Rusty_Gunn: Gamergate is but one theatre (of war) in a much larger culture war that's still happening

tinyE: You just ripped that off from Bill O'reilly.
Honest, I don't watch Bill O'reilly, so I didn't know he said first. But to me it just seemed obvious that Gamergate was part of something larger.

Yeah, a war against culture in general, otherwise I can't explain why sites like RPS and Gamasutra seemed to take the brunt of the gamergate wave but larger portals went by unscathed, almost like they were more concerned with intellectualism in the gaming press rather than real corruption. :/

Det_Bullock: Well, he fully concurs with the article (language notwithstanding), and I happen to more or less concur with the article myself.

In general I think that Gamergate is at best a waste of time and energy on the wrong targets, at worst an excuse to go against said targets under an apparently noble cause.

richlind33: Gamergate, or Chris Kluwe?

richlind33:
I don't know about the rest but I concur from what was said in the article by and large, though I'm not surprised a guy who uses that kind of blunt language might have gotten in trouble on the internet.

Not a smart one. Even the name is kind've stupid. Even if all those allegations about "ethics in games journalism" were true, to equate it to Watergate shows a complete lack of perspective.

The gate suffix doesn't equate something to Watergate, it merely denotes it as a controversy or scandal.
