I'm not intending to keep this line of conversation going, but for an ostensibly voracious tweeter, the account in question has fallen silent since it's massive climactic half-cocked gasket blow. But then again Twitter is more addictive than crack to crazy people, so who knows if they'll be back. I don't honestly care and neither should anyone in this thread.

It's worth it to report, IMO; I've been driven to report some bad actors before and it got results. Bear in mind that we're a lot less likely to hear about cases where the system works the way it should.

As far as I know his currently scheduled next major release is Nier, followed by a yet unannounnced video (probably Undertale imo but who knows), maaaaaaybe Horizon: Zero Dawn if he finishes it fast enough (so probably not) and then a hiatus for the channel while he aims for Witcher 3 by the end of the year.

Jon Bois working for SB Nation is kind of like if instead of LA Galaxy having a 36 year old and kinda banged up but still pretty good Zlatan Ibrahimovic, they had Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his prime. His videos are that good, and his writing is even better. Obviously you go ahead and try to build your whole team around that but his style can't be repeated.

Yea I really like SB Nation as a whole and they have fun people with good show ideas, but it's hilarious how obviously everything is based around 'we need to do Jon Bois' thing as best we can as often as we can'. Like, I'm not making GBS threads on it, it's a good plan and they have juuuust enough distinct flavors of Jon Bois to make it work without feeling stale, but considering he was first known as this kinda niche sports internet thing it rules that now he's an outlet's Rosetta Stone.

I believe the point the anime robot housewife is trying to make is that "sjw" types tend to cover up for their sides crimes regardless of how heinous they might be, on top of later it coming to light that other people knew about it but said nothing purely because they agreed with them on something such as the current implosion of channel awesome, really not sure what the goobers have to do with this either, I have never understood this mentality of not calling out an rear end in a top hat for being an rear end in a top hat purely he stands with you on the same political spectrum and or ideologies.

Have you ever dealt with victims of abuse? Rape? And I mean real abuse, not this "someone called me a bitch on the internet, that means I was raped" kind of abuse, I mean honest to god life altering abuse that changes your life entirely and crushes your every hope and dream, I have, I was one!

They're some of the most manipulative people you will ever meet in your life, some notice it early on and stop, others don't and realize they can forever beg for sympathy because of what they experienced, most people are to afraid to call them out because of what they experienced, then the manipulation turns up a bit, it gets worse and worse, eventually 2 possible things can happen.

1. The victim will be abandoned by pretty much everyone, tired of their poo poo.
2. The victim will be told they're being a manipulative poo poo in a very violent and explosive fashion which then makes their trauma worse, because they might endure another, such cases tend to end in suicide.

Its ok to call someone out for being a piece of poo poo regardless of what you went through, bad life experiences is no excuse to treat others like poo poo and its certainly no excuse to abuse other's either, regardless of what side of the fence you sit on, what political party you follow or whether or not you truly believe it was about ethics in gaming journalism, its perfectly fine to call out someone who's being an rear end in a top hat, moreso if they're perpetrating a horrifically heinous crime such as what JewMario did, not sure why this is such a hard concept for so many of you to grasp, GamerGate is dead and has been for years, there is no "winning" if you call out someone on the "right side of history" for being a horrible garbage, there is only losing for the victim crying for help but is drowned out by idiots who can't let the other side "win" in this retarded culture war that doesn't want to loving end.

Despite the fact that fake Japanese housewife got numerous critical details wrong and invented others out of whole cloth purely for the purpose of smearing their political opponents, I'm going to pretend I'm the sensible one by re-interpreting their clearly partisan garbage as though it were an exasperated cry for "an end to the culture war" and not itself an already overt example of the very culture war it claims to decry.

I cannot be more satisfied seeing how dead Channel Awesome is right now, of course a network full of manchildren who constantly whine and moan about movies, cartoons, and video games while having zero industry experience was never going to be profitable and everyone needs up getting hosed over by some arrogant cunts who clearly need to go into hiding (except Mike Michaud, he should go ahead and kill himself for the greater good).

I have more respect for all the members who spoke up about the gross poo poo behind the scenes (all except Spoony for obvious reasons). Although I still think their youtube and review careers are a complete joke, they were honest and wanted to put a stop to lovely business practices, which I admire.

This was somehow a bigger crash and burn than Rebel Media, and that's kind of surprising. Maybe if we're lucky we'll see Mike's police record for unpaid debts in the aftermath...unless Mike tries to escape that by swallowing some cyanide. As for Rob and Doug, yes they're total loving egotistic assholes who scammed people via IndieGoGo, and were stupid enough for thinking they could make a living out of ranting about kids' movies forever, but I think it's safe to say they doesn't deserve that much blame compared to Mike. Maybe they'll go look for a new job and embarrassingly try to explain to employers what they've been doing for the last 10 years.

Anyway that being said, gently caress Channel Awesome and gently caress the head honchos for loving over everyone else and rightfully getting what they deserved. May it burn in hell.
