This never hit me more then when I found out that the NoPat app I had heard about last year was still alive and well. If you don't know, NoPat is an app extension that censors out Patrick's content. It just recently received a 4 star review. It would have gotten a 5 but apparently Patrick's Alien: IsolationReview snuck through. I couldn't believe that these members of our community thought this was ok. You are allowed to have whatever feelings you want about Patrick, horror, hell even Aliens. But creating something like that even if you're allowed to is wrong.
I don't want to get into this argument over Patrick or anything but, why is this wrong? Some people do just not enjoy his content and would never give it the time of day. So having an app that just hides that stuff just makes it disappear. It's not like they are stealing from him in any way. They wouldn't be looking at it otherwise. Are you saying that if I go to this website I NEED to read/watch every bit of content Patrick puts out? In online forums/chats there are ignore functions. How is this any different?
With this GamerGate stuff the best thing you can do is ignore it. That's the best thing you can do with anything you disagree with. There's a reason people say, "Not to feed the trolls". It's because that works. You don't need a public denunciation from the Giant Bomb crew.
This whole post just screams, "They need to be told what to think". They're grown men, they can think/do what they want. It's not like any of them are going to come out and say, "You know what, I think threatening people is good. We should kill all women." Obviously they're against that. Stop trying to pull people into your personal vendetta.
