Back in the day I tried to get onto Channel Awesome. I was in college and me and my friends would watch Doug's stuff and then moved on to watching other things; I was a big fan of Lindsay Ellis and Spoony, and from him I heard about Brad and got into his stuff. It was great! Never made it on the site, though, partly because I didn't try long enough or hard enough, really. Though for a while I used to look back and think about having missed out on this amazing opportunity to work with these amazing people and do some great, creative work.

This whole situation makes me feel like the effort I put into that, and, hell, the fact I was ever a fan of Doug Walker at all, it was all a waste. What a loving waste of time. I'm glad some good people came out of it but the Walkers are going to still be making a ton of money out of this and out of their exploitation of their employees and it makes me sick.

If you learned literally anything about writing or cameras or lighting, or if you developed any insight at all into any particular film or genre, or if you got better at it in any way, your experience was less of a waste than Doug Walker’s life to date. Ditto if you managed to do it without harming anyone or contributing to the harm of others through inaction or stupidity.

Doug Walker reminds me of Kevin Smith in that he wants to be a great filmmaker but is unwilling to improve and learn basic technical stuff because he got ahead without knowing those things (among other things). But when it was time to come together and make something of higher caliber (the anniversary films) he wasn't willing to improve his skillset even the slightest, or at least this how it seems. Reading about how much of a technophobe he is is not surprising at all.

I was going to go to bed a few hours ago and then checked this thread and I found out about Justin turning out to be a sleazeball. This is just terrible. Terrible. I feel awful that I looked up to Jewwario when I should not have.

FoldableHuman posted:

After all, Justin functionally settled the issue himself, and there's complicated issues specifically when it comes to managing the risk factor that is the GamerGate crowd...

...I have little doubt that by the time I get home tonight I'll have between a dozen and two hundred messages accusing me of all sorts of stuff simply by proximity. The self-contradicting narratives are already starting to brew, looking for a witch to hunt.

On top of it all, it pisses me off so much Gamergate scumbags coming out of the woodwork again to assert their lovely, disgusting dominating personalities to prove how right they are about... about... I don't even know what they gently caress they're trying to say. One of them has used a screenshot of the above post in which FoldableHuman predicts that he'll be accused of poo poo to accuse FoldableHuman of poo poo.

Part of it could miscommunication or misunderstanding (Dan pointed out he didn't officially know until recently but I think some are under the impression that he knew from the beginning), but I think some are also angry about the sentiment of 'We didn't want to tell anyone, because GG would have a field day with it'.

Only Happy When It Rains


Arguments can be made that maybe someone might have tried to tell the victims that reporting Justin was for the best

Either way, these people are pointing fingers at way more names than the ones who actually knew about it back in 2013

And by 2018 its kinda pointless to tell anyone to report Justin....

Garrand
Dec 28, 2012




The problem is that it's a bunch of people willfully misrepresenting what's going on. Only a tiny number of people knew about what was happening when it was actually happening; this has all come out many years after his death and the only reason it came out at all is because of CA's inept responses.

The dude is loving dead; telling the world about what happened and opening up the victims to backlash helps literally nobody. These people don't actually care, they just want to feel self-righteous about how THEY would totally take down the scumbag etc.

They’re willfully misunderstanding that the people who wrote the document about CA only found out about the abuse last week when contacted by a victim, ie long after Justin Carmichael was dead.

CA management on the other hand revealed that they knew the whole time, chose not to contact any authorities, and tried to monetize the abuser’s death.

The thing is, somebody did take action. Very drastic action. That kinda made the chance of further incidents impossible.

At that point, what's left? Going to court with his widow and estate? Opening yourself up to backlash from a grieving and, lets not forget, kinda crazy fan community? To gain what?

The victims said they didn't want it revealed, and it's probably because they want to move on. It was years ago, one of them admitted to going to therapy, and dragging this drama into the spotlight is not helping anyone, especially not the people who were actually hurt.

God I hope they don't get found out, because I'm pretty sure these "righteously outraged" people are gonna turn and start harassing them pretty much instantly. And that's a best case scenario.

I especially love how this fact looks in relation to this part of the Not So Awesome document:

Dr gonzo posted:

So my first thought is he's [Mike Michaud] already got something planned. But then he follows that up with “Nobody know who you are. They won't care about anything you're gonna put together. We're gonna have Doug or Lewis or someone put something together. Someone people actually come here to see.” ...
... I could even see his thought process: What's the only thing that sells better than sex? Death. He was thinking someone who never heard of CA finding this tribute and going “Oh, someone on this site killed themselves? What's that about? And what's this website he worked on?” It was never about the loss, it was about PROMOTING THE BRAND.

It's strange how Dr.Gonzo's outrage here is ignorant of the horrible truth yet also accurate.
