Yeah, cool story bro, but instead of pretending you're a great moderator to the zero people listening to you on Twitter, how about you actually do your job and get rid of this twat 'ARumFellow' who's making inappropriate comments about another commenters children being raped, sound like a good idea to you, or are his comments justified in your mind because he's one of your SJW cronies? Smh...

Edit: I just found an awesome article about MrTom :) https://supernerdland.com/shouting-void-hang-moderators/

@illage2 You're correct, of course, but don't be surprised if your comment disappears. Anyone who mentions the fact that Quinn & her cronies are doxxers has had their messages removed as MrTom & Eurogamer seem to support doxxing. Those who have dared to bring it up have been accused by EG staff of "witch hunting" :/

@ARumFellow
I'm wondering why you shit your britches about someone releasing a game when you believe in free speech. It's not like you want to CENSOR free speech, do you?!?!
Strawman. Please point me to any comment I've made expressing that I want Quinn's game censored or I want to stop her releasing it. I don't think you'll find any comments like that coming from me. Also, You've made 50+ comments here, none of which actually have any real point. Why bother if all you have to add is ridiculous strawmen and inappropriate comments about peoples kids being raped? Are you one of MrToms alt accounts or something, just trying to add a few extra clicks or?

@ARumFellow That doesn't even make sense, kid, also, I'm wondering why you seem to shit your britches and get triggered every time someone has something negative to say about MrTom? He's quite capable of defending himself (or just deleting any dissenting opinions which as we can see is his preferred technique) lol :lol:

@HappyGator Yeah, honestly though I just feel kinda sorry for the guy, I think he actually views being a moderator on a subpar gaming site as some sort of way to exert "power" over those who commit the crime of wrong-think, rather than seeing it for what it is (i.e. he's an unpaid lackey who's actually supposed to be here to facilitate civil discussion, I don't think he realizes this though, if he actually did his job properly he'd have to ban himself) lol :lol:

@ARumFellow Erm, reporting a legitimate criminal to the police isn't the same as publicly doxxing people simply because you don't share the same world view or political stance... xD

To answer your question, yes I support reporting criminals who incite or threaten violence to the police.

@Kitano123 Yeah, I mean, personally I can't say I had any involvement in gamer gate, I read about it, I had my opinions, but I wasn't involved any further than that, but yeah, anyone doxxing anyone else (and anyone supporting those doxxers)is a complete cunt in my book, It doesn't matter what "side" they're on or whatever else, doxxing someone could potentially ruin their life, which is why I don't understand how anyone can support it, like MrTom has indicated he does...

No guys, it's OK. I understand it's not GG who dox people. Zoe Quinn and her friends are the REAL harassers. *wink* Did I do that right?

The above is quoted from MrTom's Twitter. Why does he seem to think that one side allegedly harassing & doxxing automatically precludes the other side from acting in the exact same manner? Surely anyone caught out doing those things should be strongly criticized, right Tom? Or are you just going to delete this question again?

Speaking is conversation manipulation.
The word 'manipulate' has more than one meaning. It could mean "to handle in a skilful manner" but it could also mean "to control or influence unscrupulously", in case you weren't sure, I was using the latter definition.

@averraiher Yep, he did the same to all of us, and not one of the comments he deleted had a single insult, threat, or any other toxic value to them, they were simply comments calling out people who doxx, harass & threaten, but it seems Eurogamer is now pro all of the above as they silence anyone who dares even mention it....

Lol, looks like MrTomFTW just deleted all comments disagreeing with him, oh dear, this site really has fallen to shit. Look guys, if you want an echo chamber, your very own Eruo'SafeSpace'gamer, so be it, but honestly, it's a really sad state of affairs when opposing opinions frighten you to such a degree that you must silence them. Seriously guys, really, really poor show.

I'd like to ask MrTomFTW, do you, or do you not support Zoe Quinn's organization doxxing and harassing people? You've been asked this a couple of times now but you seem unable to answer. Your silence on the issue and the fact that you delete any comment that mentions it would strongly indicate that you do indeed support doxxing.

Of course, nobody can force you to speak honestly, but I just wonder how EG feel about having a moderator on their team who is seemingly in favour of putting people irl danger of violence? It really doesn't reflect well on them. If any staff member would like to step in and answer that would be great? I won't hold my breath though obviously, but I think it's of genuine concern if your company is supportive of this.

@MrTomFTW The deleted comment in no way tried to justify any harassment aimed at Quinn, maybe it'd be intelligent not to make assumptions like that unless you actually saw the comment in question.

Bethesda's anti-consumer review policy comes as no surprise

@man.the.king

This does feel a bit like Karma, doesn't it? :)
Indeed, and it's quite well known that behind closed doors, developers often have a pretty seething dislike for the gaming press. I like to think that back in the day the gaming press used to actually be part of a supportive 'gaming culture', now days though we get sites like EG who feel the need to infuse their articles with irrelevant identity politics and other nonsense to 'shame' devs and gamers alike. Honestly, I'm not surprised devs are starting to turn against them.

To be honest, I don't think EG actually care about the fact that review embargoes are anti-consumer. They care because if other companies follow Bethesta's example it'll put the gaming press out of business with pretty much immediate effect.

I think all those "gamers are dead" articles a year or two back were rather anti-consumer, funny how EG didn't seem to care about that though, just sayin'...

The "content" on Twitter is the exact reason I do not have an account, You don't need an account to be able to read twitter discussions... Jeez, you're really not the smartest guy, are you?

I also had no involvement in 'gamer gate', hence being called a gator by some SJW Tumblrina who's into cat videos literally means nothing to me. Although from what I hear it seems gamer gate got some bent websites to change their ethics/disclosure policies, among other things, sounds like a positive to me.

No the disclaimer is there to ensure fuckwits in the "alt-right" don't co-opt the themes for their own use.
The protagonist is black, the game is *clearly* pro black, you spend your time splattering white racist characters, with that in mind, please do explain how this game is going to be "co-opted" by the alt right?

The devs understand that racism is a very real issue today. That racism is a real problem among gamers.
Racism is a problem within society, I've seen no evidence that racism is more prominent among gamers than in any other sect of society, sure, Xbox Live has issues, but it's no worse than other (non-gamer related) semi-anonymous spaces on the internet. So again with that in mind, why does this game need a disclaimer but movies and literature seemingly do not?

The disclaimer is there so that stupid racist fucks don't use the game to support their own primitive world view.
Seriously, this makes you sound unbelievably dim, this is a game where you take the role of a black veteran who *kills* racists (among other people). How the hell is a "racist fuck" going to use this to support their world view, you're in fairy land.

Really? Find me evidence that Hangar 13 were scared to do this
It is self-evident. If you don't acknowledge the 'stepping on eggshell' climate creatives are facing these days then you're either willfully lying to yourself or you're not too sharp. As someone who's worked in the industry for over a decade, I can tell you it's palpable. The funny thing is, behind closed doors, the majority of devs I've spoken to cannot stand people like you, but they tend not to speak out because their jobs could be threatened or their businesses damaged.

what the fuck have you done to contribute to this world in any way?
I'm not sure what the relevance of this question is? Let's say I donated more to Cancer Research than you, would that make my argument automatically more valid than yours? No, I didn't think so. Getting into an internet argument about "who is the more virtuous being" is about the most cripplingly stupid thing I think we could do here, but I guess it's something I should have expected from someone who's whole argument basically boils down to one long virtue signaling diatribe...

(Edit: Just noticed you're subscribed to both Anita Sarkeesian & Jim Sterling, yeah I doubt we're going to agree on much, maybe instead of commenting here you should get back to playing your favorite game, ChronoTriggerWarning, or perhaps some DeadSafeSpace, or maybe #KillAllMen of Valor, lol xD)

@VibratingDonkey It's not a "description", it's a disclaimer, they're not the same thing, and it's a clear insult to the intelligence of the games audience (of course you must possess some level of intelligence to realise it's being insulted, hence you not really seeing a problem here).

It's really depressing that developers feel a need to use a disclaimer like this, there's no other medium where this would be necessary, but again it comes down to this 'stepping on eggshell' social climate surrounding the games industry created by people like Anita Sarkeesian and websites like Eurogamer.

Basically the devs understand that the SJW PC-brigade are too cretinous to work out that MafiaIII is a story based game and the views espoused by certain in-game characters are not the views of the games creators...smh

Don't people understand that this is really bad? We have creatives who're literally scared to tell a story without a ridiculous disclaimer because they fear a backlash from people who aren't bright enough to tie their own shoe laces. Good Job SJWs, you're really making the world a much better place.

Steam dumps developer for being "hostile" to customers

Everyone involved in this situation is at fault in one way or another.

Digital Homicide handled criticism (and their business) extremely childishly, on the other hand, in cases where criticism turned to death threats Steam should have stepped in to moderate, but they didn't.

As for Jim Sterling, well, yeah, he's a seemingly talentless car crash of a man who makes his living by mocking teenage bedroom coders and inciting his mob of cretinous followers to harass anyone who's created something he deems unworthy of Steam Greenlight. (Yes, yes he made a faux disclaimer video asking his fanboys not to harass anyone, but that was obviously just to cover his own arse and hasn't made a spot of difference).

According to The Verge the poll you're citing can't be used to accurately measure anything as people were called on the phone and asked simply if they 'have' a console. They were not asked which member of the family actually owns or uses the console.

http://www.theverge.com/2015/11/4/9670524/pew-survey-women-men-console-ownership-by-gender-2015

May I ask you, do you honestly believe that females spend more on consoles and console games than males do? (and we're talking about buying it for themselves, not for their kids, etc)


Edit:

"What you don't seem to realise is people who like digital dick & boobs are the size 12 shoe men, the average person doesn't want nudity or sexualization in their game at all."

Again, do you honestly believe that? I mean sure, those who want digital dick are probably a minority, but I think it's pretty obvious that sex sells, just look at Hollywood (or any other industry) for an example of that.

@grassyknoll Well, I'm sure that if women and/or gay guys became the main consumers of console/PC games then their wishes would be taken into account far more often.

But think of it like this, you're a cross-dressing guy with size 12 feet. Do you think that all ladies shoe shops should have to stock size 12 stilettos just to accommodate you? Or is it more realistic to realise that you're in a minority and hence the majority of ladies shoe shops might not cater specifically to your needs?

Sure, it may seem unfair if you happen to be a cross dressing male or a woman with really big feet but It's not done out of hatred or bigotry, it's just supply and demand, and it's the same with any market, including the games market.
