Happy New Year from GamePolitics

December 30, 2011 -

On behalf of the ECA and GamePolitics, I wish our readers a happy and joyous new year! May 2012 turn out to be everything you imagine it to be, and may the forces that continually seek to take away our rights to play what we want and to express ourselves in the name of the almighty dollar be utterly humiliated and defeated.

I hope that you think we have done a good job of bringing the issues that affect every-day consumers to light in 2011 and that we can continue to do the same in 2012. It goes without saying that there are a lot of big issues facing consumers in 2012, including pending anti-piracy laws, company contracts that seek to take consumers’ rights away, restrictive anti-piracy schemes that make software cumbersome to use, the continual war against used game buyers, and the general oppression of free speech in the name of security, safety, and fighting against copyright infringement.

While these issues may not be on the top of everyone’s list in the wake of a floundering economy, a do-nothing legislature that is more interested in posturing than finding solutions, and an election year that will bring almost every important issue on hold, we will continue to shine a spotlight on what we think is important.

On a personal note, I thank you for your continued support, your constructive criticism and your daily visits to our tiny little corner of the Internet. You are the best readers on the planet. 

Happy New Year!

- James Fudge - Manage Editor, GamePolitics.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Andrew EisenThe Mary Sue isn't speculating, it's reporting.05/04/2015 - 5:18pm
Craig R.I think it's safey to say that whether GG is dormant is irrelevant, since GG itself quickly became irrelevant05/04/2015 - 5:14pm
Goth_SkunkLike I said, speculation. But evidently that's enough for a site like The Mary Sue.05/04/2015 - 5:09pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.themarysue.com/joss-whedon-deleted-twitter-account/ he seems to be tired off all the crap on twitter.05/04/2015 - 4:55pm
Andrew EisenWell, if something turns up that sounds like it would be worth reporting here, do let us know.05/04/2015 - 4:53pm
Goth_SkunkAFAIK, no one knows. It's all just speculation at this point.05/04/2015 - 4:50pm
Andrew EisenThat depends. Why did he shut it down?05/04/2015 - 4:48pm
Goth_SkunkNot sure if it's something this site would be interested in reporting, but Joss Whedon shut down his twitter account today.05/04/2015 - 4:46pm
Andrew EisenIt's a long-standing rule that heavy profanity (and anything that's just super gross) has no place in the Shout box. The community is pretty damn civil though so it rarely comes up so when it does, it's often a surprise to some.05/04/2015 - 4:45pm
Goth_SkunkI also noticed yesterday a concerted effort by this community to refrain from cursing. Is there a new rule? Or was that just coincidental?05/04/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenIt's certainly tacky but not to the point I feel it merits deletion or a ban warning.05/04/2015 - 4:38pm
Goth_Skunk@AE: Re: deletion of IanC's comment, you should probably extend that same courtesy towards Conster's comment about GG trolls pretending to be looters in Baltimore, too. Though to be fair, IanC's comment was deleted before I had a chance to read it.05/04/2015 - 4:35pm
james_fudgere: Sommers - I simply wrote that she's a "feminist" in our report.05/04/2015 - 3:53pm
Matthew Wilsonhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6lyURyVz7k its not gamming related, but this past weeks lastweek tonight is a must see.05/04/2015 - 3:39pm
Andrew EisenAlso, how are they trying to paint Sommers in a bad light? Far as I can see, all it says is she's "a professor and critic of contemporary feminism."05/04/2015 - 2:19pm
Andrew EisenIanC - I assume you're referring to Kotaku's report on the bomb threat. What comments are being censored? Any evidence? Not saying it didn't happen. I certainly censored yours, and for damn good reason.05/04/2015 - 2:18pm
Andrew EisenIf there's a story we're not covering that any of you think we should, please feel free to submit it as news.05/04/2015 - 1:48pm
Andrew EisenIanC - I deleted your comment. Such disgusting and libelous crap is not welcome here. Do it again and I'll ban you. This is the only warning you get.05/04/2015 - 1:46pm
IanCOh and GG has not been "dormant" its just that this site can't be bothered to report it. Im surprised they even reported the bomb threat. Threats against both sides are wrong, regardless of who is doing it.05/04/2015 - 1:44pm
IanCOh and Conster thats just sick. I like how its "i hate this group, lets pretend that they are doing something even worse". Thats just wrong.05/04/2015 - 1:41pm
