. On the other hand, if my identity is public, I will be crucified and quartered by the progressives.

Also, I will need your help to shill my game. What can I do?

Escapist 2.0 - return of the movieblob

So… this just in: The Escapist has been bought by some new jokers, and the new managing editor is one Russ Pitts

http://deepfreeze.it/journo.php?j=russ_pitts

He posted this: https://medium.com/@russpitts/the-last-of-escapist-magazine-5dd4f852703a

Of note, he claims the following:

"One thing I can tell you without delay or equivocation: We’re leaving politics at the door. Most of us have thoughts about politics. Just like most of you. And, because we’re creators, those thoughts might show up in our work. Avoiding that would be unnatural. That said, I can promise you no one here will share their politics in an attempt to convince you yours are wrong. And your worth will not be calculated based on whether you’re on the left or on the right. Politics are everywhere, but they don’t have to be everything. We’re going to focus on what’s fun, and we hope you’ll join us in that."

>We’re leaving politics at the door

>I can promise you no one here will share their politics in an attempt to convince you yours are wrong

This sounds great… but… apparently one of the first things he's done as editor is re-hire Movieblob Chipman.

Movieblob wasn't slow to quickly declare this as some kind of victory:

https://twitter.com/the_moviebob/status/1022621991210287104

>"PS: Do I strike you as an apolitical hire"

ya… it seems that Russ running some very mixed messages here. Makes me wonder what kind of leash movieblob has been put on.

So far I haven't seen anyone ask about this on the escapist forums - but since I don't know if Russ has issued any new rules on moderation about this kind of stuff, then I'm sure if its even safe to ask. This could be the sign that the escapist will turn into a second Polygon… if Movieblob gets his way - or it Russ turns out to be a straight shooter, then it might be a turn for the better

though, who the fuck puts money in a games media website these days? None of them have been able to really turn that much of a profit, if any at all.

No Nudes? No Peace!

PROBLEM (the skinny):

Valve isn't applying their terms and conditions for developers equally, and getting more hostile (along with being extremely selective) with what games they take down from the Steam storefront.

PROBLEM (the fat):

There has been a round of attacks on visual novels on Steam for having nudity, but nothing as bad as seen with the most recent event.

https://steamcommunity.com/app/339800/discussions/0/1692669912389350696/?ctp=2 (There's no archive as the discussion page is walled with a NSFW warning, a screencap is all I can conjure up)

However, at the same time, Lupiesoft had their game "Mutiny!!" taken down from Steam, despite being tame (Even the developer claims "Mutiny!!" is tame), making me think that this is Valve just angry at the success of Japanese developers.

https://archive.fo/PjJjw

After this user, who claimed "we're not taking away your videogames" on "Huniepop"'s discussion thread after it was threatened with a takedown has been found talking with players of other games about Capitalism being bad among other things, but with these two archives, I have reason to believe that the user named "purple" is merely just a shitposter.

https://archive.fo/TdpK2

https://archive.fo/Fuzli

Even with "Purple" just being a troll, the point still stands.

With all of the reporting of visual novels with art even barely inspired by Japanese cartoonists, along with Valve's lack of action against Western visual novel games that have sex equal or even more hardcore than what's found in the visual novels that Valve's taking down from the storefront, We're left with only one course of action.

COURSES OF ACTION:

Find any game steam that were positively covered (read: shilled for) by the games journos/AAA games having explicit content and flag it for review, citing whatever offensive material the game may contain.

(an example of this would be reporting "Grand Theft Auto V" for "violence", or "Ladykiller in a Bind" for "sexual content", etc.)

If Valve is being selective with rules that are clearly laid out, then it's best to male them to apply the terms equally across Steam.

If this fails, then it's best to just abandon Steam altogether in the future.

If that doesn't work, you can try contacting Valve directly, and see if you can't get someone from there (if there is anyone working there anymore besides Gabe Newell, that is) to talk or take action.

Good luck out there.

Final Heaven for Kotaku?

The Prophesied End

The website Kotaku, one of Gawker's former properties and one of the major opponents faced by #GG and gamers around the world, is in a dire situation. Univision, the new parent company who bought up Gawker's old properties (Gizmodo, Kotaku, Lifehacker, Deadspin, Jezebel, io9, and others) is currently facing a minor crisis.

Univision bought Kotaku in the wake of the devastating Hogan trial believing, to some degree, that the Gawker properties were actually breadwinners and that Gawker had merely been sunk by an untimely lawsuit. Why else would they sink millions of dollars into them? But the Gawker sites are now underperforming. Badly. DISNOD long ago stripped Gawker, and especially Kotaku, of its major ad revenue sources and many of us suspected that Kotaku itself was only being kept alive by cash infusions from other, slightly less crippled Gawker properties. Univision are now feeling that financial weight like an Albatross around their necks, and they are pissed. Word is that Univision is about to do a major overhaul and possible decimation of the old Gawker sites, and we have an opportunity to help them put Kotaku out of the entire Internet's collective misery.

The truth. You, and I, and everyone else on the goddamned Internet has been boycotting Gawker media's properties and advertisers for the past several years. This extends to Univision. And the retards who made us all mad enough to do this all work at Kotaku. Stephen Totilo. Nathan Grayson. Jason Schreier. Patricia Hernandez. Luke Plunkett (remember how he shamed the scientist who landed a probe on a comet?). All of them. Name names. There is no need to mention #GamerGate - as we always did, this is an individual effort.

Tell them that you're still mad as hell, and you're not going to take Kotaku's shit anymore. And then consider offering them this: If they either get rid of Kotaku completely, or get rid of every single one of the assholes working there and gut the place from Totilo on down, you will consider (not necessarily obligated to do, of course) ending your boycott of all the Univision properties.

The Ammunition

DEEPFREEZE

http://deepfreeze.it/outlet.php?o=kotaku

Everything you could ever ask for is at this link. Hitpieces. Conflicts of interest. You name it. Refresh yourself on why we've been doing this for four years, and really let them have it!

The Timetable

One week. We blow up their corporate contacts for one week starting today, with as many people as we can reach. This is time sensitive: Univision is working up their overhaul plan right now, and their employees are expecting layoffs to start within two weeks. We've got a narrow window to influence them, so don't sit around waiting for other people to do the work! Their message boxes being full come Monday morning would be the best outcome.

The Win Condition

Univision sees that keeping Kotaku around really is more trouble and expense than they're worth. Univision themselves are somewhat pozzed, but they bought Kotaku for one thing: To make money. If we convince them that Kotaku dying is good for their bottom line, then we can push them over the edge and put an end to that shitstain blog.

It's a chance too big to pass up.

Requesting for repository regarding gaming "journalists" bigtory and hatred towards Japan.

Hello, it's been a while since I really posted here. I usually lurk. In the previous 2 #GamerGate threads on /v/, I suggested that every attacks by video game journalists against Japan must have repository in future usage. Because people like us are going to need it.

Sort it by writer, website, genre(anime, culture, video games, manga) so it could be read clearly by people who will find the repository useful. Because if there's anything that needs documentation, it's their immense hatred against Nipland because they haven't fully bent their knees to feminism and social justice because equality and diversity. Their attacks won't go be forgotten.

WHO Proposes Gaming Addiction as a disorder

https://archive.is/X2MBb

> The [World Health Organization] is proposing a new “Gaming Disorder” type of classification for addictive behavior, likening it to gambling disorder in a beta draft for their International Classification of Diseases for next year.

> The current proposition has the diagnosis listed under “disorders due to substance use or addictive behaviors,” and is also detailed as “mental and behavioral disorders that develop as a result of the use of predominantly psychoactive substances, including medications, or specific repetitive rewarding and reinforcing behaviors.”

> The classification goes on to describe this type of behavior:

“Disorders due to addictive behaviors are recognizable and clinically significant syndromes associated with distress or interference with personal functions that develop as a result of repetitive rewarding behaviors other than the use of dependence-producing substances,” words from the gaming section. “Disorders due to addictive behaviors include gambling disorder and gaming disorder, which may involve both online and offline behavior.”

> As this draft is in beta form, this doesn’t mean the World Health Organization is ready to label millions of gamers, including myself, as addicts. They could remove it before the final form is approved and published.

Irrelevant of actual addicts, we know this can and will be abused by the usual anti-gamer types to their advantage. If they can't claim games corrupt sane people, then they'll try to claim all gamers are addicted or insane. Other tricks could include hypocritical application- spending thousands of dollars on a mobile app is fine, but binging on a violent or new game when you get it is clearly a problem. Or watching X hours of TV, using the internet, or reading is not deemed addiction when the same amount of time gaming is.

As mentioned in the article's comments, waiting to see what happens won't work. We need to get the pitchforks out now to show we won't be fucked with or take it lying down.

All we have so far is contact info for WHO: http://www.who.int/about/contacthq/en/ not sure if asking them what the terms of diagnosis are would help us by exposing their hypocrisy or lack of understanding in replies, or just give them a guide on how to spin common questions they'll get.

Crash Override Network

Saw some TORnon talking about CON in the offtopic general (>>281680). Decided to make a thread because I'm autistic and can't find shit in the catalog. CON is Ms. Quinn's anti hate group. According to Wikipedia (https://archive.is/XtaRN) they're a "Pro bono support group for victims," however with Ms.Quinn's past in hell dump I wonder how much of her anti hate group is truthfully helpful. She links to her patreon (https://archive.is/FyFF2) and makes well over 3000 dollars a month, yet no one else's is mentioned. This implies Ms.Quinn's the main beneficiary of any and all donations–a literal "con" if you will. This makes me question who and what is actively helping her, overall, outside of the obvious parties.

Looking at Ms.Quinn's past, I noticed things that feel… preplanned.

> Congress (https://archive.is/kp8i3)

> Google (https://archive.is/hpdJC)

> UN (https://archive.is/mTdnY)

Quite an odd career path for a compulsive and chronic abuser who, by their own logic, raped their ex-boyfriend. So, GamerGate, what can you tell me about Ms.Quinn's Crash Override Network? What digging have you done? Is this just a massive conspiracy by Ms.Quinn to spread disinformation so others can be more easily doxed? Have you look at the self dox guide posted by con (https://archive.is/xo9lT)?

Now looking at what TORnon said, alternatives would be a good way to help dismantle and disprove CON, yet normies seem to lap up anything their news feeds or the talking heads on the TV say. If we were to start a campaign and offer up alternatives like Paranoidsbible (paranoidsbible.tumblr.com) or School of privacy (school-of-privacy.com) to normies, how would we go about showing them as being the betters of CON? School of privacy seems a bit too technical. Paranoidsbible is fine but doesn't seem to have the presence. One we can solve easily with boosting it across social media while the other we can't actively doing anything about.

So, what says you GamerGate?

OP Goolag

HIT GOOGLE WHERE IT HURTS

So you want to kill google? And not just kill it, fucking demolish it? Three things need to happen. All of Google's money comes from advertising, analytics, and hosting. To kill google we need to drive up their operational costs while lowering their profits.

Fuck with their advertisements

If you have ever worked with adsense before you will know that the one thing they absolutely despise is telling people to click ads. They want people who are actually interested in products to click advertisements, because only they will be persuaded to purchase products. On top of that, companies pay google per click. If they are paying a ton of money and few people are buying their products, they will pull out.

STEP 1: Go on to youtube, google shopping, or anyplace else with adsense ads in private browsing mode on a vpn or proxy.

STEP 2: Click all the ads you possibly can

STEP 3: Hop on a new proxy/vpn/tor circuit, and clear out the browser

STEP 4: Repeat

???????

LOSS OF PROFIT

Fuck with their file storage (NOTE: This step has been discussed in the /tech/ thread, and consensus was it was highly unlikely to work unless we had HUGE numbers of people)

Google stores everything you upload, and keeps it there even if it gets "deleted." Storing stuff costs lots of money, and high speed ssd drives to keep it all on aren't cheap. The more you upload, the more they pay.

STEP 1: Choose a platform that allows you to upload files(eg: youtube, drive, gsites, ect)

STEP 2: Get a file that is at or over the maximum file limit

STEP 3: Upload it again, and again, and again, and again

EXTRA STEP: If you are doing youtube make a huge file with a ton of random music, text on the screen, and game footage. Their matching algorithm will have to go through your whole 1hr + video and match everything there for monitization.

??????

LOSS OF PROFIT

Fuck with analytics

Google is so popular in the analytics world because it can show advertisers what type of people are viewing their page (see http://theoutpost.observer/article.php?id=32 for a good explanation). If we can make this data unreliable then people will stop using google services.

STEP 1: Get a huge word dictionary

STEP 2: Make a small script that searches something entirely random every 20 minutes or so

STEP 3: Let it go as long as possible on as many accounts as possible

STEP 4: Go to random pages with tracking on them to give them fucked results

?????

LOSS OF PROFIT

Fuck with the advertisers (A.K.A. DisNod)

If companies think their users won't buy their products because of google then they will pull out and stop funding them. Youtube's budget got slashed when a few guys pulled out, just imagine what would happen if we could get a ton of people to leave.

STEP 1: Get a huge list of "medium" sized advertisers. Companies that are small enough that it is easy to get a message through to them but big enough that they have a large advertising budget.

STEP 2: Get huge volumes of well written emails to them saying that you (a past customer) are highly against google and don't want to purchase from a company that supports them. Talk about the quality of their products and say you don't want to take your business elsewhere. Sweet talk them.

STEP 3: Get fucktons of people to do this. Gamergate style, but bigger.

Analyzing SJW - Learning how to make them expose their true natue

https://www.hooktube.com/watch?v=gosezCiZQKs

Intro is long so skip to 2:24 for a bit on social media that becomes relevant later (basically Social Media helps aggravate these personalities, as their fear of being judged by public opinion but crave approval) or 2:52 directly.

"Dangerous Personalities: An FBI Profiler Shows You How to Identify and Protect Yourself from Harmful People" by Joe Navarro. It has a segment on Paranoid Personalities that applies to SJW perfectly (Opinionated, Argumentative, Prone to Hate).

> They think their hyper sensitivity is a form of superior insight, so there's no room for debate with them. Logical, or even empirical proof, to them, is meaningless. Try to reason with them and you may be seen as a conspirator working against them, or worse, as an enemy.

> Paranoid personalities select and distort facts and history, stringing together disparate events and ideas to fit their views and justify their actions.

Other quotes from the video are a fucking mirror to what SJW do nowadays. A lot of the time we brush of SJW as simply being weak-minded and crazy. Likewise, normalfags only know them for being "dumb" rather than harmful. They see no connection between AntiFa and someone saying women being sexy is bad. They see no connection between someone who would mock or harass someone on social media for a "bad" opinion, and someone who would kill or cause serious harm for the same reason.

In depth analysis of paranoid personalities (as the book calls it) might help us out. Not to fix them (even if reversing it is possible, it'd require more attention and care on an individual basis than we can offer), but to expose the raging paranoia and hate to everyone.

Same reasoning behind OP Vulcan (learn how to debate, destroy their argument, and use their freak out to educate observers how SJW really are).

Objectives:

1. Get a PDF of "Dangerous Personalities: An FBI Profiler Shows You How to Identify and Protect Yourself from Harmful People" by Joe Navarro and post it here.

2. Dig into the section on Paranoid Personalities.

3. Using information learned, create new methods of discussion/interaction with SJWs/Globalists/Marxists/etc. with the intent to expose their hateful and paranoid nature- stripping away their social mask.

4. Create infographs, memes, etc. to spread on social media with the intent of:

A. Teaching others how to "spot" an SJW, how they escalate, how they react to certain stimuli. "This mentality is a threat to you" presented as "Look at this loser".

B. Teaching others step 3: methods of discussion/interaction with SJWs/Globalists/Marxists/etc. with the intent to expose their hateful and paranoid nature- stripping away their social mask. "This is how to eliminate a threat to you" presented as "here's how to get assholes like this to leave you alone."

Intent and End Goals:

I. Awareness & Pushback. More people using the Internet are prepared to bite back at SJW- whether it be mockery or actual derision. Much like how unPC opinions cannot be expressed online without SJW harassing or mocking you, we want the situation flipped so they cannot express their already disproven opinion without being mocked or derided. In turn this also gives SJW less power. Less SJW are prepared to dogpile someone for fear of being judged/mocked/etc. In short; Undo the illusion that SJW are the majority voice.

We do not expect the entire internet to fight back, but enough users to turn SJW into a mockery that can be safely mocked. In turn this will:

II. Business & Political Disassociation. Make it unprofitable for any business to promote SJW politics with their brand, due to association with a toxic group of people. Less adverts promoting SJW stuff, less people see it daily, less conditioning to make it "normal". The same also applies to politicians, so they cannot (openly) run on a platform based around SJW politics & beliefs.

III. Rejection From Positions of Influence. More people are aware of what an SJW is, and they reject them from social circles, using services they provide, or hiring them. Especially schools. In turn, people refuse to use businesses/schools/etc who hire SJW. Any association with an SJW is as bad as association with a "GamerGater" a few years back (and arguably now).

Show SJW are a danger, mock them, teach others to do the same, and make it socially unacceptable to be an SJW.

The only counter we need to be aware of is "rebranding" of SJW. Repackage the shit in different language and have the New SJW claim the old are awful- even though it's the same mentality and the same beliefs. This would require public comparisons of the new to the old, to show "the emperor has no clothes".

OP: Korean BBQ - Redpilling the west on S.Korea SJWs

Discussion on new S.Korea events goes here:

>>246229

I made this it's own thread as I feel as it's own OP the thread will fill up fast.

If mods want to combine the two topics, please delete and repost this info in the S.Korea thread.

Recent events in S.Korea have exploded. Now being the perfect time to show the rest of the world what SJWs do to a country, and what SJWs do when they don't get their way.

Priority One:

Red pill people on S.Korean SJWs and the terrorist actions and insanity of Megalia + Daughters of Megalia.

Eliminate the DisInfo on No Shield being the Korean GG (it's not misogyny harassment either, and they're about letting certain companies get censored by the government because they were betrayed IMO it'll backfire, but that's discussion for the other thread.

Aim For:

People drawing conclusions that western SJWs could escalate to this level- or discredit western SJW by ideology proximity.

Avoid:

People thinking the S.Korea example is so extreme it'll "never happen over here" (by showing the opposite end of the scale, people can't see how they could get there)

Methodology:

Post info in comments of articles & tweets, get GookAnon to interview HeatSt (Gook says he will), create infographs (but find other sources to verify).

Follow Up Operations (in rough order of priority):

- Produce Infographs directly comparing S.Korea SJWs to western SJWs (to help the stragglers who've not yet made the connection)

- Contact other S.Korean anons to back up and verify information. believe it or not, some of this info has been verified on the S.Korea board of Reddit IIRC

- Get good outlets to produce stories in S.Korea

- Get S.Korean literate people to dig into Meligana and the connections. (Like Korean Huff Po. Pic coming up.).

- Push for anti-SJW stuff among certain groups that can be whipped into a frenzy easily (soccer moms, people with disdain for US education system/common core) using the S.Korea comparisons (In this instance, play to their ignorance. "It's foreign so it must be bad. They were against us in WW2 right?!") to get them to campaign against SJW shit in schools. Yes, the school will just rebrand it and carry on- but the more we make them have to cover their tracks and re-work, the more errors they make.

- Create documentation tracking how S.Korea wound up like this. I imagine it'll be /pol/ tier people using S.Korea as a testing ground, and if we kick over the wrong thing we'll get stung- HARD. But it'll help us find more string-pullers and dig into who or whatever they have fingers in.

- DisNod companies that fund S.Korea SJW or supported Meligana ("Hi [Advertiser/investor] did you know [company] supported terrorist group Megalia in S.Korea?"). This step may be unneeded if the previous steps go well.

Syrup sucking socialists from Canada with 300 different gender pronouns

HURK DRUBMAN, SR.: Hello, this is…goddammit, Junior, this thing even recording?

HURK DRUBMAN, JR.: Yeah, it's on. You're doing a great job, daddy.

HURK DRUBMAN, SR.: I know I'm doing great. You come from my goddamn gonads, son. I don't ever need your opinion on how I'm doing.

Hello, I'm Hurk Drubman, Sr. I'm a veteran, small business owner, a loving father, and I'm running for State Senate.

I care deeply for Montana, which is why I can no longer sit back while this state and this country are turned into Canada by godless, gunless hippies who will not rest until democracy is dead and we're all eating ketchup chips. These syrup sucking socialists sneak into our country with 300 different gender pronouns and take our high paying jobs in entertainment and hockey! They don't care about our way of life. They want to take our guns, spread their liberal agenda, and give our daughters free abortions.

If elected, I'll put a stop to these maple leaf menaces to the north. I will make sure our healthcare is more expensive than ever. I'll remove the French courses from our schools. And I will require all Montanans who were born in Canada or share their politics to be deported or shipped to California.

Finally, I'll push for more strict immigration laws and build a 700 foot tall ice wall on our border, which I'll slowly move one inch north every year until Canada is American again. Make no mistake: If you're Canadian or that dirty liberal judge Andy Walker who ruled against me and let my gold digging ex-wife steal my fortune in the divorce, your days are numbered.

VideoGame Violence Articles

In light of recent events (even Trump has said he's gonna look into violent video games & media), I think we need to make a database to spread.

1. Post a PDF or link to every report that proves videogames do not cause violence or make people crazy.

Articles talking about the reports/papers/dissertations/etc should also be posted here (archived). With their official tweet as well if you can.

2. Post a PDF or link to every report that shows how many people under the age of a game's rating own the game.

Same as the above. The intent is not to feed the enemy, but to show the parents are giving their kids material that is not appropriate for them. Blocks won't work if the parents seek out and get this material for their children.

Secondary Goals

3. Post a PDF or link to every report that shows social media affects kids negatively.

Same as above, and again, the internet is not to feed the enemy. SJWs and the hard-left rely on being able to appeal to young people so their politics are set as "normal" in their minds from a young age. Not to mention how social media ruins how people are supposed to socialize (to the point one of the Twitter founders says he regrets it).

> We need to stop kids from seeing material that makes them violent!

< Fine, lets stop them using Twitter to read CNN.

4. Post a PDF or link to every report that shows how kids are fucked up due to other factors outside of videogames.

Drugged for being hyper-active, boys punished for being masculine and girls punished for being feminine, kids being isolated due to their peers being brought up to not associate with anyone different from their interests, a lack of job prospects, a lack of good boyfriends and girlfriends, a lack of good friends, exposure to specific subjects too early in school (identity, sex, etc), a lack of identity outside of what they consume-

Basically answer the question: Why are the kids fucked up and miserable?

I mean we know (((why))), but we need to sugar coat the redpill and let normalfags realize it for themselves

Co-ordinate with /pol/ since I'm sure they'll have research on a lot of this (especially the secondary goals like 3 & 4).

Polygon admits flaws in ESRB's solution to microtransactions

Polygon: The ESRB’s new warning seems to hide loot boxes in plain sight

https://archive.fo/wVxAg

>Patricia Vance at first sounded a little confused by the pushback. Another reporter on the call Tuesday pointed out to Vance, the president of the Entertainment Software Rating Board, just how expansive the board’s new labeling of in-game purchases really was. Practically anything you see touted at E3 2017, The Game Awards, PlayStation Experience, it’s all carrying some kind of in-app purchase.

>Vance suggested that there are post-release expansions that are not offered for sale from within a game. I know I scratched my head trying to think of one; it sounded like the others on the line were, too. I tried to repeat the question in a different way, pointing out that a current game — South Park: The Fractured But Whole — has chapter extensions and a season pass, literally available from within the game (a bus stop serves as the marketplace for that). None of that was objectionable before loot crates hit the scene last fall. And there are no loot crates in the South Park game.

>Vance stuck to the message. A season pass and DLC offered from within the game gets the in-game purchases label, and the ESRB encourages all parents to set spending controls using tools on the platforms available.

>“The new In-Game Purchases label will be applied to games with in-game offers to purchase digital goods or premiums with real world currency,” the ESRB said in a statement, “including but not limited to bonus levels, skins, surprise items (such as item packs, loot boxes, mystery awards), music, virtual coins and other forms of in-game currency, subscriptions, season passes and upgrades (eg. to disable ads).”

>To me, it has the effect of obscuring, or normalizing (there’s a trendy word) the phenomenon of loot crates. If they’re just another in-game purchase, and gamers have tolerated them for years, what’s the BFD about this one, right? I’m not the only one who feels this way.

>A ‘Missed Opportunity’ to educate consumers

>”I think that’s absolutely the case,” said Rep. Chris Lee of Oahu, Hawaii, the state legislator behind a series of bills being considered by Hawaii’s assembly. They had hearings two weeks ago and the state’s House of Representatives and Senate are now considering each other’s proposals for a full vote in their chambers. “Nearly every major title has some form of in-game purchase. This label hides whether those purchases are a large downloadable piece of content or an endless loot box mechanic. So people have no idea, no way to find out until after they have purchased the game.”

>Lee is right. Go through our Top 10 Games of 2017. All but one (Everything) contain some kind of in-game purchase that conforms to this new labeling standard. No one is accusing Nier: Automata, Persona 5 or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild of the kind of obnoxious behavior seen in Star Wars: Battlefront 2, or what caused Call of Duty: WWII to alter its rollout of real-money purchases.

>In sports, my area of expertise, the last game I could find that had no in-game transactions was Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, which launched in mid-2015. The Golf Club 2, an unlicensed challenger, has some benign premium DLC to boost a player’s career. NBA Playgrounds, which I didn’t care for but which was at least praised for having, at launch, an old-school progression of unlocking the roster, has some extra characters for sale. Sure, EA Sports Ultimate Team has been around for nine years across now five titles, but MLB The Show, Pro Evolution Soccer and, especially, NBA 2K all have variants. And the “training points” for MLB The Show’s Road to the Show career mode, which I’ve likened to virtual PEDs, predate all of that.

>Lee overreached a bit, in my view, when he invoked FIFA 18 as a game “built around loot box gambling, that continues to be rated for all ages, with zero meaningful disclosure that they contain in-game gambling.” Ultimate Team is contained to a single mode of play, many don’t prefer it, and you can easily get $60 worth of play out of all the other modes it offers.

Net Neutrality Aftermath - OP Chickasaw

Net Neutrality is dead, but technically it's always been with us:

https://archive.is/yAryk

>In 1946, the Supreme Court decided the case of Marsh v. Alabama, in which a Jehovah’s Witness was arrested for trespassing because she was distributing religious literature in Chickasaw, Alabama, a town that was wholly owned by the Gulf Shipbuilding Corporation. Marsh argued that because the town’s roads and sidewalks were the only means by which she could exercise her freedom of speech—and because the town of Chickasaw had been open to public use in all other respects—the trespassing arrest violated her rights under the First Amendment.

>In a 5-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled in Marsh’s favor. Justice Hugo Black decreed that private entities do not have the right to ban speech on their property if they happen to own a monopoly on the means by which speech can take place. Black also argued that the more that private entities open their property up to public use, the fewer rights they have to control or ban what people do on that property.

>Given that Google, Twitter, Apple, Facebook, and other edge providers are publicly-accessible entities that have deliberately pushed for monopoly control over the Internet, it’s clear that Marsh v. Alabama prohibits them from censoring right-wingers. The statute also applies to ISPs, since they wield a monopoly over Internet access. All it would take to shut down online censorship is a halfway-decent lawyer arguing that these left-wing Big Tech companies are literally violating the Constitution.

Big Tech Companies are already violating the Constitution, and ISPs would too if they throttle!

> Don't be clickbait, briefly explain why Net Neutrality was unnecessary by one of the points mentioned in the archive- in fact, include it as well.

> Tailor to your audience. Most of your followers Right Wing? Tell them how Google and Twitter are already breaking the constitution for silencing conservatives. Most of Your Audience like Net Neutrality? Explain how it's already in the Constitution!

> If you focus on one point- include a screencap where in the post it says it- and highlight it in the archive. This gives you a new URL that'll highlight the same area and scroll down for whoever clicks on it, like so: https://archive.is/yAryk#selection-615.0-637.42 - include the original URL as well (https://archive.is/yAryk)

> Post your tweet here to spread the info quicker via old-fashioned SignalBooster tactics.

> Find out if you are shadow banned: http://shadownban-checker.xho.bedita.net/

> If you get banned/shadowbanned, make a new account and keep RTing and spreading information they want to censor- why give them their perfect "safe-space" platform? They didn't leave us in peace, and would snuff out where we refuge if given the chance. Become Umman Manda (pic related). I'm not saying raid. But I am saying we should make them work hard for a change.

> Spread alternatives (Mastadon, Gab.Ai, Minds, Bluehand, Wrongthink.net etc). Remember, we want to stop Twitter being the "main" social media hub. So spread around even the ones you don't like (as long as they function- any biases can be solved by dilution. Better than taking all the eggs from one basket, and putting them in another basket- along with the rotten ones). Include Twitter's stock code as well ($TWTR) to make shareholders shit themselves.

> Ask companies you "like" (i.e. those you buy from or you think are big) if they have accounts on the alternatives (where applicable). Attack Twitter's wallet by getting big companies to jump ship, or at least have a foot in another one so as Twitter continues to decline they have more temptation to abandon it ("Well, we have an alternative already set up"). DisNod basically- maybe organize weekly targets?

> Use alternatives more (post your accounts here if you need to connect with GG people). Being they are not SJW/Marxist either, it should be a better class of people to interact with as well.

Happy New Year!

Well anons, its 2018! Once again the Christmas Stalingrad comes to an end, and #GamerGate is still here.

Some Announcements!

As you can see, we still have some decent activity going on, as the various factions and branches of #GG continue to pursue their goals.

>EA is taking a beating over the Battlefront II lootbox controversy

>Magic the Gathering is seeing a moderate sized eruption of a #GG-like phenomenon after permabanning one of their commentators for being a shitlord

>Gawker is meddling around with an attempt to revive

>Tencent is up to some shady shit

>Our Wikipedia article still sucks and the bullshit going on over there continues to compromise the integrity of their entire site

>and much more!

8chan continues to do well, with over 12000 UIDs among the first page of boards. A considerable recovery from the damage done by Josh and the 8chan site issues, so props to Codemoney for handling that.

Hotwheels, our beloved former admin, literally found Jesus and became a religious man this year. I'm happy he's found a comfortable place in life there in the Philippines.

There was a recent resurgence in aGG activity on Twitter a few days ago, attempting to push Twitter to ban #GG related accounts in their Great Wrongthink Purge. This failed, and nearly all of #GG who were still on Twitter yet remain, including yours truly somehow.

And I have a present for you! A project is now underway called Project Alexandria. The goal of which is to

REVIVE THE ORIGINAL GG WIKI!

How this came about is a bit of a long story, but the long and short of it is that your paranoid board owner was attempting to preserve the Wiki back when it existed on gamergate.me, and was successful without ever realizing it. A local copy has been stored safely on my hard drive since 2015, and was recently rediscovered. I have teamed up with the eminently respectable host of Deepfreeze and purchased a domain name for it, and we're going to bring it back. Then we're going to merge all the new information from the defunct partial wiki attempt at thisisvideogames.com into it and open it up to GG supporters once again!

So have a great new year everyone! There's plenty to look forward to, even some nice games coming out!

Tencent digging/infographic creation thread

Let's try to collate, combine and centralize any and all information we have on these slimebags, eventually leading to some OC and infographics we can dump on twitter, leddit and wherever whenever a product of their's is released, or just for general usage and redpilling.

Here's a start from anon in the gg thread:

http://archive.is/MvcUa

Newest Tencent article on (((Wikipedia))).

The most interesting parts in it are Controversy paragraph and third text paragraph.

Controversy

Copying claims

>Many of Tencent's software and services are remarkably similar to those of competitors.

>The founder and chairman, Huateng "Pony Ma" Ma, famously said, "[To] copy is not evil." A former CEO and President of SINA.com, Wang Zhidong, said, "Pony Ma is a notorious king of copying."

>Jack Ma of Alibaba Group stated, "The problem with Tencent is the lack of innovation; all of their products are copies.

>As of 2009, the company held 400 patents.

Anti-malware software cheating allegations

>In 2015, security testing firms AV-Comparatives, AV-TEST and Virus Bulletin jointly decided to remove Tencent from their software whitelists.

>The Tencent products supplied for testing were found to contain optimizations that made the software appear less exploitable when benchmarked but actually provided greater scope for delivering exploits.

>Additionally, software settings were detrimental to end-users protection if used. Qihoo was later also accused of cheating, while Tencent was accused of actively gaming the anti-malware tests.

Criticism on King of Glory

>The People's Daily published two articles criticizing the Tencent owned game King of Glory, due to its purportedly addictive nature among Chinese youth.

>Share prices for Tencent drop dramatically by 5% on the days the articles were published.

Third text paragraph fragment

>On 20 November 2017, it became the first Asian company to cross the US$500 billion valuation mark, and has also surpassed Facebook to become the world's most valuable social media company, while joining the ranks of the top 5 biggest firms in the world alongside Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft and Amazon.

Gawker may come back from the dead

We need to have a frank discussion about new developments concerning Gawker. You may have been under the impression that Uni vision purchased Gawker last year, that was not technically true. Univision purchased Gizmodo Media Group a holding company with the shitty sites Gizmodo, Jezebel, Deadspin, Kotaku, Jalopnik, and Lifehacker; Gawker itself was not included. The Judge allowed Nick Denton to delay the sail of Gawker itself because GG had made it so toxic that it would have dragged down the value of the other assets if bundled.

Well the actual Gawker site is now getting ready to be auctioned off along with the rights to sue Peter Thiel for his roll in helping Hogan achieve justice. Seriously the rights to sue someone is being auctioned. Anyhoo the nigger fucking faggot Nick Denton wants to bid for it, Peter Thiel himself wants to bid but some probably illegal bullshit is happening to block him and a bunch of former employees are on kikestarter wanting you to help them buy it for them because they want to work for themselves like a bunch of commie hippy fagots.

Anyway after reading over kikestarters TOS it's clear that what they are trying to do is in clear violation. You cant use kikestarter to be mean or victimize anyone, gawker literally is all about that. And this campain states that they want to preserve all the old articles and shit.

I was half way into writing the report pointing out specific instances of there bullshit like when they made fun of someone for having his dad die or a woman for having cancer. But like what would I achieve, if they get kicked from kikestarter they would just try to Streisand it and get even more victim bux from some other platform.

Also I don't know if these hippies would be the worst owners. Someone's going to end up with the website. Presumably if Peter gets it he would shut it down but he may not want to pay the final asking price or he may not be allowed to even bid. Denton did a class act of fucking it up the first time maybe he could fail a second? Maybe these hippies will find out just how hard it is to play with the big boys.

One of the most hilarious aspects of the kikestarter campaign is that if they get funded but don't win the bid for the site these jews wont refund any of the backers. They say they will just use the money to build a new site. I kinda want to see fools getting separated from their money.

https://archive.fo/1hNYe - the kikestarter page

Side kick is currently giving them an 88% chance of getting funded.

So like, how do we play this. Do we ignore it, should we shill it to liberals to see them loose their money, should we try to shut it down reporting for TOS violations and smear it publicly? I know I'm fallible, kinda want to see if our hive mind can come to a consensus on the best course of action.

OP Highroller: Removing Actual Gambling From VideoGames.

An idea sparked from a /v/ thread. OP name is pre-emptive as the plan isn't even formed, but the goal and idea is.

The thread OP:

ALL MOBILESHIT, ALL SOCIALSHIT, ALL PAY2WIN, ALL FREEMIUM, ALL LOOTBOXES, GONE FOREVER

This is a brilliant idea, 99% of the cancer infecting the medium has been bankrolled by racketeers pretending to be game developers, using armies of disinterested normalfags as a battering ram into every platform, funded off the slaughter of lobotomized whales. In addition, it could create a public furor against anything else that vaguely smacked of it, such as DLC, Greenlight vaporware, and $1 appstore shovelware.

If the flames of a good old fashioned moral panic could be fanned up, especially in today's political environment, games might be saved in one fell swoop.

>Let's all be honest here, microtransactions, lootboxes, and keys are all super scummy and also skirt the line of being actual gambling by hanging on the very edge.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDVQr6gNqdA

>And judging by the slot machine style of how these cases usually are… I think there is something that can be said about them literally skirting these laws by inches. This isn't the only video like this, there are literally thousands like this and you can actually see these people get so hyped up during the rolling of the meter… it's literally the same look a person has going to a actual slot machine.

>Frankly, I think it is quite obvious that regulations against these type of things is going to happen really damn soon once any form of attention is thrown at them from any form of political body.

>So, how do we get the attention to finally end this blight upon gaming?

>Well. I actually do see many options in order to actually kill microtransactions once and for all. 2 I will name here as they seem to be the very best options.

>Force the ESRB to start rating any game with microtransaction/gambling mechanics as a automatic AO rating. As gambling is an actual real life thing of which only adults can use. I believe it is now important that we petition the ESRB to protect our children from these games by forcefully having any and all games with these elements be classified as AO only. AO only being an actual kiss of death for any and all video games it touches. It will prevent a huge swath of them on consoles and thus the game developers and publishers will be forced to patch them out if they want to keep selling the game. Also yes, I heavily recommend using the 'think of the children' type argument for this, might as well use the weapon they constantly use on us.

>Email/mail/talk to any and all political bodies about this issue in the gaming industry and how it is preying upon and literally giving birth to a new generation of gambling addicts and that video game companies are willfully responsible for it. This idea would actively piss off the entire game development and publisher community into fighting against it. But this would actually force a damn good limelight upon these issues and make them even more well known and people would go against them more by the day. Also a lot of the older congressmen absolutely despise video games so we might as well use that hatred to our actual benefit for once.

>The main most goal in all of this is to get these mechanics known to the whole world using news organizations. If we can get Talk Show hosts to talk about how messed up it is, we win, flat out. There will be nothing left to defend microtransactions whatsoever as public knowledge of them will come with a very swift hammer.

>Again though, here is the main point I wish to ask. Should the gaming community do this and finally put an end to a invasive and actually greedy practice? What do you guys think?

https://www.red*dit.com/r/KotakuInAction/comments/74dzlb/legitimate_question_here_should_gamers_actually/

Also, the best comment so far:

>Works for me. I have LONG maintained that if feminists want to really improve the state of gaming for women, that they start with the genres that women gravitate towards. Mobile gaming and its microtransaction shenanigans should have been at the top of their list since day one.

The above however, does not come with issues (see next post).

The purpose of this thread:

Catalog all cases of anti-GG/SJW/"virtuous" companies/marxist pushers and those who talk down to us about being immoral who have skeletons in their closet. Main focus is aGG and game related companies.

With how sexual assault has been under more scrutiny, this could escalate until those really high up in important industries can get fucked.

If you fix corruption in gaming, it can happen in other industries by laying the ground work and have the general public more informed to not tolerate it in other fields. Not to mention more sexual assault can be reported as more progress is made.

There is a delicate balance with false accusations however.

Happy Anniversary #GamerGate!

It's the Third Birthday!

Today is August 28th, which is the day that this and the previous GG boards have traditionally celebrated the birthday of #GG. August 27th was the day Adam Baldwin first coined the hashtag itself, but it was the following day that consensus was reached on /v/ to formally adopt the tag and take up the #GG mantle to spread word of our cause.

What was a Twitter tag created to point attention at a scandal became a banner under which gamers and free speech advocates from all over the global Internet rallied to stick up for our hobby in the face of a hostile media and a nearly equally hostile world.

They said we wouldn't last a month. We did.

They said we wouldn't last through Christmas. We did.

They said we wouldn't last through Destiny. We laughed our asses off.

They said we wouldn't last a year. We did.

They said we wouldn't last two years. We did.

They said we were dead. Then we got the blame for electing Donald Trump!

It's been a hell of a ride. I never imagined, when I stepped into the Burgers and Fries threads on /v/ in 2014, that things would wind up like this. Multiple warfront, mainstream media getting involved, a civil war within #GG and winding up a board owner myself. That we'd be in an episode of Law and Order. Now today we have books being written about us, and hitpiece headlines are still coming out on a weekly basis.

We just wanted to play videogames!

As I'm sure you've noticed, the old board here is pretty dead. Between all the chaos of the big board war and attempted takeovers by the IRC faction, most of 8chan lost interest in the game. We still have a valuable purpose as a safe harbor, and as a repository and discussion board for the information still flowing in from all over the #GamerGate network. It's times like this, when carrying on is hard and takes actual work, that you learn who really cares about the cause, and who was just around for the drama high and happenings.

Ultimately I'm just one asshole on the Internet, no more or less important than any other, so take this for what its worth, but… I'm proud of you. All of you. We've done something unparalleled in the entire history of the Internet, and we aren't done yet! Polygon has recently been discovered to be cheating on the FTC's rules again. You'll find it in the board catalog a little ways down. So on today, our third anniversary, how about we stoke the old fire and send a few emails to the FTC? That's how I'm gonna celebrate.

Cheers, GGHQ! And cheers to all of 8chan and #GamerGate!

THREE MORE YEARS OF SHITLORDS!

Article Archive Database

While GG Wiki is rebuilding, and after what happened with Tech Raptor (https://archive.is/AxZEs)- I think it's important we get our most crucial info saved to prevent being memory hole'd. And this might just help the wiki building guys to boot.

1. Find GG articles that cover GG honestly.

2. Archive them. Use more than just Archive.is (WaybackMachine, and a few others) (If they are videos on youtube, download them. Search for how, or shove "ss" in the front of the url. I.e. ssyoutube.com/blah)

3. Post them here (if you can. Some videos might be too big, look into video conversion).

4. Download the archive (we can't bank on Archive.is being up forever).

IMO priority order should be:

- Honest GG coverage (OneAngryGamer, NicheGamer, Mombot's work, etc).

- Study of SJW, and how to beat them/lessen their reach.

- Evidence of SJW doing what they do best.

- Evidence of Journalist lack of ethics, professionalism, and attacking their own demographic (this is done by DeepFreeze for gaming websites, hence it's so low- however major MSM should still be archived.)

OP: ESRBusted

(Source on first image: https://archive.is/GQXVf#selection-333.54-333.58)

The ESRB has been at the center of the censorship in vidya in recent years. Everyone scrambles for a T Rating, yet getting that rating is inconsistent. Not to mention the ESRB is charging an arm and a leg for it. Most stores refuse to sell anything without an ESRB rating, but small indies get away with it. If the ESRB got bigger, it could become mandatory (as in, all vidya media must have an ESRB rating- no matter how small the studio). The ESRB is almost there already, but after a few generations, you could have the ESRB refusing to classify some titles for being crass and inappropriate for all. And who should decide what is inappropriate for all in the future?

Goal

Either we drag the ESRB's reputation through the mud (too expensive, doesn't do it's job properly, is outdated as a guide to parents and consumers, does not assist the industry in a process that is almost needed), or they change their ways and/or costs.

Big companies would want the ESRB cheaper (but probably want to keep it around so the Mature label can be used in advertising), smaller companies would want the ESRB cheaper, and the (good) consumers would want the ESRB to have less power. Those who want to use the ESRB as a deterrent for "problematic" games get shafted when it loses it's teeth, and bad parents have to admit they never did the research in an age of youtube instead of blaming devs.

Methodology

Basic spreading & digging.

No major/decent dev is gonna reject the ESRB until it's reputation is reduced, and any backlash is minimal. So, under a new hashtag (ESRBusted) we showcase the worst of the ESRB:

- Expense.

- Anti-Developer practices.

- Inconsistent Ratings (as well as possible signs of bias- against Japanese games or "problematic" themes, etc).

When the ESRB responds to these claims (if we apply enough pressure they will), get trusted journos to write about it, shill their articles and research, and apply more pressure.

This is not to shift the blame of censorship from devs or producers- most of them wanted the lesser rating for a wider audience and more money. I wouldn't recommend making it sound like it's entirely the ESRB's fault (disinfo, even in our favor, can only end badly), but as an individual, you can decide how to present this info to some groups (i.e. getting Capcom fans thinking they're crusading for Capcom when the ESRB "made" them censor SV5). Do it your way, but never lie.

Twitch DisNod Target

Webm related.

In Theory

It could help clean up a decent chunk of a gaming community, by getting rid of a large group looking to get a free ride off beta males, and subvert the community. That gets a few more people on GG's side as we try to make services and the like about games for gamers.

The admins follow the camwhores- so we've got more soyboys and potential "male allies" who are bound to get pissed their spank-bank got shut down. Yet, complaining about it would make them look bad, and get more eyes on the camwhores, proving Twitch can't do shit, and isn't advertiser friendly.

Twitch is also owned by Youtube/Google IIRC. So you're taking money out of their pocket.

Finally, Twitch banned "problematic" games in the past (not even porn games), and having a pseudo-monopoly on streaming isn't good for anyone.

In Practice

"GamerGate chases off Camwhores women off Twitch!" writes itself. We should never not do something out of fear of backlash (they'll pin fake shit to us, so why not)- but if it's not an essential target, we could drop it for more important things. Of course, each individual can do whatever Ops they see fit.

If you approve- find people who sponsor or advertise through Twitch- and let them know the admins are fine with nip-slips and softcore porn as long as they can see it as well.

Getting ready to avoid appropriation of GamerGate by new audiences

>all these people blaming trump on gamergate in articles everywhere

>breitbart getting a top-spot in trump's government, very likely Milo will somehow mention us

GET FUCKING READY

Gamergate autocompletes again on twitter, which means that the very second trump or any of his very close advisors starts even MENTIONING us, you have be ready as shit

IF IT HAPPENS YOU HAVE TO MAKE GAMERGATE TREND AGAIN WITH VIDEOS, GRAPHICS AND SCREENCAPS TO TEACH EVERYONE WHAT IT IS ABOUT, JUST LIKE THE GOOD OL' DAYS

>Get your GG folder ready anon, you will possibly need it VERY soon

The purpose of this thread is to gather and plan ahead the very high possibility that Gamergate becomes an actual, heavy, present matter in the soon-to-be American government, and to ensure it doesn't get turned into another loud and ridiculous shouting match.

Collections of facts, screencaps, graphics, videos, etc. are necessary for easy and quick sharing. Statistics about political affiliations of the GG population, wikis, history articles, anti-gamergate exactions, etc. will always be useful.

The point isn't "PR". The media is at an all-time low in terms of trust from the general population, which implies people will seek information and knowledge from social media first and foremost; spreading gamergate's victories, goals and supports will ensure we get fresh blood, sure, but also that it isn't driven away from its actual purpose.

For example, here's a list of important outlets which have openly supported Gamergate :

- Wikileaks

- the SPJ

- the FTC…

A list of developers :

- Mark Kern

- Ethan James Petty (not officially I believe, touchy then, but eh)

- Gilles Matouba

- Huniedev

- Denis Dyack…

Again, the point of this thread is to make sure we have enough material for a POSSIBILITY. If Trump or his team never once mention us, it might probably be for the best.

I assume nothing would dissuade a hardcore SJW.

We need to organize each of those leaks akin to Deep Freeze (without the website- just put it in the file name and for internal use), and then send it to the relevant people (law enforcement, FemFreq advertizors/partners, Twitter shareholders since support won't do jack and social media to kick up a storm.

3rd Year Anniversary GamerGate Video

GamerGate affected me profoundly, and I know there are others who were similarly affected. We were always right. We were right about the incestuous nature of game journalism. We witnessed how a rigid ideology of victimhood created massive blindspots not just in games journalism, but wider mainstream media, how the exact same handful of individuals would be quoted as gospel.

Such a huge range of people were mischaracterized to an extreme degree that it served to inform us on how untrustworthy establishment media is. The 'official' narrative is drastically wrong. Despite this, GamerGate became an effective information network to counter establishment narratives, shaping online discourse for years to come. GamerGate was a pivotal moment in the Great Meme Wars.

I was moved by the memes, the artwork, the pages of digging and archiving, hours upon hours of well reasoned discussion whether on forums or on video, all of which went ignored by media. Those first 6 months or so of GamerGate were something special, hundreds of thousands of people finding each other through the false-narrative, finding each other in the darkness. We were ahead of the curve of mainstream discourse because we knew that we were individuals acting towards common goals, and it didn't matter who was left wing or who was right wing, that the media's black and white view of politics only divides people rather than fostering much needed discussion. We recognized the identity politics moral panic for what it was, years before we saw it affect the mainstream in huge ways, like how we've seen with James Damore at Google. GamerGate is a part of history.

I was moved to create a video in an attempt to capture what I believed the heart of GamerGate to be. This video serves as not just information and summary, but as a love letter to the people of GamerGate.

Social Justice

"Social Justice" is an interesting couplet of words. A term originally without a dictionary definition, it exists far more by what it implies rather than what any one person or group categorizes it as.

Of the definitions available by Merriam Webster, the most appropriate would seem to be

>"Social:" of or relating to human society, the interaction of the individual and the group, or the welfare of human beings as members of society.

"Justice" has similarly fitting options:

>"Justice:

>a: the maintenance or administration of what is just especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments.

>c (1) : the principle or ideal of just dealing or right action (2) : conformity to this principle or ideal.

A common theme of the second definition is that it is related to the management and application of what is just.

>Just:

>c : conforming to a standard of correctness.

>a (1) : acting or being in conformity with what is morally upright or good.

So in aggregate we have Social Justice definable as:

>Conformity to the principle or ideal of what is morally upright or good, as applied to the interaction of individuals and human society.

Sounds nice on paper, doesn't it? "When people interact, they should do so in moral and good ways, or with an eye to create moral and good outcomes."

The fly in the ointment is an implicit but unanswered question. That question is, briefly: Who is deciding what is morally upright and good in this context?

Leaving that for a moment, I'd like to address the concept of "justice" in the more common and less dictionary sense. Generally speaking, "justice" is understood to mean "equality of outcome." If a person is negligent and injures you, they have to pay your medical bills until your outcome - your physical condition, is back to where it was. When this is accomplished, "justice" is said to have been served. When a man commits robbery, he will have to forfeit a portion of his life and his assets, though prison and reimbursements, until "justice" is served. When a person commits murder, he can be sentenced to the death penalty. His life lost for the life he took. "Justice" is served.

In the way "justice" is normally used, it is an indirect reference to a sort of natural balance that exists between people, and which other people are not allowed to wantonly disturb. When a person unlawfully disturbs the balance in their favor, society has a right to move the balance back (at the interloper's expense), typically through collective or representative action, as by a government.

If we use this "common sense" definition and look at the two words again, a much more clear definition brings itself together:

>Social Justice:

>Commitment to the ideal of enforcing equal outcomes between individuals, groups, and human society, particularly when it is understood that doing so makes a person morally upright and good.

Now that does seem to ring a bell, doesn't it?

The official definition, by the way, is this:

>justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society.

Reading into it a bit and expanding the definitions we get:

>The administration of people who are acting or being in conformity with what is morally upright or good, especially by the assignment of merited rewards or punishments, in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society.

If I may make a tiny leap, it then stands to reason that an average person would not immediately hold that unequal distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges are moral or good. Which ties nicely into the "equality of outcomes" part in my off-the-cuff definition above. For all practical purposes the two are fundamentally interchangeable since, after all, you can merit those who have less "wealth, opportunity, or privilege" while punishing those who have more until the "balance" I spoke of between members of society is level.

"Punching up", "punching down", "the nail that sticks up gets the hammer", "check your privilege" - these are all memes that SJWs use that very clearly reference this definition, once it is properly understood.

Note carefully, however, that much likely a badly-written law in the legal books, this definition doesn't have any exceptions included in it for varying circumstances. It's a blanket statement. Implicitly, what it says is:

>Commitment to the ideal of enforcing equality of outcomes in the interactions of individuals, groups, and society is morally upright and good, and should be merited.

And the implicit inverse as well:

>Non-commitment to the ideal is not morally upright and good, and can be punished.

And where would we be without the third part of that wonderful trifecta of words. The WARRIOR part.

Warrior:

>a person who fights in battles and is known for having courage and skill

And there we have it. The proper definition of the SJW:

>A person who fights in battles that enforce equality of outcomes in the interactions of individuals, groups, and society, and is known for having courage and skill.

They're the ones who hand out the "merit" and "punishment" mentioned in the passages above, and their doing so means that they themselves are considered morally upright and good by their peers.

Note again, the lack of exceptions.

There are no "but"s or "unless"s in any part of this.

It does not say that an SJW is not still "morally upright" if they are a pedophile.

It does not say that an SJW is not still "good" if they are an abuser.

It does not say that an SJW is undeserving of "merit" if they are a liar.

And it does not say that a non-SJW is undeserving of "punishment" for anything. Only that "punishment" is used to administer social justice.

The entire ideology down to the definitions that make up the name is self-referential and totally exclusionary. You're either with them, and thus meritorious, good, and morally upright, or you are not with them, and thus not morally upright, not good, and subject to "punishment" if they judge that your outcome (in wealth, opportunity, or privilege) is more than equal to another person's. Owing to human limitations and the size of a person's Monkeysphere - the "another person" to whom a candidate's "wealth opportunity and privilege" are compared will most often be someone the SJW personally knows, like a friend or acquaintance. And considering the exclusionary nature of the ideology, that friend or acquaintance will most likely be an SJW themselves.

Furthermore, it stands to reason that a person who is "under attack" can be viewed by default as being in an un-just situation. When Alice pins Bob to the floor and beats his head into the concrete, no reasonable person would argue that Bob has the advantage in the situation. And while an ordinary person would pause to consider what instigated Alice into beating Bob into the concrete - (perhaps he started the fight? Presume that he did in this case, by groping Alice hard while reeking of whiskey) - and take a more neutral position concerned with the safety of both parties, things change if Bob is an SJW. Because Bob is an SJW, to his fellow SJWs looking on he is morally upright, good, meritorious, and having courage and skill by definition.

Remember, there are no "but"s in the definition of an SJW.

>Even though he is a drunkard, he is still morally upright.

>Even though he groped the woman, he is still good.

>Even though he started the fight, he is still meritorious.

>Even though Alice was his victim, she is still "privileged" over Bob, in the "head getting beaten in" department.

>And this can be brought to "justice" by "punishing" Alice until her outcome is equal to Bob's.

>And Alice deserves it for laying her hands on a "morally upright, good, and meritorious" person like Bob. Only a bad person would hurt someone like Bob.

GG Meetup in Saint Louis | August 28th

Hey everyone, I'll be hosting a GamerGate meetup in Saint Louis on Monday, August 28th to celebrate the third anniversary of GamerGate. The meetup will begin at Fuddruckers in Sunset Hills, MO around 1PM, where we can have lunch and a couple drinks. After lunch we'll be heading right down the street (walking distance) to 66 Cigar, where I've made reservations and will be bringing my GameCube and Super Smash Bros. I'll also be bringing some complimentary beer to the 66 Cigar for us to enjoy, but if you want to bring your own drinks and snacks, the owner is also fine with that. Obviously you don't have to drink or smoke if you don't want to.

Finally we will head out from 66 Cigar around 7PM and head to the South County Mall about ~10-15 minutes driving distance. If you have too much to drink, then you can also take local bus or carpool with someone else. Please don't drink and drive. At the mall we can grab dinner at one of the many restaurants at the mall. As far as I can tell, Buffalo Wild Wings is open the latest at the mall, so regardless of where we decide to eat, we could head there for drinks and hangout until midnight.

I have created an RSVP form which is linked below. I have also explained my plans for the meetup in greater detail here.

Japanese gamers are angry at us because of SJWs causing Star Ocean V to be censored

Where were you when glorious Nippon otaku raised their fists in anger at having to deal with SJWs from the west ruining their games?

>source for those that read moon runes

http://blog.esuteru.com/archives/8542569.html

Here is the full story about Star Ocean V being censored because of fear of SJWs here in the west. Yes both the Japanese and Western versions are now being censored because of SJWs this is the first time this is happening and its a historical moment.

http://nichegamer.com/2016/03/28/square-enix-gave-star-ocean-5s-miki-bigger-panties-in-fear-of-western-criticism/

Now they hate the west for ruining their games and they hate us too. Surely some of us can calm them down and teach them of the SJW and how they are ruining are games.

Together we can fight and win bringing even more glory to Nippon once again!

Gamergate Discord

https://discord.gg/abV3fWQ

There's been a couple GG Discord servers in the past, but recently there has been some drama at one ran by netscape9 from KiA (pics related, the last of which was right before a ban they'd later justify with false claims of attempted doxxing). There have been 16 bans recently within the last week or so for racist jokes and helicopter memes. One of the mods (who was actually the head moderator but has lost that position now, in title only) has been going ape over them, as she is a leftist, and feels personally attacked when someone makes helicopter jokes. Not only that, but both she and Netscape himself have stated that they do not believe that the movement is about free speech. Some of the people banned from there decided to make a new one. (Full disclosure: I am a moderator there.) The new server has channels dedicated to several GG ops and subtags, as the old one only had one dedicated to torrentialdownpour. The few rules are pretty clear and leave no room for revengebanning or nofunallowed.jpg If you're looking for somewhere to discuss GG, vidya and misc. bullshit, I suggest you check it out.

Massive GG Meetup in Saint Louis

Hey everyone, just a heads up that we'll be organizing a big GamerGate meetup in Saint Louis for the three year anniversary on Monday, August 28th! So far I've talked to quite a few people from previous meetups and a few GG-neutrals who are looking to know more about who we are and what we stand for, so I'm expecting a pretty big turnout.

The meetup will begin at 1PM at Fuddruckers in Sunset Hills, where we can have lunch together, have a couple beers and maybe play a couple games in their arcade. Then at 3PM I have reserations for 20 people at 66 Cigar, a cigar lounge within walking distance of Fuddruckers. As part of the reservation, I've got us exclusive access to their television, so we can play vidya together (maybe Smash Bros), so feel free to bring your own game consoles and/or games. Also, the reservation is officially for 20 people, but if more people show up that's fine. Another note about our meetup at 66 is that you can drink, but you'll need to bring your own alcohol - but snacks (namely pretzels) will be provided for us.

The meetup doesn't end there though! When 66 Cigar closes down at 7PM, we'll make our way to the South County Mall about 10-15 minutes down the road. From there we can decide to have dinner at the food court or one of the local restaurants. We could also check out some of the stores at the mall and/or head to Buffalo Wild Wings at the mall and relax for the rest of the night with wings, alcohol and good conversation.

There are three hotels in the immediate area of Fuddruckers and 66 Cigar, a Hampton Inn, a Days Inn and a EconoLodge. There are also dozens, if not hundreds of other hotels in the Saint Louis area to choose from, but those are the three closest to our meetup. The meetup location is also about 30-40 minutes from Lambert International Airport. The Saint Louis bus system runs through the area and all three locations are next to a bus stop, so public transportation shouldn't be much of an issue.

OP First Dawn

The Last Night has been hit hard by SJW clique shilling, as well as aGG and other cancer that is killing the industry. For whatever reason, the publisher has thrown the dev under the bus and the dev has been forced to apologize.

WE DO NOT STAND FOR THIS

We said three years ago that this is the kind of bullshit we don't want around anymore. Creators should not be forced to censor their games, or have their hard work destroyed before it has a chance to succeed because of ideological gatekeepers. Regardless of the dev's and publisher's reactions, we all can agree, that THIS is what we stand against. This pressure, this bullying, this kind of inquisition. They wanted to kill The Last Night,

NOW THEY FACE THE FIRST DAWN

For any operation to be successful, we need goals, objectives. We seem to agree on the following overall,

>We must push back against the central clique members who start these inquisitions

>We must push back against the media who enable them to continue said inquisitions

>We must support devs who are willing to fight through the witch hunts, and aid the ones who cannot

>In the end, we want vidya to be a place where creators are free to make the games they want to

But how do we accomplish this? Simply put, we divide things into the short-term and the long-term.

SHORT-TERM

First, we gather all of the evidence we can about The Last Night's media blitz. We need to make it clear, the only reason this game is under any pressure is because the creators didn't toe the line of an ideological clique that they never asked to be involved with. This means gathering info on every outlet and author, every blue check that retweeted the articles/smearjob, and uncover other things, like the person behind the @Justgamesonly22 account, or anyone who said dumb shit like the Ubisoft dev.

Secondly, we take all of this evidence, compress it all into easy-to-spread formats, and shove it in the faces of those who sought to kill The Last Night. Twitter, comment sections, wherever you can.

Third, we see what can be done for the morale of The Last Night team, maybe we can convince them to stay the course. Also, we need to find out if they did make any changes to their game after the pushback. One anon noticed the change to the game's Steam description. We need to somehow confirm that actual tangible changes are going to happen to this game.

LONG-TERM

We need to do everything in our power to make sure a situation like this does not happen again. This means vocally supporting good devs, outlets AND helping other people stay informed.

First and foremost, a full scale redux of OP Rebuild is in order. A vague, out-of-date list of ethical outlets isn't good enough. Same goes for talking about devs. We need to have a seriously dedicated list of outlets for anons to follow, and for those who participate in social media to follow and spread these outlets, so long as they remain ethical and informative. This doesn't just mean push the easy ones, like TechRaptor and Niche, it means seriously helping out the smaller/struggling ones by spreading their good articles, turning off Adblock and letting them know you're here supporting them. This goes for devs as well. When P5 suffered pushback from the localization crowd of bullshit, we messaged Atlus, showed them we cared enough to buy the game, and told them we appreciated the effort that went into bringing the game over to NA. We should do the same for devs who are smaller, under fire, or just plain good devs who care for their consumers: Us gamers.

Secondly, we need to work on informing gamers who don't spend their time on here. Let them know about companies, and dev teams, and systems that support consumer-friendly practices. Let them know what they need to do to protect their own interests AND recognize when pushbacks like the one for The Last Night are happening, so that they can be there to oppose anti-gamer/anti-consumer bullshit, wherever it comes from. This means infographics, small tidbits of easily spreadable info, and a willingness to help out the gaming community as a whole. Aspiring graphic designers in the thread will want to get on this, as well as our /tech/heads and savvy consumers who are willing to explain this at a very clear and basic level.

Third, we need to keep being gamers. Keep playing vidya, keep supporting good vidya and talking about it. Make art of your favourite characters, if you're talented enough. Support an artist if you aren't artistically inclined. At the end of the day, we're gamers, and we care about this industry in all aspects. We need to show it.

The Last Night has been sunk by aGG and the clique. They blamed a dev for invoking our name and being critical of their once-idol, as well as their political ideology.

We're getting back in the game. They called our name, we must answer

This brave soul stands up for sex workers and even though the popular media acknowledges it, wikis censor this valuable information and will not acknowledge her activism or the people she helps.

How can this be remedied? Her contributions are being censored under the guise of protecting her, as if explaining her accomplishments which she proudly speaks of to the mass media, would harm her somehow.

In addition, he said his statement could serve as an example to others not to do the same.

https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/anticompetitive-practices

> It is unlawful for a company to monopolize or attempt to monopolize trade, meaning 'a firm with market power cannot act to maintain or acquire a dominant position by excluding competitors or preventing new entry. It is important to note that it is not illegal for a company to have a monopoly, to charge “high prices,” or to try to achieve a monopoly position by aggressive methods. A company violates the law only if it tries to maintain or acquire a monopoly through unreasonable methods.

Ian P. Buckingham of the Huffington Post has given GamerGate the opportunity to write a rebuttal! (D

Huffington Post journalist Ian P. Buckingham wrote an article on GamerGate on April 5, 2017…

https://archive.fo/vNyIz

…which was the subject of an analysis by William Usher on One Angry Gamer:

http://www.oneangrygamer.net/2017/05/huffington-posts-ian-buckingham-posts-factually-inaccurate-article-about-gamergate/30252/

Well, in a surprising twist, after getting into a debate with, among others, BethMetalDeath, Ubiquitousidiot and me on Twitter - one which MrShikaki later joined - Buckingham issued us and any other participants in the discussion the following challenge:

>Then let me propose something. Can you collaborate with Beth and other contributors to this thread & sum up in 500 words an answer to this question: Why are gamers so aggrieved with the media over the representation of the gaming community?

The conditions were later fleshed out as follows:

>If you could pull something together while the momentum is still rolling, so in the next two weeks, that would be great.

>Re my expectations: I'm more interested in a piece exploring GG and the perceived issues with the media. You can, a f course, reference parts of my original piece that you believe reinforce this view but may be more powerful if you broaden the remit to perceived historic antagonism etc which the comments of the folk on the thread seem to imply.

>Readers of the paper aren't going to want to chase urls so perhaps keep it to 1. Can turn this into a link in the text so other than the trigger word, the www address won't be counted in the 500. Hope that makes sense.

So, in short, a media outlet's given GamerGate an actual chance to respond, with a deadline for submission before the end of next week (Sunday, May 28, 2017), though we're aiming for a few days earlier (Thursday, May 25th or Friday, May 26th) just in case.

Since this is a rare opportunity for us to speak without our words being filtered through the narrative lens, we've spent the last week brainstorming, ironing out the specifics, and trying to write rebuttals which fit within the established parameters that we'll be posting here later for feedback. We've also requested that the mods sticky this thread and have invited /u/WilliamUsherGB and /u/brad_glasgow to participate.

Right now, only my essay's complete (see attached image file), so we're requesting feedback, ideas, and possibly even submissions by anyone interested in taking a crack at it (though, since Buckingham has been communicating with us directly, we're reserving the right to make the final decision on what to submit).

More information will be added as it becomes available.

I was looking through my digging folder and noticed something was missing. The fucking GAMERS ARE DEAD articles. I don't have them. I did a search and found this: http://pastebin.com/dWzF8Eqd

Is that a complete list? Were there more?

Considering that I can't be the only person with missing evidence of what gamergate was and who was involved, let's get it sorted out before our anniversary. Here's what I want to see in this thread:

OP FAR-FLAG

Mombot has found a targeted media blitz centred around a suspicious petition regarding the upcoming game Far Cry 5. The articles found thus far all appear to have dropped within a five hour window of each other, as listed here: https://ghostbin.com/paste/rvdm3

Upon some prodding around, Mombot has got into contact with a couple of journos, and an editor behind a few of the articles. He has admitted he found the petition himself, which was posted in a then-Public, now suspiciously Private Facebook group, which the average person, read: us, cannot access. Even more suspicious, it appears to be modded/admin'd by several high ranking people with the journo and games industry itself

WE MAY HAVE A SMALLER GJP ON OUR HANDS

Step 1: Timeline

http://archive.is/JHdKN

We know it was first posted on 25th May.

It was posted at least once on Reddit on 27th May.

https://archive.fo/3qTAb

But it only picked up steam today (30th May).

Smaller blogs ran it:

https://ghostbin.com/paste/rvdm3

Cogs Connected ran it first.

When did the articles drop? What minute/hour? Could someone have seen someone else's article and wrote their own in time? If the time is too short, it points towards GJP-esque groups.

Step 2: How is IGN Connected?

Brian Altano is the Admin of Podcast Beyond, a Facebook Group that is now private:

http://archive.is/dOkiM

http://archive.is/f6Jrn#selection-1349.0-1349.43

The author of one of the articles (please confirm who Shaun is and what his website is) says he got the news from there. But won't say who (a logical thing if he things GG would harass the person, if it wasn't for the fact he was a cunt with how he responded- clearly aGG).

How is IGN linked to all this?

If they are, are they/one of them the orchestators, or an attempt at a story for themselves/political motivation that span out of control?

Step 3: How soon did Ubi employees respond?

Did they respond fast enough to indicate they knew about this before they would logically have heard of it?

Those who heard of it after the petition gained steam (100+ sigs or so) probably did hear of from Twitter. But dig around.

Any link to Ubi or advertising/shilling agencies who could have started this?

Step 4: Check comments for signs of bots

https://www.change.org/p/ubisoft-cancel-far-cry-5/c?source_location=petition_show

Check for signs of Bots signing it, SJWs, or even allies of the original petition maker. People signing it now are doing it for laughs or blatantly false-flagging (to the point it's no longer an effective false flag). Even the SJWs are signing to leave hateful comments. But look at the initial ones to look for signs of bots, or even familiar names (i.e. the person created their own petition then contacted friends/colleagues to do the first few sigs).

Bare in mind- you don't need to leave a message, so there's no guarantee anyone linked to this will leave a comment (other than egotism or desiring to false-flag with negative racist-gamer style comments)

Youtube and Google under assault from the MSM

With the abject fucking failure by the MSM to make any real, meaningful impact on big youtubers like PewDiePie, it looks like they are extending their smear campaign to YouTube via slamming Google, to an evidently much greater effect.

While I have my reservations about defending Google, this is a case where they have not done anything wrong. They simply have the scale to put MSM out of business within the next few generations.

While I don't think they will succeed in killing YouTube, they may use this event to leverage quite a bit of control over who is and isnt allowed to have video monetization, or even further control on what videos are allowed to show up on youtube.

I think this is worth a counter-operation. Question is, what can we do?.

Nerd Poker

Clique involving people in the film, television, video game, comic book industries as well as several geek/nerd personalities. Has been around since the mid-2000s.

"Nerd Poker is a collective of creative individuals from the film, entertainment and game industries who all share a love for video games. Formed in 2006, Nerd Poker began as a group of friends who regularly played games on-line and shared an affinity for identifying progressive entertainment properties. The network has since cultivated a new and unique platform for creative projects, collaboration and business to take place between Hollywood and game creators.

House of Game presented by Nerd Poker will be the first official showcase of its kind that will bring the leading professionals from both Hollywood and video game industries together.

The founding members of Nerd Poker are Kevin Chang, Justin Marks, Ben Fritz and Derek Douglas, with partners Tom Ham, Zach Schiff-Abrams and Ford Gilmore."

In light of Playtonic's less than stellar way of dealing with any issues that Jon Tron may or may not have raised outside of Playtonic's control, many kickstarter backers have been enquiring how to get their money back. Forums are being shut down and discussion is being quashed due to the consumer/backer backlash and funder's questions have either been ignored or simply ridiculed.

Dragons, Hugos and Sad Puppies

Nominations have opened for the second Dragon Awards for Science Fiction + Fantasy:

http://application.dragoncon.org/dc_fan_awards_nominations.php

Includes categories for books, comics, TV, vidya, etc - it's free to nominate, deadline is 24th July 2017.

Dragoncon itself is 1st - 4th Sept in Atlanta - http://www.dragoncon.org/

The Hugos have opened their nominations too:

http://www.worldcon.fi/wsfs/hugo/

>Those who joined one of the qualifying conventions before the start of January will have already received their unique personalised link to make nominations. (31 January was the cutoff date to join the qualifying conventions in order to nominate; Worldcon 75 members who join after that date will be able to vote on the Final Ballot when it is announced, but will not have nomination rights.)

If you're eligible to vote you should have received your 'unique personalised link' so that link above is pretty much useless. However, this year they've changed the voting rules because reasons:

http://www.worldcon.fi/wsfs/hugo-new/

So how that will effect the final ballot we'll have to wait and see.

This year, Worldcon is in Helsinki, Finland, on 9th - 13th August:

http://www.worldcon.fi/

Meanwhile, Sad Puppies 5 is led this year by author Sarah Hoyt (last year was Kate Paulk backed up by Hoyt and fellow author Amanda Green) - who's going with the idea that it's better to ditch the Hugos and focus on supporting the Dragons. After the Hugos clique showed what they're about the last 2 years, it's probably best to leave them to self-destruct. That, and Hoyt has said better not to waste any more money on them - voting in the Hugos is not free.

As usual, expect butthurt and pre-planned narrative Misogyny! from socjus they really are triggered by anything Puppy related - especially as the awards dates draw nearer.

GamerGate2.0

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE RIDE WAS OVER …THE CORRUPT MSM SUCKS YOU BACK IN

Pewdiepie has gone full /pol/ ironic shitposter, pointing out how the MSM takes things out of context, by using Nazi memes, which the MSM, without a shred of self-awareness, dutifully took out of context to smear him

Milo is a victim of a pedo and didn't make perpetual victimhood the center of his life and is someone who can laugh at at himself, instead of having his life revolve around becoming one of the twisted, self-stigmatized victims of pedophilia that feminists feed off of like lesbian trans-dimensional psychic vampires.

I don't have to tell you the timing of these incidents, with the old-media smearing two of the biggest new-media superstars, is in now way a coincidence.

Just Pewdiepie, being smeared as a Nazi could've taken care of itself with PDP's 53 million newly-redpilled fans, but now we have a full-blown happening on our hands.

With the MSM with the mainstream equivalent to GJP mailing list doing coordinated hit-pieces attacking both Pewdiepie and Milo, love them or or think they're shit ecelebs, we effectively now have #GamerGate 2.0: Electric Boogaloo

I was asked for information on GamerGate and was going to point someone to the wiki, but when I go to

it appears to be compromised.

The normal site gamergate.me appears to be reposting spammy-looking ads from these accounts:

GamerGate Panel at Archon 41

Hey everyone, I'm happy to announce that one of the oldest geek culture conventions in the United States, Archon, will be hosting a GamerGate panel. The convention will run from Friday, September 29th through Sunday, October 1st, though I don't yet know the exact date or time of the panel. The convention will be held at the Gateway Center in Collinsville (Illinois), less than twenty minutes from Saint Louis and just over four hours away from Chicago. Tickets are currently only $55 for a weekend pass, but you can also get one-day passes for much cheaper.

The panel will open with a discussion on what GamerGate means to us (the panelists and the audience) and how we got involved. From there we will give a presentation on the history of GamerGate and the core arguments and principles that both sides of the debate embody. Much like my Arch Anime panel, we'll encourage audience participation and a healthy back and forth about the various ideas and events related to GamerGate, the games industry and social justice in gaming.

This will be my third time hosting a GamerGate panel, having previously ran panels at Arch Anime 2016 and Natsucon 2016. A friend of mine who is neutral on GamerGate and who has argued that both "SJWs" and "anti-SJWs" have become equally authoritarian, has expressed interest in representing a more neutral perspective. I've also reached out to my friend and fellow #GGinSTL organizer, gladiatorskull, to possibly be a panelist, though if he gets involved, will likely just help with the logistics and setup.

The convention would also like me to find an anti-GamerGate panelist if possible, though I believe that may prove difficult. With that being said, I have reached out to an anti-GamerGate person on Reddit, who had previously attended my Natsucon panel, to see if they are interested. If any GamerGhazi or anti-GamerGate people are reading this and are interested in possibly representing a more "anti-GamerGate" or "pro-social justice" perspective, feel free to reach out to me.

If anyone is interested in attending, feel free to request off work, book a hotel room and/or book a flight now. Hotel rooms in the immediate area are likely be booked by now, since Archon books extremely fast and is a massive convention. You may be able to book a hotel room within 20-45 minutes of the convention center though. Assuming there aren't any super interesting panels or events immediately following the panel, we'll probably head to the bar to relax and continue the discussion with anyone interested (on either side). Hope to see you shitlords there!

Gawker confirms #GG cost them a million+ dollars

Interesting happening.

https://archive.fo/x2KXj

The Verge did a piece citing an anonymous Gawker source claiming we did 7 million dollars in damage to them with Operation: Disrespectful Nod.

A couple of ex-Gawker bigwigs chime in on Twitter and say "No, it was only one million." Possibly referring only to 2014 by the way one Tweet is worded.

Humorously they also twitched at the thought of encouraging us by giving out the actual dollars in damage done, all the more reason to lowball it hard.

#OPRepopulate

It has become regularly obvious that many people feel tired and uninterested in gamergate lately, mainly because of the slowness, if not stillness of the activism it might imply.

Sending emails doesn't seem to cut it for them anymore; aside from not being enough, it looks as if it doesn't get anyone as fired up or involved as before.

I BELIEVE IT COMES FROM A LACK OF ACTIVE POPULATION

Twitter drama is retarded, and sadly it is the only source of activity in the quietest days of the tag. Faggots like ralph keep using it even to shit on it or in hopes that they will finally receive attention, when they deserve both contempt and spit.

An efficient solution would be to reassemble and discuss your hopes, disappointment or joys. It is about what has been accomplished and what needs to be done to ensure gamergate does end.

For what our opposition doesn't seem to gather, is that all of us would love for this ordeal to finally end; but it cannot until the complete system we are going through doesn't get fixed and cured from ideologues, pseudo-intellectuals and narcissistic sociopaths.

>BRING FRIENDS BACK

You have met with many along the way I am sure; if they appear to have left or grown disinterested, talk to them about their presence still being appreciated.

Remain polite and friendly; keep examples of the still current air of bullshit gawker media and their buddies are forcing upon everyone; showcase victories, and establish new hope; give them a chance to merely stop if they so wish, but remain open to show them their "bad times" were anecdotes more than any actual genuine mindset.

>USE THE TAG

#GamerGate, like #TorrentialDownpour, got abused by bots and selfish cunts who wanted the attention brought back to themselves; take the tag back.

As soon as you talk about games journalism, whether positively or negatively, use the hashtag; do not overtly spam it, for example when having a twitter conversation that requires several tweets, don't go crazy and use it in every single one; still never lose an occasion to do it whenever possible; browse the tag itself, tweetdeck or private lists allow for very easy looks at it; create if necessary a secondary account that you can shill here or on other GG forums to RT and like anything you believe is worth spreading.

>VISIT YOUR NEIGHBOURS

As lame as it can be, reddit remains seemingly the heart of the action. Much more prone to drama than 8chan, it can be brought back to action and thoughtfulness if helped correctly. The same can be said of Voat (although the main GG hub is trampled by goons) or even twitter.

Make friends and remain friendly; do not associate with obvious shills and invite others to do the same; make a unique account on each forum instead of several, for replying to yourself would discredit every single one of your posts; don't hesitate to "gift" things like upvotes or likes or whatever else, as dumb as that might sound, to posts you find sensible; be motivational, helpful, eloquent and well-informed; do not forget to visit other places that aren't dedicated to GG, and calmly and without sperging out about it, mention its values or goals, and invite newcomers to seek information right.

>PUSH

We need your help, and that means we need everyone's.

Remind people that they are both welcome and important; tell anyone losing courage that it is fine to take a rest, but that you're hoping they'll come back with a new bite; always see the positive outcome of all situations; have fun and be fun to have around yourself; if needed, keep old victories or MAYMAYS handy to share; be willing to apologize or be self-critical; remember wise words like "trust but verify" and other clever idioms; don't hesitate to teach their values.

Hyperextended Dimensions of The Societal Divide

I've been nibbling on this for a few days and felt the need to put it down in text before I start forgetting parts of it. While I try not to blog here, it also seemed shitty that any other place should be my go-to for sharing it first. I also have the flu right now, so please forgive the inevitable typos.

One of the tenets of American political thought is that we tend to divide ourselves, or perhaps more accurately perceive an existing division, along a political spectrum line. On the Left you have liberalism, socialism, communism, atheism, globalism, antifascism, etcetera. On the Right you have fascism, nationalism, religious dogmatism, authoritarianism, anticommunism, etcetera. Each person, it is believed, falls somewhere on this line as a result of their personal political beliefs, and that the distance between people on different sides of the center give rise to the sociopolitical divides in society.

In recent years, a more nuanced view of this divides the line into a 2-dimensional spectrum. Left and Right are represented on the horizontal center, with a new axis, Libertarian <> Autoritarian complimenting it as the vertical center axis. Thus a person have some degree of "ethical mobility" with their political beliefs, able to choose an individualist interpretation maximizing freedom (Libertarian Left or Libertarian Right) or a forcefully-imposed, collective interpretation sacrificing freedom (Authoritarian Left or Authoritarian Right).

The most recent alteration of this classical political-divide theory also includes some contemplation of a spectrum that more resembles a "U" shape, appropriately named the "horseshoe theory", that attempts to demonstrate that the farthest ends of the traditional 1-D political spectrum tend to be so united by their use and acceptance of Authoritarianism that they have more in common in methods than they differ in goals. To wit, being oppressed for the good of the nationalist Fatherland is just as bad as being oppressed for the communist Motherland, and the methods of oppression do not differ by much.

This is a basic representation of the classical American view of the political divide.

The Death Of The Quake Community?

I was searching for some old-ass files when I stumbled across this editorial published on PlanetQuake in December 1998:

http://web.archive.org/web/19981205234750/http://planetquake.com/editorials/llama.shtm

The Death Of The Quake Community?

Decline of Respect and Good Spirits in the online community

>The days when you were what's regarded as a newbie - fragile, confused, and wondering why the hell you moved and fired half a second after you pressed those buttons. With good chance, someone that knew how to play helped you out. Gave a helping hand, told you how to play, and wasted the living pulp out of you afterwards.

>I am sure all of you have seen what are referred to as "llamas" - losers of all losers, or, lamers. Frequently they act like a righteous bastard - fill the chat screen with nasty stuff; shoot at team mates on teamplay mods (though it's debatable whether the guy just thought it was DM);

>They've always mucked up the game for everyone involved, but most of all they muck it up for the new players, who would most likely find their behavior intolerable. The community just tries to ignore them, hoping that they go away. Unfortunately, they won't go away. Worse, their number is growing, not just within the Quake community, but throughout online gaming.

>After a while, I got tired of the people that seemed to enjoy making an ass of themselves. I knew there weren't much that I could really do, but hell, it couldn't hurt. I went ahead and stuck ten or so suggestions that people might want to follow while playing online games, gave it a format which I thought (at the time) was decently elegant, and released it - Quetiquette.

>The rules did span out from the obvious (which I wrote down) to more down towards respect - not shooting the guy who's obviously showing that they're gone by facing a wall, etc.

>There were, of course, those that complained, saying I was posting "rules" and that he didn't have to follow them if he didn't want to. Apparently, those that do use bad action don't see it in themselves, or don't find the actions wrong.

>What are we to do, short of sending everyone you despise a packet of bombs? There really isn't much to do, which is the bad thing. Educating works at times, but not always.

>For now, education seems to be the best bet - if the new ones can be spared of the dark side, more the better.

Remember, Gamergate is about fixing the industry. To help do that, changing the culture that produced SJW is necessary. Some of the people who push SJW education and manipulators may also be tied to this (either part of it, or using it to get blackmail to push their own agendas).

However, we can all fight for GG in our own way.

OP: Secret Recipe - Exposing Liberal Media's Formula.

First, read pic 1 related.

Yes this is probably born from research into comedy, but it doesn't stop how it's being used.

I thought the "hypnotic" television ideal was fucking stupid- but it's right. At least for idiots.

It's how AAA games are built now, constantly drip feed small victories, rather than building up for a bigger one in exchange for effort.

And just like AAA- they don't need the informed consumer to fall for it- they just need the other idiots pumped out of the borderline maddening education system, which assults them with so much useless info and bad lessons, anything that gives them that drip-feed of positive feedback is going to be more engrossing than true study.

However, this revelation comes with a catch- pulling back the curtain and explaining it.

We've all had a moment where we don't realize how shit something is until someone explains it. The "emperor's new clothes" realization.

We can break the "idiot's lantern".

We can break MSM conditioning via comedy.

Not only making the opinions spouted on those shows coming under more fire, but forcing the MSM to change tactics- possibly even double down and have the bottom % of useless idiots that are useless to even them.

And if nothing else- once you know how it's going to go- it gets boring. We can tank their ratings. And others won't copy suit for fear of losing their ratings.

Dig

- See what other shows follow the "20 second snark" formula.

- Study liberal news shows & programming, and work out their formulas. Share your research here of course.

- Once the Spread steps are done and it is taking effect, study how programs double down, change, or give the illusion of change. Don't forget to do the same for new shows that spring up.

Spread

- Make an infograph and spread it on social media- usually on the night an episode of it airs to ensure others see it (So if it's for the Daily Show, post it with #DailyShow). It doesn't have to say "only idiots fall for this"- different people will react to different explanations. Simply presenting the formula can make it boring to some people. Others will need to show the effect it has on "malleable" minds and how bad it is. In typically chaotic GG fashion - do what you think is best and it'll usually work out.

- Even in your day-to-day life, if people ask you about the show, explain you find it too formulaic. Even if they won't admit it, they'll try to spot the formula when they watch it next.

Support

- Support people who have intelligent discussion on politics. Yes, even if there's dumb discussion and it supports anti-SJW, it's no good. Build the house on the rocks- not the sand. If you find a decent political show (that allows the reader time to think and encourages discussion), then shill for it. Clearing the wasteland goes faster when there's new seeds to plant.

A letter from South Korea; THIS IS YOUR FUTURE

Hello, the original gookfag here. It's been a while since I wrote this posts in the image. Here's some archives. I wrote some helpful posts in these thread so read them if you interest in Korean affair.

https://archive.is/XOG8u

https://archive.is/xqqy2

I make this thread to warn you. To warn you that this might really happen in your countries. I feel the happening is nigh. Especially in US.

I'm a former political member and my family served the current ruling party since 70's. I know what i'm saying.

There's some well-known rumor in South Korea among the politic scens in Korea since 60's. The rumor is that the South Korea is political & social experimental field for western investors. A test field for various social experiments.

They say we got the fastest internet in the world because the rich westerners want to see side effects of sudden digital information days. They say we got a female president because they want to see side effects of fanatic social Neo-Feminism.

There is no dominant evidence to back this rumor. But I want to make sure one thing. Every major social events and economic affairs in Korea happens in other countries as well after times. I've seen it all.

And I think these Social Justice & Neo-Feminism is the next event they're experimenting in Korea. The experiment is over when we elected a female president and the introduction to the western country is nigh.

Here's the story.

South Korea's Social Justice and the big brother censorship pretty much escalated into sky high right after we elected the female president, Park in 2013. As you can see from the image, the censorship level of S.Korea is just insane.

A self acclaimed 'Feminist' female president is in charge in Korea currently and we live in SJW dystopia right now.

Countless batshit-insane laws about protect women and children has been implanted. Basically you go prison for at least 5 years and registered as child sex offender if you watch Japanese hentai.

The new Korean anti-porn and the child protection law prohibits any of fictional porns about children. They all threated same as actual child rapists or even worse. You go prison if you see Hentai of any kind of porns that the actor or character 'Seem' to appears as underage.

Because of this insane anti-porn law called '아청법', 15 years old mid-school girl registered as sex offender because she watched Yaoi novel on the internet. 70 years old grandma had to sell her own PC-cafe to pay penalty because a Japanese Hentai manga found one of her PC. She's now homeless and registered as sex offender.

More funny thing is, the porn threated as more heavier crime than the actual rape in Korea. 3 years minimum for rapists and 5 years minimum for porn possesion. 45 of rapists ended up being just suspended sentence but less than a 10% for porn possesion.

Some reference articles;

https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=ko&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Farchive.is%2FXlJCX

This law has been introduced right after election of female president and being praised as the most notable triumph of Park's administration.

I talk you about this law not just because it's crazy insane law, but there are more hidden agenda in this law. This law isn't just about Social Justice movement. Perid.

Last month, anomymous whistle blower revealed that the offficial Hacking & Spyware tool by South Korean National Intelligence Service, has abaility to implant "Child Porn" into any citizen's device.

Operation: #TakeBackADL

The Anti-Defamation League is attacking a cartoon frog because Hillary Clinton attacked it, so they are supporting her and using their reputation to back her up no matter how ridiculous it makes them look and how much it damages the ADL's brand.

MEANWHILE

Look through the ADL's online catalog of hate symbols and you may notice some very prominent absences where you should find groups that want to kill all the Jews.

http://www.adl.org/combating-hate/hate-on-display/list-view.html https://archive.is/aFJcZ

Where are the symbols of the Palestinians? Al-Qaeda? Hezbollah? Hamas? Their symbols are not in the database, but Pepe the Frog is? This is bullshit. The ADL is not doing its own fucking job for the one issue that it is supposed to exist for.

They want to #TakeBackPepe? Let's #TakeBackADL. Fire up the golem. Bagel Lancers, assemble. We're going for a ride.

Unlike GG this is a targeted operation so we have a list of demands.

* Fire Jonathan Greenblatt

* Fire Jinnie Spiegler and anyone else responsible for the ADL's absolute crap "educational" materials

* List the Palestinians as a hate group BECAUSE THEY ARE ONE

* List the Muslim Brotherhood as a hate group BECAUSE THEY ARE ONE

* List Black Lives Matter as a hate group BECAUSE THEY ARE ONE

* List third-wave feminists as a hate group BECAUSE THEY ARE ONE

Methods:

* Send emails to local ADL representatives and local Jewish leaders.

* Recruit that Jewish friend of yours.

* Get involved on social media. If you're not involved in the campaign, at least talk about it.

* Gather and spread evidence and knowledge of anti-Jewish hate groups so you know what you are fighting for and can support your arguments.

To any of our supporters inside the ADL, DO NOT RESIGN. That never works. Instead: Spread info, leak info, take back your organization from the inside.

Next step in clickbait & moral panic: Gaming is 2Islamiphobic2?

Reposting from a /v/ thread.

So, you should all know from your explorations into feminism from the GG shitstorm, that feminist apologia has striking authoritarian parallels to Islamic apologia. However, as it relates to vidya, I've just found the golden missing link.

http://www.oyunlardaislamofobi.com/EN/?lang=EN

Give this thing a watch; it's ridiculous. Apparently it was put together by the Turkish Minister of Sports. Now, this isn't enjoying much ~journalistic~ presence, but there's nothing to say that this won't be the next angle the lying media hits in order to smear gamers and the viddy industry, so, well… Consider yourselves warned in advance.

The video is full of grasping at straws, but that never stopped the MSM before.

This could be their next step (ironic, since the EU-shit-storm and Shillary's desire to import them is making resentment for them grow more and more. Especially now "deplorables" know they aren't the only one- or a minority).

Prepare yourselves, just in case. Dig into their "sources" and expose them as bullshit.

/gamergatehq/ Meta Thread - Maybe the Most Important Ever

YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE! YOUR INPUT IS NEEDED!

Greetings anons. Its been a while since we bothered with a board meta thread, and this is the first one in approximately five? months I think.

You know the reason why. Until the recent CON leaks and GG anniversary got people interested, our board was so slow we were actually clear off the first page of the board list more than 80% of the time. During that time, the staff never left, and kept an eye on the board for the usual antics of bump spammers and CP bots, but its pretty undeniable that we have gone a long time without much steam. And that is partly why we're here in this thread.

A very long time ago when this board was first made, I made an exposition to anons about the board's purpose. This was done in an effort to bolster trust in the rather shaken users of /gamergate/ who had just lost their second board to a corrupt admin and his troll friends. A major part of this exposition was a promise: That if a more suitable alt board ever arose and the majority of the community wanted to move, I would close my board and move with them to avoid splitting the GG community.

That time may be coming, and every one of you has a say in it.

The situation:

A person who was once a mod candidate for GGHQ is launching a new #GG hub board on 8chan soon. I spoke with them several days ago and dropped a little preliminary information on /v/ about it. More details have been made available to me, and it looks like this is actually going to happen.

Why this is important:

There has been no shortage of wannabe #GG boards. From /gamergatehb/ to revolt and many in between, a cavalcade of alt boards has rotted on the vine while we held our own for a year and a half. Despite this, the meme of "cuckhq" spread across 8chan and Twitter, and its not an exaggeration to say that our board's bad reputation keeps a lot of anons out. This factor is, I believe, in no small part responsible for how slow we have been in recent months.

Those of you here from the beginning know how this came to be. It started even in the first days of the board, when Ayyteam raided us constantly with spam while shit-talking the board on any platform that would listen, and continues even into recently with the fight against the Cancerfags and their co-opted imageboard site. While we won the war to keep their faggotry from taking over our board in the short term, the long-term damage they've done by their smear campaign has damaged our viability. Feel free to disagree with this, but its how I personally feel.

The reason we fought that war, and why I never capitulated as BO to any of these well-known assholes, is simple: The underhanded cocksuckers deserve nothing but contempt. For the way they fooled the users of /gg/ and /gamergate/ into believing their boards were free, for the way they betrayed #GG and all of us by destroying those boards, for their underhanded and desperate tactics to hold onto power on the boards at any cost, and for finally showing their true colors as wannabe e-celebs, self-interested political shills, trolls, doxers, spammers, hackers, and more. God only knows where we would have ended up if they had managed to set us up for failure even one more time. To quote a man with a fine beard, my reply has always been "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"

So let me get to the point.

For the first time, a known party (as much as one can know an anon, anyway) wants to make an alt board to GGHQ. The reasons why are much of what I described above. They think a fresh board, much more open to general political and games industry discussion as well as OPs and digs, would reinvigorate the community, and I don't see a lot of reason to disagree. Say what you will about KiA - they've kept active by making their tent bigger, though they still suffer under the general limitations of lolreddit.

What I know.

Their board is supposed to be a much more general #GG board, much in the flavor of the original /gg/, minus the cancerous cabal behind the scenes. The idea was explained to me as

>some rules to contain the worst autism, more than revolt has but waay less than you with only two or maybe three janitors."

Also bare minimal containment threads, forced anon enabled, no blocking of TOR and some other stuff I'm forgetting. Basically it sounds like a big /v/-/pol/ hybrid with a heavy slant towards #GG.

What I know about the BO.

They're definitely old #GG from before the Exodus. They knew quite a bit about Thidran's circle of faggots and the background shit with them and revolt, and I passed them evidence of the things they didn't know. And they don't do IRC or streams this was a condition of me taking this seriously btw and I trusted them enough to offer a mod slot on this board at one time. I think they understand what they're getting themselves into, which is very important.

As far as I'm concerned, I have no serious objections to their plan. The kicker is that, if their board takes off, I'm obligated by my promise to this place to direct folks there and avoid fracturing the community. This isn't another hostile takeover attempt for me to REEE at. After filling me in on some information a while back, I talked with them again and they're pretty set on doing this soon. If so, a choice is going to have to be made at that time.

FYI I don't plan to abandon GGHQ fully if this winds up happening. I'll hang onto it as a fallback board in the off chance that something ever happens to the new one. I'm not going to piss this place into the wind and leave everyone hanging if shit goes south someday.

What say you, anons?

THE ENTIRE LEFT HAS DECLARED WAR ON THE INTERNET, FUN, THOUGHT-CRIMES, AND GAMERGATE

Change. Of. Plans.

Gamergate is back to literally raping hundreds of womyn every day, while hit-pieces are being put out by the hour about the worse-than-ISIS-terrorists-of-GG, shills are out in force in the # and defeatism shilling here possibly paid by Shillery's PAC, GGR continue their own brand of Acid-sempai please notice me semen-swilling shilling here, and everything else higglty piggilty on social-media.

BASED GABEN BLOWS OUT INDIE DEVS!

=Indie devs BLOWN THE F*** OUT!=

Archive: http://archive.is/ZE5KY

"Under the previous system, Steam customer reviews came from two sources. On one hand, you had reviews from customers who had purchased the game on the platform. On the other hand you had users who had obtained CD-keys for the game. There are plenty of legitimate ways to obtain a key, for example, from the developer for backing the game on Kickstarter, or as part of a Humble Bundle. But the fact is that there exists a black-to-grey market where keys are given out for the purposes of manipulating reviews."

And here is the salt…

"Some developers have also pointed out that they see more harm coming from fraudulent reviews on the players side. Generally users are more motivated to leave negative reviews than positive ones, with a silent majority of happy players often just getting on with playing the game and not taking the time to leave feedback .

Negative review bombing from players can come from personal grudges, but also, as was the case with this year's Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, be motivated by bigotry or culture-war controversy."

So… Negative reviews are the fault of the GamerGoobers…

I am so diamond right now, I'm disrupting the world economy.

Proof Revolt used spambots to attack Torrential Downpour

Looks like @MEGATRON_1488 (CthuluGames), @WildGooseAbuse and @AgoristArtist were behind the spamming of #TorrentialDownpour. Many of the bots share the personalities of their creators/purchasers, and several of the bots link to what appears to be MEGATRON/CthuluGames's ebay store. And if you look, MEGATRON deleted nearly ten thousand tweets in the past month alone and scrubbed the bots twitter accounts as well. Even MEGATRON/CG's profile says "controller of many bots." It's possible they are all controlled by MEGATRON_1488 and he is trying to frame AgoristArtist and WildGooseAbuse. Keep the hell dig going and expose them.

Online News Association digging thread

The Online News Association (ONA) held its 2016 conference yesterday where Rose Eveleth plugged the Crash Override Network at one of the sessions. http://archive.is/Pe6XY

We have had a few people hop into their hashtags #ONA16 and #ONA16doxx to correct the record, but this is all over already so nothing more needs to be said.

Rose Eveleth was involved in Shirtstorm, where the comet lander scientist Matt Taylor was forced to apologize for wearing a shirt that an artist lady friend of his had patterned after Barbarella, Queen Of Space and its many imitations. On Twitter she accused Taylor of making women feel unwelcome in science by wearing a woman-designed shirt featuring popular iconography of strong empowered women. https://archive.is/Xl9Zv

We have a bonus censorship story where the Atlantic's moderators banned someone for saying the title of Eveleth's blog was just as offensive (if not more so) than Taylor's shirt.

All 1702 pages can now be searched through instead of just being still images. ClearScan has sharper text, though it does have two fewer results on "gamergate" due to the way it scanned it and replaced fonts. Use either one or both.

THE AMERICAN INTERNET ENDS IN 27 DAYS

What is Happening?

First Amendment rights will no longer apply to the Internet on October 1st, 2016. Obama is handing control of the DNS to the world on October 1st.

You just saw the effects of this from YouTube. Websites are forced to change their rules and ToS or face termination by foreign countries outside the countries in which their servers actually reside.

Why is this Happening?

>Wait, how does Obama hand over the keys of the internet?

The DNS Server that controls the entire internet (Everything with a .com at the end, or .org. Like youtube.com, gamefaqs.com) was controlled by the United States

On October 1st, they relinquish control of the DNS protocol to all the foreign bureacracies of the world.

The practical effect on this is that it means other countries besides the United States can take down websites without having to go to the U.S. beforehand, which has had a history of protecting its First Amendment rights.

If the U.N. wants to take down a website for hate speech, they can do so now without any intervention by the U.S. This also means all websites that exist within DNS (this means gamefaqs.com) must answer to the laws of ALL countries, not just one.

Doesn't matter where in the world your website/server is anymore, you must respect the laws of all countries or be taken down.

Since the U.N. bans hate speech, that's out the window and so YouTube is forced to do this

Republican Senator Ted Cruz, who lost the Republican Primary to Donald J Trump, has launched a countdown clock

https://www.cruz.senate.gov/internetcountdownclock/

Republicans are fighting to stop this deal, but they need to get past Obama's presidential veto before they can do it. Some democrats will need to be red-pilled on this issue or else it's getting veto'd

What can we do?

YOU'VE GOT THE LOGS, NOW UNLEASH THE DOGS: Operation Blitzkrieg Log

The leaked CON logs have given us an unbelievable amount of ways to attack multiple targets, including LW, her clique, and gaming journalists that helped cover their asses and reported their false stories.

Henceforth, this thread is for fleshing out the various different targets and ways we can use the logs to bite back.

Keep this gravy train going. Keep the threads about this alive on /v/, /pol/ and anyone else willing to pitch in

Let's start with this, the first idea of attack:

POSSIBLE COURSE OF ACTION

FUCK OVER THE JOURNO CLIQUE THAT HELPED MAKE LW LOOK INNOCENT

There were multiple reports, most importantly from Polygon and Kotaku, about the Polaris Game Jam being shafted. Polygon's article in particular used Zoe as a source for the story.

http://archive.is/pgfMp

Since we've got admittance she screwed over the event, we could do two things. Email campaign to knock down advertisers, or press for an edit of the article that says Zoe was the one that messed everything up.

Kotaku's Nathan Grayson also covered the story, exactly one day before he gave $800 to her, without proper disclosure, of course.

http://archive.is/69wcr

Her newest thing is being sponsored by Taco Bell, right? This one is kind of just for kicks, but it would be fun to get Taco Bell to back off in sponsorship.

EMAIL WEAPONRY

Two strategies for doing that.

The direct method is to use any segment of the leaks that how much of a shitty person she is, specifically using her admittance of trashing the Polaris Game Jam. That's important, because it was sponsored by other companies. They put their money into the event and she fucked them out of it.

You can use that to show that she's pure poison for corporate.

The more round-about, yet probably more effective method is to do that, but to email the companies that sponsored the game jam first. Pepsi/Mountain Dew. I guess Disney if you want but they blow their money on gay shit all the time so I don't know if they'll care.

NO MATTER WHICH METHOD YOU CHOOSE

Be sure to include excerpts from these articles in your emails. Can't risk some lazy bloke checking the emails to not click on the links.

These are important, as they contextualize the logs and are more effective than sending them walls of IRC text

http://www.oneangrygamer.net/2016/08/chat-logs-reveal-zoe-quinn-admitting-to-sabotaging-polaris-game-jam/10429/

>Crash Override Network Really Is a CON

https://www.allthink.com/1607896

Now, you could also drag FF in the mud since they fund CON, but that's probably not a good idea now that they've faded into obscurity.

HARD MODE

Another potential target for chaos is within the participants of the game jam itself. If we can find out who got burned in that shitshow, we could send relevant parts of the leaks to them. Believe me, Indie hipsters tell their friends about all their stupid fucking problems, so if they find out that one of their own burned them, that will spread within the indie community.

Matti Leshem, Aaron Umetani, and Jason Serrato are three individuals that were involved in the game jam in some important way, and got burned in part because Zoe sabotaged the event

All of this compounds on the fact that Zoe was a darling of the Twine Revolution and Difference Engine Initiative, which were two attempts by indies to democratize video game production. In other words, make it so people who don't have the skills to build an actual game can make shitty text adventures and still call them games without being laughed at.

Not only does she not have any talent, but she schemes behind everyone's back to fuck them over for her own gain too.

Jesus, and that's just leaning on the Polaris shit, there's still so much ammo we can shoot everywhere

I remember seeing a graph linked on reddit that had game genres separated by how much either sex was in the audience. For example, women leaned towards MMORPGs.

TOP LEL

TIME: How Trolls Are Ruining the Internet

https://archive.is/e3sSs

>Trolling is, overtly, a political fight. Liberals do indeed troll–sex-advice columnist Dan Savage used his followers to make Googling former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum’s last name a blunt lesson in the hygienic challenges of anal sex; the hunter who killed Cecil the lion got it really bad.

>But trolling has become the main tool of the alt-right, an Internet-grown reactionary movement that works for men’s rights and against immigration and may have used the computer from Weird Science to fabricate Donald Trump. Not only does Trump share their attitudes, but he’s got mad trolling skills: he doxxed Republican primary opponent Senator Lindsey Graham by giving out his cell-phone number on TV and indirectly got his Twitter followers to attack GOP political strategist Cheri Jacobus so severely that her lawyers sent him a cease-and-desist order.

>The alt-right’s favorite insult is to call men who don’t hate feminism “cucks,” as in “cuckold.” Republicans who don’t like Trump are “cuckservatives.” Men who don’t see how feminists are secretly controlling them haven’t “taken the red pill,” a reference to the truth-revealing drug in The Matrix. They derisively call their adversaries “social-justice warriors” and believe that liberal interest groups purposely exploit their weakness to gain pity, which allows them to control the levers of power. Trolling is the alt-right’s version of political activism, and its ranks view any attempt to take it away as a denial of democracy.

>In this new culture war, the battle isn’t just over homosexuality, abortion, rap lyrics, drugs or how to greet people at Christmastime. It’s expanded to anything and everything: video games, clothing ads, even remaking a mediocre comedy from the 1980s. In July, trolls who had long been furious that the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters starred four women instead of men harassed the film’s black co-star Leslie Jones so badly on Twitter with racist and sexist threats–including a widely copied photo of her at the film’s premiere that someone splattered semen on–that she considered quitting the service. “I was in my apartment by myself, and I felt trapped,” Jones says. “When you’re reading all these gay and racial slurs, it was like, I can’t fight y’all. I didn’t know what to do. Do you call the police? Then they got my email, and they started sending me threats that they were going to cut off my head and stuff they do to ‘N words.’ It’s not done to express an opinion, it’s done to scare you.”

>Because of Jones’ harassment, alt-right leader Milo Yiannopoulos was permanently banned from Twitter. (He is also an editor at Breitbart News, the conservative website whose executive chairman, Stephen Bannon, was hired Aug. 17 to run the Trump campaign.) The service said Yiannopoulos, a critic of the new Ghostbusters who called Jones a “black dude” in a tweet, marshaled many of his more than 300,000 followers to harass her. He not only denies this but says being responsible for your fans is a ridiculous standard. He also thinks Jones is faking hurt for political purposes. “She is one of the stars of a Hollywood blockbuster,” he says. “It takes a certain personality to get there. It’s a politically aware, highly intelligent star using this to get ahead. I think it’s very sad that feminism has turned very successful women into professional victims.”

>A gay, 31-year-old Brit with frosted hair, Yiannopoulos has been speaking at college campuses on his Dangerous Faggot tour. He says trolling is a direct response to being told by the left what not to say and what kinds of video games not to play. “Human nature has a need for mischief. We want to thumb our nose at authority and be individuals,” he says. “Trump might not win this election. I might not turn into the media figure I want to. But the space we’re making for others to be bolder in their speech is some of the most important work being done today. The trolls are the only people telling the truth.”

>The alt-right was galvanized by Gamergate, a 2014 controversy in which trolls tried to drive critics of misogyny in video games away from their virtual man cave. “In the mid-2000s, Internet culture felt very separate from pop culture,” says Katie Notopoulos, who reports on the web as an editor at BuzzFeed and co-host of the Internet Explorer podcast. “This small group of people are trying to stand their ground that the Internet is dark and scary, and they’re trying to scare people off. There’s such a culture of viciously making fun of each other on their message boards that they have this very thick skin. They’re all trained up.”

The Huffington Post has sensationally censored an article pertaining to questions about Hillary Clinton’s health and banned the journalist who wrote it from posting on their website altogether.

HP has all sorts of bullshit health articles and goes after other politicians' health, but not Hillary. The double standard is the problem.

OBSERVATION TIME!

Alright, so we haveb a few of the old advertisers left and a handful of new, big names.

It appears that Gawker's advertising network has dwindled down to the biggest brand advertisers, probably hedging their bets that these companies are too big to be easily swayed by an anonymous email campaign. Instead of tons of smaller advertisers, the list is almost exclusively the Big Boys club - car makers, credit card companies (it took a year to get Discover to drop) and of course, fucking Amazon - Gawkers most steadfast partners and the only ones still there from the early days of DISNOD.

But sway them we must. Gather contact information and compile tactics and evidence in this thread, then spread the thread link to the hubs and social media.

Shillery is to speak on a certian "videogame contriversy" Thursday

It's not much to go on, but a certain Vice Journalist Blogger received word that:

>HRC is set to deliver remarks Thursday condemning a nebulous group that traces its origins to a video game controversy nobody understands.

NGee, whatever "videogame controversy" could this possibly mean?

It may mean nothing, or GG may be alluded to, or not even mentioned at all, but it would be wise to brace for impact if a bunch of shills and normies come here based on what Shillery says on Thursday.
