So the escapist will outlive Neogaf. Who'd've thunk it?

Maybe we'll get a boost from NeoGaf refugees?

He most certainly did. And then got attacked for it.

OT: Only ever heard the site mentioned, and never in a good way. Gosh darn it, I guess it doesn't matter. ;)

This is hilarious.

As always, the virtue-signalers and SJWS are the ones with the skeletons in the closet - I'm glad that this is the end of them, and that they can't really cover it up any lore. It's an entire cabal of sex offenders in there, and I for one cannot wait for the inevitable arrests. I know that sex offenders have a *really* hard time in prison, is what I'm saying, and I hope that they've brought plenty of lube.

This probably the funniest news I've heard all week, and I can't wait to see how this epic fall-from-grace plays out.

I wonder if Tyler "Evilore" Malka's parents know that he's a sex offender...And I wonder what their faces are going to be like when they find out.

Hey, Tim Soret - the guy who's making The Last Night, who got hounded for his conservative views - has something to say about this, too:

https://twitter.com/timsoret/status/921934695574724610

In summary, this is a feel-good story with a happy ending for everyone...But not the 'happy ending' the male feminists and SJWs were hoping for! Hey!

We should started a sex offender "deadpool"

I'm placing a bet down that Moviebob will be arrested outside his house, nude, with a blowup princess peach doll covered in Nazi insignia.

I don't think Bob is physically capable of attempting to molest or sexually assault someone.

Horseshoe theory looking more and more solid.
Though it's still somewhat more acceptable if it's done in the name of goodness and progress and virtue and justice and all that feeling of righteousness.
Not all that shines is gold.

Yet, despite the ease with which one can fall into the trap of gloating, remain vigilant and abstain.
Don't sink to their level.

That makes no sense. When your enemy makes a mistake, you should make sure it will dog him for the rest of his life. He'll happily do the same to you, if the tables are turned.

I'm doing everything I can to spread the news far and wide, that Evilore is a sex offender. Hell, by the time I'm done, people who've never heard of NeoGAF will know three things:

1.) He exists.
2.) His real name (Tyler Malka) and what he looks like.
3.) That he's a sex offender.

I'm rubbing my hands with glee over this, and I encourage people to shout the news from the highest tower. Let them all know! Let everyone know the predator that walks among us, and let them know how full of bullshit he was! No-one falls harder than those who pretend to be righteous - All should know his shame.

Supposedly, it used to be the forum where devs could talk with fans. It got infamous later on for being an echo chamber and Sony only club and just recently a den of hypocrites.

By all means, point out the fact that it happened and with credible sources.
I've no problem with that at all.

Just the gloating..
An enemy could always become a potential friend and ally in the future.
Judge not lest ye be judged, I think it goes.
Would you jump off a bridge..etc.

Unless it's a matter of life and death for our way of life or our species..
Then it's up in the air.

Fucking hilarious coming from a guy who has spent the last how many years hiding in a closet to avoid rape charges?

Given that no one outside of Neogaf will cape for it, I'd say it was an echo chamber by that metric (not the "Doesn't tolerate my totally-not-bigoted bullshit ergo is Stalinist" standard) having burned a lot of bridges along the way. Honestly, Escapist seemed pretty oppressive to me relative to my first main forum (there wasn't a prohibition against insulting other users over there) so NeoGaf didn't strike me as sharply more left-wing or nanny-ish. Zontar would have been perma-banned there, sure, but he's always on the verge here, so...

To name a positive, it was a very active board. A "slow" topic there could garner a couple hundred posts by the end of a day while many threads got into the thousands.

@Zontar

Amazing how leftist information Robin Hood Julian Assange became a right-wing darling after essentially defecting to Russia and ducking rape charges all because his target changed. Odd.

The Lunatic:
Why is it there's always something weird and scummy about these people?

I'm not speaking for "Progressives" as a whole, and I don't mean to hate on the movement.

But, there seriously seems to be a trend of people claiming to be progressive and open to women's movements, and then just turning out to be creepy scumbags who were only interested in it to get with women, and sometimes commit harassment and other things like that.

I know there's always going to be some bad eggs, but, it's seemingly unfortunately common and it really does make everyone else look bad.

Loads of them, yeah. Some of them are flat out lying, of course, but others have decided they are genuinely good people, and that the sort of thing they (rightfully) condemn others for doesn't apply to them for some reason.

Then again, what makes someone "progressive"? If they are progressive on some issues, but decidedly not on others, for example.

Dazzle Novak:
having posted revenge porn of a user's girlfriend and having another mod (himself arrested for child pornography) print out and ejaculate on said pictures.

Now that's what I call community support! None of the mods here would ejaculate on any of the pictures that I sent them...

So when's the new GAFwarriors subforum going to open in a hopeless attempt to snipe some of that GAF traffic?

It had, at least at one time, a rather large number of open members of the development and journo community on it which is what really made it a draw as it tended to get a lot of insider scopes as it were. However, about the time of GG, it went full anti-gg mode and started a moderation policy that could be called draconian. This only got worse with the election (if you can even find threads where they admit their mods went out of control, but they are quick to say that was 'then').

Right before all this blew up, it had gone so far to the left it was rather insane over there the kind of threads that were allowed, while at the same time the kind of bannings that would take place.

Pseudonym:

3 reasons:

1. It was a very active gaming thread. You know how things awe as slow as molasses around here? Over there threads were created and updated constantly. All threads in the first two pages would be only 10 minutes behind the real time in updates. I used that site just for gaming news because it was usually one of the first to get information simply because of how many people were on that site, despite the heavy moderation.

2. The heavy moderation and the "echo chamber", while easily mocked on the outside, allowed for a like-minded group of people. Granted, the downsides of this was obvious but it did mean if you were similar in thoughts to Neogaf, you had a place to "belong". It did mean, however, that if you weren't part of their mindset, you'd be unceremoniously mocked/thrown out in short order.

3. SalesGAF. People obsessed over sales numbers, a select group of people within Neogaf (carried over from the original Gaming-Age Forum), have been meticulously keeping track of gaming sales around the world (though specifically NPD North Amreica, Media Create Japan, and a general European sales tracker). Though a good chunk had left through either banning or disgust a few months prior to yesterday's revelation, it still was one of the few places that catalogued sales with an impressive accuracy. Much better than the much maligned Gamechartz. Speaking of people leaving, (This right here is why I stayed on Neogaf simply because numbers are kind of my thing too)

As disgusting as you are, you need not worry about that. I know that most of Neogaf fled to discord. That migration has actually been happening for sometime due to SalesGaf moving there are even before the news broke out, preperation were well under way for the "Neogaf Discord" (creative, I know) to absorb the remainder of people who fled. They're already planning on building a new website to purge Neogaf from their names so I highly doubt the influx of "refugees" will be big. Goodness knows the Escapist migration wasn't as big as people said it was.

Besides, this website isn't exactly on solid ground either, lest we forget something similar happening to our site 5 years ago. What was that again? Something about gamers and a gate? People who utterly broke this website in half before leaving it to limp on its last remaining legs? Hmmm. With people remaining here screaming about how they and they alone were the champions of reason while decrying everyone else as rapists, "trannies", and white knights? Seems to me that these people are in the exact same shithole as they people they're decrying.

He became a right-wing darling after he released information that showed just how hypocritical the modern leftist parties are. Or are you forgetting about the fact that until that happened the left loved him too?

Also, I don't see how running away to Russia is a negative for you given the left loves Snowden and Leftist politicians love making illegal deals with Russia. I know he's the left's political boogeyman right now but as we've seen that's all just talk and at the end of the day the left and Russia are still butt buddies.

After all, Russia spent a fair about of coin promoting BLM.

That's what I meant by "his target changed". I thought he was a reckless jackass endangering American military personnel from jump, so I guess I simply don't sympathize with people merely because they're working against my political enemies.

You're making a lot of broad assumptions about my allegiances and stances simply because I'm "left" of you. I didn't appreciate or endorse Assange's scattershot "release it all without context" approach to whistle-blowing way back when and my stance on Snowden has always been that he ought to be arrested if he returns to the US, regardless of whether I agree with his actions or not, because civil disobedience (no matter how justified or vindicated-by-history) doesn't exempt you from the law.

But, nah, I'm some latte-swilling marxist engaged in perpetual "ours against yours".

Male feminist ally turns out to be big into sexual assault and/or a pedophile? Who could have guessed? I mean, other than people with pattern recognition.

The opposing side isn't validated simply because creeps know to infiltrate spaces filled with their targets. So yes, side-eye sanctimony when you see it and never assume holding "the right opinion" speaks to character, but let's not pretend the opposition was rooted in some keen insight into human nature rather than the same petty bullshit all internet beefs sprout from.

There's a lot of "I knew that guy I hated for reasons completely unrelated to his crimes was bad!" going on and it's a delusional form of "I told you so..." which is never a good look even when it's accurate.

All I'm saying is it's becoming a meme at this point. Like "conservative anti-gay politician is totally gay". It's never going to be 100%. It's just going to be true for enough prominent examples to make it funny.

Fixed that for you. The anti-fems don't have the best records out there either. It truly is a male problem.

I have yet to see compelling evidence that Evilore was a "feminist ally" anyway, other than referencing all of the memes that NeoGAF is an "SJW hivemind" (which, as I mentioned elsewhere last night, The Escapist is accused of being as well).

Dazzle Novak:

But it hasn't, he just releases information that's leaked to him, the fact that there was an insider at the DNC who leaked a shit ton of information to his group doesn't change that.

Nah, the joke here is that it's the men yelling the loudest about helping women.

Yeah, really the only big loss. Even without NPD leaks it was very informative, if dry due to lack of numbers. Though, it did somewhat devolve into just being a collection of info you could find yourself for the most part, like the public revenue top 10s, UK top 10s and whatnot. Still, it was easier to deal with than having to hunt down all the things yourself. Easier to recognise patterns, like UK performance being reflective of US(&other western territories') performance 97% of the time. Fun stuff.

Doesn't matter, it's "objective truth" at this point, and it's going to tar everybody who used to be at that site, despite the fact that, basically as soon as this info came out, the mods and users practically burned the place to the ground rather than defend it,

So much for being an echo chamber, not that it matters.

I think these kinds of people just do not see the contradiction in what they're doing. They're somehow able to seperate what they're actually doing from their stated (and possibly sincere) beliefs. Honestly, I'm just glad so many dudes are getting named and shamed for this recently. Just this year just off the top of my head we've got Weinstein, Bill O'Reilly, Anthony Weiner and Eric Bolling and they've all actually suffered from it, whereas this stuff used to just get swept under the rug or quietly accepted as "boys will be boys". It's just a shame people didn't start taking it so seriously until after Trump was elected.
