Meanwhile, the gamergate mob has spent the last five fucking hours arguing with an Elizabot that someone hooked to a Twitter account.
... If that is repeatable, that might be a good way of dealing with them. :D It would let people use the phrase "Occupy Gamergate" with a new twist. ;)

It's not the Valerie Solanas Bot, is it? Because that would be so rich, a bunch of sociopaths arguing with a sociopathic bot.

Man, I haven't been following this for a while because, Christ it's exhausting and stupid, but I'm wondering if any of the non-psychotic GamerGate supporters have written about why they feel the need to associate themselves with a bunch of psychotic trolls.

That deadspin article up-thread is pretty critical both of Depression Quest and the state of games journalism, while also being critical of Gamergate. It's not a confusing or difficult position to express.

So, okay, you're a not-totally-shitty person who has disagreements with mainstream feminist criticism and you don't like how cozy games journalism is with games developers.

Fair enough, me too.

But what do you get from associating yourself with a bunch of trolling creeps? What are they bringing to the table other than misery, and why do you feel the need to make common cause with them?

Has anybody bothered to address this, yet?

According to ol' Jimmy D, even proud bastion Games Workshop is under assault because its main female army presence are stripper dominatrix elves. I... have a... I have a sad?
Totally unfair. Obvious cherrypicking!

There's an army of fetish nuns, too.
