But I don’t think Anita’s focus or the focus of a lot of other women getting these threats or harassments is revenge or a legal battle. Its just asking for these things to stop. Similarly, the article isn’t asking folks to take up arms, but just embrace healthier online interactions.


Cool concept. i like little response games

I don’t know how these three things can exist in so many comments on this page

  1. I Don’t Like Her
  2. This Discussion of Harassment isn’t About Her (on a page about her being threatened out of her home)
  3. Let’s Be Objective About Our Discussion

In this case, seeking criticism and ethical discussions about this subject gets complicated that sources of gaming news and journalism are often inter-spliced with places of gaming community. Forums and commenters become major news relayers and industry commentators and similarly, most games journalists and even developers are very engaged with communities like NeoGAF or their studio/website forums.

So when people being harassed or harmed or attacked, it is hard to balance the desire for objectivity or in-depth criticism with the desire for social involvement or commentary or even disdain. A lot of people on the internet seem unable to approach long-form criticism and try to place it into one of two “camps” of opinion about an issue (which I see a lot of this vitriol and attack on Anita coming from). So with a damned if you do, damned if you don’t dilemna, they fall on the side of protecting people they like and admire in the community and no spaces is made for ethical talk that can’t just be relayed into a spirited social policy assumption.

As with most journalism, we’re gonna have to wait a while for the dust and hate to settle before people can step outside this and be objective.

Also, what is a sad excuse for a gamer?


We are capable of focusing solely on one issues and then approaching another issue. To reduce this discussion because there are other issues we could also address can be very frustrating.

Gungan, we could absolutely talk about that and you should totally make a Thread about it. But it does not mean we need to end this talk.

This is compiling a lot of more in-depth news stories. You could go there and to other opinion pieces for extra analysis
