Videochat January 2016 + Writer Auditions

Recommended Posts

Technically speaking, the GG label and movement came about as a way to distance the whole thing from the Zoe Quinn scandal.

Granted, it didn't work, but folks in the movement did recognize that it was a distraction.

It's sad to say, but drama just get's folks's attention.

Well clearly that recognition didn't get very far if the result was the feral, unorganized mob that Gamergate is today.

I'm not saying I started the fire. But I most certain poured gasoline on it.
