"Recently, as part of the anti-women #GamerGate campaign[2], a set of awful humans convinced Intel to terminate an advertising campaign because the site hosting the campaign had dared to suggest that the sexism present throughout the gaming industry might be a problem. Despite being awful humans, it is absolutely their right to request that a company choose to spend its money in a different way."

And this is a typical mouthpiece of SJWs. Stay classy.

Calling a removal of an ad censorship. Welp, I've seen it all now.

A friendly reminder of what censorship is according to wikipedia:

"Censorship is the suppression of speech, public communication or other information which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, politically incorrect or inconvenient as determined by governments, media outlets, authorities or other such entities."

I see the article hasn't been pulled. I see nobody has been silenced, no articles pulled, no speech stiffled. In fact, I don't think they teach removing adverts as censorship in any law school in the known universe.

I think Beamer means the censorship Zoe Quinn done by DMCAing Mundane Matt's video at the start of Gamergate. Or reddit banning pro-Gamergate discussions. Or 4chan. Or even Gamasutra and RPS and Polygon banning comments about gamergate which wouldn't be cesorship since they're privately owned sites but it sure as hell it fits the description better than Beamer's diseased use of the word.

Stop being intellectual dishonest Beamer.

Some people here will preach about misogyny and that gamergate isn't working and isn't about ethics.

Intel apparently doesn't agree with these white male oppressed misologists and damn good for Intel.

I don't know, the more gameplay I watch the more I think it's just a glorified Civ 5 mod rather than a successor to Alpha Centauri. Hope I'm mistaken though.

Amazing that that Uri Geller scammer is still around. Let's all remember the time he was thoroughly destroyed by James Randi.

#GamerGate: Game Journo Pro Member Explains How To Pull Advertiser Support

"The members of #GamerGate have been exercising measures to go after the sponsors and advertisers for sites like Kotaku, Polygon and Gamasutra. E-mailing the advertisers and politely asking them to drop support for those sites has been a prime goal of the movement. Interestingly enough, anti-#GamerGate groups have been keeping an eye on this movement and even mocked the attempts to contact advertisers."

#GamerGate An Issue With Two Sides

"Nearly a month after it began, GamerGate is a fire that refuses to go out.

The hashtag campaign has opened up a chasm between the gaming press and their audience. Currently standing at close to a million tweets (over twice that of #Destiny), #GamerGate shows no signs of stopping. A related tag, #NotYourShield, has cleared 120,000. But what lies behind it? Why did it come about? And why are people so angry?"

Yeah, I hope it'll be cool. I could do with an actually good Sim City game.

Though it's made by the Cities in Motion devs, and those games are rather meh. It can't be worse than SimCity though and I'm hoping this becomes a hell of a city builder.

Emma Watson does a speech that does real feminists proud. Absolutely agree with her on all points.

Ok, I'll bite this, too tempting not too.

1) You never defined "intellectual dishonest" and said how it relates to me. You're like a dog with a bone with that term, which I assume you picked up on Twitter, but you've never once actually applied it. You just put it out there. Never with a "because..."

Definition of intellectual dishonest: you. Simple.

Beamer wrote on Sep 22, 2014, 20:40:
2) Misolgist, nice, you learned a new word. You still fail to actually cite anything, though, so it's hard to tell why you use it

Been citing tons of stuff, it's you who never acts on it. Also, learning new words is good, it culturally enriches you, you should try it.

Beamer wrote on Sep 22, 2014, 20:40:
3) You do not get to say what a "real" feminist is, but look at the link to the Rational Wiki, one of the premier sources of atheist discussion, and see why Thunderf00t is considered a giant raging asshole. I sourced it for you, and, conveniently, it also has sources rather than simply red Paint lines. I'll also give you a quote:
The videos are heavy on strawmen; they misrepresent feminists' arguments to an extent that is either grossly naive or wilfully disingenuous, and propagate stereotypes of feminists as frigid, joyless "professional victims". To underline this point, the second video contrasts footage of Watson and others talking seriously about their concerns, with a montage of party photos showing Mason and his pals larking around in silly costumes, drinking and hugging. Victory!

You accuse me of "intellectual dishonesty" and "misology" yet you say that Thunderf00t is a feminist.

And you don't get to generalize and define what a real feminist is either. Apparently you have no idea about feminism, typical of a SJW, since there are three waves of feminism, the third-wave being the ones that use the misogynist word so heavily it lost all its meaning at this point. Also, if you had done some research, instead of relying on some site, something you keep on preaching that others do to their detriment, you would find out that wiki is heavily biased to "feminists", hence their attack on Thunderf00t. Of course, research and facts is something you abhor.

So it's ok to generalize when it favors SJWs, gotcha!

Beamer wrote on Sep 22, 2014, 20:40:
Though I did forget you said you wouldn't respond to me anymore, which was convenient, as it let you be Cutter and say something flagrantly incorrect (that you can't be fired for things you do outside of work) and then never respond when corrected.

So, I made a mistake. When I worked at S&P the laws at the US were more lax. Though I love how you generalize, something you seem so much to be against though not when it's about defending SJWs, and seem to think I know nothing based on a single mistake.

And this is truly the last time I reply to you. Misologists deserve no reply and I'm getting tired of being baited by you, my fault I know, but won't happen again. Too tired of your circular logic, strawmen, misology, intellectual dishonesty. You offer nothing new but the same tired argument which has been debunked time and time again. It's getting tiresome showing you facts and destroying your arguments.

Too evasive, Tim, and not addressing the real concerns. DF is probably going to take a bigger rep hit with this than they did with Broken Age.

Since some misologist and intellectual dishonest SJW likes to generalize and not do any research, I have to correct him even though I told him I would not reply to him anymore.

I don't know AmazingAtheist, but Thunderf00t supports feminism, real feminism, first and second-wave feminist, not the third-wave SJW professional victimhood "feminism", this much is obvious if this misologist had actually read the article he linked and noticed all the people Thuderf00t criticized are third-wave "feminists".

I advise this SJW to actually do research, stop being intellectual dishonest, stop being a misologist and not cherry pick just to suit his own agenda.

No! Not censorship!

Blues is actually on the GG blacklist posted in that Eurogamer thread last I checked. Internet mobs are so hilarious.

Wrong. Eurogamer is in the list, Blues News isn't.

Whitelist of gamergate.

Thunderf00t's twitter account suspended, seemingly by Anita herself. Apparently Twitter will not reinstate the account unless Thunder promises not to "harrass" Anita any further.

And people still say AS isn't for censorship. How wonderful. Can't wait for the usual spin the SJWs will put on this.

Seems gamergate is hurting some sites. Eurogamer has now announced a deal with Adblock to have Acceptable Ads on, and RPS is now metaphorically begging for money using exclusive content.

Their graphs on Alexa shows the continuing sharp declines, especially RPS and Gamasutra. Guess attacking your own demographics does have severe consequences after all.
