I can stop reading these articles I know. But eventually I might reconsider subscribing to this website.
I don't condone threats to anyone. To me it's not acceptable, and worst of all, is not a tactic that could ever be successful, even in a twisted mind. Death threats, harassment, pulling fire alarms at events you don't agree with. All evil and unnecessary.
But I'm not feeling welcome here, because I fundamentally disagree with what the people Patrick highlights are saying. It's only a highlight because they are on the "correct" side. People who support gamergate have been threatened, with violence or the loss of their job in the industry. And those are the people that for the most part don't have the press on their side.
We all want the same thing - good games we can enjoy. We also want to feel accepted for what we are. But one side of this "conflict" makes me feel like I'm evil for enjoying what I enjoy. And they offer no concession or relief. Even neutral people are pushed to one side or the other. That can't be healthy.
