Ironic that Creston and Nin are the optimistic ones. You other fellas taking the BluesNews cynicism too far?

You'd think you'd at least confirm that the people you were sending death threats to were at least even remotely related to Gamergate. These guys were one of the earliest competitors to Steam and are still around, sad to see them get treated like that.

Millennia huh? You should probably read up on the central african countries.

Having viewed some videos of this game all I can say is:

That's it?

It is in no way worthy of the hype nor the controversy. It's a pretty blah game and it did not shock or offend in the slightest. Not nearly the goriest game I've seen, nor the most emotionally disturbing. In fact there's zero emotional resonance whatsoever. Completely lifeless.

Maybe when it's like 5 dollars. Even then...

Pretty smart of them to duck the First Amendment and decide the case based on case law regarding mental state and intent. This is one of those things better left loosely defined with regards to the first amendment.

...atheism+...

Wtf is atheism+?

It's like Atheism for radical feminist/SJW types.

The atheist community in general is very dismissive of the kind of magical "my feelings" based reasoning of many SJW positions. Because it reminds them of being just another religion. Feminism especially is incredibly dogmatic and has a lot of sacred cows. It's effectively indistinguishable from a religion. It's got devout followers, deep roots in academia, and is very eager to eject a follower for challenging the status quo. One person's feelings trumps everyone else's facts.

So naturally it comes into conflict with a lot of the mainstream atheists who are into things like reason, and science, and open exchange of ideas.

So the SJWs made the Atheism+ label to signify that "We are atheists, but only secondary to our wacky SJW agenda." It should be called Atheism-

Atheism minus reason. Atheism minus debate. Atheism minus science.

Not really opposed to running a market for drugs, but the guy's attempt at having people killed only failed because it turned out the victims and the would-be assassins were part of some elaborate scam to rip the guy off and it was never for real.

But he didn't know that. So he's a fucking psycho who needs to be put away for life.

Yes you can "fix" cheating, at least on game mechanics level, through strict client-server protocol which has to validate every action by the client, trusting it with NOTHING.

You have to trust it with movement, or the game will feel like shit. What you're talking about leads to shitty rubberbanding and laggy movement. There's a reason teleport/speed/automation hacks are never beaten in these sorts of games. It's far more effective to detect & ban than it is to cripple your game for anyone with a ping over 20ms just to get rid of some cheaters.

Anything that requires very high performance cannot be sync'd to the server in a production environment. In those cases there's no substitute for detect & ban that doesn't hamper honest users needlessly.

Are you saying they should do fuck all against cheaters and instead add a new hat? Can't say I agree with that.

The game is still in early beta. It's not really a time to be putting a lot of focus on cheaters. They need to actually finish the game. If they've got methods to detect them such that they can round up 25,000 accounts, that's progress at least.

So out of the 811 reports they got they only considered 161 of those worth submitting to Twitter. And of those 161 twitter only took action on 89.

Ah I didn't see that stat. Yeah, that confirms my suspicions that a lot of what's being called harassment really isn't.

Another thing to keep in mind, aside from the statistics, is that some of the more high profile Anti-GG folks on Twitter have very different definitions of harassment than the average person. So statistics not bearing out a "massive harassment campaign against women" makes sense. After all, it's likely the criteria this organization used was a little more strict in terms of what it called harassment.

For many of these people, any disagreement is harassment. They want the publicity of Twitter, but they don't want to hear any criticism of their ideas. They are trying to turn a public forum like Twitter into some kind of "safe space" instead of just sticking with Tumblr or some forum somewhere they can ban whoever they like.

They want to have their cake and eat it too, basically. The reach of Twitter, but the ability to shut out dissenting opinion like a forum.

Especially volatile Anti-GG folks, like Brianna Wu, even their supporters have to walk on thin ice. Even fellow SJWs don't dare disagree with some of these people lest they find themselves on the outs. Their semi-official motto is "listen and believe" which means that you're supposed to take what they say at face value, no matter how incorrect it is.

The simplest way to put it is that these people only care about their own personal feelings, not reality.

Does that blog acknowledge in any way the fact that the report only covered a three week period? It doesn't appear to be mentioned on the site or in the infographics.

I don't know if it's mentioned. But unless that 3 week period is somehow an extreme outlier where everyone in Gamergate decided to give not harassing people a try... it seems likely that any 3 week period would yield similar results.

Right, but what about the whole time? That an account didn't get reported for harassment in a 3 week period tells us effectively nothing about whether or not they have been involved in harassment at any time.

If we surmise that the bulk of harassers only ever send one or two offending tweets and then drop the subject or change their ways, then yes it seems likely that only a small portion of accounts would be active in any given week. But as I said, using the numbers observed during that 3 week period, even if a different group of harassers cycled in every 3 weeks, you'd still end up with not even 10% of the people on the blacklist being linked to any harassment since Gamergate started.
