Open Letter to the Gaming Community

An Open letter to the gaming community on Medium addresses the current hot topic of gaming criticism and developer harassment, currently supported by almost 2000 game developer and player "signatures" collected via Twitter. Here's the body of the letter:
We believe that everyone, no matter what gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion has the right to play games, criticize games and make games without getting harassed or threatened. It is the diversity of our community that allows games to flourish.

If you see threats of violence or harm in comments on Steam, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook or reddit, please take a minute to report them on the respective sites.

If you see hateful, harassing speech, take a public stand against it and make the gaming community a more enjoyable space to be in.

Thank you

There's a better petition that Boogie2988 setup that states not only what the original one does but asks the "enthusiast" press to stop tarring all gamers with the same brush and stating that we're all the same based on what a vast minority of asshats do. Given the responses he got from supposed "professional journalists" to just stating that maybe there are some demonstratable conflicts of interest in the industry, I'd say his point is a valid one.
