Unless the comments from people defending gamersgate has been moderated and taken away from this thread. The people who you are calling defenders of GamersGate are people who said Gamersgate is a mess and that there is no side to take and then started to discuss the morals and ethics of the initial events.
Pro Gamersgate, Anti Gamersgate the points made by either camp all of it has been lost and now it is just a ball of hate, any legitimate ethical questions,critiques or discussion has been destroyed. As the Gamersgate banner is no longer about any of this is it is about abuse, the point has been hijacked by people who wanted to be despicable.
So understand devourer the topic you discuss saying Gamersgate is not the same as what other people discuss, the meaning has changed. Unless they come out and say a bunch of sexist or hate speech crap, then they are discussing the ethics and critiques of what was the first point whether it be originally a shallow point to cover up another agenda (E.G a reason to abuse people) or if there is legitimate claims to points raised.
You Devoureroftime are discussing this useage of Gamersgate the title to explain the un defendable hate filled death threats and doxing of people whose hould not have to face such things.
The people I see you arguing with are wanting to discuss the ethical and moral side of game journalism BEFORE the abuse set in.
There is two events linked to Gamersgate Abuse and Ethical talks on journalism. Yet everyone uses Gamersgate to mean something else from what others mean.
Gamersgate the word is just as big a mess as is the events behind the word and no one has came up with a second word to help ease the tensions everyone who cares for peoples well beings and right to live unhindered from fighting each other.
