Andrew EisenI've left Iron Patriot's comments alone, not because of his viewpoints but because I don't see a need to take any action. I don't feel his comments warrant editing, removal or an outright ban of the account.05/30/2015 - 4:41pm
Goth_SkunkFinally, for the record, what Iron Patriot is doing is the textbook definition of harassment, not some conveniently re-defined term found on a college campus by a student employed to ensure tokenism is alive and well.05/30/2015 - 4:38pm
Goth_Skunkand addressed.05/30/2015 - 4:35pm
Goth_SkunkBut, if policy is properly adhered to, then the actions should stop. Hopefully voluntarily, or by force if necessary. Iron Patriot can dehumanize, mischaracterize, and take all the shots at me it wants, but it is harassment, and it needs to be recognized05/30/2015 - 4:35pm
Goth_SkunkIf nothing happens, as a result, then at least I point out the flaw of taking a stand against all harassment by revealing that it's okay to harass certain people when their viewpoints don't align with groupthink.05/30/2015 - 4:34pm
Goth_SkunkI figured, rather than keep taking it silently on the chin, as I have been, I instead should call it out, shine a big bright light on it, and loudly proclaim 'That's not okay. Stop it.'05/30/2015 - 4:33pm
Goth_Skunk@MechaCrash: While I am a proponent of growing a thicker skin, GamerGate has also opened my eyes to the widespread redefinition of harassment in an effort to stifle critical conversation. It shouldn't work, but it has been.05/30/2015 - 4:32pm
DocMelonheadPlus the constant Ad Hominem and Loaded Questions IP keeps on posting.05/30/2015 - 4:06pm
MattsworknameTo be honest, I think everyone gets worked up about there own personal causes, Ive done it to be sure. Ip just tends to do it all day everyday.05/30/2015 - 4:01pm
Andrew EisenNo problem. It's rarely an issue so it's not brought up much.05/30/2015 - 3:12pm
DocMelonheadsorry about that, it's just that it seems that IP wanted to make sure everyone knows that Gamergate were nothing but insecure harassers.05/30/2015 - 3:05pm
Andrew EisenFor instance, if everyone finds your comments annoying, try saying the same thing but in a different way. Who knows? Maybe a slight tweak in your approach to communicating will be all it takes to foster awesome and interesting discussions.05/30/2015 - 2:58pm
Andrew EisenDoc - I had to slightly edit a few of your comments. Please keep the heavier profanities out of the Shout box. And everyone, discussions are fine and dandy but do endeavor to keep things pleasant, okay?05/30/2015 - 2:51pm
DocMelonheadWhich is why I find him/her to be annoying as hell.05/30/2015 - 12:34pm
ConsterIP raises valid points sometimes, but they're drowned out by his "REPENT, SINNER!" attitude.05/30/2015 - 12:32pm
DocMelonheadOne of them were friend of those who got harassed by GameGate; another feel that GamerGate made it worst for people like her.05/30/2015 - 12:19pm
DocMelonheadI met several people at Boing Boing who have their own personal grude against them;05/30/2015 - 12:16pm
DocMelonheadSo, the question is this Iron Patriot, WHAT'S YOUR BEEF AGAINST GAMERGATE?05/30/2015 - 12:15pm
DocMelonheadThat's why many Anti-GG here see you as a JERK.05/30/2015 - 12:09pm
DocMelonheadSo in other words, You failed to keep a decent disscusion and proceed to talk down on those who argues against you.05/30/2015 - 12:08pm
