Bob 'PC-Gaming-is-Dead' [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-big-picture/2911-PC-Gaming-Is-Dead-Long-Live-PC-Gaming] Chipman, surely?

C'mon! Let's give old controversies some love and be smug in hindsight.

HAHA! Well they do say go big or go home... but isn't getting a billboard kind of counter productive to the whole "get free advertising" idea?

Welcome to the wonderful world of being accused of being a SJW Erin ... or should I say ...

Welcome to Hell!

That's like asking starving lions not to rip apart that poor defenceless zebra.

Lees' hair is quite preposterous, isn't it?

It must run about while he's sleeping and then before he wakes up it goes back on his head so that he doesn't notice.

Erin's boss has it wrong. Erin doesn't need to say anything inflammatory. She nearly needs to continue that sentence about diversity and by the time it hits the web, it'll BE "all white men are rapists."

As someone who evidently is "infamous,"I should know!

I don't know how neither Cory or Grey ended up on that list, after WGDF.

Quick, guys! Free publicity, just release a new WGDF!
Baffling, innit? I would think they'd be public enemies #1 and 2 with the response that got.

No, a sentence about equality would be pretty much ignored on either side. If a SJW says it, #gamergate will just pass over it in favor of cherry picking the hatespeech. If someone on the #gamergate side of things says something about equality the sjws will pass right over it and slander them with muh-soggy-knee anyway.

The internet hates my two favorite Escapist contributors. Great!

(I disliked Sterling when he gave Kid Icarus Uprising a 5/10. But Jimquisition is great, so whatever.)

What white men do in their spare time is their own business: can they make good games?

Dude, I don't think you know who you're talking to. As an internet infamous SJW who has been labeled "the worst of the social justice warriors" for pointing out things like the fact that women have served in wars, I think I've got a pretty good grasp on what it takes to start a shitstorm.

Actually, one need not look further than Anita Sarkeesian, a woman who could read the ingredients of breakfast cereal and still get hatemail based on it.

How do you dislike a person for a single review? Did he compare Uprising to Hitler or something?

Even though I still enjoy the comic to some extent, I find it hard to take the political stuff more seriously once I discovered how large of a hypocrite Grey is. Using the Gaza Defense on why we shouldn't talk about corrupt journos just weeks after ridiculing the Gaza Defense is incredibly asinine.

Are you joking around or has a point gone completely over your head?

Wow. Mr. Sterling's character lends itself to being visually caricatured fairly easily, but I am impressed at how much such that drawing is identifiable as Bob Chipman.

As to the list...that thing seriously pisses me off. I do not believe even a little bit that its creator understands what the word "censorship" means, and I would love to know how he defines it such that whatever the people he complains about are censoring him but his trying to silence those people by taking away their jobs does not meet that same definition.
