About

Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.

Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.

As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:

I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.

Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.

Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.

Commented on Someone Finally Tells it Like It Is

How about this: what about the DMCAs on youtube videos critiquing her game, and discussing the controversy? How about steam users getting banned from the Depression Quest forums for expressing negative opinions of the game? I shouldn’t have to explain to you that using copyright claims in this manner is morally wrong and against the law.

How about Wizardchan users being used as scapegoats by SJWs looking for an easy target, and being told they should all kill themselves?

How about Phil Fish faking being hacked in order to garner sympathy for himself?

How about the Fine Young Capitalist game jam for women, that was vilified and doxxed into oblivion because Zoe perceived it as competition against her own game jam?

Tell me how these things aren’t problems. Some of this stuff is borderline illegal.
If it was a man doing any of these things, they’d be fired on the spot.

I know my town’s drug dealer too.
Though, everybody just calls him the pharmacist.

I’d love to see her really get doxxed, and arrested for truly illegal activity.

Commented on Zoe fans on helping female game developers to start honestly in the industry.

Pfft, of course they can’t do research before hand. As we’ve seen, the people in power are completely happy to believe anybody who claims they’re ‘offended’ or ‘oppressed’, regardless of proof.

They don’t need to do research. They don’t need to present evidence. They don’t need anything.

It’s a witch hunt. A modern with hunt.

The rabbit hole is fucking endless.

Commented on More Gaming Media Cover-ups

I say this:
Become the Edward Snowden of video gaming! Please, be the whistle blower we need!

Hell, this all makes me want to start up a gaming news site just to, if nothing else, bait all this bullshit. Jump down the rabbit hole so I can see how far down it goes, and crawl my way back up with proof for everyone else.

Thank you based KYM for being a solid compilation of news on this issue, where censorship has oppressed nearly all other sources of discourse across the Internet.
