Zoe Quinn blows #GamerGate wide open.
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?
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?
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.
All that shit? Took like five minutes of Google search.
SJWs proving how gullible they are on this site. It’s hilarious!
