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 maPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

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 Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Frequently Asked Questions

>Who is the girl with the red hair and green and purple hoodie?

That's Vivian James, #GG's beloved mascot. She was given to us by a feminist game developer project. We raised over $70,000 dollars to help women make videogames, because the games media refused to promote their project out of friendship with their competitors. As a reward, they let us create a character for their game, and so Viv was born.

>What are "SJWs" and why do you guys hate them?

SJW stands for "Social Justice Warrior." We first met these people a month after #GamerGate started, when the media was slandering us up, down, and sideways. They're the sort of folks who want to gripe about politics at Christmas dinner with the family, and seem to absolutely hate fun and free speech in all their forms. We hate them because they hated us first, and because they came riding to the defense of the games media in droves when we just wanted them to be ethical. Since then many of them have cozied up to the games media itself, even as far as taking over translation studios for Japanese games. If you meet someone with blue hair who calls themselves a feminist and really hates gamers, you've probably met an SJW. They're obnoxious, suck the fun out of the gaming community, and rarely even play games themselves leading many people to want them gone.

>Did you guys really elect Trump and spawn the alt-Right?

You heard that from the media, didn't you? I'm pretty sure they would blame us for Lucifer's fall from Heaven if they thought anyone would believe them. The answer is no, probably not. Although you will find quite a few #GG supporters who support Trump specifically because he calls out the media when they lie.

This thread is a special sticky thread for the purpose of keeping the board catalog tidy by containing gossip, drama, and shitposting.

What goes in this thread:

>Minor SJW news or stories that don't have national impact

>SJW issues that aren't games industry related and that are not operations or digging.

>Twitter gossip that doesn't materially affect #GG

>E-celeb or board drama of a personal nature

Warning: This thread may have content that is Not Safe For Work!

If you feel a thread has extraordinary merit that should be granted an exception from above, you can request a pass by posting it here and reporting the post for mod attention.

All other #GG related content is free to post on the rest of the board.

Welcome, and have fun!

Wikipedia's administrators have begun to clear their political opposition out of the Sarah Jeong dispute through their usual pattern of finding any misdemeanor behavior that can be used to justify claiming that the other side is "disruptive" or "not here" for an indefinite block while allowing their side to get away with anything.

He was then topic-banned by Abecedare for describing the activity of Drmies as "repeated abusive, hasty push of personal agenda by editor who clearly is breaking WP:BADNAC", was blocked by Paul Erik for reopening the AfD after Drmies closed it, and then indeffed by Ian Thomson as "Clearly not here to contribute to the encyclopedia" for asking why he was blocked.

Jimmy Wales is getting shit on by Twitter followers for dissing Jeremy Corbyn and Hamas.

https://twitter.com/jimmy_wales/status/1027606662386016258 https://archive.is/lnkBe

Context: Corbyn was recently exposed as a long-time terrorist supporter. A tabloid had to run the story because the mainstream papers don't think that this kind of thing is news.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6995489/jeremy-corbyns-anti-semite-crisis-dossier/

Background on what Corbyn supports:

http://www.hirhome.com/israel/pal_mov4.htm https://archive.is/xyi3

What makes this extra interesting is that Wales's own expressed point of view would not be welcome on Wikipedia and certainly not around his new friends at the Guardian. There may be consequences for him.

Corbyn is being protected by Black Kite…

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Sir_Joseph#Corbyn

Things are slow as hell all over the #GG front these days. Twitter is slow, /v/ is slow, we are slow.

well, while this is a brainstorming thread, I was thinking about how trying to stay on target on an imageboard is not working. It either turn into a revolt spergfest with no cohesion, and too easily infiltrated by DnC shills as example the numerous threads about their hateboner for Acid (seriously why can't they have a single sticky for that shit?) or a focused board that end up being the pray of all and every attempt to slide it, spam it, shill it, etc.

I like the ID system, but its not enough, I would envision a forum format with registering and login. no names, but ID with number of Posts, because while having a low post count dont mean you are shit, legitimate posters gather post count thru time. Of course any attempt at dismissing an opinion on post number rather than quality of post would not be allowed.

We could have subsection with various focus, a digging one, a meta one, a happening one, news articles, debunking team, etc.

the most useful aspect would be that stuff stays there, no pruning, manual deleting and build up ressources.

but then this whole thing has one major flaw, and that is deciding who runs it, and who is willing. I could not envision Acid nor Cancer Crew having any position in it for obvious reasons.

Mods and staff would also have a form of forced anonimity, with an ID system, with rules about never revealing IRL who they are, not even online handles, cuz that always lead to either circlejerking, or scapegoating

Reminder that Rian Johnson responded (and agreed with) John McIntosh, and that GG is also being namedropped in this James Gunn pedophilia incident.

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:

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)

I know my digging's a bit all over the place here, but each item I look into leads me somewhere else, and I've just got a lot of interconnected stuff that I didn't think would show up in the capacity that it did. I'd suggest that people use this more as a starting point for their own research. As such, I've tried to compile my ideas in a way that they're somewhat comprehensible, but… your mileage may vary.

Went back to look at a source article from the initial Dickwolves Debacle.

>Corvus Elrod

- Interviewed, primarily.

- He later came out as trans, taking the name Branwen Zakariasen. There's a blog about their transition (https://bhaloidam.wordpress.com/), but I found little else in the way of gaming.

>Dierdra "Squinky" Kiai

- Noted as boycotting PAX 2011 over Dickwolves.

- None other than Nathan Grayson wrote a puff piece on her in 2014 (http://archive.is/SivEC)

- Has ties to Maya "Legobutts"

Felix Kramer and Mattie Brice,

as well as Silverstring Media (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1075&v=X0EZl2Aq-8o)

>Courtney Stanton

- Previously covered in >>323202, but there's some things missing

- Did a "troll data analysis" of comments received in the wake of her response to Dickwolves (http://web.archive.org/web/20110211193546/Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

lol, I fucked up my formatting. I can't into 8chan.

For posterity's sake, I'm gonna recommend these future topics to look into (if I don't get around to posting about them later), because I think they're relevant:

- #1reasonwhy (START: https://archive.is/Er4wa)

- #1reasontobe (START: http://archive.is/quYCD, https://www.gdcvault.com/play/1018080/)

- The "Why So Serious?" panel at PAX Aus 2013

Going through this, and having had more sleep since my last dig post, I'm seeing that the ideological conversion of the gaming press was a gradual thing. It was attempted back in 2007 when SA made the comic about Jade Raymond promoting Ass Creed, with some in the press trying to blow it up (notably, people have largely forgotten about it, because it was a non-issue). Dickwolves (the first time) was probably the origin point of when these ideologies got injected. Hell, I remember that was the first time I'd ever seen the term "rape culture." Then came the Jennifer Hepler incident (https://archive.is/xB32b), which added to the pile. And a few months later, Anita Sarkeesian's Kickstarter happened (of note, Sarkeesian already had some media connections, through promotion of her OG Tropes vs. Women series by outlets like Feministing [https://archive.fo/1fcoc] and LA Weekly [http://archive.is/6lVPh]).

The way the press closed ranks around Anita, was something that we wouldn't see again until Dickwolves came back up, and in the aftermath of that, we saw PAX make some changes, like the addition of the Diversity Lounge, and the more bullshit panels about "inclusion tactics" and "Jesus God, being aPost too long.

Just a quick thing.

Remember Scott Madin?

He was actually a mod for Shakesville the whole time: http://archive.is/W4Hrq

Not only that, but he was also, at one point, Facebook friends with Jerry Holkins (AKA Tycho Brahe), and tipped him (and presumably Mike Krahulik) off to the Shakesville post. Pic related.

Not a bombshell, but it's still incredibly interesting.

As far as I'm aware, this is THE first time we've ever seen her talk about anything related to gaming controversies or gamer culture.

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 thaPost too long.

Revealing Valve the "self-organizing company" is a communist shithole ran by untrustworthy and anxious paranoid schizos and manipulated by incompetent bosses, overly-competitive employees and management. Valve, the face of PC gaming is highly compromised. Ever wonder why they haven't done ANYTHING in years? Here we go.

some highlights:

>So-called self-organizing companies have a corporate arm somewhere controlling the entire operation from “above”. Find them and their friends to figure out who has the real power.

>If you’re at a place like this, you must learn who the corporate managers are, who are their friends, and the cliques. They are the ones with real power and everything else is an illusion.

>Another employment tip: Never tell your coworkers or manager that you have a lease, or are locked into anything long term. Leave it ambiguous/private. If they know you’re “locked in” you are opening yourself up to exploitation.

>Another type of temp strategic hire you can make is to recruit a well-known author, a famous dev, or a person with specialized skills (like an economist). Have them write gushingly about their amazing experiences at the company. Once you’re done with them quietly let them go.

>If you run a self-organized firm and you have turned up the anxiety levels too high, your company will become brittle and prone to mass talent flight. Wealthy competitors can come in and make offers and basically steal all your tech and devs right out from under you.

>All legit self-organizing firms have to “leak” an official unofficial Company Manual. It’s got to be slickly made and fun to read. Developer Marketing gurus create these productions to sway new recruits into the Hiring Funnel. Insiders laugh at these things.

Alright you lot of niggers, I looked into the Valve thread and found a shitload of horrific dirty laundry against Valve. It goes into way too much shit for me to even cover, just read a few of the random archives and you'll see what I mean.

Here's a tip Billy, I think this is a big one but the dude intentionally avoids using the word "Valve" to avoid attention but Valve is the only company that he's worked at that's been described by other media outlets as "self-organized":

(too lazy to format the spacing because copy-paste always does this; don't care)

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS

So an ex-Valve employee has been whistleblowing about Valve's mountain of dirty laundry. The reasons seem to be to help new people hired to avoid a lot of pain, and the fact that he just doesn't give a fuck

The company is basically an absolutely horrific and corrupt shithole. Even if you don't care about that sort of thing, here's something that might catch your eye. Valve and specifically its CEO (Gaben is really the only conclusion I could make from that) has, at least up until 2013/14 confirmed been manipulating numerous media outlets. Anything after that is uncertain but likely because this shit doesn't just change for no reason, especially with Steam and Valve doing nothing but going downhill.

Here's some confirmation and proof that he was talking about Valve for any time he mentioned Self-organization:

He intentionally avoids using the word "Valve" to avoid attention but Valve is the only company that he's worked at that's been described by other media outlets as "self-organized":

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.
