“We’re fucking game journalists. We don’t have to have standards. Nobody fucking cares. Nobody looks at us like we have a real career. Nice Master’s degree, right? Who gives a shit? We’ll write whatever the fuck we want.
We’ll call ourselves a blog when we get people flinging shit at us, but when we want a backroom conference or we want to interview somebody at Sony or get a demo kit or something sent over to us, then we’re suddenly fucking journalists, then we have integrity.
Hell at this rate, why not let our journalists financially support people too?
OH WAIT YOU ALREADY DO THAT DON’T YOU.”
“And all these other websites saying this is a non-issue? NeoGaf? This is a non-issue to you? This is all okay Neogaf? This is all okay. Financial, sexual, doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter, game journalists are a fucking joke right? Who cares? Let it be corrupt. What do we care? It’s~Just~Videogames~~~~. Aren’t you upset about FERGUSON? Why aren’t you paying attention to FERGUSON?? That seems to be the big dodge right now huh? Anything to not look behind the fucking curtain.”
“What Anonymous did was freak the fuck out. /v/ was like “we did NOT do this”; /pol/ was like “we did NOT do this”. I happened to be on the IRC chat at the time and they started to do their own investigative work to prove their innocence. First and foremost guess what they did?
They contacted the F.B.I. through their tip hotline and informed them of the hack.”
“Yes, they are doing it to spite Zoe Quinn for selfishly attempting to destroy the Fine Young Conservatives charity to promote her own Rebel Game Jam.
I’ll take spiteful charity over selfish sabotage any day, personally. Zoe Quinn is a parasite the face of gaming, begging people to give her money to do nothing while ruining people who actually want to help women become developers.
This is the difference between social justice and feminism. ‘Love ME, give ME, Burn all who don’t follow our ideals’ vs ‘Help others’.”
“”4chan is only doing it “win” against Zoe Quinn”
They’re just doing what hypocrites like Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian refuse to do, despite claiming to be all for women in gaming.
“Check the /pol/ board if you want to see what 4chan users are really like. Racist and misogynistic.”
Are you so desperate as to imply /pol/ is representative of 4chan as a whole, despite there being a rule that literally states “Keep /pol/ in /pol/”?”
“4chan has donated more than $18,000 to that project. They asked TFYC if they could chose the charity, they wanted to help victims of colon cancer, as a way to show simpathy to a known youtuber named totalbiscuit that’s fighting that same disease. 92% of the profits of the game will go to charity while 8% will go to the woman that gave the idea for the game.
4chan isn’t evil, they’re just misunderstood.”
“4chan is using TFYC as cover for a harassment campaing against indie developers and game journalists. In fact, the idea to support TFYC actually came from the openly racist and misogynistic/pol/ board. And TFYC itself is running a pretty shady business model.
Congratulations in getting tricked by these morons.”
“It’s a little sad how you’ve drank the koolaid. 4chan is contributing money to a charity that actually benefits women in videogames, not sleazy women who beg for donations to line their own pockets.
Anita: Give me money, so I can raise awareness and troll people on twitter!
Zoe: Give me money, so I can raise awareness and troll people on twitter! And I’ll OBLITERATE the Fine Young Capitalists for daring to try and move in on our turf!
Fine Young Capitalists: Give money to charity so female and trans developers can actually break into the gaming scene.”
“Wanna talk about being shady?Ask Zoe Quinn about having set up donations to a “Game Jam” with no date or place confirmed while all the donation money goes straight to her personal PayPal. Oh, by the way, this happened right after she crashed and burnt someone else’s project for a true Game Jam. Yeah, shady…”
“”And TFYC itself is running a pretty shady business model.”
GIVING 8% OF THE DONATIONS TO THE WINNER AND THE REST TO CHARITY SURE IS SHADY, AMIRITE?
The organizer has already stated they’re making no money off of this.”
“It’s ok, you can keep believing 4chan is some nasty boogeymen who hate women.
I suggest you go back to a Gawker site and stay within their bubble. We wouldn’t want to disappoint your predictable views.”
“DO NOT HACK THEM OR TAKE ANY INCRIMINATORY ACTION. LET’S NOT MAKE THIS LOOK LIKE A HACKER WAR BUT RATHER LIKE “THIS IS THE TRUE FACE OF FEMINAZIS”.
Show the world the true form of those corrupts piece of shits and they will crumble. THEY FEED FROM PEOPLE, if people refuse to feed them anymore then they’re done.
And for fuck’s sake /b/ don’t fuck up
“DO NOT BE DISTRACTED BY ANYTHING
WE MUST FOCUS ON EXPOSING THE HYPOCRISY
THIS IS ABOUT GAMES JOURNALISM
EYES ON THE PRIZE BOYS”
“REMINDER THAT THIS IS REALLY ABOUT THE SAD STATE OF GAMING JOURNALISM
REMINDER THAT THIS IS REALLY ABOUT NEPOTISM AND FEMALE PRIVILEGE IN THE GAMING INDUSTRY
REMINDER THAT THIS IS REALLY ABOUT HOW SJWs GANG UP AND SILENCE ANYONE WHO CALLS THEM OUT ON THEIR SHIT”
“This Vivian bullshit has hijacked the main point of the shit that started this mess.
We can’t let her (and her accomplices) get away with their lies, with their manipulation, with their victim-complex and most of all;
WITH THEIR TOTAL AND UTTER DISREGARD FOR ANYBODY THAT GETS CAUGHT IN THEIR CROSS-HAIRS, THEY DON’T CARE WHO THEY HURT OR MANIPULATE AS LONG AS THEIR LITTLE SJW CLUB IS STILL IN TACT.
DON’T BE FOOLS MY FRIENDS, DON’T GET DISTRACTED, THE MAIN GOAL AT HAND ISN’T A FUCKING SHIRT OR OUR NEWLY-FORMED DAUGHTERFU.”
“WE WERE ON THE CUSP OF CORRUPTION
TONS OF DEPRESSION QUEST ARTICLES WERE LINKED TO THE 5 GUYS
AND NOW WE’RE DISTRACTED BY JINGLING CAR KEYS”
“>Almost everyone donating to TFYC is from 4chan
>They post that they’re taking suggestions from 4chan
>People get pissed
STAY ON TARGET”
“> Mradder: Hello Broadcaster, please stop streaming non-gaming content. Twitch is exclusively for video games. Failure to comply will result in an account suspension.
WHO THE FUCK DOES THIS TURBO CUNT THINK HE IS?
THEN THE STREAM DIES.
JUST AS THEY WERE GETTING SCREENSHOTS
GO FOR KOTAKU
GO FOR IGN
GO FOR SHITTY JOURNALISTS”
“Well that’s enough reading of OP’s stuff.
Count me in.
What are we supposed to do?”
“There’s nothing the average /v/irgin can do except keep the train rolling until competent people do shit like the lawyerfags. Try and acquire evidence of shit practices”
“Spread the Patricia Hernandez shit. There’s a risk Kotaku will just try to avoid that question. They only answered the Grayson issue because the shitstorm was so great.”
“Unless you have a particular set of skills…just keep posting. Make jokes, spread the word. The people with the know-how to figure this shit out will do so, but they’re nothing without an audience to laugh and spread it around. So that’s our job.”
“Daily reminder if we had old /b/
The Final Boss of the Internet
The Internet Hate Machine
Pages would have been hacked, private info would have been posted implicating their incestuous industry, and we could have all gone back to our video games within 24 hours.
Now all we’ve got is fucking google.”
“Hacking and doxxing would (and has) gotten us no where, they just shout “THEY’RE HACKING ME, THEY’RE HACKING ME” and they instantly have more ammo.”
“You’re literally retarded. We don’t need more hate towards us. We already got blamed of hacking WHEN we didn’t do it.
This way is much more refined and actually brings out the hypocrisy on them. They can’t cry wolf anymore.”
>take down kotaku, take down RPS, take down everything
>1 month later nothing changes, 4chan is written as the bad guy
>create critical proofs with actual reasoning.
>dig in and find the depth of all the shit
>if we win, 4chan is known as the spearhead that liberated gaming
Think, son. Think.”
“Guys, I think it’s time to face facts: NOTHING new has really happened in the last 24 hours. No new info, no new videos, nothing.
If we hit the 48 hour mark with no real movement, this shit is officially dead in the water. If anyone has any bright ideas or plans, now would be the time to enact them, because this shit is on fucking life-support at this point.”
“No shills allowed.”
“shut the fuck up, shill. you’ve been doing nothing but bombarding threads with negativity in an attempt to derail, even when progress was actively being made. piss off”
“Again: Too much was found too fast. Momentum has died down, but can pick up again as soon as a new discovery is made. If this dies entirely, then the next one will be even bigger, and even harder to hide. Look objectively onto our last big shitstorms. Look at how much smaller they are in comparison to this one.”
“If anons can survive a week without fapping, they can survive a week without any responses from Zoe or huge new developments.
We have a shit ton of information and we can still find shit tons more, if anything /v/ needs to be more like /pol/ in figuring out what the information means RELATIVE TO OTHER INFORMATION other than just holyshit.jpg hype all the time. Which is fine, that sort of stuff is needed to spread the message.
But we still have to think about what’s going on and how to react to what we see. Just like in vidya.”
“It is time to do YOUR part, anon. A lot of us have been engaged in the many articles, publications, videos, tweets etc engaging in debates and showing our proof. It has been working slowly, but we are getting people to warm up to our cause.
This isn’t only about happenings, but also of actively convincing people, and we need all the manpower we can muster for that task.
Do what you can, no matter how small your contribution might be. Just posting here will do no good.”
“What is seriously with these people?
>”Clearly, they are all virgins”
>”Clearly, they are all fat”
>”Clearly, they are all neckbeards”
>”Clearly, they are all nerds”
>”Clearly, they are all basement dwellers”
For fucks sake don’t these trust fund babies have any new material? They sound like that one annoying kid we’ve all known who just discovered weed yesterday and has to tell everyone ALL ABOUT WEED and get up on a high horse about it…
…except for these fragile fuckers, it’s sex. They finally got to fuck some 5 to 7 rated groupie twats yesterday and now “NEENER NEENER LOOK AT ALL U VIRGINZ”
Yeah bro, we’re all kinds of happy for you that you got to swing your pencil dick around inside an un-Kegel’d vagina. Good job by you.”
“why do they discriminate against the potentially asexual/socially awkward?
why do they discriminate against the overweight/disabled?
why do they discriminate against people with genetics?
why do they discriminate against people with interests?
why do they discriminate against people with low income?
SJWs are terrible”
“Because it’s still more than what they have.
The asexual/socially awkward crowd has free time to develop skills and abilities that they would not otherwise have.
The overweight/disabled, because they either accepted their lot in life, or because they have the audacity to keep trying despite failing miserably.
People with genetics, if genetic illnesses, it’s because they “lucked out” and have a much more legitimate reason to go out and protest, if they actually cared to. In terms of neckbeard from the post you responded to, because they’re different and there are implications of the previous two.
In terms of people with interests, it’s because the people who actually care about their hobbies actually do stuff about it. They learn, they adapt, they modify and tweak, making sure that they know exactly what they’re talking about to ensure clarity. If you haven’t noticed what those faggots have done to sex, gender, things that were once crystal clear and synonyms for each other have become obfuscated as fuck.
For low income, they don’t know what it’s like to be poor. They don’t know what it’s like to live off of 2k a year because you just don’t have the finances. Because people won’t give you that chance. Or just because you live in a fucking economic dead zone and you can’t afford to do anything else. And despite this, keep going, in a number of cases, not reliant on government aid.”
“So this blog I check every now and then discussed the Tim Schafer/JonTron thing.
They said that Jon was a misogynist asshole for arguing with Tim, and for disagreeing with Anita’s videos.
The amount of Tumblr faggots who were agreeing and saying “LOL JONTRON WHAT A JERK AM I RIGHT” is staggering but expected, but this one guy, this one blog, I just can’t handle because I used to respect the guy running it so much.
Why does it have to be this way? Why is this SJW disease infecting people I have respect for, and why is there no end in sight? Why is this becoming the new norm for people?
I’m going to play video games to end my depression, maybe that will help.”
“There are no videogames left to play”
It’s saddening to see all those people or websites you care about go the SJW way. Is this how people feel in a civil war?
What saddens me the most is that this whole clusterfuck is concerning the indie scene ONLY
What about the AAA? How bad is it there and how difficult will it be to deroot?”
“It will pass. I felt this way at the beginning of all this beacuse I didn’t pay much attention to these people personally but it’s exposing so many fucking terrible idiots as hypocritical drones that I’m happy to dump them all into the trash. We shouldn’t negotiate with terrorists either.”
“It’s not becoming “the new norm for people”. It’s becoming the new norm for stupid fucking nerds/hipsters.
The general public don’t care about this shit; the average woman on the street thinks they have pretty equal rights besides some real issues like Gay Marriage/Aboriton, they don’t care about women in fucking video games.
Notice how almost all of the SJWs have to have ugly ass colored hair, piercings, tattoos or “LE GEKE GURL” stuff. These aren’t average people, they’re just a disgusting subculture of nerds.”
they decided to “bully the bullies”, to “intolerance of intolerance”, without thinking it through
basically, it’s the mob mentality, it’s guilty until proven innocent (there’s no such thing as innocent when you’re on their target), they think only them are right, and anyone else who disagrees with them must be shut down
this is feminism, this is SJWs, this is
“My brothers and sisters of 4chan.
We need but three things:
We must know what has happened.
We must have a reason for the events that have transpired.
We will target those responsible and bring them to light and avenge Vivian James.
We do it for her.”
“I can’t do it guys. I can’t read any more tweets and posts by people who are blatantly trying to silence discussion and insist that they’re right and anyone who disagrees is a bigot. I can’t take any more, my blood pressure is going to skyrocket.
Why do people like them exist”
“Hang in there anon, we can play video games when we win”
“Because people exist anon.”
“Because in the last twenty years kids have been taught shit: “your feelings are first” “none is right or wrong” etc.
Everything is handed to them, even their moral and ethics.”
“I cringe when I think about seeing George Carlin apologize on twitter. That keeps me going.”
“Whether or not TYFC is a scam, it’s not the point of what’s going on. TYFC is a shield that 4chan bought and paid for so that video game “journalists” couldn’t dismiss us as hateful sexists. That was the ONLY point to donating to TFYC.
This isn’t about Zoe, this isn’t about TFYC, this is about the corruption in journalism. That’s it.”
“Remember kids how to spot a SJW shill.
>WHY ARENT YOU TALKING ABOUT -insert other topic- INSTEAD
>Resorts to braking you as a person by insulting and berating you
>ITS JUST VIDEO GAMES
>SOMEONE JUST SLEPT WITH SOMEONE SO WHAT

>JUST GIVE UP NO ONE WILL REMEMBER IN A MONTH
>YOULL JUST FEEL STUPID LATER
>CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME

Its a battle of wills and were kicking ass and taking names.”
“In Russian GRU there are 12 departments. Some are responsible for surveillance in NATO countries, some are responsible for high-tech espionage and so on.
Department 12 is responsible for nuclear weapons (including prevention of nuclear proliferation), and INFORMATIONAL WARFARE.
Let that sink in.
Informational warfare is on the same scale of importance as fucking nuclear weapons. E.g. capable of changing course of history. Don’t stop this fight, let that bitch drown in her lies, and continue to dig deeper.”
“IT’S BAD! IT’S WORSE THAN BAD, THE WORLD IS GOING CRAZY. SO WE DON’T PLAY GAMES ANYMORE. WE SIT ON /v/ AND THE WORLD IS GETTING SMALLER AND WE SAY “PLEASE AT LEAST LET ME BE ALONE ON MY CONTAINMENT BOARD. LET ME HAVE MY KATAWA SHOUJO THREADS AND MY CONSOLE WARS AND MY JAPAN TIME! I WON’T SAY ANYTHING! JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!”
Well I’m not going to leave you alone. I want you to get MAD.”
“Daily reminder that anyone posting any variation of “it’s over” is a shill.
We’ve dealt with this for years at /pol/. It’s basically shilling 101, attempting to cut the steam out of a movement in its infancy.
Either ignore the post, or reply “this is a shill, disregard”. Anything else helps them.
“It used to be completely impossible to take down SJWs and their corruption.
Now it’s only extremely difficult.”
“What you’re “supposed” to believe depends on the power balance.
Currently we are disrupting the power balance.
You won’t know what you’re “supposed” to believe for a while.”
“You awoke and unleashed
The fire in my heart,
I will dance and I’ll defeat them,
Through the light and the dark!
