Last week — JFC, was it only last week?! — Adobe accidentally endorsed GamerGate. Or at least, they appeared to be endorsing GamerGate, thanks to a misunderstanding on the part of Adobe’s social media team and some pretty impressive spin from GamerGaters.
According to objective data, #GamerGate is not about journalistic ethics. Colour me surprised.
Last night, Felicia Day — creator of The Guild and all around awesome person — posted a gentle I’m Not Mad, I’m Just Disappointed to members of #GamerGate.
It’s hard to believe that GamerGate is still going strong, even as media coverage of the so-called consumer rights movement becomes increasingly damning and gaming sites and trade groups move to distance themselves from it.
