The United Federation of Charles was recently boycotted by the Gamergate movement (see Gamergate Wiki) for its comments made here. I take this as something of a source of pride as it means someone actually thought my site was worth boycotting. A former associate of mine, who I disagree strongly with over the issue, offered to see if he could get the boycott removed.
My opinion on the Gamergate issue remains unchanged. I don't think the spiel of ethics in journalism is worth an ounce of the time and effort they are putting into it while many horrible people are using it as code to attack female game developers.
The movement has come to symbolize the darker undercurrents of our hobby with individuals, particularly women, threatened by many members. I believe the vast majority of its adherents have never used anything other than harsh language. However, something about this movement has attracted the worst sort of people and if Gamergate wanted to make this hobby better, they'd focus on kicking these guys out.
That is all.
