Something funny though, they canned her ass from Treehouse. But they haven't canned the asses from Treehouse that can't do their job of providing a proper localization. Well there's always hope in that...

And this should have been the real news, localization should never remove content just because some flesh bag at the localization team decides that

Honestly, I think that was what really got their attention. More then even the Wayne Foundation going after her and nintendo. Like I mentioned before, the rumor floating around is that even those pictures weren't the moonlighting gig, it was her working for Sega. It'll be interesting to see if that's actually the case though.

That's not a rumor. That's what the article is about. Both her and Nintendo confirmed that that was the official reason for termination.
The article says she was fired for moonlighting. Not who she was moonlighting for.

There's a rumor floating around that her cause for termination was moonlighting at Sega(she was definitely moonlighting though).

There's a rumor floating around that her cause for termination was moonlighting at Sega(she was definitely moonlighting though). That whole fist fight between console makers in the 90's never went away. But something to keep in mind, she was PR. She posted that on an account that is her own and was also used for official nintendo PR.

But I find all of this kind of funny. Especially the people in this thread blaming GG, and of course these are the same people who claim GG is dead. So to borrow something we're going to call this "Schrodinger's Gamergate." A movement both alive and dead, that has power, but has no power to do anything.

Neither the SJW nor the GG's people can help themselves and not attempt to get people they do not like fired. That's the thing you do. Two sides of the same ugly coin. Yes I know that large diverse groups cannot be policed. I applaud the folks so said things like "we should not be trying to get her fired, that's what the other side does."

Uh-huh. Funny that GG didn't have anything to do with it, and it was the wayne foundation(aka the normies) that took up the charge on it. Just remember what sloppy journalism looks like.

Curses, you've foiled my attempt to make sarcastic comments about clueless Microsoft executives. I would be upset, but I'm sure there will be many more opportunities in the future.

I don't get why so many people spent a month telling all who would listen that she was a pedophile that shouldn't be at Nintendo are now running back and saying they had nothing to do with her firing and people need to stop claiming they did.

It was literally a month(s) long campaign to make sure everyone around her knew she was a pedophile who was responsible for products consumed by children.

And, if that's true, then no, she shouldn't have had a job at Nintendo, as she was a PR disaster waiting to happen. And it did happen.

Funny thing is, all those Gamergaters probably spend a great deal of time sitting at home jerking off to little anime girls.

Although I can see why a pedo would want to work at Nintendo, I can't see why they would want to employ any. Unless they have many pedos working there.

I keep hearing people say that but what exactly happened during those months? Tweets?

(Googling)

Interesting, I google "online hate campaign alison rapp" and I get a ton of recent stories about her being fired because of this campaign but nothing from when it's actually happening.

On Page 3 I found this

Blog about Alison Rapp hate campaign

(Technically I found a reddit thread that was discussing this article)

It breaks down what exactly this hate campaign appeared to be in Feb.

I think my favorite part is where she's editing quotes to make them look worse and the blogger shows her version and reality.

Do you think "online hate campaign" is the best thing to search?

Here's where people first noticed her.

And here's a link to dozens of posts about her, most calling her a pedo.


Which isn't to say she's at all blameless, or a good person, or should have stayed at Nintendo. Just that people were obsessed with her. Thousands of posts about her in those links. Thousands. Here's some idiot on Twitter. Here's another Not that idiots on Twitter saying anything are hard to find, but there's two calling for her to be fired.

She did it to help pay off her school loans, which is definitely a sad scenario. Large #'s of post-graduates are in lots-o-debt in the U.S.

Can't believe I have tell you of all people that, but she was not ever a pedophile for saying the age of consent in the US should be lowered considering how absurd the law situation is...

Reason she was fired is that she worked 2nd job for Sega, Nintendos worst corporate enemy.

Ps.: And yes, her other tweet was about LEGAL bullshit, IE. things a burglar stole can not and should not ever be used against you. Imagine what kind of fucked law situation this creates, how would you prove that something a burglar claims he stole from you ISN'T YOURS. In most legal systems proof obtained like that is completely worthless before court.

But thinking was never a strong suit of SJW's and GG and neither of the media involved here.

Only thing she did wrong was unprofessional behavior (ie not splitting private and corporate twitter) not sure whether her 2nd job was even illegal as such. Nintendo PR people are not full time employed at Nintendo
