  1. I will be making a follow up vid to joe regarding controversies on my channel www.youtube.com/variloh dont miss it
  2. Being "controversial" does not make you a controversy. I can be a controversial person for example. What im saying is that to reduce it to a simple controversy does it a disservice. Its a movement. Is it surrounded by many controversies? you can argue it is. But every single thing you mentioned is a controversy in of itself. They are obviously linked to #GamerGate but that does not make GG a simple controversy. it doesnt even make it the mother of controversies.
  3. his latest tweets and other evidence that is under our noses hints at how he will cover it. I strongly disagree the begging of GG was controversial. IF you are referring to the Quinspiracy, i still disagree.
  4. yeah got to disagree with the first 2. #GamerGate (no s) is not a controversy, its not even a movement anyomre, its a subculture in it of itself. but besides this, the reason i disagree with this being on the list is twofold: 1- I would dislike seeing joe talk about something he is clearly biased about, and this may be just that. if its not, it would do the movement a diservice to sum it up in 5,10,15,20 mins by someone who has openly admitted to not really be paying atention to it. 2- Your second entry. Her "Death Threats" (AS) have been vastly overblown and in some occasions, like the utah university one, have been completely discredited, not by GG but by the authorities. Not only that, putting her back on the list, again, would inherently be about GG, and blame would be placed on GG.
  5. In the vain of Boogie and TotalBiscuit. Its an interesting topic people are thinking about and ive gotten many msgs after i put out this video: Do you think joe should stand up for gamers in some, none or all of these issues?
  6. This should of been the initial answer. simple clean and to the point. Not making speculation ,or accusing me of things i never said, or taking a shot at #GamerGate. As i already said, this all could have been avoided if i would have been asked what i was talked about instead of ridiculed. Initial response is key. Next time i will make sure to add evidence in first post, i was expecting to be contacted and thats why i saved it for private discussion but i guess plp are jumpy. noted. No hard feelings on my part (as long as people drop speculating and putting words in my mouth) so lets move on. @Sol Omega regarding this: "Either way, he's better off not touching it. If he does, he'll probably state his opinion in the most neutral way possible. Like he did with Anita in his Top 10 controversies." im not alone when i say that the way he handled anita was far from neutral. acceptable at the time but not neutral.
  7. I will respond to this since a big part moves away from the actual conflict but all future coments please send them to me via PM. id love to respond publicly but if this keeps getting off topic i have been told it will be locked and it does a diservice to the original point of this forum: #gamerGate and angry joe. Let me dissect this to better address you. First off i say: "you can say im an asshole, thats ok".in most of my vids, that is correct. however, context is key: i say you can do so in the comments of said video if you dont like my opinion. that doesn't mean its ok to call me an asshole if you meat me on the street because "you said i could!" xD . Now the apology thing, granted i got heated, il explain that in a second, but it was basicly a response to his "can we get a sorry?" in his first post, as i said, i wasnt suggesting a conspiracy theory, and nobody bothered ask. it was basicly "HE MEANS THIS, FIRE AT WILL BOYS!" . i went from asking a legitimite question to having to go into defense mode in one post. Telling plp to do there jobs: well, nobody answered my Mod question and instead, well you saw. Is this not justified? i also called them children specificly because of the batman post. i stand by it Fishing for views: i would suggest you go into my content (click my profile) you will inmidietly notice some stuff: one, i dont only post on/about my vids. Two, ive been here for 1 year, my channel is 2 mouths old. Three: i have been involved in the Dota 2 community. a lot. 4) my twitch channel and Gamer Mind season 0 was dedicated to AJSA where i would promote the community. 5) Even on my youtube channel i constantly do shoutouts. 6) the videos in question, are relevant to the topic. im guilty of being lazy and not wanting to write that which i said. 7) See full disclosure post in this forum Any aditional concerns feel free to m me. ITs good to be on the look out for shilling so for that i applaud you.
  8. yeah i figured it out when another mod finally told me the thread was deleted and my post was moved to another thread. it also happend cause it was moved to a subcategory for what ive been able to see. What you just did, the answer, thats what mods should do, 100 % agree. The problem could of been avoided if that answer was given the first time i asked. The only thing i resent is having an idea tacked on to me. Anyone who knows me knows i stand to my guns and am direct about things, i dont weasel around, my vids are proof. if i thought there was a conspiracy, id say it straight up. Heck i made a vid about joe and posted it in his community! I expressed myself wrong and was not my intention to imply anything (i have already said this tho). Believe me, if i thought there was a conspiracy, and had proof, there would be either a forum post directly stating it or a vid xD . Now back to topic: Regarding the "pushing joe" part, i dont need him to make a vid, as you said thats his choice. I do believe he should ad least say "i will not get involved with #GamerGate because X" or something. not save it for a controversies vid. Thats just my opinion as ive said and defended, its a big issue and its clearly important to his own comunity (look at GG thread, its the biggest one around! bigger then the ones he himself posted in i believe!(rules and such))
  9. I did not discuss the idea that anyone was manipulating anything. Stop putting words into my mouth and read what i wrote, and its not an "if" i posted the pic. i have no problem moving this discusion to a pm but i will not allow plp to put words into my mouth.
  10. Who is this one person you speak of? and i agree, this discussion NEEDS to happen, this is not some political thing, its about gaming, anyone who says otherwise needs to do research. Back on topic: I came to AJSA to discuss this because among the sea of anger, this was an oasis. This community represents fighting against all that is wrong, i have had great debates on Gamer Mind with members of this community and is why i always stop here first. II enjoy debating all plp, those who agree, disagree or are neutral. I also believe joe is not above criticisms and even tho he may never see ours posts or our videos, maybe the message will get to him. Hell, in my opinion he is an example of "stand u for what you believe in". regarding joe and GamerGate i strongly believe he is a leader in the gaming world, a voice, and the fact this community has rallyed so many cool plp proves that. He can make a difference if he really wants to.
  11. At this point, id suggest you think your posts through. Im clearly not here to get views, my posts have proven this as well as my body of work in the AJSA. You are free to believe as you wish and we can debate why you belive what you believe regarding joe commenting on #GamerGate civilly, as recovery and me were doing. Im going to do this, once so listen up.: At this point you comments have turned into attacks and i feel you are crossing the line into disrespect. At the suggestion of another mod i will address you civily. Your first accusation, i addressed in the previous post (which you ignored, since it has this little thing called "evidence") . that was your first mistake. Secondly, regarding this : Are you doing all this bullshit for the views? Also if you were trying to get that YouTube video of yours views by posting that here, then you posted in the wrong forum. This ridiculous post of yours in which you posted that long winded video should be in Community Content, not here. My original post, the last half reads as follows: The forum has been made with two purposes: 1- To get this video to Joe 2- For anyone who wants to chime in on the message to freely do so. I also know that since joe is all for free speach, and will defend even Sarkeesians right to voice her opinion by "fighting anyone on the street" that this forum post wont be locked or moved. a) I originally posted this in the "General Description" in a new form post, this forum, as reads the description is ment to "discuss anything and everything". this forum is ment to create discusion regarding #GamerGate and Joe, as the debate initially started. A mod deleted my forum and put this post in a preexsisting forum, were debate went fine, until you and legolas took what i said badly, and insted of doing you job, you mocked me and asked for an apology. and this: "All you're doing is stirring up bullshit" i would thank you to address me respectfully. if you disagree with my views i will gladly debate you. For all this Mr Redjakk, i ask you to apologize to me, unless mods are above the rules?
  12. Also, for a reviewer, we all seem to forget when he "indirectly" sent the angry army after a youtuber who had what he perceived an offensive video. He has power and knows how to use it
  13. I expressed how i believe this sort of sentiment is not accurate in my video. in a shorter format: this is not "outside news" this is gaming news, more important then the Xbox1 controversy (which he covered extensively in real time) the tomb raider, the bayoneta, etc controversies, the YOUTUBE CONTROVERSIES, hell, this idea that "hes just a reviewer this is outside his jurisdiction" is simply false and needs to be accepted as such. Hell, he made a Gaming community, hes not just a guy who does reviews anymore. does this mean he HAS TO cover this? no, it does not, but its very much understandable why he is expected to. IMO he should, at the very least give full disclosure as to WHY he refuses to cover it, and if you look at my video, he does not seem very "neutral" in his initial tweets. With great power comes great responsibility, and there is a fine line between neutrality and pure silence, silence give those who want to silence the movement credibility. And giving your opinion is never a bad thing, i agree and disagree with #GG, there is no "two sides" to this. For all this and more, i strongly belive he has a moral obligation to lead the gaming community with his voice, he is one of the few with a megaphone, it is a slap in the face to those of us who dont have one to refuse to use it.
  14. Thats unacceptable to me, as its more politics then actually caring about gaming. totalbiscuit has taken a side. And quiet frankly, if you watch the video his initial stance is not "neutral". He then backpedals of course. Thing is, i believe in my own personal opinion that joe is not some politician or is not in it souly for cash and fame, hes a leader in the gaming community, we trust him, to reduce #GamerGate to a simple controversy and to be politically correct to not get anyone mad is, to me, to betray that trust. He does not have to support, or go against. I would just like to hear his thoughts, I dont agree with a lot of things that are being assosiated with #GG, look at my feminism vid for proof. This isint a little boo boo, its a huge debacle. To me, hes got a moral responsibility. I said all this in more detail and better presented in the video.
  15. No you cant, but you can give me a sorry, read below First off i did not intend to say that anyone was covering anything up, perhapes i should of said "is this some intentional mechanisim placed in the forums for some reason im unaware of?". Since considering that vid has more views then any ive made, thats kind of impossible. There seems to be an error in the forum not a mod, you see if you would of taken 5 mins to investigate the first time i asked you would of found it, insted of well, showing your true colors with "Now I know that you guys like your poorly thought out conspiracy theories but since I always enjoyed research and actual evidence, here" the evidence, pictures taken today and on the day i made the post are in the following link. Advice for the future: insted of posting things like what you posted, perhaps contact me directly if you felt offended, i think my history in the AJSA kinda proves who i am and how i operate and saying things with no proof ryme or reason isint my modus operandi" https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BxeCZWLoFWz9NzdrekhzSDRtS1E&usp=sharing
