    1. By contrast, Jeong’s tweets were, at best, mean to some white people

      The 'by contrast' here is saying that Jeong's tirades against white people "could [not] have made others around her uncomfortable".

    2. that she had openly supported the notorious neo-Nazi weev

      This is an outright lie: Quinn Norton said that she was friendly with weev, but she strongly disagrees with him.

    3. The screencapped tweets also circulated among fringe alt-right sites like the Daily Caller

      The Daily Caller is not 'alt-right'. This statement has no basis.

    4. in at least two instances dropped the n-word.

      The rhetoric is that "no human being is" that, including that no human being is a terrorist. Echoes of "no human being is illegal". Another instance of the radical left cannibalizing itself.

    1. Here’s the message it sent to the people on Reddit, according to one commenter:

      This links not to the quote that comes after, but the admission that he was trolling. The journalists here are lying and they know that they are lying.

    2. “Nobody at Arenanet is safe from the hand of Reddit. We’re literally running the company now, they’re in fear of the very users they seek to consort with ... The moment a dev steps out of line or try to talk back to a player, guess what, they’ll know we got their hands on their throat and we can squeeze any time we like.”

      The post that is cited here is a troll. It is obvious from the text, but the user later on admitted it as well.

    1. Yes, there were an absurd number of mistakes in Rolling Stone’s journalistic method, but like most events ostensibly about ethics in journalism, the kernel of the controversy is about politics, not journalism.

      Hahaha, yup. Ethics in journalism, indeed.

    1. And he has in fact recently resigned form his job to spend more time coordinating GamerGate. Oh, and he declines to either stop violating his restraining order or stop seeking to have it removed.

      I can't find where he's supposedly violated his restraining order. I do see him refuse to stop fighting it. But that seems like it would be his legal right, which makes me a little bothered by its representation here.

    1. YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND HOW PROBLEMATIC THIS IS. IT'S ALMOST THOUGHT TO BE IMPOSSIBLE. WHAT HAS ESSENTIALLY HAPPENED IS THAT WE HAVE TAKEN A CULT BEHAVIORAL APPROACH TO DISCUSSION AND PHILOSOPHY - NORMALLY A REALLY DIFFICULT THING TO INSTILL INTO PEOPLE AND REQUIRES ISOLATION, DIRECT PROGRAMMING AND FULL-ON CULTURAL SEPARATION - AND TURNED IT INTO SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN CASUALLY LEARNED ON THE INTERNET'S PROVERBIAL STREETS THROUGH THE ORGANIC PROCESS OF BEING A PART OF VIDEO GAME'S MOST TOXIC SUBCULTURE. THIS IS ONE OF THE SCARIEST THINGS HULK HAS EVER SEEN.
