Wow. You assholes ran Wil Wheaton ' s wife off of twitter.
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
Same reason /pol/ blames jews and niggers for everything.
Its a basic inability to cope with the fact that reality is not black and white , so you formulate a scapegoat to become your villain.
>I hate this, must be the work of men/whites/heteros/cis/the privileged
>I hate this, must be the work of jews/niggers/liberals/shillary/the SJWs
>mfw I'm Jewish and have never been invited to the grand conspiracy to control the world
I get a laugh going to /pol/ though
>Wheaton married Anne Prince on November 7, 1999 and lives in Arcadia, California with her and her two sons from a previous relationship. When one son was 18, he asked Wheaton to legally adopt him, which he did.
>raising another man's children
>wife openly flirts with other men publicly
>supports SJW causes and white knights for nerd culture females like felicia day
he's a better personification of the cuck meme than brendan frasier tbqh my familia
And being related to larry flint, creator of penthouse magazine isn't fame?
Concerning skin tones: Black - White
Two opposite ends of the spectrum. Naturally there're things in between: Black - Brown - Yellow - Orange - Tan - etc - White
If there was no spectrum, there'd be only one color: Black
I'm not a gamer so this is my understanding of gamergate
>Gaming news websites journalists are all sjws and pretty much alienate gamers by insinuating that games make you violent and sexist, a narrative that some conservatives tried to push in the 90s/2000s, and gamers hated, but now that it's being spouted by liberal rad fems, it's supposed to be taken as truth.
>Some of them get found out doing favours with favourable courage for people who they're fucking
>Get btfo and told to stop
>Feminists call it sexism
>MRAs get mad and start chimping out by behaving sexist
>Both MRAs and feminists are desperately trying to assert the other side are the sexist ones when, due to lack of organisation, it's just thousands of people flinging shit at each other now
>Both sides get butthurt that neithet can shape the narrative
>Feminists are slightly more successful, ironically because feminists push the damsel in distress narrative (ie they're all being harassed and need saving), which is pretty easy to believe.
Why do you motherfuckers always make it about politics?
The list of people who've voluntarily removed themselves from twitter due to dipshits ganging up on them is as wide and diverse as the gape between my arse cheeks (which live in different neighborhoods, FYI).
Twitter is the internet hate machine 2.0, and it doesn't spare anyone.
I kind of was going for that with my last point but yeah I didn't specify in the media.
So basically it's nothing? Like devs still want pander to sjws because they're the minority and internet journalists have always been shit so that's the status quo.
Why do people even care? She probably wouldn't have had people disagreeing with her if she didn't assert her opinions like she was an important person or something. Like if you don't want an argument then why give your opinions? It's not like her tweets will change anybody's mind. If I tweeted trannies are subhuman, I would fully expect a billion angry tweets.
That's why you were asked to take a shower when you left that place.
I never liked that image mostly because it basically says that anyone who doesn't constantly bring up SJWs in conversation to the point of obsession are Tumblr trannies. I find the whole SJW phenomenon entertaining, but there are people who live only to talk about how retarded feminism is and will consistently derail mundane threads to talk about how children are being brainwashed to become trannies. There's a time and place for everything, not wanting to think about trannies on Twitter in every last thread doesn't mean anything about anything.
THIS ENTIRE THREAD IS SEXIST, MISOGYNISTIC AND TRANS-PHOBIC! I DEMAND THAT THE MODERATORS OF 4CHAN REMOVE THIS THREAD IMMEDIATELY!
YOU ARE A TRANS-PHOBIC CIS-HET PIECE OF SHIT!
She actually probably got off twitter after some SJW branded her fatphobic.
If you still believe GG is somehow a harassment movement you need to do some research or get your head checked.
>Wheaton married Anne Prince on November 7, 1999 and lives in Arcadia, California with her and her two sons from a previous relationship. When one son was 18, he asked Wheaton to legally adopt him, which he did.
>>MRAs get mad and start chimping out by behaving sexist
This is where you went wrong. This didn't happen at all. MRAs didn't get involved until Anita Cuntsneezian hopped on and decided to make GG entirely about MUH SOGGY KNEES even though it was never about that. Then the MRAs jumped in to tear Anita and her brain damaged allies new shitholes, but by then the damage was already done and the lies she and her femicunt horde told spread like herpes.
In the end though the original goals of GG were met. A number of gaming sites either fired people or changed their site policies. But now GG has become the official boogeyman of feminists and SJWs, which is all kinds of hilarious.
>GG entirely about MUH SOGGY KNEES
That's exactly what it was about. Vidya magazines and sites have relied upon the video game devs whose games they review for advertising money, exclusives, interviews, and early copies of games since day fucking one causing a conflict of interest.
Then the autists sperged out over some guy's blog about a female dev sleeping with people and maybe getting some coverage for her free fucking game.
>only defense is to keep negging my argument with memewords.
I'm wasting my time.
No, the whole thing literally came out of a guy using the "internet hate machine" as his personal army to get back at his now ex. Something that would never have happened in ye olde times.
To cover what they were doing and to get more people in to amplify their message they started talking crap about standards of gaming journalism. Which effectively ammounts to "we don't trust your editorial process" which is fucking meaningless. Oh, and "fuck tabloid journalism" so you know, they then let a man who is practically the king of tabloid journalism become one of their "idols" some sites said some shit to you about changing policy and nothing happened.
The whole thing literally just came because 4chan will let itself become the personal army of someone if you spin a story about bitches and whores these days.
I left twitter because I was drunkenly tweeting my ex wife and her new husband. It got ugly when I linked a 10 minute rambling vocaroo. I did the right thing. Oh and I was tweeting Jordyn Jones too much.
> a bunch of extreme left weirdos get called on their shit
> get trolled by kids on 4chan after they blow up screaming and carrying on like this shit is something important
Nice wall of text tho bro.
If you love faggots and women using game "journalism" as a venue to spout non stop marxist rhetoric, how about you go shit up their comments section and not our site?
Thanks for visiting!
>Oh no! Gamergate left my stairs muffin on the wrong step!
What people seem to miss is that gamergate was just another funny raid stuff 4chan did, it spawned OC and conversations, some people got more involved, they did stuff and then we moved on to the next big thing like always. For these idiots on tumblr and twitter, this was their life time achievement.
This. One side was a bunch of bored kids laughing at retards. The other was retards behaving as if they were in the midst a vast and grand ideological conflict with real world consequences
If you'd go to the larger GG hubs online you would see for yourself that allegations of harassment are completely false.
Of course it's easier to believe SJW narratives when you have hope one of those blue haired whales will allow you to penetrate her air hole one day.
So 4chan doing what it has always done? Annoying retards who overreact and take the internet way too seriously? Seems like a job well done if we got a law and order episide out of it.
Oh yes, as I said at first. These days you can rile up 4chan and make them your personal army very easily. they get offended and will go ham.
I miss the days when people would just say "not your personal army faggot" while sage was in the email field.
>No, the whole thing literally came out of a guy using the "internet hate machine" as his personal army to get back at his now ex.
Objectively not what happened. The blog caused a few more ethically compromised journalists to get exposed, but the start of GG was only triggered when the gamejournopros mailing list coordinating all of those 'gamers are dead' articles leaked.
Accusations of failure to disclose personal relations and other ethical transgressions were then spun by video game 'journalists' as harassment against women, leading to the insane idea that GG is some kind of hate campaign. What really happened is the exact opposite of what you claim.
>they then let a man who is practically the king of tabloid journalism become one of their "idols"
It doesn't really matter if someone writes for a tabloid as long as they have their facts straight. Btw, got any source for that tweet calling for an assassination?
>some irrelevant cunt stopped using twitter for now
>OH SHE WILL BE DEARLY MISSED, SHE WAS LIKE FAMILY TO ME, THIS LOSS IS HARD TO BEAR
what the fuck?
>her kids probably fuck her more than Wil does
You all know it's true.
>I miss the days when people would just say "not your personal army faggot" while sage was in the email field.
But don't forget, it was mostly /v/ manchildren representing 4chan, getting all serious, even when GG was happening most of us were just laughing at how stupid everyone was for taking this shit seriously.
>gamejournopros mailing list coordinating
Did you actually read the logs or just what Milo said about them? if you read them it's 99% completely trivial things. Professionals have email groups like that, it's just what people do. Shockingly enough, they were talking about a recent event and reacting in a similar way. (and ben kuchera was being a cunt, but that's just his default state of existence)
And they have no obligation to reveal anything to -you- that's what editors are for. If they editor things they do, then they do. Not until then though, because that's how things work.
Also it does, because when you "crusade" against tabloid journalism, you don't let the head of one of the scummiest tabloids become a spearhead for you. And Milo's website is very much full of information manipulated to the point where it can't be called truthful in any honest way.
>To cover what they were doing and to get more people in to amplify their message they started talking crap about standards of gaming journalism.
That's not entirely true; I remember people being told that Phil Fish had cooked the books and that some indie game group had given some prize money to Fish's dev. I'm pretty sure none of that turned out to be true, but the point is, saying it wasn't at least partly about ethics is disingenuous.
I'd argue not so, it was about -outrage- not ethics. No one started to attack publishers for their scummy tactics, no one went after dodgy youtubers. They just went for easy targets that it was popular to be angry about.
sorry did I bring back memories of the 6 billion?
I haven't read anything Milo said about them to be honest.
It doesn't matter if the logs were 99% trivial things if the 1% contains such a huge breach of ethics. If you don't think actively coordinating the denouncement of your reader base in response to accusations you prefer not to address is a sound course of action, you're an idiot. Hate to break it to you.
Meanwhile, in the Wheaton household...
>your wife's kids are taller than you
So what you're saying is, you have literally no idea what you're talking about at all.
That's fine and all, but why the fuck do you keep talking when you literally admitted you don't know what you're talking about? not only that, you actually think people talking about article they're writing is an outrage. And that keeping silent is anything other than the course of action any newspaper would have taken. In short, you call me an idiot, but mate, you don't know the first thing about what you're talking about. You just like being angry.
>that whole bathroom scene
>they leveled up
That supercut of the episode was great.
>even when GG was happening most of us were just laughing at how stupid everyone was
It was always great going into the threads, making fun of everyone, and then laughing as both sides accuse you of being on the other side.
>it's okay cause he's gay wil
>he's not getting any pleasure by putting his dick in me :)
Are you actually saying I don't know what I'm talking about because I didn't read what Milo Yiannopoulos wrote about it, right after you claimed what he wrote was false? Please try to be more clear.
>you actually think people talking about article they're writing is an outrage
No I don't, as I said I think collectively coordinating a denouncement of your industry's consumers as a strategy to deflect accusations of unethical behaviour is deplorable. The backlash was totally valid, the media spinning it as a harassment campaign against women wasn't. Sure was effective, though.
>you don't know the first thing about what you're talking about
You made that clear about yourself with your first claims about what happened my man.
He was on Star Trek TNG, and has been riding that train ever since. He's been in a fair amount of stuff since then, but only ever as "that kid from TNG!"
Holy shit, this actually aired on tv? This is fucking hilarious.
he was the brat on TNG
ended up becoming a blogger after his acting career basically ended
Except none of that is what happened, you just keep saying words that have no bearing to reality.
And you even admit not to having read the logs, or anything written about them (presumably outside of what people on 4chan said) so why do you keep spewing pure ignorance?
The best part was that the people they were trying to make look sympathetic ended up hating the episode, and it spawned a shitload of OC.
>And you even admit not to having read the logs
I did not, I only said I didn't read what Milo had written about them. Do you always fill in the blanks yourself when someone doesn't spell out what you want to hear?
>Then the autists sperged out over some guy's blog about a female dev sleeping with people and maybe getting some coverage for her free fucking game.
Wrong. She got trolled, like everyone would in that situation regardless of gender, and the gamers did the usual chants of TYPICAL when they found out game devs were involved. GG didn't officially begin until a dozen or so gaming websites all put out the same exact article on the same exact day saying how evil and sexist gamers are. Then Milo Gayman uncovered the fact that a bunch of these gaming site people were in cahoots to push a specific political agenda and GG went into overdrive.
I know this image is fanning the flames, but fuck it
>mfw i've never experienced the uncanny valley effect with a flesh and blood subject before
moot is sensible and realized enough was enough already
First things first lets all sign that petition to make the government make airports have a special area just for famous people so they don't have to worry about paparazzi then lets have them make a special place on the internet where no one is aloud to say bad things about you or anyone you no. If all of us sign I know we can do it! Also the taxpayers money would be used to fund these things thank you.
This is the first I'm hearing about this but I imagine it went down like this:
z-list celebrity uses whatever little power she has to mock gamers.
"HELP, I'M BEING HARRAAAAAASED!"
>Being a part of "nerd culture" means paying tribute to Wil Wheaton
>tfw you're not, and will never be Anthony Burch
this whole thing was ultimately about manbaby 'gamers' getting trolled by sjwcucks
if they hadn't paid attention to them, it would've been nothing
instead they spazzed out about muh vidya and the sjwcucks made a shit load of cash
The textbook example of why /pol/ is exactly feminism turned on its head. Imagine being the first fag thinking this is clever and shit, without realizing that, while being fairly accurate, he was 100% projecting. Top faggotry
I still have literally no idea what gamergate is, I still have literally no idea why people just put gate on the end of words, I still literally couldn't care less about the Wheaton clan, whoever the fuck Brianna Wu is and what on earth does this have to do with movies?
>why people just put gate on the end of words
Because it makes them feel like they are part of an actual scandal.
I genuinely think that /pol/ is just tsundere for Jews and black people.
They're like closet gays when it comes to the two, secretly wanting to be Jew to control the world from the shadows, and black because they'd have bigger dicks and be better at basketball or something.
I was caught int the storm when it started, but got out quickly.
It started as a call for better ethics in game journalism after a sex scandal pushed disgruntled gamers over the boiling point, but quickly escalated into a right wing and MRA mouthpiece that played right into the hands of the SJW favoring media corporations that owned the journalism sites they were rallying against.
I advocated a "vote with your wallet" approach, that is: Ignore clickbait and SJW mouthpiece sites and reward and advocate publications that focused on gaming in a sensible manner. I was drowned out by screams of how women and transpeople are the blight of the world.
Yeah, that Rolaren pleb who's been posting here for the past few months. He quit I think tho
Wow, this place is LITERALLY CROSSPOSTING: THE BOARD.
This board died in 2013 due to /sp/ /v/ and Facebook moving in due to Baneposting and never left with their crossposting underage and normie memefaggotry and spam, and flavor of the month circlejerk discussion.
For the last 2 years, the moderation is at an all time low of in terms of even controlling the fucking spam here, let alone deleting crossposting faggotry you see from /sp/ or /v/.
For the last 2 years, half the board (5 page) have had threads with less than 12 replies. Half the board is literally unused threads or spam. The last two pages are literally less than 3 replies, over 20 useless threads.
Blame those two boards and more normies and idiots coming over and never leaving or learning to assimilate to board culture, all while increasing the post count over time (posts/minute or posts/hour).
>fuck you /tv/
>he is part of /tv/ himself
>something no one should ever give two fucks about
>he gives more than two fucks as proven by his post
How does it feel to be the laughing stock of this thread?
More than likely the poster was disgusted to see blatant /v/ crap on /tv/, and the mods being a bunch of a useless cucks, literally.
/mu/ is the poison in /v/ which came in with the same ilk. There were never that many 3x3/mu shit tier of crap until /sp/ and /v/ were post-Bane. I've been here too long to know.
I wake up to hope to see something and all I see in terms of most replies in the catalog:
>/v/ shit (Wu)
>/v/ shit (Spoony)
>/sp/ shit (Reality show Intern)
>/sp/pol/ shit (lets get people angry over retarded Liberals posting their white people are ____ retarded twitters!)
>more /sp/pol/ shit
>Spiderman 2 memes
>/v/ shit (Ass Creed)
>/v/ shit (LETS MIRROR THINGS XD LOL HOW FUNNY, saw this on /v/ a few weeks ago)
>RLM (more e-celeb /v/ cancer)
/tv/ is literally /sp/v/2.0
Nothing but the same retarded plebshit day in and day out unless something new happens like someone dying to invigorate new discussion
This place is full of fucking retards. I hate baneposting and the fappening to have brought in all the fucking uneducated spam spewing mobile-posting normie and underage retards who have 0 coherence to their thoughts.
Also, I head over to /v/:
>MUH VIDEOGAMES (insert tv/movies here)
Literally the same baitposting shitposting faggots that migrated here from /sp/ and /v/.
Thanks for the confirmation, child.
/sp/ and /v/ killed /tv/ starting in 2013; 2015 was the final nail in the coffin.
Your point was moot from beginning. /tv/ was always cancer. Every board was cancer from its inception. You're basically complaining that you're now dying of lung cancer instead of bowel cancer. You are the worst type of newfag posing as an oldfag, always talking about "the good old days" and about how everything was perfect in the past. Most of the oldfags have left, and those that have remained always knew that 4chan was never good.
When you start with baneposting, your credibility goes out the window.
When you mentioned screencaps than rather first hand anecdotes, I again assumed you have no knowledge to be able to discuss this unless you know the bigger picture, where you do not know either.
I don't have a photographic memory, so screencaps are the only window I have to those days. Hard to remember thousands upon thousands of random posts on random topics.
In my experience all boards on 4chan are shit and very rarely I found interesting topics. It's like digging for gold in shit, with patience you can find a nugget here and there. Just don't pretend that that lump you're digging into is made of massive gold.
>In my experience all boards on 4chan are shit
That is literally a meme.
Most boards started out innocent, found their stride, then got overgrossed with a huge populace due to their topics or another community finding access (i.e. Gaia, Gamefaqs, whateverblacksheep, Facebook, lifting websites, SomethingAwful, etc)
/tv/ was not bad before 2010. Keep spouting this meme, but I have my own personal archive saved too.
I'd have to readjust the .css in order for it format properly as a localhost html, but I can easily disprove you even from threads from 2011.
I even stated this in my original pasta up above.
The fact we have 5+ pages of <14 replies of threads shows how fucking diluted and Facebook-spam like this place is now that retarded /sp/ Instagram using plebs and /v/ kiddies have abused this place.
All communities that outgrow themselves have that fate. Now your page 9-10 are filled with empty shitpost threads, before you had them filled with empty faux intellectual. The Lost threads were awesome, but that's mainly because of the show itself since few shows had a target audience like it ever since. Nowadays the most popular shows are garbage like GoT or capeshit, hardly something that would produce quality OC.
>all communities outgrow
>goes in to comparisons
That is subjective and pretty bad that you chose LOST as an example.
The threads were pretty diversified back in pre2010, pre-waifucaust days.
The fact that threads could last for a week is something, even with a moderate post per minute count. It was it was shunned back then to start posting threads starting with:
Fuck you faggot for not taking this in perspective. Shit spam like that was NOT allowed. Moderation was NOT shit like that back then. We did not have the population making threads a mile a minute either with no real thought either.
>>can't do anything about them
we've done it before, why cant we do it again?
You've complained about spoony threads, you know why he's here and not on /v/? Because over there the mods were autistic enough to delete threads about him despite not breaking the rules. And since he technically covered movies, he's pretty /tv/.
Fuck you faggot for being le no fun allowed man. Baneposting has some really funny shit in it despite the mountains of copypasta. Same goes for JUST, sheevposting or any other type of posting. The Sharkposting thread is hilarious as fuck and it's been up for one whole day already.
