1. Some other stuff that’s come up since the previous post on the subject:

    1) A blog post that goes into the chat logs from the irc channel where these folks were getting their hate on. ALL THE TRIGGER WARNINGS, THIS IS SOME GROSS STUFF

    2) Apparently even 4chan is starting to not put up with the gaters

    https://4chon.net/v/index.html seems to be the new safe haven for #GamerGate in the face of 4chan’s censorship and hard shilling

    Let that sink in for a minute: “in the face of 4chan’s censorship”
    We are officially in bizzaro world.

  2. Oh also, the editor’s note at the top of that cracked piece is pretty great:

    It’s apparently a big deal in some circles, so we followed the links and read the piles of data presented, and had to stop and take a deep breath just to grasp it all. “Gentlemen,” we said amid the stunned silence, “do you realize that if what they’re saying is true, then this is still the most pointless fucking bullshit anyone has ever forced us to read?”

  3. More than usually: don’t read the comments. (On Cracked, I mean. You can read them here.)

Sorry, comments are closed for this post.

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you

  • Thank and Favorite all the goodness
  • Build a profile page with all your stuff in one convenient place
  • Send private messages and friend/follow your favorite GFites and their unstoppable Gfiltering style
  • Feel the warm glow of satisfaction in helping grow the community
  • Do all sorts of other neat things, both now and coming in the future!

Gamefilter is part of the growing MefightClub Network of sites, including our forum home, MefightClub itself, FullGlassEmptyClip, our group blog, and Ludic Research Labs, who are a bunch of bastards.

Your genial host is stavrosthewonderchicken, the miraculous poultry who built and administers the MFC Network sites, and a bunch of other web stuff as well. He has a minor addiction to building websites. He loves you all.
