Something really funny is happening today. People are desperately trying to spin against me due to getting their hands caught in the cookie jar, so to speak. The fact of the matter is, I could have been a whole lot nastier with what I wrote yesterday. In fact, I explicitly said that I held no ill-will against @GameDiviner, and that this was simply an effort to shine a light on a plan I thought was complete and utter bullshit from the start. I didn’t mention our lunch and what he told me because I wanted the heat on the plan and not the man. Hell, I didn’t even say anything negative on air last night either, until I heard him call me an SJW for outing his behind-the-scenes maneuvering. I felt bad for leaking it at first, but I no longer do. It’s clear that this needed to be presented to the community at-large so that it could be shot down and we could move on. It’s not about hurt feelings, it’s about killing a terrible idea. 

And it’s not just your average shit strategy, by the way. These people were talking about killing GamerGate altogether. GameDiviner told me that he figured he had built up the most clout out of all the ecelebs (verbatim quote), and that he was moving on a plan to end GamerGate. I was told, in person, that this plan had the support of Sargon of Akkad, Oliver Campbell, LeoPirate, mombot, CultofVivian, and  others (verbatim quote). Pressure was put on me to accept it then and there. I asked if Master Milo had been involved with these secret deliberations, and I was told no. GameDiviner said he hadn’t talked to him about it because as a writer, he had a strong financial motive to keep GamerGate going (verbatim quote). He also said that we had to keep GG from being used as a tool of the right wing (verbatim quote). I pressed on this, and was told Milo would be notified. Later on, (through back-channels because I didn’t want to involve him directly), I got word that he thought this was just as dumb as I did.

To be fair, GameDiviner said he didn’t want to leave me behind to take the blame for anything the supposed radicals who would be left might do. He was really concerned with them committing an act of violence, which I thought was preposterous. This is an anti-GamerGate talking point, not ours. We’ve yet to commit any violence so far, so why would it be a danger now? It’s just silly, and regardless, I can handle myself.

Here’s GameDiviner, Paolo Munoz, from his KiA thread earlier today. It pretty much confirms what I just told you:KzBxW1e

By the way, it’s all good. Despite people like the tone policing CultofVivian (which sounds as insane as the person running the account actually is), I hold no ill-will towards Mr. Munoz. In fact, this was nothing more than me doing what I felt needed to be done. I wanted the plan to die, because I thought it was idiotic (for many, many reasons). Once I got a hold of the doc they were passing around, which repeated many of the same arguments Munoz had told me to my face, I knew it had to be spotlighted so the community could destroy it. Thankfully, that’s exactly what happened.

Now, people are free to take this account of mine, or they can leave it. But I can tell you for a fact, that it is 100% true. I will be addressing all this again tonight on stream at 6PM EST, but after that, I think I’m done with all this bullshit. At the end of the day, the plan to kill off GamerGate is dead, and we’re all better off for it.

(By the way, I didn’t come up with the GamerGatePros name, that was the dumbass (@TheQuQu) who actually wrote the document from yesterday.)
