I don't want to start a new thread over this, but can we (as a community) get together and try to send some sort of nice gesture to Samantha Allen for the shit she went through today? Like some kind of thing to show our apology for a couple of dickheads that exist (from the forums and from 4chan)?
I hate how the people that are being blamed are the "Giant Bomb community" when I know that our community is filled with amazing generous people.
I completely disagree with her just about 100% of the time, but I feel truly sorry for what she had to go through today and I think the community can come up with something to show our condolences.
Fuck yeah, this. +1
Maybe this? Everyone could send her like a dollar to the same place? We'd only need like 20 people to do it. It's not much, but I would be pretty stoked if the internet bought me dinner. Although maybe 20 1 dollar certificates would be kind of a pain in the ass to use.
Edit: Ehh looks like its just a New York thing. Oh well.
