    I can't understand getting upset by articles you can choose to not read.

    Me neither. I'm not upset. I just said they were uninteresting and redundant.

    John's been trolled, pure and simple.

    Oh fuck I don't have 8000 posts! I must be some troll. I don't usually use the RPS forum I only came onto here to see what happened to the Borderlands 2 article. I'm not really a fan of forums and people like you are one of the reasons.

    Because choosing to ignore something doesn't change it or make it go away. You could say the same to John, and the other writers of RPS... "Don't get upset at games and business practices you can choose not to play and support"... but that would just be silly.

    Who has 'trolled' John? Cuppycake at the BorderHouse blog? Certainly not the vast majority of commenters on the Gender pay gap article, who were all quite polite and simply pointed out the problems with the numbers and statistics, and that some things were omitted from John's article.

    I don't think the situation is anyone's fault other that John's... he posted an inaccurate article (Borderlands 2), then handled the 'correction' pretty terribly and got quite angry with people pointing out his mistake. The he posted the Gender pay gap article, and he can't believe that people would question the numbers and statistics.

    No, you're a troll because you're trolling. So again I ask, who the hell are you to pick that fight?

    Wait so because I've not got billions of posts on the forum you are insinuating I have no right to post on it? You must be right you have a big number below your name. Shame on me, I'll delete my account immediately.

    Oh come on can we just not bother?

    Whether you like what John writes or not, I think the accusation that he just looks for issues is a little off. He does write about quite a broad range of topics, as evidenced by his posts today.

    To be fair, I don't have a big number under my name and my disagreement with the gender-related posts can only be out-measured by my complete indifference to the subject as a whole. I've more or less stated this in this thread and no one asked "who the fuck" I was...

    Can we stop the personal attacks, please. We all know we have no moderators that will bother to stop them, and the thread will just turn into a sh*t stain.

    Saying someone is angry is a personal attack? Okay, noted.

    Firstly, you called them an AIM, not just angry. AIM is kinda derogatory, do you not think? It's a bit more than just angry, otherwise why didn't you use angry?

    Secondly, just because someone uses a swear doesn't make them angry, and mean you can dismiss their posts. Otherwise, would anyone be listening to Mr Walker after his outbursts today? Or Nalano would be the biggest AIM in this place, ne?

    That's beside the point though... We don't use insults here, you don't comment about another commenters personality, or what sort of person they are. We restrict it to the substance of their posts, not the person behind the post.

    I concur, John needs a break. It's tiring to read (and yes, I will read it, because believe it or not there is balanced discussion to be had about sexism in gaming, and about borderlands DLC for that matter). In the meantime, I've cancelled my subscription. I've no interest in directly funding a soapbox to be used for a hissy fit.

    Nah, if anything John needs to write more.
    There's no manifesto. There's no formal plan.
