OP for later threads:
Any and all evidence or screencaps we have of Guardian/New Statesman journalists/contributors /affiliates being abusive or flippant etc should be sent to:
With a brief explanation of #gamergate (though the screenshots themselves should be juicy enough to pique their interest).
They fucking LOVE taking shots at the left and The Guardian in particular.
http://order-order.com/2014/08/01/gender-segregated-editorial-meetings-at-guardian/ [ESPECIALLY THIS]
There is a high chance they will run with this if we show Graun journalists / contributors are acting improperly. Might also be useful to point to @Nero's recent involvement too, they move in the same media circles.
REPEAT: THERE IS A HIGH CHANCE THEY WILL RUN WITH IT
I'm putting together an email now, DO THIS.
So, I finished my email to games.on.net about their article. Let me know if there's something blatantly wrong with it.
Had to make it into a pastebin, too long for 4chan: http://pastebin.com/qtk37CvH
Gonna have to post it soon, need to go to bed, got to work in the morning.
Arguing with these people is kinda fun. They are so beta it's unbelievable.
>REMINDER NOT TO FOCUS ON ZOE.
She has been chewed to the bone, and proven to attack and take down wizchan and tyfc, proven to be a scam, and proven to be a shitty manipulative person.
>REMINDER TO NOT FOCUS ON ANITA
She ignored the issue until now. She just wants attention, since she became irrevelant long ago. Bitching about getting attacked further proves this.
>REMINDER THAT SJW ARE JUST CANNON FODDER FOR THE PEOPLE TO HIDE BEHIND
Don't try to destroy or attack them. We aren't doing this for them, besides they are long past redemption. The relevant people just hide behind or in their lines.
>REMINDER NOT TO GET SIDETRACKED OR DERAILED AND KEEP THE GOAL BEFORE YOU AT ALL TIMES"
I believe each and everyone has his own personal goal with this, but what we set out to do is proving that the vidya journos are corrupt. This has been suspected before, but now we have actual proof of it happening. Also, try not to derail threads, and try not to fight between yourselves.
>REMINDER TO REMAIN COLLECTED, CALM, AND RATIONAL.
There are people standing in the middle, and being the rational ones with proof WILL make them favour us. Don't go down to their shit flinging level, because they have more experience in that.
>THEY HAVE DENOUNCED "GAMERS". THAT MEANS THAT THEY NOT ONLY JUST ATTACKED US BUT THEY ATTACKED THE PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE TOO. THEY FUCKED UP. KEEP PRESSING ON, WE ALMOST HAVE THIS SHIT.
>KEEP IN MIND THAT WE ARE WINNING, AND EVEN THE NORMIES AND SOME DEVS WITH US TO SOME EXTENT, AND IF THEY ARE THEN YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE MAKING FUCKING PROGRESS, PLUS ADVERTISERS ARE TAKING NOTICE OF THE E-MAILS.
>WE GAINED PRIVATE EYE'S ATTENTION. DON'T WASTE IT. COMPILE SHIT ABOUT KOTAKU AND OTHER UK "BLOGGER"SITES.
>LASTLY, KEEP THE PRESSURE ON, BE THERE WHEN THEY FUCK UP AND DON'T FALTER OR CRUMBLE BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE ACTIVELY TRYING TO WEAR THIS DOWN.

the sad part is these days 4chan attacks people less than fucking SJWs.
And in the days of 4chan actually attacking people?
It was shit like BRB Church.
People committing harmful crimes, with evidence.
And a stance of 'Not your personal army' that kept people from getting attacked over hearsay.
It's not just about SJW. It's about the gaming industry as a whole.
Let's be real: There's very major problems with the big devs: product placement, paying for good reviews, industry stagnation (Can't wait for CAll of Duty Modern Warfare Advanced Ghost Fighter 2!)
So where does fresh blood come in? Who revitalizes the industry? Who saves video games?
Indie developers. There are moves being made in the indie game scene that will one day be reflected in the major developers. It's been like this for a long, long, time. It's widely known among the
industry that big developers take ideas and recruit talent from indie developers. But if you want to be an indie developer, you have to cowtow to the SJW
cliques in order to get ANYWHERE.
How to be a successful indie developer, 2006:
>Go to school for game design/programming/computer science/something else oriented towards games
>get work within the industry (testing, most likely)
>free time? Design some mods
>word of mouth spreads
>if your game is good, people take notice!
How to be a successful indie developer, 2014:
>make friends with a video game blogger
>tweet about how any non-white, non-male, non-homosexual is killing "your" hobby
>churn out some 8-bit shit, maybe with a catchy chiptune! (Because the medium is still where it was 25 years ago, right?)
Indie developers with GOOD games are being margnalized.
Save indie games, save gaming.

HASHTAG IS #NOTYOURSHIELD FOR SPECIAL JAMMING OP
>USE THE TAGS TOGETHER. #NOTYOURSHIELD + #GAMERGATE
>DO NOT USE ONLY #NOTYOURSHIELD
USE THESE TO TALK ABOUT SJW HYPOCRISY. BE CLEARLY IN FAVOUR OF #GAMERGATE. FOCUS ON CORRUPTION AND HOW YOUR VOICE IS SILENCED BECAUSE YOU DON’T FIT THE AGENDA. LET YOUR FRUSTRATION FLOW.
EVERYONE: RETWEET THE HELL OUT OF #NOTYOURSHIELD
>IF YOU ARE WHITE, CIS AND MALE DO NOT MAKE “CLAIMS” ON THIS TAG
Your girlfriend does not count. She must speak for herself. Your friends do not count. AUTISM DOES NOT COUNT. “Classical” minorities only.
Use the tag as ammo but DO NOT “participate” in it!
>ADVICE ON USE OF #NOTYOURSHIELD
Targeting is crucial to avoid SJW hijack or normal-person misunderstanding/dismissal of this tag. Make sure your tweet is CLEARLY in favour of #GamerGate and AGAINST SJW hypocrisy/corrupt journalists. Misinterpretation is SJW bread and butter.
OPEN TO HIJACK/MISINTERPRETATION:
>"As an Asian who deals with more serious social justice issues, I'm #notyourshield #Gamergate"
^^ Could be interpreted as "I am not the shield of GamerGate, stop claiming to represent me, gamers."
>"I love games, and I'm black, so to all you who claim to be fighting for equality I'm #notyourshield for your agenda."
^^ Leaves out #GamerGate. To the casual observer, appears to be against those fighting for "equality". Equality is our word against the SJWs we paint as extremist. Also appears to be "against equality". Also easily interpreted as "#GamerGate claims to represent me". Very attackable.
>"Being Latino isn't enough; Now I have SJW claiming to "fight for my equality" by trying to silence my free speech #NotyourShield #GamerGate"
>"Genderqueer person, checking in. I am #notyourshield , journalists! #GamerGate”

I feel like you guys are the crack troops of this movement simply because the enemy can't fob you off with accusations of "x-ism." That's their fucking Kryptonite.
I wish I could give you guys actual medals when this is done, you deserve them, win or lose.
SJW is extremism and so is racism.
Fuck off with that shit, take allies where you can get them.
THERE IS NO DOUBT NOW
THEY GOT A CORRUPT MOD WORKING FOR THEM

Oh boy, time to spam the threads again
Mainstream journalism is dividing in mocking us and a "let's sit together and talk" approach
- See last Gaurdian article, with a more leutral approach
What we should do now:
1) to say that we are NOT mysoginists, racists or whatsoever;
2) to say that we CONDEMN harrassement against anyone, even if we disagree with them;
3) to say that this is not a hardcore x casual issue;
4) to say that, due to the fact that we want everyone to play games, we DO CONDEMN ALL attempts in hijacking this entertainment for ANY political agenda;
5) We have a purpose: a creation of an INDEPENDENT organization, formed by gamers, game journalists, advertisers, devs, big studios and other stakeholders to make a CODE OF ETHICS to gaming journalism, concearning mainly the relationship between game journalists and devs/studios.
Not that person, but whether we win or lose.
We know the truth and we always have each other. No matter how much they ruin our hobby and culture, they can't take our love away.
Indies has never been good. The only really good ones I can think of are:
-Recettear - Japanese
- Winnie the pooh baseball - free flash game
- Princess Trainer - Porn game
And maybe Shovel Knight. But shovel knight devs aren't SJW monger. This proves your theory to be false
Why didn't Frodo just ask gandalf about the SJWs?
>Thread not bumping
Damn it, mods.
So, I have over 2.6k followers on Tumblr and I've been pretty active in #GamerGate and #notyourshield on Twitter.
I'm an anime blog though, my followers don't care for SJW shit because I actively push them away from my blog by surrounding myself with other "problematic" people.
Anything I can do to help a little on that side? Been seeing Matt get fucking slaughtered by a few teenage tumblrina's here and there.
While I am Anonymous on Tumblr, I'm black so they can't pull this oppression olympics bullshit on me.
All the Leigh Alexander caps and her calling Baldwin a crackhead (Leigh contributes to The Graun).
The Jenn Frank piece being amended.
Keith Stewart being sarcastic whick tweeting at Alexander.
And that one of a Graun journo telling someone to fuck off (that's the last cap I need btw so if anyone has it please?)
Minecraft, Dwarf Fortress, Super Meat Boy, FTL and Papers, Please are good. They also aren't very SJW.
I was speaking in generalities...you don't HAVE to be SJW to succeed, of course, but I'm willing to bet if the guy who made FTL wrote on his twitter that "Gay marriage isn't right," that we'd never be playing FTL.
I just want to play games. If my experience in faggotry is helpful to make that possible then I'm more than willing to do it.
Post about Gamergate in a "special message" kind of way
>I know we're about anime here and I try not to mention social justice things, but blah blah blah...
At the end:
>This is all I have to say about the topic, since I try to focus on anime here, but check out the #gamergate and #notyourshield hashtags on twitter. I'll answer any questions you have about gamergate on twitter as well.
why wouldn't you listen /v/
I told you Armstrong was a loose kincannon
First, journalist should apologize for 'Gamers are dead' articles. Then, they should write an article asking people what should they do, and enable comments of various opinions from both sides.

Just put out the absolute facts about what's going on. Speak primarily about #notyourshield and what it's in response to, it's the most relatable thing we have going for us. Encourage people to support it.
Alright, fair enough.
Sucks, you have been awesome through all of this and without saying too much, I have some friends who could be pretty helpful so grabbing beers with them in a different state could be difficult.
Should I use my real Twitter account to push this? I'm just kind of worried about people I know see me post about it.
I'm not any kind of minority, but
my name is Quinn and I thought it'd be kind of cool to have a Quinn on our side too.
We need to get rid of all the current SJW game journlolists and indie dev morons and make it clear that anyone who tries to follow in their footsteps is not welcome here. They need to go to and they need to stay gone.
Paul Hubans definitely felt the effects of his post last night, when a ton of people the thought he was friends with in the industry just unfollowed him. But he also got a ton of support afterwards and gained over 1,000 followers.
