"Exclusive"

Hahahahahahaha. She's been on every single fucking platform that is willing to give her a minute of time. She's less exclusive than Hillary Scott and Aurora Snow. (If you don't know who they are, do NOT google them at work!)


Has she been?
She's been discussed relentlessly, but I haven't seen (nor looked for) a single interview with her.

Currently I do not even understand how the book "Lolita" does not fall under this or any written fantasy. (or even Game of Thrones)

Or any comprehensive history book for that matter.

Written != image.

You guys know that computer created child porn is illegal in the US, right?

Anything "obscene" that involves children, real or otherwise, having sex, is illegal. Only Souter had an issue with this. I can't recall the case, it was upheld in 2008 by the SC after being shot down (and rewritten) in 2002. Child pornography is found to be outside the First Amendment. However, these cases hinged on things other than CGI porn.

In any case, any pornographic image of a minor is illegal. Again, art isn't considered pornographic (you can buy plenty of coffee table books of naked 14 year olds), and porn isn't found to be art. Realistic images that are not of an actual minor, meaning stuff that's photoshopped or CGI or well drawn, is illegal if it's found to be obscene. And non-realistic drawings must also be found to be obscene. I'm guessing Manga is non-realistic drawings. And probably often obscene.

This is a good summary. I hadn't heard about that Simpsons case.

Hey, not a bad idea. Let me one up you:

If a comment thread has an article related to GamerGate in it, we talk about Star Citizen. Yes? Yes? YES!

Is it going to be the greatest game this decade, or the greatest game ever?

Jesus, are you trying to break blues? I mean there has to be some theoretical memory limit to a post count after all.

"Chris Roberts hires Anita Sarkeesian as community manager"

Is Derek Smart writing the AI routines? I mean, this is his wheelhouse...

Go have a fucking rally already. Hold hands and sing Kumbaya with the other SJWs where you can all sit in a drum circle and commiserate about how fucking awful the rest of us are because we really don't give a shit about this stupidity - and that's all it is. I have plenty of empathy...for things that actually matter.

No empathy because we won't join the SJW circle-jerk. Holy blue flaming Jesus on a pogo stick! Rolleyes

Even those that hate me have to admit this guy adds the least value here, right?

I mean, come on. All those redundant posts about how evil Apple is but saying women shouldn't be allowed to talk is ok.

I propose that we create a new rule. If a comment thread has an article related to GamerGate in it, we talk about something else like hockey or TV shows we're watching.

Anyone been watching Gotham? What do you think so far? I feel like it has a lot of potential but it's not one of those shows I eagerly wait to watch each week. I've never really been able to get excited about procedurals. For example once Person of Interest became more about the overall plot and less about the number of the week, I liked it a lot more.

I hear terrible things about Gotham. The only shows with me episodes I'm watching at the moment are John Oliver, bobs burgers and south park. Nothing else looks worth the time.

When are archer and Rick & Morty back?

I mean, it's obviously both, but usually a Season Pass is a half-decent sign of confidence.
Of course, being confident something will sell isn't the same as being confident it's good.

Or, "we're confident this is a good game that will be enjoyed by enough people and sell enough copies to support for a good, long time."

I don't understand sexism so it must not exist. Why do you care about things that don't exist?
<continues to poke the Cutter-Bear in the eye>
And someone please quote me...

I paraphrased a bit.

Sexism will always exist. Welcome to the genders of male and female. Learn to cope with it already.

This is true about pretty much everything Cutter ever bitches about.
In standard Cutter form, anything that impacts him directly is a horrible offense and must be rectified. Anything that either doesn't impact him or benefits him is something people need to shut up and deal with.

I don't use "sociopath" lightly, but the dude only cares about himself and has zero empathy for anyone else. Any political, economic or social issue is important only if Cutter deems it so.

GamerGate - Humans lol, does this constitute some sort of quasi internet False Flag playing groups against one another?


I like that they ask him why he liked a hate group on Facebook, and his response is "I don't watch TV, so I need some place to see the news." Yeah, and that's why Strom Thurmond liked the KKK.

During his first campaign to be POTUS I expressed concern about Obama being a member of racist Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years. The general response was just because he was a member doesn't mean he subscribed to everything the pastor preached. Does that not apply here as well?

The problem is that Wright said a whole lot of standard churchy stuff, and some objectionable churchy stuff.

The group that the developer liked on Facebook is solely a hate group. That's their exclusive cause.

I'll wait until Cutter says something reprehensible. On this board, I mean, I'm sure he's off saying something reprehensible wherever he is right now.

Why do you guys keep feeding that troll? Put that clown on ignore and do everyone a favour. Why else do you think he has to snipe or play devils advocate in every single topic he enters? I admit it took me a while to catch on, but he is nothing but a troll and should be ignored.

Cutter wrote on Jun 30, 2014, 12:12:
Why do the PR people keep allowing her to speak when she's only there to be pretty? Everything she just stated only shows why she should have never been promoted in the first place. That's the problem when companies choose looks over talent.

There's no misogyny problem around here, and Cutter is not worth a permaban for being a horrible, reprehensible person, but he's previously said she should not be allowed to speak and should only be allowed to be pretty.
She ran the entire studio, one of the largest studios in the world, but she shouldn't be allowed to speak.

Anyone want to defend Cutter on this?
And someone please quote me so he can do his standard drive-by, say something awful and/or wrong and never, ever return.

hmmm...I own all of them except Ghosts (a huge failure of a game) - and maybe I am getting old as well...as I didn't see ANYTHING in that trailer that would make me want to spend my money on it....

I still say Ghosts was hands down the best single player since the original MW. No infinite spawning, etc.
But the multiplayer was worthless and terrible. Outside of the dog. People mock the dog here all the time, but the dog was an absolute blast in multiplayer. The bots in multiplayer were solid, too. But the maps and perks were so dull.

Amazed people still do that shit.


you got to admit some of the pages out there are wel made -as in doing a good job to confuse people with popups and buttons and stuff..... people want to watch something, see a popup with stuff, you want to watch click yes...... I can see it happen

Yeah, I was trying to download an application to tell me precisely what was using my RAM in a better way than Task Manager a few months ago and the shady site hosting the file was one of those ones that would have a 15 second countdown then pop up "click here to download." Same thing downloading sites have done for ages. Usually, though, they also pop up the download. This one popped up a download link for a Downloader, not the actual program I wanted - I had to click the link for the program I wanted.

Sneaky. And also why I so rarely bother downloading any applications from small devs anymore. If they aren't hosting themselves, then there's a good chance it's on a shady downloading site. Hell, even CNet's Download.com has been shady for at least, what, 10 years? 12? Trying to get you to install Ask.com for every single thing you download?

Bullshit. 'We're Going to Fix This' very pointedly means 'We're Going to Fix This In the Image I Deem Fit' and you and everyone else who's ever read anything she's written knows it.

You don't have to have veto power to get things banned these days, you just have to raise enough of a stink to sway the mob in your favor. It's not a protest for legal action, it's a call to arms for a witch hunt... it's worse than Jack Thompson, because nobody with a clear mind and conscience is going to have to examine facts and succeed with a vote on this. You either go with what she does or get declared a misogynist witch for not supporting her and her witch hunt.

Fixing something doesn't mean censoring or forcing or banning. It means making people realize how what they're doing is lazy and could be made better without much effort.

And I still don't see how her image of "more deep and thought out roles for women" is a controversial image to aspire to.

C'mon guys, really. Do you really think it's just because we can't understand English. REALLY? NKD is obviously an intelligent and moderate poster. Now all of a sudden he lacks basic reading comprehension skills or had trouble with basic English?

Tell me you never heard anyone say "This is why I hate Christianity" when that awful Westboro Baptist Church would make the news. Or that you never heard someone bashing Muslims after 9/11. All members of the Tea Party are racist homophobes, haven't you heard? It is a natural tendency for people to generalize based on what is presented as the face of a culture or movement. It happens all of the time. Sly people will make use of this when trying to garner sympathy for their side and discredit the opposition. That is precisely what people are doing here, and it is so obvious I can't believe that some people don't see it.

They don't have to claim that they feel threatened by everyone for that to be the narrative. By his wording "a perceived threat from Gamersgate" NOT a perceived threat by a few individuals - is clearly meant to discredit an entire movement, not point out that there are a few loonies within it.

I'd hope self-identifying as a gamer is something seen more as a choice than religion.

And you're saying "all members of the Tea Party." But that has "all." Gamers are literally sending death threats to Anita Sarkeesian. Gamers are literally shitting all over Twitter saying women are ruining games.

These are factual statements. It doesn't mean all gamers. And "gamer" isn't really a protected class and I think a lot of people find it odd that some view it similarly to religion.
