Chloe has apparently decided to stop sharing information due the vast and huge amount of hate she's received.
Do you blame her? Wouldn't you, if attacked so vociferously, choose to retreat? Hey, I only got mauled on the Groupee's support thread by a homophobic troll and one nasty copycat giveaway to get extremely upset by hatred directed at me.
Imagine thousands of people with your email sending you hate mail - you never know if this one is supportive or contains a bombshell of hate...
Put yourself in her place when you post - really and truly put yourself there...Can you even do that? Does the amount of hate you've allowed yourself to imagine even come close?
Project Zomboid, Thomas Was Alone - they were just innocent bystanders in the path of homophobia and misogyny. Indiegogo, I have a lot less sympathy for - you decided to cave to hate-mongers and in large part, caused this nightmare. PayPal - screw you - you suck when it comes to standing for sexual freedom or anything considered outre - there are plenty of providers to take your place that don't have a moralistic horse to ride - Get a clue and join the 21st century.
For the rest of you - Does one individual have a chance when millions decide to vilify you? Consider that before you add your voice to that hateful crowd. Frankly, it could be you facing that.
There but for the grace of god go I. Consider that in a heartbeat, a momentary lack of judgment, a misstep of fortune- you, I mean you personally, find yourself in media's ray of light. Will you survive it?
Momo, please tone it down. I've read this entire thread, and not one poster in here deserves the accusations you're leveling. You have been right about one thing from the get-go: When someone asks for help, people are free to choose to help without strings attached. And, others shouldn't worry about arguing about that choice. But I'd like to point out that we are also free to not help, for whatever reason. I read the story and I decided not to pitch in. I get asked for help a lot, and I make my own decisions. And, if you want to be free and unmolested when you choose to help someone, you should also leave others free to abstain, express scepticism, etc.
I'm not condoning hate, but you have become indiscriminate with your above post. You imply things about people in this thread which I don't see are true. You also make judgements about Indigogo, PayPal, and the game developers (who you go lightly on) - all of whom made judgements based partly on information that neither you nor we have. I would suggest that you do not know enough to decide what exactly went on.
So, please, let's keep the civility this forum is characterized by. After all, it's one of the main reasons I came and I stayed.
