I'll never understand why people feel the need to try and mess up other people's lives. Especially not people they don't actually know. It's just so fucking pointless and depressing.

Also after reading what happened with Quinn, I really don't understand how there's any discussion about who is in the wrong here at all. (I'm not talking about people here, by the way, but about the Quinn discussion as a whole.)

Everyone is.

How the hell are the majority of the reactions to this here about you not liking Phil Fish and not about the absolute human trash that does shit like this to people? Seriously guys?

Hmm, I've seen plenty of responses criticizing Phil, criticizing the people who'd react this way to him, and both.

@ectoplasma: Doing that risks getting the thread locked, and derailing it into being about someone else. Google "Quinnspiracy". And don't talk about it once you find out.

@corvak: You're not totally wrong, but not every game dev uses their public position to teach the public their values and moral code, then turns around and does something in contrast to that to show they are not living by it. Most game devs keep their private lives private, keep their beliefs to themselves, and just make awesome games.

@forkboy: Nowhere in that post do they say they support hacking someone and posting their personal information online. That people are assuming that's the kind of opposition they're arguing against in these kinds of discussions is exactly why they never go anywhere, and why everyone just gets more firmly entrenched on their 'side' of things.

Is it so hard to assume that everyone, even the people you disagree with, has some basic level of human decency/dignity and doesn't need to actively inform people that they aren't endorsing personal attacks, threats, and worse? At least until they've proven otherwise themselves?

THIS SO MUCH. You have said what I've kind of been trying to say in a better, shorter way of saying it.

So what's the deal with 5 guys? how does a burger place work into video game developer conspiracies?

Take your query to Google. The question has also been answered earlier in the thread.

I don't like Phil Fish but even I think he didn't deserve that.

@bollard: it's a quote from this blog from the ex-boyfriend of Zoe Quinn, whom she cheated on with 5 guys http://thezoepost.wordpress.com/

It's a way to say that Phil Phish was doxxed as a result of his support to Zoe

This is the first time I heard about this whole Zoe Quinn business. That's why I thought the actual Five Guys was referenced in the doxx and not this.

The moderators have been outright deleting any thread that mentions it for days now.

+1. I was modded lightning fast and warned not to bring it up. I tried to say people could be reasonable about discussing it if set up correctly, they did not agree. I am glad to see that since she's been brought up, there's been no call to brand her with a scarlet letter.

Thanks for that explanation, and I hope you don't get any over-eager moderation because of it. Sorry!

I wanted to save other people the same trouble, but after a couple cryptic warnings in here, I guess I may have made a mistake.

@spaceinsomniac: @icantbestopped: I'm sorry i didn't know it was not supposed to be posted. I discovered the whole thing today by chance and i haven't followed the forums during these days. I apologize, and i've edited out my previous post

You're not likely to be banned or anything. I was just warned, and have refrained from specifically talking about that incident since. I'm pretty sure this whole thread is going bye bye anyway. Just avoid talking about the woman from the incident, and any feelings you may have about specific staff's feelings about the incident.

Oh man this thread is going to get moderated or even deleted now I'm afraid, we are getting too close to the sun and are about to get burned, with the turn this thread is taking...

Yep.
