    Then where is the scandal? Or are the ethical standards just lower there?


    But you don't know if they fact-checked the death threat article or not. You're assuming they didn't, because you don't...

    If you genuinely want something just one step up from cow clicking, there's a whole ton of 'idle games'.

    Even then, there's a difference between a gardener and someone who just keeps their garden looking nice.

    I guess it's just that I feel a million miles away from people who obsessively play CoD or...
  4. Yeah definitely. For some people "MRA" is a...

    Yeah definitely. For some people "MRA" is a positive self-attachment too. And while we're at it, I'm an SJW and proud of it.

    The word has multiple connotations, not only for different people, but...

    It's more that I'm conceding the war on it. You're right that 'gamers' should not mean more than 'people who play games'. But it does, and those connotations are now quite negative, and I was never...
  6. Not quite. It's not just any people, it's 'a...

    Not quite. It's not just any people, it's 'a reasonable person'. You and your cronies don't count.

    What controversies? We've seen mainstream journalists in trouble for hacking people's voicemail. I don't think I've ever seen a controversy in the mainstream press of "journalist sleeps with person...

    Yeah but then you'd have moaned at her for being silent on the issue, not saying anything, and perpetuating a media blackout.

    She can't win with you, so she may as well do what she wants.

    You do a great job but the front page gets an order of magnitude more comments than the forums do. I don't know your personal situation, but if you really can afford to spend ten times more time...
  10. You're not a 'listener' or an 'experimenter'...

    You're not a 'listener' or an 'experimenter' though. It's a rubbish word, we've needed a new one for a while, let's abandon 'gamer' to the grognards.
  11. I dunno. The thing doesn't matter any more, but...

    I dunno. The thing doesn't matter any more, but just the fact that someone can read that and get from it the exact opposite of what was actually said, and actually get confused when you try and point...

    Okay, you need to help me. Because that says they were not involved in a relationship at the time. They were later, after which he didn't write about her. What are you reading from this that I'm not...

    That in the thread that was deleted, someone made a direct accusation of an RPS writer. On the RPS forum. Other people denied vehemently that this accusation happened, and accused me of making it up,...

    Six in ten years? That's a pattern? Just over one every two years? Even under the sort of scrutiny people are clearly putting them under. I'd say that's great going, it beats most every other sort of...

    No it isn't.



    Wonderful to see we have Kadayi and Palindrome demonstrating exactly how right John Walker was.



    Although I imagine now I'll be told I manipulated the Google cache or...

    No, I'm reporting fact. Whether you trust my reporting or not is up to you, but it's in no way 'an opinion'.

    People made accusations about NG, someone asked for evidence, Jim seconded it, someone...

    Amongst the stuff MagicMissile sent me, there's some compelling stuff about one or two specific people. Though even then it looks like it's more down to stupid journalists rather than corrupt ones.

    How do you define a 'personal connection'? It's not a binary thing. A journalist has to use their own judgement on how close they are to someone and the nature of the article. Unless you're...

    Fewer than ten accusations. That's not stuff that is fishy, just stuff that looks fishy and hasn't been investigated yet. I'd be interested if anyone has a list actually. It might not be more than...

    Except no. Because in journalism, the more fair and balanced you want an article to be, the longer it takes. If you value your time, then it costs money.

    You could always just read the journalists...

    When was the last time they made a donation to feminist causes not related to a particular controversy and that didn't allow them to annoy someone they didn't like in the process?

    But you can't deal with this sort of thing 'as a whole'. For all this shit storm, and attempts to paint this as questioning 'games journalism in general' it boils down to fewer than ten isolated...

    Not true. It's not enough to say "this writer knows this person, and has written about them, so it's a conflict of interest and immediately suspect". You also have to be able to show that the article...
