Those were probably speakers that sold tickets they'd need refunds for and that had teams working with them. From what I understand, Anita was asked to be at the school and flew down. The only organizers were the school, not her.

At this point, I'm not even certain what you're trying to prove here. If she had rescheduled, what of it? You'd still be all pissy about whatever she said.
And you don't think a major university can't pull strings on the last minute and shift the venue? Strange, it worked fairly well at Waterloo when I was there.

What am I trying to prove? That there are always options, and she opted to "not show up." Even though there was no threat. Besides, making off-hand and useless statements like "you'd still be all pissy" doesn't add anything. If anything, you're making assumptions based on your preconceived bias.

Because it was last minute and finding something like that and organizing it is nearly impossible?
Oh please. If last minute means "several days" then you've got a serious problem. I've seen speakers shift from one venue to another in a 12 hour period. The crowds were 500-2500 people.

I have a really hard time finding fault with her decision. She could have waited for the official investigation, but I guess she felt the CCW law was more serious, because if you're going to conceal a weapon with intent to use it that day you're not going to warn the police beforehand.
So then, why didn't she move the venue to a private hall, theater or something else? She refused to do that, remember public place = CCW in force. But private buildings can restrict that. So now you have the answer, she simply didn't want to.

Question: would anyone frequenting these threads want to go somewhere and give a discussion about gender and games in front of an armed audience?
Why wouldn't you? Or do you think that the guns are going to jump up and start attacking people. Or don't you know that going by even crime stats that legal ccw holders for the most part don't engage in this type of crime. And those that do, are normally mentally unstable and usually on some type of SSRI.

So if you were in charge of campus security, and you received a threat that someone was going to start shooting up your school during someone's presentation, what would you do?
Have it investigated, which was done. By the FBI no less, who declared it a non-credible threat and tell them to carry on. Remember she cancelled because of the CCW policy, not because of anything else.

THAT is the "gamers are dead" that got people so offended?! What in Jesus and Mohammed is so wrong with that?!!!!
No it wasn't "that article" it was 15 articles all in a 24hr period containing 35-45% of the same content.

Uh, did you read that? Nowhere does it say it was a hoax. And Anita said from the start that she canceled it due to concerns about the University security.

edit - I mean, there were real threats. There was no intention to act on them, but ASeven makes it out to seem like Anita made them herself, not that some nutjob called them in.
Right, that's why it said it was a non-credible threat. That's the equivalent of a hoax. She canceled it because of utah's CCW laws end of story. But ASeven never said that she made them up herself, who's making stuff up now?

By the way, anyone catch this? Here's a writer for gawker, saying that gamers should be bullied again. How "progressive of them."

Don't worry there beamer, after all we already know that only #gamergate is issuing threats. That's why boogie2988 is receiving death threats and a pro-gg person was told by police to leave their home. Going by the anti-GG logic, they're fully responsible for not controlling the elements of their movement.

You have absolutely zero sense of humor.
There was no humor in that in the first place. If you thought it funny, I seriously question your ethical and moral standards on applying that to anyone.

You're right. I should have used "name," not "hashtag." As far as I know, no large group of people is identifying as "stopgg2014." But I also haven't seen many people actually call themselves "anti-gg." There's really no organized "anti-gg." There's the stupid gameghazi, but that's 1/10th of the KotakuInAction.

Also, if your movement is so terrible that even ISIS finds it deplorable... ha!
Well you're right, it's just the same clique of sjw's that have launched 6 or 8 other hashes all of which failed miserably. Really there's no organized anti-gg? I guess you missed all those articles a while back, and how lw, lw2, and lw3 all keep injecting themselves back in while trying to direct the narrative.

But if we're so terrible that isis finds it deplorable, I guess that means #stopgg2014 and gamerghazi(who is also using that hash) support rape, murder, genocide, slavery, and ethnic cleansing right? Then again, being "worse" than isis would mean that we're the polar opposite of them. My, my...how telling that is.

This is why I've said they should change their hashtag.
So I guess that means that #stopgg2014 should change their hashtag now, after all they have people who called us "worse than isis" supporting them, and actual isis related tweets in there. I suggest they take #meow.

I heard it referred to as GamerGhazi somewhere. MonicaGamer? WaterGamer?
Oh you mean by various anti-GG individuals. Funny enough you hang around their subreddit long enough and you see exactly the same things that they claim GG is doing, but actually being done by them.
Using bots: Check
Character assassination: Check
Trolling: Check
Death threats: Check
Brigading: Check

Gamerghazi is the anti's side attempt at kotakuinaction.

Because an organization all about extremist Islamic fundamentalism gives a crispy shit about Western video games.
Of course you just happen to miss the irony, not to mention the hypocrisy. Never mind that the anti-gg side has been using GG=Terrorists, GG=worse than isis, etc for several weeks now. But that they're using bots to increase their hash's ranking, and same said bots are also tweeting about islamic fundamentalism. Genius. Going by their logic, they actually support isis.

FYI these threats against AS seem to be coming from Brazil--a game journalist at that. Perhaps she should be thanking #GG at that, since they're the ones who found this out.

Considering you can "rent" botnets for next to no money these days, that doesn't mean much. Hell it takes next to nothing to make your own botnet, it's just as possible that this is someone with a grudge against them waging their own private war with their own botnet as well.

Perhaps this will help you understand why people are so pissed that they are COMPLETELY UNABLE to even have a conversation on the topic they want. You just won't let it go. Every time some asshole on the Internet does something, you hold them up as the official representative of everyone who has concerns about games journalism. You're being used to further a smokescreen, and you don't even care because it gives you an opportunity to rant on one of your favorite topics.

Relevant. Also relevant

Or maybe the are hosting their servers in a place that can't spell the word DDOS protection. There is specialized hardware (relatively cheap, for a data-center) that can stop LOIC attacks with ease.
And we know that it's LOIC how? They're not saying anything, and they could be using syn or ack floods. Blocking and gutting udp and icmp attacks have been easy since '00 since the first round of asshats figured out how to use "ping" to do the same thing.

The same reason why LW and AS keep trying to inject themselves back into it. They like the attention, and thrive on it.

I don't get why they're hailing the addition of four legged creatures as a huge victory. What kind of engine can't support four legged creatures?
Has to do with the skeleton rig mapping more than anything and how flaky it can be when you're doing rig map builds. FB3 is one of those "looks pretty as hell" engines, that does a piss poor job of properly not fucking up skeletons.

26G? Is that all on-disk DLC or something? How are games getting shorter and simpler, yet use up more and more disk space? Don't they use any sort of compression any more?
I'm guessing VO's for other languages. Those add a hell of a lot to the size of games, but so does unoptimized textures.

Ex: The VO's for Bioshock Infinite are 5.6GB in size for the added language supporte.
