No, GiantBomb was reasonably critiqued and then a bunch of entitled children started making death threats and hurling insults.

Well they were critiqued and then the people doing the critiquing took it to the next level with the "fuck you" comment. Then ass hats in the community went full shitlord and went down the whole rape, death threat thing.

Both sides were wrong, but the shitlords took it way way way to far.

That response came after the harassment started, actually.

Anybody with a basic understanding of math already knew everything you just said. Of course the metric system is better than the imperial system; there's no denying that. But we're so ingrained in the imperial system that changing to a metric system isn't simple at all. Think about it; does it make more sense to sell buy a gallon of milk, or a 128 fl oz of milk?

Ounces are Imperial. Why would you have such a hard time understanding what a liter of milk is? Hell, what I have a hard time keeping straight is the arbitrary foot-yard-mile, cup-pint-gallon nonsense.

I agree with Zevvion here, GiantBomb has been the target of unfair attacks, you can't simply expect people (the community) to react reasonably when their home/group/congregation/tribe/favorite_webpage/whatever is being targeted for no reason at all. It's the very simple principle of "talk shit, get hit".

You realize there are no women complaining about not being hired (for a job they didn't apply for), right? You realize there was no "sexist pig" accusation, right? You realize that a reasoned and respectful conversation was not the response that a bunch of privileged assholes decided to throw their way, yes?

If we converted to centipounds and kilopounds, why not make the full conversion to a more reasonable system? What is the upside of replacing the mile with 5.28 kilofeet? It's still so arbitrary. All for the sake of the three countries that still haven't converted...

Jeff definitely brings a more relaxed, matter-of-fact atmosphere to the podcast and live shows, but Vinny brings the enthusiasm and focus that Ryan (RIP) used to bring. It was probably my favorite Bombcast in a long time.

The irony of Penny Arcade criticizing a Kickstarter is rich.

It is not lost on me.

The Penny Arcade Report is not Penny Arcade though. At least not in any greater respect than Giant Bomb is Gamespot.

It's kind of amazing to me that this is legal.
