No they don't. The person wielding the broad-brush is the asshole not the person being painted with it.

I think you are painting the "person" wielding a broad brush, with a broad brush. Which by your own definition, would make you an asshole.

But I don't agree with you about broad brushes always being wrong.

If the brush fits ... it fits.

As for your personal turn towards Anita/Zoe and their ilk, go ahead. Just be ready for gaming to be politically correct pablum.

Yes, ALL must quake in FEAR at the POWER a female academic and indie developer hold over our ENTIRE industry!

You may laugh at this idea ... but you won't be laughing for long! Get ready to say goodbye to Call of Duty as we know it! Soon all guns will be banned from all games due to their obvious phallic symbolism! They will be replaced by TAMPONS the second Herr Anita gives the order! Her power over us all is UNLIMITED!

On that day, I want you all to remember ... Julio TRIED to warn us. He tried to get us to FIGHT BACK!

But we didn't listen.

Congratulations, you've finally turned someone who actually had some sympathy and agreement with the positive arguments of GG against it completely.

I'm not claiming a victory over Joystiq. What I am claiming that their anti-GG/pro SJW stance didn't lead to financial success. If anyone is responsible, it's the anti-GG side who didn't support Joystiq enough. Because gamers aren't SJWs for the most part.

As for your personal turn towards Anita/Zoe and their ilk, go ahead. Just be ready for gaming to be politically correct pablum.

First, this didn't have anything to do with "ethical" or not. AOL simply made a money decision to shutter their lifestyle blogs. Their auto and apple blogs were also affected.

Second, Joystiq published one article, which was an editorial piece (read - someones opinion) on the matter, and the sum up of that article was "Most the shit I see from GG is harassment and while we get requests to stay non-political we can't discuss just gaming, ethics while crap like that is going on." Which is actually a reasonable commentary. And despite saying that, they pretty much did stay out of the debate.

Truthfully, as someone who doesn't like Anita's methods in her video (though I agree with her on some points), and didn't care for Zoe and the stuff that happened there, most of what I see coming out of GG IS harassment and asshole behavior. Which is why I tend to avoid it or ignore their posts as much as I do agree with the ethics arguments. And basically saying its good they lost their jobs for one editorial, an opinion piece, and claiming some sort of victory as if it's your doing, just seems to reinforce that point. All the people who just stuck to writing gaming articles at joystiq, massively and wowinsider are out of jobs, and you're acting the douche.

Congratulations, you've finally turned someone who actually had some sympathy and agreement with the positive arguments of GG against it completely. THIS is exactly why you can't actually convince anyone of the sincerity of any valid points you have.

They were in the Gamergate boycott list. Google it and see.

They did not do a Gamers are Dead, they were not laid off for being a games site, GamerGate did not impact them, and the cheers people are throwing over their death just points to how little many GamerGaters seem to be aware of anything at all.

People angry for the sake of being angry without knowing at what, exactly.

Guess they can all start up Patreon accounts and create videos to attack gamers. Shot over the bow to all those other anti-GG sites who try to make a living off gamers.

All those people out of work and here you are just crowing about it.

Do you ever wonder why so many people think you Gators are assholes?

This is one of the reasons why.

Also, "shot across the bow" my ass--Gators had NOTHING to do with these sites shutting down, unless you're secretly running AOL.

What are you going to take credit for next.

The moon landing?
