Really though, we shouldn't be using '-gate' for this stuff.
It's some bs story about an indie dev, let's not put it on the same level as political scandals. It is nowhere near that important.

Some chick named Zoe Quinn made a game, stuff got out about her using all sorts of lies and trickery to get favorable reviews, the thing ended up a shitstorm.
I was under the impression that those were actually two semi-related but separate things.
Like, GG wasn't about that but somehow stemmed from it or something.
I dunno.
Lyeos, go home. You're drunk. Not literally.

It's the same people. They just named themselves with a #trendy #hashtag and broadened who they're talking about.

WTF is gamergate?  Why would you name a gaming anything with a name one letter off from an online games distributor for one, and for two what could possibly have happened in the gaming world to be comparable to fucking watergate?
I'd point you to the last thread but it was mod purged. My sig about gasoline is appropriate here, it was from that thread. It's all about how game devs and game reporters are in bed and sometimes even literally in bed whilst not telling this to the public. Also shit about mass censorship across many websites which aren't even game websites and even mass social engineering done by coordinated mods, janitors and admins across various social media sites which seems to have gotten lost amidst a sea of people arguing over feminism and vidyas.

It's more like an Ex-BF got pissed and slandered the hell out of her. Shouldn't have been a big deal but FuuuuuUUUCK /b/

Wouldn't explain the other devs who got doxxed or why so many sites were experiencing takeovers and purges. And what does /b/ have to do with any of this of all places?

It was basically this. http://seriouspony.com/trouble-at-the-koolaid-point

And most of which was organized on /pol/ and /v/, before the topic got kicked off 4chan. Which tells you how bad the idiots were.

Indeed.

So my cat apparently has this crazy warbly meow that he uses when he sees birds that sounds almost the same as a really creaky door. I've never heard a cat make that sound before now. :P

Pills which are literally poop.

This pill goes down easier if you forget what is in it.

Inside the experimental capsule is human feces strained, centrifuged and frozen.

Well, it's better than the old way of fecal transplant, if I'm correct.

So, my tablet is probably haunted...

I tried to open the camera application, and it said it could not connect to the camera, then crashed the tablet. I turned it back on, and it showed a ghostly image of my face and froze. I shut it down, and when I tried to turn it back on it flashed blue once a second for as long as I held the button

I left it for a few minutes, and the battery had dropped from 80% to 1% when I turned it back on.

Sell the tablet to ghost enthusiasts and earn $$$.
