Well, if you don't have the guts to show up and defend your dishonesty, call in a bomb threat.

I wonder how the media will spin this.

Let's not jump the gun here. There's third-party trolls (some apparently with a hard-on for GG) that could have done it for teh lulz just as well.

Women and people sexist against men do pretty frequently terrorize events like this though. So its not really jumping the gun more of the default obvious position.

Nope. It had to come from aGG. If we use their logic, even uninitiaed and unaffiliated GGrs are still GGrs. Like the fake Anna threats? Came from some 4channer that doesn't give a fuck, but they're automatically affiliated with GG whether they give two shits or not.

  1. No the media hates Gamergate, this has been fairly consistent. IF it get reported on it will be Gamergates fault

  2. If Gamergate has to claim their trolls so does everyone else

My question was answered in an GGHQ thread on 8chan:

Bomb threats closed down a debate on the controversial topic of women’s representation in video games at a Society of Professional Journalists event in Miami on Saturday.

God fucking dammit ...but not really surprised.

I'm not sure if this article counts as spin due to the fact that it was corrected a short moment later. Still, whoever knows whats what needs to call out inaccuracies as well as promote better articles.

edit: link fix

I must ask, why do I only hear about Gamergate recieving bomb threats but not feminist things? I expected some fight fire with fire.

Oh you hear about them getting the threats, just never see them made. They get them all the time, it's just the police never get them, or the fire dept, or anywhere that a screen cap can be taken; but trust me they get threats all the time!

Well, only one person, or even troll or false flag is needed. I suppose that says something about Gamergate.

People who want ethics in journalism often want ethics elsewhere.

Yes and whoever did it signed the name of some YouTube guy (he made a video about the FBI coming to his house).
