So, what's the definition pro GG people are using for harassment? Myself I'd definitely say jumping enmass on anyone who disagrees with the movement is a form of harassment. Especially when those tweets or whatever are rude and sometimes downright accusatory.
As well as the act of searching through things like dating site profiles and job histories and trying to contact local police to prove someone never reported something.
These are all things I see people doing under the GamerGate hashtag, on the GamerGate discussion boards, and on the GamerGate git pages.
Does his not count as harassment somehow? I mean, these aren't deaththreats, but is rudely contacting someone and going through all their personal info you can find and spreading rumors and lies about them no long considered harassment?
The real shame here is that anyone who read those articles and then went to going GG is proving the point those articles were trying to make. We read you loud and clear, a vocal portion of the game community gets their feelings hurt very very easily and throw very large and dangerous fits if they don't feel very special. It's entitlement. Entitlement to have the industry be theirs instead of everyone's.
Exactly. GG is at best related to the death threats and transparently responsible for the harassment they're being accused of committing.
As a movement GG is actively targeting women.
Everyone else is just everyone else, looking on in horror at what's going on. There is no anti GamerGate. And no group everyone else belongs to that we're all part of. If GG gets harassment it really does suck, but trying to lump any opposition into a group is ludicrous. I don't have anyone to denounce, as I haven't joined anything. The only thing I've done is denounced GamerGate.
