NeoGAF & #metoo

Recommended Posts

I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or just say WTH...

I'm not really a liberal (I am in favor of diversity and against racism, I'm just often not keen on many of the ways too many liberals go about supposedly promoting these and other aims, with this being a good example of doing so in a stupid and even missing-the-point sort of way - not that I think it's inevitable for liberals to do that badly, of course, and not that I want to have an in-depth discussion of all that right now, just giving background info), but certainly even to liberals this seems crazy or at least really strange??

That's a fake account made to spread nonsense and slander the new website.

I'll edit the post then, fell for it :P It honestly overall sounded pretty in-line with the mods' work before.

Theirs been a rise in Anti-Gaffer's since the closure, and some are pretty hellbent on destroying anything that remains of NeoGAF, wither it's for good intentions or just to be a total asshole. twitters, discords, temp forums, they are raiding them all  and forcing closure on some of them.

Best not to take everything you guys hear as truth until ResetERA actually opens, that tweet should've been obvious though.

Looks like NeoGAF will be back up later on not that anyone that bailed cares, but its going to be reformatted to just focus on video game discussions. meaning, everything else is going to get nuked from the sounds of it.

Yeah to be honest, fuck Showerboy McAssgrabber. Victim blaming, egocentric sociopath piece of shit. Everything about how he's reacted to this situation makes me queasy

I won't be going back, and TBH I can find the same things i went there for on a site not run by an arsehole.

All these GG fucks are trying to paint the site as some.... anti white person nightmare, why even bother when the admin is a remorseless sex pest?

I got tempbanned because in one thread, presumably the staff were okay with the fact that a transgender was having sex with a man and the trans didn't tell the man beforehand that she was a trans.

You shouldn't have been banned, but I bet it was due to using "a transgender" as opposed to "transgender person"

But come on. I made a mod (probably duckroll) tick because I forgot to add "person?" They didn't even try to correct me, warn me or whatever, just threw the banhammer at me. And the ban reason was pathetic. I forgot most of it, but I remember one of the lines saying "I need to educate myself on how to stop victim blaming" or something like that. You wouldn't want to go near me around that time. I was fuming. WTH? I didn't even get a chance to respond! Tried e-mailing them, tweeting them...they basically ignored me.

The tempbanning made me realize how poison and how strong the dictatorship of the staff team were. I didn't believe it when I hear permabanned members kept saying so, but after that moment I had to believe them.

Sounds like an unfair ban. I imagine with a forum that moves that fast they don't really have the time or paitence to talk/warn everyone, hence the itchy trigger finger. Still shitty for you tho.


Somehow I managed to go ten years and 10s of thousands of posts without getting banned once ? so my perspective on the moderation is different than most.

Speaking of duckroll...


Resetera is gonna be a fucking disaster

doubt it but the anti-gaffers are trying their best.

for example, the scumlords and anti-gaffers on 8chan are using the usernames they got from raiding discords to post social media profiles on pastebin.

this is getting vile, I can understand being anti-neogaf but this is taking it a step further.

Hey, hi

Could we, like, not post the link to that here. I know you're highlighting how shitty these guys are but I don't think here is the place to share their handiwork. Especially since some of that info leads to porn sites.

 

Also I wish I didn't need a fucking account to report shit like this.

I meant no ill will by it but I would keep the link just to check the names, I swore I saw some familiar names and I know some of here were Neogaf members and are on the various discords.

No problem, bringing attn. to the fact it exists is good but IDK if linking to what is basically doxxing is a good thing. You're not in trouble or anything.

Someone I know IRL is on that list but it's just his social media accounts. I think they might have got the list of people from those that were following Resetera on twitter and are just cross referencing them with gaf usernames. His doesn't seem to be linked to his acct. so I guess he's lucky he used a different handle on twitter.

By the by- I don't understand the malicious obsession with ruining the lives on people just because they were members of a forum you didn't like. What the fuck

So has this bastard come out with a statement yet or is he just gonna sweep it under the rug? Seriously, I’m livid. If he brings NeoGAF back without even a single comment made I’ll never ever visit the site again. 

Fuck I’m gonna miss that place for the Box Office and NPD sales stuff too! D:

The pastebin full of accounts is pretty awful. How pathetic do people have to be to go out of their way to try and make people miserable.

It should be noted that if you go to the mobile GAF site and check the categories, Off-Topic is completely gone. You can't actually see any content, but it's pretty clear that OT got nuked to mitigate shit talk against him. So many threads and communities gone.

With regards to ResetEra, we're getting regular updates on how things are progressing, which is nice, and the admin staff that's been chosen is fairly encouraging. No exact ETA on when the new site will be up, but a lot of the things I've been hearing are quite encouraging.

EDIT: Malka's statements and responses in that Waypoint article are also awful. Like, holy shit.

Right, just read the Waypoint article and yeah, fuck that guy. Fuck him. I’m definitely not visiting NeoGAF anymore when it comes back, he doesn’t deserve my views that’s for Goddamn sure!

Crossing my fingers that ResetEra will be a good replacement. T_T I’m thinking of joining if it’s a success.

People are sharing a, quite frankly ridiculous alleged statement Evilore Fucko DeAssgrab made about this to NeoGAF moderation. (it's bi)

Quote

"Okay, so, this is a personal and somewhat complex web of nonsense involving a highly unstable individual I was friends and briefly FWBs with, but I can only assume there will be a never-ending clusterfuck on gaf now until the end of time, which inevitably involves you guys and gals on the mod team in some way, so I'm an open book here. The woman in question ended up being completely psychotic and held a grudge against me after a bizarre love triangle situation developed a few years ago between me, her, and another girl (the other girl I ended up in a long-term relationship with shortly thereafter). This NOLA story she apparently just put up on social media is a delusion of a deeply disturbed person who had a total psychological breakdown as a result of me and the other girl getting together, because she (phew, yeah…) became obsessively infatuated with the other girl (she's bi) on sight when the three of us met up. I wanted to just stay friends with the girl making the accusation and made it super super clear ahead of time that me and the other girl were interested in each other romantically and that could play out as such when we met up. Supposedly this was not a problem for her from accusation, but in reality she uhhh wanted me to die painfully after seeing me and the other girl interact. Plus she became infatuated with the other girl simultaneously to this (she's bi), which created the aforementioned bizarre love triangle that ended up causing her to implode and have an apparently very intense and long-lasting grudge. The whole story about how that love triangle thing played out is, frankly, nuts and scary, and involves this girl bringing us to a compound of dangerous scientology spinoff cultists on that same trip, who roofied us, attempted to recruit/scam me and attempted to abduct/rape the girl I ended up dating, in what was a fucking scary situation that resulted in me and the other girl and the rest of my friend circle never speaking to this girl from the accusation again."

If I had got this in the GAF mod slack channel I would have resigned too, lol. WTF.

Love how he managed to skim over the whole "sneaking into the shower naked behind a vomiting girl" part in favor of just trying to assassinate her character as much as possible. Fuck off dude. He reminds me of someone I used to know who was a total fucking sociopath.

edit: mumei just confirmed it on another forum. Fuck this dude.

Futhermore: I'd be really carefully about signing up to anything Resetera related after the doxing. I'm not entirely convinced the whole thing isn't a scam to just steal personal info from gaf members.

That last bit is something else. He literally said "we were drugged by a scientologist sex cult"
