#GamerGate crushed Gawker

Nero reports on the costs to Gawker of attacking #GamerGate:
The cost to Gawker Media of its ridicule and viciousness toward video gamers was "seven figures" in lost advertising revenue, according to the company's head of advertising, Andrew Gorenstein. In addition, founder Nick Denton has stepped down as president and editorial director Joel Johnson has been removed from his post and will probably leave the company, reports Capital New York....
And now here is a chance to kick the SJW while he's down. An Ilk suggests action:
A few of us were inspired by that stupid Change.org petition that got GTA5 banned to try to use the same tactic against Gawker's biggest revenue sources. I figure it may be especially effective to kick them when they're already reeling from the previous damage we've done, while Hulk Hogan's suit and their insurance company threaten to bleed them further. The petition is here: Get Google and Amazon to stop advertising on Gawker Media.

We'd like to spread this around and get the signature count up before posting it in the usual GamerGate avenues (ie our Twitter accounts, 8chan, KotakuInAction), so that anti-GamerGate won't know it's happening, and won't realize that it's coming from us or be able to respond to it until it's too late for them to do anything about it.

They're down. Kick them hard and keep them there.

The hulk Hogan sex tape/Jennifer Lawrence nudes dichotomy was hilarious. It's totally wrong to look at hacked nudes of this chick, but check out this sex tape of this guy that a judge ordered we take down yet we refused!

@EyeGame.
Any sound company that showed a 30 percent year-over-year revenue increase would be ecstatic, and the management would be lauded as heroes. So how come the president and editorial director are stepping down?

Anonymous Brother Thomas December 12, 2014 4:05 PM  

Maybe they can ask for a bailout? That's how other unpopular entities that can't survive in a free market do it.

Blogger JCclimber December 12, 2014 4:18 PM  

They're not "stepping down", they're "focusing on roles where they can add the most value" and "pursuing other career opportunities to fully utilize their talents".

Seriously, get with the program. They're advancing in the direction away from the enemy.

What's interesting to me is how I used to be merciful to the weak and pitiable like this, when I was younger.

The problem with that is, I should save my mercy and pity for those who are deserving of it, not the useless parasites like the Social Justice Whores.

You don't understand how social media works. They pay for revenue. The revenue information alone means nothing. The question is the profit. If their costs went up 50 percent and their revenue went up 30 percent, that would be non-ecstatic.

Fortunately I have 'mailwasher' a really neat anti-spam program.

Loads a preview of all your email into a window and identifies which ones are spam and not. And you can 'train' it by telling it which ones are spam. You can also discourage spammer by setting mail to 'bounce' which sometimes does nothing but sometimes tells spammers they are wasting their electrons sending to this address.

When you're done training you click 'wash' and it deletes the spam from your queue at the mailserver and only downloads the mail you want. it gets to the point where you hardly see the spam.

Google a street address and corresponding zipcode and use a fake email address.


"Society has been carrying you feral dogs for decades, picking up after you and keeping you from hurting yourself. The least you can do is be grateful."

You, the ones who need "trigger warnings" to keep you from having panic attacks at every day realities associated with human existence, have been carrying US? You've been keeping US from hurting OURSELVES by putting trigger warnings on YOUR OWN posts to keep YOU from attempting to kill YOURSELVES? And we should be grateful for that?

Let me make it absolutely clear... YOU are MENTALLY-ILL retarded FREAKS who cannot even help YOURSELVES. Your actions on OUR society are CORROSIVE. And far from being "grateful" for your little temper tantrums, I hope you choke to death the next time you have a fit over the fact that a video game marketed to the MAJORITY WHITE U.S. has a White male heterosexual protagonist.

If you think there's anything that gamers, as a group, would refuse to do, then you haven't been paying attention. Or you're engaging in the usual shaming attempts based on wishful thinking. Yawn.

Absolutely. A normal person, in a situation like this, instinctively wants to back off, to see if they'll have learned their lesson and can now be dealt with like reasonable people -- because that's how he'd react. But with leftists, that only gives them time to hush up the embarrassing story, regroup, and attack elsewhere.
