The Minor Character

Why does this make me feel so uncomfortable? I would never decide which one to use. Do. Not. Like.

I’d be that guy who flushes the toilet to watch all of the TP go down in one shot. The place would be flooded, yeah, but don’t tell me that wouldn’t be worth it.

HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT.

Zoe “Social Justice Rogue” Quinn has been lurking in 4Chan’s raiding IRC channels the last couple of weeks, gathering chat logs.

Turns out, the ENTIRETY of #GamerGate was completely manufactured by 4channers, and they played EVERYONE that joined in on the #GamerGate tag and the #NotMyShield tag. Everyone. None of it was true.

Favorite tweet from this? 

I make video games, did y’all really think I didn’t know how the internet works?

lmao

Welp.

Forgive me for doubting this, but considering that Zoe has shown to be a pathological liar, I’m gonna have to doubt the significance of most of these tweets.

That was a public IRC. Anyone could be in it. How much of it is true and how much of it was cherry-picked bullshit or bait that she and others planted? I’m gonna get to the bottom of this.

Honestly, believing Zoe at this point is just ridiculous. Not to mention /v/ would be tearing its fucking hair out because of this. Go on the most recent thread…nobody fucking cares because it’s irrelevant. Most of those posts? 

And that doesn’t mean that all of a sudden Zoe or any of the other journalists are innocent or that the people on #GamerGate of #NotYourShield haven’t been harassed or not sick of SJWs.

So as it turns out, doing a bit of research does help! Here is a pastebin:

2a. Does 4Chan disclaim any of them as shills?

Anyone who suggests any sort of violence, or (in the past two weeks) any sort of action related to Zoe Quinn is labeled a shill almost immediately. This hasn’t been about them for a good while now and anyone trying to divert attention back to them is turned on.

3. Is 4Chan willing and able to provide complete (unedited) logs of any or all of the IRC chat rooms that Quinn has posted excerpts from?

4. Do any members of 4Chan wish to make a statement about Quinn’s latest allegation?

http://pastebin.com/jTMS9yEm

4a. What are the objectives that members of 4Chan have with regards to its involvement in #GamerGate?

We want the same thing as the entirety of #GamerGate - less clickbation sensationalism, a step up in terms of journalistic integrity and transparency of their reporting. 

4b. Does the 4Chan community believe that social justice activists, feminists, leftists, progressives, or other factions are pernicious influences on gaming? If so, why? 

Not in the slightest. We believe that the radical portion of any movement is pernicious to any aspect it relates to. Any activist who debates using logic and reason, and isn’t blinded by their views is a positive force.

4c. Does the 4Chan community believe that abuse and harassment are legitimate tactics to achieving its objectives?

Absolutely not. People posting suggestions of even tangential harassment are very quickly turned on. Civility is constantly encouraged, but is impossible to enforce. Due to the nature of 4chan anyone can come and post anything vulgar or offensive.

5. Is it true that 4Chan has prepared a blacklist of websites that it is urging people not to patronize? 

Rather than a blacklist, a whitelist has been circulating around, namely this: http://i.imgur.com/IfUnIiz.png

5a. If so, what is the criteria for this list?

Sites that portrayed #GamerGate as mysoginistic as well as sites that were part of the “gamers are dead” campaign are the bulk of it. In general, all sites that do not show or enforce journalistic integrity within their ranks are ill-favored. Numerous examples of hipocritical statements .

6. Do any members of 4Chan wish to make a statement about allegations that they have abused and harassed Zoe Quinn or others?

7. Anything I missed?

Not a single website that has been suspected of nepotism and corruption has even mentioned The Fine Young Capitalist (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-fine-young-capitalists—2).

I, myself, can vouch for 4chan. Anyone who promotes violence to Zoe i immediately told to shut the fuck up, accused of being a shill, or told to fuck off.

In fact, here, have a log of the entire thing

It’s an interesting read. Trust me. Of course there are going to be dumbasses acting like dumbasses. That’s the public, after all. If they had anything to hide, they wouldn’t do it in public.

Oh, as it turns out, here’s more reasons why not to believe Zoe!

All that shit? Took like five minutes of Google search.

SJWs proving how gullible they are on this site. It’s hilarious!

Welp, now she’s really showing how psycho her tactics are

"College as explained to me in high school" vs. "College as experienced firsthand"
In high school they told us: There will be no grades in a class except the midterm and the final, so you have to study hard because failing one test means you fail the class.
Once I was in college a professor said: Hey, you guys are working really hard on your third paper, so I'm just going to cancel the final and give everyone a hundred on it.
In high school they told us: In college, class always begins exactly at the scheduled start time. If your class is at 9 AM and you get there at 9:01, the doors will be locked and you'll be out of luck, especially if it's the day of the midterm or final, because then you get a zero.
Once I was in college a professor said: Does anyone mind if I start class at 3:35 instead of 3:30? These elevators are really slow and I want to have time for a cigarette before I teach for 90 minutes.
In high school they told us: Every class you miss drops you a full letter grade in college courses.
Once I was in college almost every professor said: You can miss three classes without a penalty, and a few more if you have a Doctor's note. Sorry to be a hardass, but you automatically fail if you miss more than ten days of class.
In high school they told us: If you do have papers, your professors just lecture and put the assignments on the syllabus. You're completely responsible for remembering the deadlines, they won't remind you. All your professors will do is lecture and the rest is up to you.
Once I was in college a professor said: Okay, so your next paper is in two weeks! I'll keep reminding you in the interim, but I just want to make sure you have enough time to do it! Let's run through the structure I want to see real quick, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or come to my office hours!
In high school they told us: You have to use MLA formatting and if you make any mistakes in your citations, it'll be considered plagiarism. You'll be expelled and probably sued.
Once I was in college almost every professor said: Please do not use MLA, it is awful, we use either APA or Chicago here because we are not 14 years old.
In high school they told me: There is no excuse for an absence. NONE.
In college I called a professor and said: I'm really, really, really sorry but it's -18 before windchill and I have to walk two miles to get to class.
The professor said: You stay inside and stay safe. Here's what we're reading today. I'll quiz you next week and if you can get a 90% I'll mark you present. I know you live off-campus, do you have food?
In high school they told me: Your advisor is just for academia, not personal problems.
In college my advisor called me: Are you okay? I haven't seen you in class in two weeks and I know you have depression. I can drop off your work if you'd like. Please call me and tell me how you're doing even if you can't get to class.
In high school they told me: Don't argue. You think this is bad, wait til college.
In college all but one of my professors said: You wanna argue, do it in a civil manner. We didn't get here today without 5000 years of healthy debate.

Let’s be clear here: Martin Luther King did not live and die so that the grandsons and granddaughters of the Civil Rights revolution might seek justice violently; We don’t have to do that.

Cornell William Brooks, NAACP National President, in light of the Michael Brown murder

—————————————————————————————————

I just heard this on CNN, and I think this is important to remember, especially for some people on tumblr. When we say “hate breeds hate” and “don’t fight fire with fire” we aren’t “silencing the grievances of the oppressed”, we’re saying that it’s foolish to act as if inciting the same vitriol and aggressiveness as the people you claim to be against will solve anything, because it solves nothing. 

Be constructive in your arguments and actions, be logical, be level-headed, and people will take you seriously. 

Being unapologetically bitter and conceited will only make the people you’re advocating against feel justified in their actions, and when others see that you’re acting just like your opponents they won’t see the point of siding with you.
