>>664 My pic in this post was in his and was supposed to prove his point. Haha, did I say point? I meant his whinging generalizations.
"it is difficult to summarize the cumulative impact of hundreds of messages implying you are liar or obnoxiously asking for “proof” of well-proven facts"
It's difficult to prove, but it is well-proven so I don't need to provide proof. In other words: circular reasoning works because circular reasoning works because . . . Wheee! I love it.
He writes in a way that I think is meant to convince you of his English Mastery and keen insight, but this guy is full of shit start to finish. There none of "This leads to that, and this is because of that". He just makes statements and doesn't back them up ("This is not a new phenomenon") and bases everything on an assumption that he was duped into having by an actually provably orchestrated conspiratorial lie (unlike him, I have evidence).
GG was actually started to point out how shitty the "games journalism" business is and how they are too close to the gamemakers they cover (often too physically close, if you catch my meaning). Not once does he mention the gamemakers being literally in bed with people who make them money. Not once does he even mention journalism itself. No, in his mind, GG is and always has been solely about eeeeevil gaming boys wanting to keep out the icky girls. He even says that a 4chan drawing is supposed to be of their ideal woman because she can't talk and he then claims it as proof that he's right.
Not only does he not actually explain why what he says is true (just that it is), but he provides no sources for his assumptions. He just rambles about it. No sources, no interviews, no videos, no anything. Well, actually, here is his evidence: "look at GamerGate as a text[a whole], look at their message boards, their IRC channels, their blog posts, YouTube videos, claims, priorities, and target selection" Seriously, that's it. No mention of how to find this info or whom its from or links or anything, actually. The entire thing is just an overlong rant of one sentence: guys think girls and misc are invading their hobby.
THIS IS THE BEST PART! :D The only reason SJW is even mentioned in relation to GG at all is because there was an intentional and directed effort by those same journalists it accused. They sough to deflect it by condemning GG as being against women and whatever else (see links in >>629 and/or google "gamer is dead"). Unfortunately, it worked. All those people that say GG is about women were duped into deflecting the journalists' accusations for them, but they're too self-righteous to realize that they are just patsies. Gratz, you're the new sturmtruppen, Dan. Bet you feel clever now, eh?
Oh, and the minority of people claiming to be part of GG that is actually making the threats and such? Well the other people, the ones that say "That's not what we're about, we don't like those harassers" are just enabling them according to ol' Dan here. How dare they say that the harassment is bad!
This guy is a fool that thinks he's smart. I say that he is not clever and nowhere near as insightful as he believes. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you white-knighting at its purest.
