YAY Gamepolitics! Let's show them how biased we can truely be! Remember we only post things about vile Republicans no one dares to speak ill of their lord and savior here Barrack Obama who is god

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hate to break it to you, but it is GP's right to be as biased or not as they want. Besides, it is a fact that a higher percentage of people reading this tend to swing liberal, regardless of whether it has to do with Age, Education, Location, or whatever. If you don't like it, don't read.

I, for one, don't listen to or read anything by Fox News, because of thier rediculous conservative bias, not to mention, they are on the bottom rung with regards to how they represent Video Games.

Anyways, I also wanted to point out that your posts practically OOZE with ignorance and stupidity. They kind of have a "Hannity and Limbaugh said this so it must be true!" vibe. There's a reason the country is in the process of moving left, and you are a perfect example of why.

I can't wait until Nov. 4th Rolls around and your "Maverick" and his Woman are put in thier place by the American People. It's about time, too, considering America has been SO far behind the rest of the Western World with regard to Health Care, Economics, Social Policies, and Ethics. It's no wonder Europe thinks our country is nothing but ignorant rednecks..

I hate Barack Obama's love of gun control and I know I'm not the only here that does so. Although if you know of a flash game that makes fun of Obama or a machima vidoe let us know and it'll probably be posted (in fact I wanna see some Obama bashing from someone other than Mad Magazine).

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Yee-haw!  Let's put the Republicans back in so we can all keep our guns.  They'll come in real handy too when the economy REALLY goes down the crapper after a couple more years of the same failed policies, and we're left to fight over the last remaining fuel for our SUVs.

Yeeeeee-hawwwww!

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Remember kids it's Ok to engage in stereotypes if the other guy has a different opinion than you do.

For the record I still am not sure who I'm going to vote for.

Is it just me, or do most gamers lean toward the Democratic party?

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

People under the age of 35 tend to vote more Democratic whereas those over 35 tend to vote more Republican. I'm sure you know that most gamers under the age of 35.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

And majority of the world too.

Re: Political Machinima Lampoons Republicans

Hilarious! And full of that delicious political satire we've all come to love. I'm getting hungry for 'more of the same' goodness just through watching! XD

Game on, brothers and sisters.

Andrew EisenWell this is unique! A musical critique of the Factual Feminist's "Are Video Games Sexist?" video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-K4s7cV4Us409/20/2014 - 2:41am
Andrew EisenSome locked threads. Some let them be. So, no, I'm not seeing a problem here. No corruption. No collusion. No ethical problem with privately discussing ethics.09/20/2014 - 12:48am
Andrew EisenAnd still, in the end, Tito made up his own mind on how to handle his site. All 150 or so members went off to handle their own sites in their own ways. Some talked about it. Some didn't. Some changed disclosure policies. Some didn't.09/20/2014 - 12:40am
Andrew EisenThere were two comments other than Kochera and Tito's. One pointed out the Escapist Code of Conduct, another comment was in support of Tito.09/20/2014 - 12:40am
Andrew EisenKochera privately expressed his disagreement on how Tito decided to do something. No, I don't consider that crossing a line nor do I consider the exchange an example of the group pressuring him.09/20/2014 - 12:36am
Kronotechnical reasons. Anyways, I need to get to sleep as well.09/20/2014 - 12:29am
KronoAnd he wasn't the only one pushing Tito to censor the thread. If Tito had bowed to peer pressure, we likely wouldn't have gotten this http://goo.gl/vKiYtR which grew out of that thread. Said thread also lasted until a new one needed to be made for09/20/2014 - 12:28am
Krono@Andrew So it's an example of Kuchera crossing the line from reporter to advocate. And an example of the group pressuring for censorship.09/20/2014 - 12:21am
E. Zachary KnightAnyway, I am off to bed. I will probably wake up to all of this being knocked off the shout box.09/20/2014 - 12:20am
E. Zachary KnightKrono, that is the type of reading too much into things that bugs me. Ben did no such thing. Greg had the last word in that part of the exchange. The rest was about how to approach the story and Quinn.09/20/2014 - 12:19am
Andrew EisenSo?09/20/2014 - 12:13am
KronoExcept that the forum thread wasn't harassment, and Kuchera continued to push for the thread's removal after Tito made it clear he didn't consider it harassment.09/20/2014 - 12:12am
Andrew EisenPersonally, I see nothing wrong with someone offering their opinion or the other person making up their own mind on how to run their site.09/20/2014 - 12:06am
E. Zachary KnightKrono, I read nothing of the sort in that email chain. I read Ben giving advice on what to do when a forum thread is used to harass someone and spread falshoods about them and others.09/20/2014 - 12:05am
KronoThat's exactly what Ben Kuchera was doing to Greg Tito.09/19/2014 - 11:58pm
Krono@EZK So you see nothing wrong with one journalist pressuring a journalist from a different organization to not only not run a story, but to censor a civil discussion already taking place?09/19/2014 - 11:56pm
E. Zachary KnightI write for a number of blogs and talk to people who write similar blogs all the time for tips and advice. I see nothing wrong with that.09/19/2014 - 11:50pm
