Because I think we're long overdue.

Oh look an unneeded thread that could just just as easily have fit into another thread.

Don't we already have a thread on GamerGate?
There is no plague more evil and vile to watch spread than the plague that is the Von Habsburg dynasty.

Yeah...it's called Quinnspiracy.

Ironbite-no reason for another thread on a subject already being talked about in a thread already made.

Another thread made, and regularly posted in, by the person who made this thread.
"Politician" is the occupational equivalent of "Florida".

I am having trouble understanding the whole gamergate, Zoe Qunn and Anita Sarkeesian thing but what fucking baffles me is how you didn't know you ,UP, started the original thread 'Quinnspiracy'. About this very topic.

UP do you have disassociative disorder, multiple personalities or are you multiple people. Do you smoke crack?

As he mentioned in the other thread: He felt that the Gamergate is a separate issue from the original "Quinnspiracy."
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

"Quinnspiracy" is what kicked off gamergate, but is currently only a small sliver of what the broader movement is about. A new thread is appropriate.

Your "facts" and "logic" are meaningless in the face of Ironbite's hate boner for Ultimate Paragon.

I'll ask the same question here I did in the last thread, then:

Are the pro-GamerGate types still trying to claim that games aren't/shouldn't be about fun anymore?

Can't this and the other thread be merged and renamed instead?

I think you mean the anti-GamerGate types.

OK, everyone who thinks GamerGate is its own separate topic: mind giving a quick summary of what it's about? Kind of pointless to have a thread to discuss a topic if apparently nobody can agree on what the topic is.
