Keep up the great work you're doing amazing to help fix the void left by the past years events and I wish you all the best but I can't keep supporting a website that went media silent on the ZoeQuinn stuff

bwadshoemaker:

Oh gee, thanks! That’s really kind of you to… oh.

THIS ASK IS A FUCKING ROLLERCOASTER 

natellite:

female sexuality is a rigged game and the fact that you’re out there helping the MRAs who want to drive women out of the industry is disgraceful. who are you trying to impress? you think if it was you up there, the men would be pulling their punches because you helped them take out Zoe Quinn, Queen Whore? read a fucking book.

natellite:

i’ll go ahead and answer my question for you: the reason that this matters to you is because you’ve created a false distinction in your head between yourself and those bad, evil, dirty girls who pose nude and do porn. with the utmost of respect, i suggest that you grow up and go to church, lol.

patrickklepek:

You want me to walk into a minefield? OK. Let’s try to keep this short.

There are numerous angles to what’s unfolded over the last few days, and I’m not going to address all of them. Please keep that in mind here.

This has turned into TMZ. For just about all of this, it’s not our business.

There’s no excuse for the extreme  harassment and abuse in the last few days. No one deserves to have nude pictures of themselves distributed all over the Internet without their consent. No one deserves to have their address blasted on social networks as a veiled threat. No one.

There is no excuse. None, nada.

Some people see a conspiracy. Others see common human decency.

What we have is an ugly corner of the gaming community exploiting an opportunity to tear into a situation with the flimsiest of justifications. The idea that such abuse is warranted because of concerns over the “ethics of games journalism” cannot be taken seriously by people who utter “whore,” “cunt,” “faggot,” and other words in the same sentence. A quick perusal of “zoe quinn” on Twitter will find you plenty of these people.

A response to that line of criticism might be “yeah, but…

There is a universe where a blog was written specifically to raise ethical concerns about personal relationships between the games press, and not a character assassination meant to tear a person’s life apart.

We do not live in that world. Do not try to pretend that’s what this about.

However.

Disclosure is important. Kotaku editor Stephen Totilo addressed this specifically on Twitter, given his reporter and publication are in question:

Nathan Grayson never wrote a review of Depression Quest for Kotaku. He did write about the indie game jam that went to pieces, which happened to involve Zoe Quinn. Numerous publications also wrote about the same incident, and nothing in Grayson’s write up is particularly different from what you would find elsewhere. On Rock Paper Shotgun, Grayson mentioned Depression Quest in a writeup about 49 other video games that were recently greenlit on Steam. Another mention of Depression Quest was published on RPS written by Adam Smith. You can verify this through the Depression Quest tag.

Yes, disclosure is important. Yes, we should be aware if the press has engaged in a personal relationship with a developer. But nothing justifies what’s transpired since. People have hijacked this for madness.

Cliche but true: some just want to watch the world burn.

Given I’ve spent the last few days trying to ignore folks accusing me of cheating on my wife, you’ll excuse me if I’m over talking about this now.

This is the last I’ll say on this topic. No other questions will be answered.

today id like to share with you what my cat does on mornings where there’s no sun

Because I don't live in FERGUSON. So, we are given the packages by our main media and we just post what we are given, title and all, also i have no control over how they title it on air. >:C So MEH. idk i get what you're saying but just wanted to say i have no control. uppers do

o…ok????

edit: that was a short response but im not sure what to say to this. im not sure what this has to do with ‘what the fuck do you expect them to write’

Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders was delighted to learn about the work of Buckinghamshire, England-based illustrator Chloe Giordano, who uses freehand embroidery to create incredibly small, yet finely detailed depictions of animals.

The final works of a sleeping fawn or mouse are scarcely larger than the size of a thimble, yet can take long periods of time to complete as she mixes myriad thread colors to achieve perfection for each piece.

In addition to wonderfully wee embroidered pieces like those pictured here, Giordano also creates 3D sculptures. You can keep up with all of Chloe Giordano’s artwork right here on Tumblr at karenin. She’s currently available for comission-based work as well.
