Does he need a reason to hate Sow?
But he’s Canadian…
Many would dispute that, but I won’t.
I think that’s missing the point.
I think you mean “Nyanners: The voice of pure Kawaii.”
What we need to ask ourselves is, “Who are our opponents?”
Whenever I read about #GG, I feel like I’m playing Deus Ex. I don’t know who to trust. I think the best solution is not to trust anyone. Don’t participate in the movement. Don’t defend those affected. Pretend it isn’t happening.

I now suspect that Caliborn has been a self-caricature of Hussie ever since the beginning of Homosuck.

I don’t get why everyone’s so surprised that Thor is now a grill when Loki should have been a grill for at least a year by now…

Ah, good ol’ Quickstart…

Dude. This is not a first-time thing. /tg/ (which, by the way, is the best board on the site; you don’t even need the others anymore) went through a period of extremely strict moderation from (I think) 2010 to 2012. It’s known colloquially as “the nazimod period”. It was, to put it simply, horrible. I think at one point it got so bad that even posting an anime-related image warranted a ban. While it did solve a problem that needed to be solved (runaway /d/viance), it also did a lot of damage to the board. It scared off a lot of really good drawfags and writefags. It was definitely a cruel and unusual punishment, and definitely did more harm than it did good.
But you know what? It was eventually relaxed, and the board began to make a recovery. It’s still nowhere near as good as it was in its heyday, but it’s still a great place that has made the best of disaster, kept calm and carried on.
This too shall pass.
tl;dr MOOT DID NOTHING WRONG
I might get a shit for saying this, but I’m gonna say it anyway.
What moot says here is perfectly reasonable. I bailed out of the whole GamerGate fiasco before it even started being called that. It’s just internet political melodrama. I make it a rule to stay away from politics. I don’t browse /v/, but if I did, those threads would be a hassle. Probably bad enough to install 4chan X.
And seriously, no board (/b/ doesn’t count) was ever meant to be a “post whatever dumb shit strikes your fancy” thing. People (especially Americans) have a tendency to fetishize freedom of speech and put it on a pedestal as if it were some immutable platonic ideal that must not be tainted with any restrictions on communication whatsoever. But inside we all know how ridiculous that is. Being able to say what’s on your mind is important, yes, but that doesn’t mean setting rules on what can be spoken of where is Orwellian totalitarianism.
4chan’s still up and kickin’. A tiny change to status quo ain’t no end of no world. This isn’t completely unbuilding the identity of the site like what happened with the hyper-political revolution of SA. I trust moot to handle this. I agree that the GamerGate scandal is something that is bigger than 4chan, and while 4chan has definitely contributed to the story, the choice to withdraw isn’t at all a bad idea. It’s probably going to devolve into “anonymus is leigon” once the commotion has died down anyway.
“Pass the half-baked ideas, please.”
To be fair, there are plenty of guys who say stupid insensitive shit (usually not this blatant) and then wonder why they don’t get laid. Most of them are fedora-tipping ledditors, though.
