Ideology pushing on a topic that hasn't been relevant for a while now? There's another website to cross off my list of semi-reputable sources... Bye-bye, MCVUK.

Borderlands Online. Been saying we need something like that for years and it's in China only...

Course I'm assuming it will have a robust random loot system in an FPS world that is done in an engaging way. Guess we'll see... eventually.

...Just read it will be a mobile game too... which means it will likely suck unless the mobile version is different.

Zoe Quinn's fifteen minutes of fame are up, trying to milk it for all it's worth as a professional 'victim'. It's tough to make a go of it otherwise off those Patreon donations.

"The service is “staffed by a number of online abuse survivors whose identities remain anonymous to anyone outside the network”.

Are you fucking kidding me? Survivors? These motherfuckers have the gall to call themselves survivors after someone called them names online? This PC liberalism bullshit has got to stop. This stupidity is just out of hand.

'Survivor' is just a word to give a positive spin, rather than 'victim'. It's about giving some power back to the abused person, not something to get so upset about.

I know what the fuck it is, and yes it is something to get angry about. Vets coming home from a war are survivors. People beating cancer are survivors. Getting trolled or called names online doesn't make you a fucking survivor, not even a victim.

Christ, by that rationale we're all survivors/victims! Oh deary me! Someone cut me off in traffic today, gave me the finger, and called me a bad name! Oh how I wish there was a support group for survivors like myself!

Are you fucking kidding me!?!?!?!?!? Rolleyes

I don't know what's more nauseating, that Quinn is still milking her 15 minutes of undeserved fame in this manner, or the way the author of the article linked wears his bias on his sleeve when he defines GamerGate as an "online hate group" in his first sentence.

Shame on Quinn for starting it, shame on Ben Parfitt for writing about it, shame on whoever submitted this article for submitting it, and I really thought better of this site than to greenlight garbage like this for publishing.

I'm not mad, BluesNews, I'm just disappointed in you.

'abused person' is almost as funny as 'survivor' in this context. What a load of bullshit.

Where is the support group for feminism victims survivors?

Silly me for calling them victims, apparently we are all survivors, of life! Surviving life is some hardcore stuff right there. Only the best can do it.

Yeah! How did anybody ever get the idea that GamerGate was some kind of a hate group?

I just can't figure it out ...

Also, how dare these women band together to try to support one another in a struggle against their perceived enemies!

Only GamerGaters can do that.

Oh hell yeah! Getting cut off in traffic is exactly the same as getting repeatedly stalked on line, death and rape threats, etc. No difference at all!

What a fucking echo chamber it is in here.

Of course my guess is, that you won't actually read them, because A: You don't really WANT to know, and B: You just don't give a shit.

But one can always hope.

Ohhh the horror! Oh the humanity! Oh this is worse than Auschwitz! Grow a pair and learn to differentiate between interacting with anonymous people online and people who you meet in the course of your real life.

Oh no I was harassed by some anonymous 14 year old in Brazil! I better flee my home and make a big ol' scene on the Internet.

If you can't see that these are disturbed people trying to cash in on the recently popularized status of "victim", then you're just another sucker. Zoe Quinn and her type are all over the Internet these days. They are professional victims, known only for being victims, and who spend all their time trying to make sure everyone sees them as such. They make zero efforts to stop the harassment or move past it. They immerse themselves in it, and go out of their way to attract more of it. Why would anyone do that? Well, most people wouldn't because they are sane.

But these are mentally ill people who crave acceptance and popularity. They know by poking some anonymous mass of people with a stick over and over again, they will always be guaranteed some level of harassment or other inappropriate response. That harassment, in turn, leads to emotional and financial support that they cannot get on their own.

This is not new. We all knew this type of person in high school. Literally everything was the end of the world for them, and for a while, their gaggle of friends would provide support. Of course, most of us got tired of needy whackjobs, so it only lasted so long. On the Internet however, there's an endless stream of people seeking to make themselves feel better by sticking up for someone they perceive as a victim.

I'm sorry if I'm not losing some sleep over some rich white trust fund baby getting some mean words thrown at them online when real suffering is happening to real people out there.

Let's just call it what it is: A bunch of stuck-up white bitches crying over nothing because they lack perspective.
Do you have a single fact to back that up?

Clearly beremots now is going to have PTSD and need such a service as Zoe Quinn is going to provide. When I think of services in context with Zoe Quinn, it's not counseling that comes to mind...

So I've finally taken some time to read up on what has happened in the last few months.
From what I see there are quite a few people who align themselves with gamergate that deliberately hunt down anyone who dares to say anything against their behaviour or their motives by trying to get any information (including addresses and addresses of friends, relatives etc.) they can and then publish them on the internet.
If some posts/reactions can be trusted some take even a weird kind of pleasure in doing harm to people with differing ideals, even going as far as calling the police by reporting fake crimes or whatever. This is already sociopathic behaviour. However, since it's coming from places like 4chan it's actually not that surprising.

What I don't yet understand is why so many of you take offence at what's being done to combat that kind of behaviour. Judging from the wording some of you even take that as a personal affront.

Harassment in any kind of form takes its toll on one's mind, be it anonymous or not.

I get the feeling that the whole "ethics in journalism" thing is just a front and gamergate is not about that but about some people getting off to harassing others on the internet. Which, actually, is also not that surprising.
Now we donce.

Sounds like you, like most media took bias and only looked at one side of the story.
More then enough of the people that suppport gamergame have also been harrassed, Doxxed, and send stuff in the mail like needles and dead animals.
instead of just getting all your information from biased media. do more reading.
