      George Galloway deserved it though to be honest. I agree with some of the things he says but on the whole he's a loudmouth hypocrite. He also converted to Islam and won't admit it, just avoids the question. I don't care what religion he converted to, just the way he denies it is ridiculous.

        And to the surprise of no-one, Rock Paper Shotgun advocates Leigh Alexanders misandry.

        I'm sure there is some quote or other about becoming the evil you fight against which would be womderfully appropriate as a moto for them.

            It's unbelievable. Used to love pcg- gone to shit. Used to love RPS. Gone to shit. Im getting most my game news direct from the developers now (I'm on mailing lists) and twitter. Why go to a post-modern gaming site and be automatically labelled as the root of all evils? This whole thing is making me angry. The baisc position is correct- we shouldn't tolerate abuse, of ANY kind. Yet we're in a situation where our gaming journalists are more worried about showing us how clever they are than doing what they're there for- reporting on games.

              Don't get me wrong- want to expand people's horizons? Sure. Introduce us to new ways of ending and evaluating games? All for it. Occasionally shine a light on our own culture? Absolutely fine. On twitter yesterday I saw a journalist taking the piss out of gamers calling this whole debacle 'gamergate'. Insulting gamers by pointing out that the gate prefix usually refers to Those who were deemed to be in the wrong. Their words were to the effect of 'this is why gamers need journalists'. The heavy implication being that were all too stupid to exist without them.

                Well sorry fuck face, what we need are more reporters, not journalists. In fact, thinking about it, journalism is one of he biggest cancers on this fucking planet. We need LESS journalists not more. Reporters? People who report facts in an unbiased way? Sure- get as many as we can. Journalists who tell is what THEY think we should know? Go fuck your self.

                        I don't think there is anything wrong with promoting a certain view point as long as it is underpinned with facts and as realistically possible is objective etc.

                          But the message that these sites are increasingly putting out is that its perfectly acceptable to abuse men.

                                It was only a matter of time. In true tradition PCgamer about a week behind everyone else on the subject. http://www.pcgamer.com/2014/09/02/ov...assing-speech/
