Honestly, it only ever comes up here, on youtube sometimes, and in random articles I read related to internet safety or whatever.

It's in those places 'cause people have a hard time letting go...and you couple that with it being brought up from time to time, then the ball of sadness just keeps rolling.

Hell. GG ended in like 2014-2015. I dunno how some folks are still so into it.

You may be correct about the outrage, the somewhat contained phenomenon that was dubbed "GG". It was only the response of one community to a blatantly obvious attack, only one metastatic growth that caused an itch which, in turn, required some scratching.

The underlying causes are still up and running, which is why the struggle is still ongoing.

Do you, or others, ever wonder why this once bustling forum turned into a ghost town? Do you ever wonder why discussion and discourse got replaced by deafening silence? Do you even think one side already "won"?

Our society is being weakened by selective, oftentimes fictional empowerment and alien ideologies that aim at little more than causing division. We cannot possibly move on before this clash of ideologies is resolved one way or another. See you on the other side.

Fantastic post! You know people here were still defending Anita after she lashed out at Boogie in an obvious show of uncertainty about her message that harassment online only affects women. How can people continue to back the 'only women in gaming are important' side?

Yes, she called him out; and Boogie solved it right there like a civilized man. You should heed what Boogie said and let it go.

Except the gamers who just wanted identity politics left out of their games. Many gamers had already given up on game journalism before this even started but when the gaming press came out against gamers then even more people who didn't ask for this shit were pulled into the fold.

The damage to this forum and many others is undeniable. You still have some people at NeoGaf talking about GamerGate daily. These are the people they hate, they call them racists, misogynists, GamerGaters and Nazi's. These are all the same group of people to them and they have silenced all opposing voices by banning or just by people staying quiet to avoid being dog piled. It was a long time coming though, people were already untrusting of game journalists.

She called Boogie out? What did Boogie do wrong to make it necessary for her to call him out?

Boogie didn't solve it right there and let it go, he made her actions public by making a video about it and rightfully so. When the perpetual victim becomes the victimizer, it's newsworthy.

When "cuckold" returns to referring to only a specific fetish community, and "beta" mainly refers to an obsolete brand of video player, then we can start drawing up the peace accord.

Till then, the bayonets remain fixed.

Hate to break it to you, but posting isn't war, my friend.

Sure, and next you are going to tell me that flame wars aren't real, I got my Purple Heart in the Bioware forum war of 2012, do not deride my honorable service in the trenches good sir. I can still hear the sounds of the incoming shit posts whenever I close my eyes.

Seriously though, like calling it a flame war, im pretty war comparisons for forum fights are pretty common, While I can't speak for smith, it's pretty standard internet analogy hyperbole, then again we've got weeping angels in here describing identity politics as a religion and making dire declarations, so maybe toning down the hyperbole couldn't hurt.

My point is less about the specific rhetoric being used, and more about treating conversations on the internet as something that needs to be "won" (or something that can be "won", even).

Did you actually watch the video? Or do you only hear what you want to hear? They argued right there about their difference in opinions and left the place in good terms. Not everyone who disagrees with her has to hate her, you know?

Some people are shitty human beings who get off on seeing children hurt and abused. There are enough of them around that you will have heard of some of them.

Having said that, I dont know this guy or neoguff.

You know people dont decide what or who they are attracted to right? Pedophilia is a (unfortunate) sexual orientation. At least he didn't actually hurt anyone. The real criminal are the ones taking the pictures and posting them.

You can be turned on by almost anything. I could think my brothers wife is gorgeous... but I dont act on it.

You can say he didnt hurt anyone. Tell that to someone who is having pictures of themselves being tortured and raped passed around and masturbated too. They might disagree that he is not hurting anyone.

I respectfully disagree with you and I will not be excusing people viewing and sharing child abuse material. They are real criminals, morally and legally.

I don't disagree with what you are saying. It's very unfortunate. But i pedophilia is one of those subjects that make people disgusted ( rightfully so) but they don't think about it in a deeper manner than that.

Do you know why most pedophiles tend to be older people? Because they have been fighting it their entire lives. Because they know it's morally and legally wrong. They fight the urge everytime they go outside. For years.

Imagine someone told you your perticular sexual orientation was bad and shouldn't exist. So naturally, you feel disgusted and bad about yourself your entire life. You try, every day o your life, not to look at men or women or whatever have you are attracted to. You fight the urge, for years on end. You lie to youself and try to forget it. Try to be attracted to other things. Maybe you manage to suppress it, but in the back of your mind it is always there. And then one day you crack, youve been holding it in for 10, 15, 30, 50 years. And you just lose the willpower. So you say, I'll just look at it online.

Now im not trying to excuse pedophilia, however i would like people to think harder about it. The problem is there are little to know resources to help these people. It holds so much shame and stigma that even asking for help is hard and embarrassing. These people need support and help from trained physicians. Unfortunately, once you are branded a pedophile, you are cast out and shunnned by society. It's a lose/lose situation for them.

I hesitantly make the comparaison, and this may undermind my comment, but there are lines to be drawn with the way homosexuals were treated 50 years ago. While homosecuality is NOT morally wrong. 50 years ago they were shunned by society, and many had to shamefully hide their desires. And denying themselves the freedom to act on them, had grave repercussions on their physche.

All I'm trying to say, is i would like phedophiles to be able to get the help they need in order to lead normal and healthy lives before they hurt someone irreparably. And it's a much deeper subject than people give it credit for.

Are you accusing me of hate? I just disagree with her and think she is a professional victim.

Boogie may have solved it but he didn't let it go, he posted a video telling everyone what had happened which was a good thing. It's the reason we even know about it.

Your argument seems to be that I should let it go since Boogie did, he didn't though.

I can only speak for the UK but the dirty old man thing is a stereotype. There are child sex offenders of all ages. You see lots of older SOs in prison as many of them are not caught until years after the offence.

Living with a nasty secret is unfortunate but you do not have to act on your base desires, that is what seperates us from animals. My example of being attracted to someone elses wife is apt. You can think it, you can feel it. You can even beat off thinking about it in the appropriate setting but you do not act on it.

There is support out there, help lines and a few agencies like circles of support but none of this excuses harming children.

And you analogy to homosexuality was a poor one. One is an act between consenting adults. The other child abuse.

Of course this would result in gamergate being dragged in for no better reason than some people wanted to gripe about it. Ok then, fine, lets hammer that nail right off the bat.

Don't make me dig up Reaxxion articles again.

First off, please stop regurgitating your own personal hang ups and pretending they are fact. It is just exhausting having to keep dragging out the flaws with it only for you to keep pretending it is perfectly valid to keep repeating it.

"Gamergate" didn't want their own personal politics, vast majority were just sick of politics being pushed and how they were being pushed, both the tactics used to push the politics, and the use of politics to deflect criticism. This was why things like the "gamers are dead" articles caused such a backlash, the use of political bullshit to distract and shield from the very ral issues of journalistic unprofessionalism and unethicality. Fittingly enough, as though was a collective of people from all over the political spectrum, it was still representative of the demographic of gamers in general, and most were more still anti-authoritarian left then anything else.

I get you want to pretend it was some sort of far-right paramilitary fascist regime because it satisfies your personal views, or that gamergate forced out all leftists by not accepting the early attempts by some to tone-police or let it be hijacked into some sort of special cause you liked or someone on the chans called you a mean name of whatever personal experience chipped your shoulder, but gamergate as a total wasn't anything but a apolitical consumer response to terrible games media and personalities who themselves shared a political view that they used to shield and distract their fuck ups with. It is grossly dishonest to keep repeating your claims when they are outright fabrication. Your cherry-picked examples of people associated with it that can be twisted into supporting your point of view doesn't change that, and really, after being addressed by multiple people dozens of times by now if not more, it strips any and all integrity in your arguing it. Hell, reaxxion wasn't even accepted by gamergaters in general, was more of a fanboy of GG that was found annoying and usually only ever part of the conversation when brought up specifically by people opposed to gamergate as a weak "aha!" gotcha. The "but they are this, and associated, so you all must be this". I mean hell, you'd been better off pointing to milo if only because of his relevance to GG. You'd still be entirely wrong about your claim, but at least you wouldn't have tried to drag up a z-grade nobody most of GG didn't even know of as some damning association of the whole group. Do you want to be associated with this mod like that? I can argue his relevance to anti-GG far more than the like of jackasses like Roosh was to gamergate if you really want to go down that path of guilt by association. Seem to recall a lot of anti-gg were housed in or openly supportive of neogaf after all.

-----
But lets take that tactic of guilt by association a moment and set it aside for now.

On the topic itself, the fact someone from a site renowned for abusing their authority in the name of their religiously-held political beliefs was found to be both hypocritical and contemptible in their personal affairs is nothing new. That they openly opposed gamergate and, like many many others who did, were guilty of the same shit they accused it of is certainly nothing new either. Anti-GG over the last few years has been filled with accounts of harassers, doxers, sexual assaulters, rapists by their own admission and standards, and pedophiles.

Now this event itself certainly does have value to the public, as a moderator for a public site, knowing that someone who had authority and connections to the management and moderation was actively involved in child porn is worrying. Their political, ideological, and fervor uniformity, the sort of topics allowed on the site compared to those not as dictated by the mods, and the nature of the topic itself all are immediate concerns to both participants of that site, and anyone who can be associated to it (such as other gaming forum sites such as this one), and to gamers in general. Child porn isn't pulled out of thin air and internet connections and the application of the mod powers and the powers of friends and fellow mods are worrying avenues to think about in relation to the crime itself. A mod or a friend of a mod found guilty of a crime like this allowing threads discussing pedophilia suddenly has a very worrying connotation.

Now, and this is the important part, this, and the myriad of other examples of anti-gg being horrible people of course doesn't mean that all anti GG are tainted because of their association. And I will say I am very happy I have not yet seen any anti-gg trying to defend this pedophile's actions the way they have defended others in the past. So with all that said, how about we concentrate more on the topic of their actions and the relevance of it given their position and connections and how that will affect things, rather than trying to drag this into another "but gamergate" thread of pointlessness that ignores the original topic just to let some satisfy the chip on the shoulder some have about gamergate itself?

You missed my point. A shame. I said the way homosexuals were TREATED by society. What do you think happens if someone calls a helpline and says they have pedophilic urges? If they physically go out and tries to meet someone for their problem.

But i get it. Everyone thinks that way. It's a lot harder than people give it credit.

Straw man. Most people didn't care who the villains were in Far Cry 5. The ridiculous fake article was not put out by GG.

nothing you said in this post shows that all of GG is right wing. If you keep trying to portray everyone you disagree with in a certain light while getting mad that others do the same to you then you are choosing to continue to pointlessly bicker instead of reaching understanding or conveying a point. If you want to misrepresent others and put them into political pigeonholes then do not be surprised if you are perceived as being rude and unnecessarily combative.

Such as the open lie about "distributing CP" since, you know the place acts as a federal investigation honeypot, openly working with them to catch pedophiles. Like Anti-GG neogaf mod Amir0x, who the thread is actually about.

That you demonize an entire group to this day for it is telling. Makes me wonder if a man of Hispanic origin stole your parking spot on that day you wouldn't be blaming the mexicans instead now.

As for farcry 5? The game that got praised by a number of the far-left leaning folk, including the forums in the site Neogaf, as a far-right murder simulator until they corrected the misunderstanding of it, and then got lambasted by those who cheered it previously?

Great way to bring us back on topic though.

The chans were known to work with federal investigators into actual child porn (you know, not cartoons, real children) so that is an avenue I hadn't thought of before. Perhaps Neogaf were working with the fed as a means to track down folk like Amir0x as well?

Except the gamers who just wanted identity politics left out of their games.

Again, then it was nobody.

GamerGate wanted THEIR identity politics (right wing nationalist) promoted, not absent entirely.

Don't make me dig up Reaxxion articles again.

Is that so, you think most gamers ever gave two thoughts about the gender of the bullet sponges before this shit started?

Most gamers don't give two thoughts about the gender of the bullet sponges now.
