If memory serves, someone on CA (back when it did blogs and whatnot in addition to videos) more or less did an expose on the whole b8chan thing, bringing to light that it had been used to distribute child pornography.  GG, if I'm remembering correctly, had a fair presence on b8chan and saw it as an attack on them and essentially got the dude fired from CA; because if there's one thing GG hates more than women who talk, its people trying to take their precious spank material.  They sent threats to the dude and went over his head to Michaud and the latter, being a scummy fucking weasel, decided to fire the guy who exposed what amounted to a child porn ring instead of telling the wannabe kiddie fiddlers to go fuck themselves.  Ya know, like any self-respecting human being would've done.

Yup, it was Dan Olsen that did the expose about 8chan being infested with child pornography. And it had them going to Michaud and demanding him be fired. It's the event that lead directly to the resignations of Lindsay Ellis (because Michaud thought it was a great idea to call her to bitch about him as if she was his handler) and Kyle Kallgren.

And, because GamerGate is little more than petty children, they still hold a grudge. As for how they seem to insert themselves into every Internet scandal, well, that's because they've got nothing better to do.

Fuck it, as far as I'm concerned, GG is a criminal organization.  They have aided and abetted those who consume (at the very least, maybe even create) child pornography; they are every bit as culpable as the sick fucks that get their rocks off to 8 year-olds.

Okay, now I'm interested in that trainwreck. If that's true, then they've got a permanent place on my shitlist. I don't have any children yet, but I do have nieces and nephews, and the thought of them being exploited in such a way...

Wait so they were already going after Olson for the JewWario thing before his post went up? I thought that happened after it, because that's the impression I got from seeing a twitter thread by mombot (a gamergate person) that was reposted on a different SA thread later.

Like the order I saw it happening in was: Dan posts on SA --> GamerGators on twitter post about his SA post --> the twitter thread makes its way back to SA. I've seen plenty of gators keep dumb grudges (ex: the Anita Sarkeesian obsession), but honestly Dan strikes me as being of a similarly obsessive stock. He may have been fired because of their compaints, but the onus on actually going through with that is Michaud.

As far as I know, if Mombot's thread was after Dan's SA post, then it's only because GamerGaters were throwing accusations at him before the thread was created. Keep in mind that while Dan may be the biggest target here, he's not the only one. Jacob Chapman has been sea lioned about it, as have Todd in the Shadows and Lindsay Ellis apparently. Even Tony Goldmark has had to tell these assholes off. I don't think Dan is as obsessed as you think he is, it's just that his connection to the whole GamerGate mess is more personal than most.

And apparently Doug is listing himself on Facebook as having formerly worked at Channel Awesome.

Michaud is probably burning things right now in a rage.

Doug's finally getting the memo?  Colour me legitimately surprised...I thought it'd have taken much longer.  Good on 'im, if its true.

...wonder how long it'll be before Michaudseid just decides screw it and Omega Beams the whole Channel Awesome website in a fit of rage.

I call him that because of his..."unique" management style, namely, I WILL NOT BE QUESTIONED!!!

I would not be surprised if the Walkers have been in contact with a lawyer for the last couple weeks. As I've pointed out before in other places, Doug has more de facto power than Michaud. Even if Michaud is the majority rights owner of the Nostalgia Critic, Doug IS the Nostalgia Critic and, by extension, the Channel Awesome brand. If Doug is out, what's Michaud going to do? Recast the Nostalgia Critic? Well, I would fully expect him to TRY, but I highly doubt it would get him anywhere.

People are debating on if Doug changed that or if there's some kind of glitch/bug with facebook. I'm not sure which is true but if Doug leaves the site before Brad or Larry do then that means CA is pretty much done and those other two will have to leave anyway at the end of the day.

edit: to be more specific apparently it automatically puts "worked at" if you forget to put dates in your work history.
