What they don't acknowledge is the obvious - that the lack of disclosure of these points was calculated and deliberate because they had an agenda. A simple oversight is forgivable; intentionally neglecting to point out very important facts that could serve to weaken your agenda is just slimy.
I really just want all of them to admit they're just liberal politically correct agenda pushers trying to control the community narrative by any means possible.
Places like them, Kotaku and Polygon are why I don't even bother reading game sites anymore. Basically it's Blues, Evil Avatar and maybe Shacknews. The rest are just sh*t rags.
I at least have to give props to Alexander Macris for following through. Really though, Macris pulled through in a HUGE way. He was the one who made Tito make the changes and he's been personally interacting with all the disgruntled gamers in the GamerGate thread.
Escapist isn't perfect but Macris did the one thing none of the other major sites did, and that's listen to the audience. So he has my respect for that.
Will they maintain it? I don't know. We'll see. Some step is better than no step. Like, what is RPS doing? And has Gamasutra made any plans to retract some of the slanderous things they've been printing lately or is that all in the name of the editorial?
