Does anyone have a clue what women and abuse he's discussing?

The women he's angry at because they won't give him the attention he thinks they deserve to get - but then, this doesn't narrow it down.

It's a disgrace that he hasn't been banned for his repeated misogyny, racism and trolling. He is a large part of why there's little point in commenting around here, when you have no standards for conversation then eventually only people with no standards will converse. Blue, why do you put up with what you've described as his serial misogyny?

It's important to note she used her Twitter account with over 2K followers as a podium to make career-destroying claims with no evidence. She also retweeted this in the past few hours indicating she doesn't care if what she says is true.

How, precisely, do you interpret that tweet?
Because you're not doing it correctly

She didn't author the post but chose to retweet it indicates she doesn't care what her comments about Chris do to his career. That's how I see it. But sure, I guess someone could interpret it another way. Do realize I used "indicating" in my OP, meaning I am NOT claiming that's what she intended. It is only a guess.

"Indicating" does not mean guess or an opinion, you did state that as a fact. I think the phrase "Indicating to me" would have been more appropriate for what you apparently mean.

However, my question remains. How do you make the jump from "she doesn't care what her comments about Chris do to his career" to "she doesn't care if what she says is true"? How does that tweet indicate to you that she doesn't care if what she says is true?

Only problem is that youre not antifascistic if you act like fascists yourself and even label people who arent your enemies as your enemies, just because you need enemies to exist.

That's literally the only reason why Trump has ever mentioned antifa - he needs enemies to exist and he wants you to think that people who speak out against him are real fascists. They're not, he is.

1) No one ever says "all white males are neo-nazis." If you're hearing this, you need to listen more carefully. It's not what's being said, but it's what so many hear. This is why it's frequently said that white males are fragile - because so many of us hear a criticism and put the word "all" in front of it. I can separate myself from the complaints, most of which have a lot of validity

Would you say the same for the statement "black males are criminals"? Hey, no one's saying all black males, so it's not racist, right?

I agree with most of what you said - wtf_man appears to have learned everything he knows about this subject from conservative/nationalist talking heads complaining/lying about it. However, there are limits. Obviously the second statement is much stronger and has a lot of history behind it, but this sort of phrasing can be indicative of the same flawed way of thinking. I don't have a lot of time for people who's complaints are consistently of this nature because I think it indicates the same us-and-them mentality that the worst of the opposite view have.

Having said that, and as I've said before, the white male victim complex that has become so common in the last few years is remarkably pathetic. I do hope no one feels that they're the victim of anything because I said that...

Wow some of you guys. He's accusing Twitter of "shadow-banning conservatives" to secretly hide their posts, systematically censoring opposing viewpoints, and totally "ignoring" lawful complaints of repeated abusive behavior.

Unless you're living under a rock, everyone knows the shenanigans of twitter, FB, & Google.

Yes, who hasn't heard of the assorted liars and fools who are so entitled that they cry about censorship when the preferential treatment they have been receiving isn't enough for them. And it never will be enough to make snowflakes like you happy, which is one reason why you shouldn't be indulged.

Why do you think that anyone wants you to apologise? The only person that accused you is yourself, when you saw "menstrual haters" and felt it applied to you in any way.

Dude.. you're not getting it. Nobody is apologizing, it's an expectation of an apology to the 'victims' because they feel they're getting shamed when there's really nothing to show for it.

There is no expectation of an apology.

Also, I didn't say there was an apology. Please read comments more carefully.

You read "menstrual haters" and interpreted it as "just being a guy". That you made that connection is pretty damning.

It is OK to ask questions (which you didn't actually do in this statement but whatever) but it is also OK for people to reply to comments. If you think this means it's not OK for you to make comments, you are a snowflake.

If you don't know that periods are taboo, maybe you should play this game.

That guy's full of shit. Never heard of GamerGate, in his job? Nah. He tried to get PR by being an edge-lord, it backfired, what he got is called consequences.

Didn't these games sell well? What happened tot his company?

It looks like they expanded too quickly, making as many games as they could as quickly as they could. They didn't do much with their engine or story telling techniques, so the formula got old.

Shame they screwed over their employees, both while the company lived and as it died.

If Twitter wants to make a healthier climate for debate they should get rid of the retweet button, it's basically a "manufacture outrage" button.

People would just do screenshots, but yes, I know "both sides" is often a bad argument, but both sides love to find some random lunatic (often a troll) with 3 followers saying something which then gets worked up and becomes a cause.

I'm pretty certain the entirety of GamerGate has lasted beyond the first week exclusively on intentional misunderstandings and overreacting to tweets by 14 year old girls with 0 followers.

People would do that and go back to copying the tweet and prefixing RT: but that would be an improvement. The ease at which people can (and do!) amplify unresearched/fabricated outrage is part of why it's so toxic. It would also get rid of the retweet 'score', which I think contributes to people getting off on being controversial.

Football Manager 2018? Weird. Maybe an error by GFK, or maybe it's on sale everywhere with the 2019 edition imminent. I would expect preorders for 2019 to be high, if preorders are even counted.

I think this is disc based sales, so it's effectively limited to casual gamers who aren't familiar with Steam/Origin/etc.

On the whole most people aren't. It's just that tiny minority of special little snowflakes who believe everyone should be able to sail through life without ever putting forth any effort, being put upon, or offended in even the slightest way. Oh boo hoo, life is tough, isn't it?

LOL, didn't you get banned from Steam forums for complaining about a game?

No. I was banned from a particular forum for complaining about their game - and I wasn't alone. Nor is this uncommon on Steam where some devs routinely band people and delete any criticism of their shitty products so they can continue to scam people. I was a paying customer who got ripped off and complained about it. That's an entirely different thing. Don't you dare lump me in with the snowflakes.

Just banned from one place the one time, is that right?

How often have you had comments here deleted because you angrily reacted? How many times have you been called out, only to melt away like a snowflake when the heat is on?
