Before the Mods crucify me, just going to bring up an interesting (and potentially important) event.
Less about harassment, ****lords, and GG shenanigans, more from the Ethics in Games Journalism (har har).
So the SPJ: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_of_Professional_Journalists
It's holding a bit of an interesting talk on the wake, the effects, and the overall results that Gamergate created for the Journalism world. I consider this of important note because a number of professional outsiders took note of the spat, and will have dedicated live-stream discussing it on August. Overall, GamerGate was a result of serious misreading on the part of Games Journalists and the infamous "Gamers are Dead" articles several months back. Despite attempts on the parts of the SPJ and other GamerGate support, most Anti-GamerGate critics simply turned down or refused to talk. Not to hide my own biases, but given Anti-GamerGate's crazy train from Randi Harper and Alexander Leigh attacking Anne Rice, or the fact that our favorite Anita isn't stupid enough to engage in a more meritorious debate that requires relying off of old and biased techniques, we're having an outside party give this "mess" a proper look.
AGG will most likely accuse this of being a pro-GamerGate event, but given their lack of participation or desire to comment... not going to lie it will be GamerGate's chance to talk ethics.
To say I'm "pro" GamerGate is simply not enough, it's good enough to say that I'm pro-GamerGate because Anti-GamerGate has literally hung itself and made a bridge of corpses - and the not too surprising lack of their voice from this event, is telling of the sad state of their predicament. AGG is so thoroughly out of touch with reality, I can safely say that at the end of the day, they've done more damage to swing things in favor of GamerGate than any harassment campaign could succeed.
In this context though, I think it's high time the journalists who had a hand in creating the mess get a proper retrospective. They are not above scrutiny, and many of the GamerGaters have been more than will to place themselves under scrutiny.
