I'd rather be wrong about a Kotaku article than give them any sort of traffic though.
I really wish Blue would stop linking to those clickbait idiots that belong to gawker. Nothing they say should ever be given any amount of credit or thought towards.
There are actually good articles on Gawker, especially IO9, but also Kotaku sometimes too. I like that Blue often picks some of the best ones to highlight here.

I've yet to read anything where it hasn't devolved into a class black and white, males are evil, gamers are evil, they're sexist because of xyz reasons, or apply various labels like terrorists and so on.
You're kinda proving beremot's point about agendas here. You don't engage with any arguments, you just descend into hysteria.
The anti side lives, breathes and eats identity politics while using unverifiable yellow press style journalism to paint their opposition as such. I'm sure that it was a huge blow for their morale though, when Gawker of all sites came out under oath stating that GG is actually about proving the ethical lapses in the industry. Damn that narrative.
Oh let's toss this in because I just ran across it and chuckled, since it the narrative.
aGG narrative timeline:
- September to October 2014: Gamergate is nothing, just 200 dudes being loud, they're insignificant!
- December 2014 to january 2015: Gamergate is a child porn ring and ISIS terrorists, theyve literally killed people!
- March 2015: Gamergate has ruined gaming!
You might be going derp wat?! On the last one, but you've probably missed the gaming press and their latest round of attacks. We're now so big and powerful we're ruining gaming.
No, he claims others are hyperbolic then goes all hyperbolic.
It, sadly, is kind of common in these talks. It's really, really hard for people to not go hyperbolic. On this site. Both sides. I don't think I do, but people say I do. I don't know if you do but I don't think so. Beremot often does.

I think Blue is usually pretty even-handed with this stuff but if we're going to keep getting links to AngryGamerDude's stuff, how about links to a blogger who is equally anti-GG to even the playing field a little bit?
Can you find one that doesn't jump right into cis-white-male-gamers are sexist, racist, homophobes with internalized muhsoggyknees that are worse than ISIS, terrorists, and are the leaders of the KKK. Who are death incarnate and dox everyone in sight type of unverifiable bullshit that they continue to spew?

(ISIS loves you, they thank you for doing nothing and they know things will only get better for them. They also appreciate Liberals views of Israel, nuke talks with Iran, and less Gitmo among other things)

Blue has you guys in a bottle. All he's been doing the last few months is making a headline like "Republicans blah blah blah" and you all froth to rabidly comment even if you have absolutely no idea what it's about (like that 10 page Net neutrality legislation you all signed on for and have no idea what's in it).
Baah Baah, have you any wool?
We live in an age of hyperpartisanship. And most of it has been caused by Lee Atwater, Roger Ailes & Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Frank Luntz, etc. etc. The Dems simply don't have anything close to the amount of infrastructure and money that the Repubs do
Cmon JD, the president bashing was never worse than during Bush, and dems just kept going and going pushing the hate and people apart because that's what they do:
Everything is still Bush's fault
Everyone is a racist
Everyone is a bigot
Everyone is an islamophobe
War against women
War against homosexuals
War against war
War against science
You eat too unhealthy
You use too much energy
Take their guns
Let illegals in
Capitalism is evil
I could go on and on and its ALL liberal ALL DAMN DAY every damn day and it's all complete and utter bullshit 99% of the time.
Liberals and Democrats own the root of hyperpartisanship, no escaping it and you know it. Everyone sees it -- and any who say they don't either are willfully blind, or pay no attention to that which they say they do.

People won't go with this because the Republicans are involved. Still, anybody that works for an ISP clearly understands how bad Net Neutrality is.

I mean, if Hilary's email account is creating such a stir, then a private email network run by the White House itself would surely have created an enormous scandal, and there's no way such a scandal could have slipped from our collective memory ... right?
As if this wasn't on the long, long list of things people perpetually shat their pants over with Bush - rightly, by the by.
Next we'll hear about how /obviously/ there is nothing wrong with the Patriot act, because if there was, party X certainly wouldn't have been silent while party Y was complaining, right?

Of course being against SJWs doesn't make you a man ... you big silly!
It makes you a HE-MAN!....giant wall of meaningless text follows as usual
I think you're off your meds if you think that I'm looking to ensure SJW's are gone from the earth.
I don't care if there are a bunch of deluded SJWs running around - what I don't want is them deciding the future of gaming (primarily via collusion in the gaming media). Some people like getting told what to think, others think for themselves.
Cults are perfectly fine until they start infringing on the rights of others.
