Gamergate is exactly what it appears to be: a relatively small and very loud group of video game enthusiasts who claim that their goal is to audit ethics in the gaming-industrial complex and who are instead defined by the campaigns of criminal harassment that some of them have carried out against several women.

Fixed that for you.

So what did the FBI do to the primary figures of GamerGate who orchestrated the criminal activity?
14 posts in 16 years yet somehow you've managed to quote me twice. I'd say I felt honored but the feeling is more akin to wanting to wirebrush my brain.

The biggest thing that bothered me with the gamergate saga is how universal ugly truths of humanity somehow became a specific problem with gamers. I know everyone has heard more than one person demean or harass a woman - call her a 'whore' for doing the same thing that guys proudly go out to do every weekend, and the like - who hasn't touched a videogame since they were ten. Intolerant and insensitive people exist; that some play games doesn't define an entire culture, but that was the takeaway.
Funny, the biggest thing that bothered -me- about gamergate was how many gamers vehemently denied that any such harassment was happening. That's -still- the big takeaway, in my book. You can find a dozen examples right here on bluesnews, if you take a few minutes and look back.

And frankly, fuck those guys, I refuse to share any sense of community with those assholes, any more than I would share a sense of community with monsters like Epstein and Trump (and for the same reasons).
Well said.

...I can't imagine being rude to them for no reason. And people usually pay it forward...

<shrugs> In my long experience, what it turned in to was a never ending stream of support requests for free. Oh, and the always popular "you killed my computer" because their hard drive dies...two weeks after I helped them install a printer (actual example). Moreover, it has never been "paid forward" in the 28 years I have been in my field. So...fuck 'em. I don't experience the irritation of a bunch of tech lampreys and I don't have to fuck with computers that people treat like toasters that sideline as low rent whores.

That's a win-win in my world.

I get asked all the time what the best brand lap/desk top is.
And my response is they're all the same, and how the fuck would I know. No one ever brings me a perfectly working machine, all I see is broke shit.

Several times I have been at clients just in time to administer last rights to their box.
They only call once everything their grandkids have tried has failed, or after a nearby lightning strike.

After reading the article i doubt paper ballots would be much better.

Besides the fact that 40% of Americans don't know how to correctly use this tool -- what's your point?
You got the percentages mixed up.
My point being is that cc debt in the US is insane and the majority of people who have said debt are stuck in a horrible revolving cycle, that's all.

Here's the whole thing.
"about 40 percent of Americans have enough income to pay off their balance – and do so in full every month. For them, a high credit card balance is not a problem.

For the remaining 60 percent, however, maintaining a high credit card balance can mean hundreds of dollars in interest payments a year and possibly a low credit score

Yes and no. I'll agree the interest rates on nearly all credit cards are bordering on criminal. However, JPM isn't doing anything other banks aren't. That said, for the last two decades I've spent 10s of thousands of dollars on credit cards every single year -- and I have paid exactly zero dollars in interest.

Credit cards like so many things are tools -- used correctly they are handy and helpful, used incorrectly they can easily cause great harm.
Americans owe a record $1.04 trillion in credit card debt – up from less than $854 billion five years ago.
On average, Americans owe $6,354 on bank-issued credit cards.
  • about 40 percent of Americans have enough income to pay off their balance

  • For the remaining 60 percent ...

    What does it do for a highly skilled player.

    Makes victory even more satisfying when they still win despite the random chance element this adds?

    The whole kerfuffle around this reminds me of the arguments against having the BFG in Quake 2 Multiplayer. It’s silly.

    I think Epic is doing the right thing here.
    Ah, that makes sense.

    They have an equivalent though of course, people can figure it out.

    In Michigan we have a SoS, "Secretary of State" but you could call it a DMV and we'd know exactly what you were talking about.

    edit: Neat, here are all the equivalent regional names:

    In California it is goes by the name "Where Souls Go To Die", that is if you have an appointment of course.

    By design, Gamergate is nearly impossible to define. It refers, variously, to a set of incomprehensible Benghazi-type conspiracy theories about game developers and journalists; to a fairly broad group of gamers concerned with corruption in gaming journalism; to a somewhat narrower group of gamers who believe women should be punished for having sex; and, finally, to a small group of gamers conducting organized campaigns of stalking and harassment against women.
