Ok, time for a little bookkeeping. Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been getting trolled on Twitter by Drybones and some of his crew. I referred to them as the “Triangle Mafia” at one point lol. I think calling them a clique is a more appropriate term. And even though a couple of people in their organization are rotten (such as Drybones), I still have a lot of good contacts with their members, including several mentioned in Neirdan’s exposé.

The funny thing about the article is, they thought I was the one writing it. That’s why Drybones and a few of his loser friends spent weeks trolling me on Twitter. Making fun of me for my site being down was one thing. Fine. I’m trolled all the time. But last night when he tried to make up lies about it being down was the last straw. The dude is a piece of shit, and I would denounce him just like I would anyone else trying to fuck with me. If others don’t agree with me, that’s cool too. The beauty of GamerGate is that we don’t have to agree. But I’m not gonna associate with a jealous hater who tries to use anti-competitive practices to drive my site traffic down.

Here’s one of the loser friends in action. These are the kinds of people who troll and celebrate when my site is down. That’s not the right type of attitude to have, to say the least. There’s plenty of stuff I don’t support, but I don’t actively go around and gloat about it failing (or try to sabotage it behind the scenes). It’s not how teammates are supposed to react.

The column lays out many troubling issues, but I don’t want to get into each allegation. The thing that bothers me the most is, the way this “triangle clique” seems to promote factionalization. You see it right here. This woman clearly thinks she’s a member of some elite squad, and that I should actually give a shit because of it. The entire group doesn’t act this way, like I said. But I’ve seen other outbursts like this one. Personally, I think it would be better if we did away with this sort of thing (large cliques), as it creates unnecessary division. I doubt I’m the only one who feels this way. I know some will say it’s just a shitposting operation, and there is a fair amount of that. But it’s not a great way to operate, in my opinion (which no one has to share, of course).

As for the rest of the article, I urge you to read it, and make up your own mind. I wouldn’t have used the term “council” to describe this grouping, and some of the other stuff was a little over the top. It’s seems more like a loose confederation, or clique, as I said. There’s several troubling aspects to it, although not every conclusion is supported. Still, I’m hoping that we can all move past this after a vigorous debate, and get back to wrecking corrupt journos, and SJWs. If you don’t like someone, don’t talk to them. I don’t like the people mentioned here, but I don’t question their commitment to GamerGate, even so. I just question a lot of their tactics.
