Right before I fell asleep last night (actually 6AM, but whatever), someone sent me a link to an unhinged blog post on Medium. I kinda skimmed through half of it without looking at the author. I came upon a passage which I thought was hilarious. The person who wrote it, was REALLY concerned that I might make it to E3 somehow. I’m not sure why this worried them. I would like to go, but you have to actually write about the games themselves. I’d also like to do that, but at this point, I haven’t. What is this unhinged individual talking about, I thought to myself. Then, I sent out a sarcastic tweet about it, and went to sleep. I thought that was the end of the story.

However,  it was just the beginning. When I woke up, and turned on my Twitter delivery device, I noticed that people were talking about me and Zoe Quinn. They had our handles mentioned in the same re-tweet, or something. I did a little digging, and of course, come to find out, the Queen of Lies herself, was the one who said spewed all this garbage. It reads like the crazed rantings of a paranoiac.

But wait, there’s more! Not only did she slam me in that section, she also did something far more sinister in the next. I’m just going to post the entire paragraph here, even though it’s from a deluded skank like her:

“Lax requirements for press passes can put the same people who have discussed if they should bring a knife or a gun to the talk of a developer they hate in the same restricted access areas that developer may stick to for safety during game events. Now we have people looking to make careers off becoming the Perez Hilton of video games, and without being more proactive against gossip and harassment masquerading as True Ethics, we risk letting them seem as legitimate as the enthusiast press sites that will be the stomping grounds of some of our next best writers. And personally, I think that one scumbag Perez being a shining example of a shitty journalist is more than enough.”

I have never said anything about guns, knives, or personally attending dev talks, here on the site, or on Twitter. She uses a dishonest propaganda technique to link me to this act, even though I had never even heard of this threat, much less had a hand in it. So in the middle of a two paragraph section about me, this dishonest “developer” just throws that in, with no intention of tying it to me? I don’t fucking think so. I’ve been around the block once or twice, just like Ms. Quinn. Well, she’s been around it more than once or twice, but that’s a different story.

Censorship is a recurring theme for this woman. She recently started trying to silence me. But she’s trying to silence GamerGate from the beginning. The hyperbolic spin she put on events in a Facebook post to industry insiders at the outset of the events with Eron Gjoni, is about as insane as it gets. We have shown a lot of evidence of her corruption. Today, she tries to run a male developer out of the industry. But she still gets big platforms to spout lies. How can this be? The only answer, is that the professional media is truly dead. I’m just gonna post her long ass Facebook post here, and let you judge for yourselves. It’s another case of unhinged rantings, If you ask me. Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty of lies in there too:

zoefbpost

So, we have a proven liar, violent sociopath, and all around dubious ethical character, who wants to write columns challenging me on my ethics? She’s never done anything of note in the industry. Without GamerGate, she would still be an unknown nobody. Now at least she is a known nobody. There’s still no talent there, though, which is why she wakes up every fucking day and thanks her lucky stars that we came along. I have no doubt in my mind. She just started this shit up with me, because she knew I would write about her. She was right.

There’s one more reason, though, I suspect. People like her actually fear people like me. The reason, is because I don’t give a fuck. I don’t listen to people like Zoe Quinn when they tell me what to do. I do what I want. So, she launches a preemptive attack against me (and TechRaptor). She’s trying to strangle this site in it’s crib:

https://twitter.com/PlayDangerously/status/539884975412486148

That brings me to my last point, which is pretty simple. I have to respond when a scammer, liar, and con-artist like Zoe, tries to ruin me and my site. The media isn’t gonna challenge her, but there needs to be an alternative record here on file. That’s why my site exists. We are the keepers of the alternative record. Not everyone likes it, but I don’t care. I will always respond to attacks.

Also, I’m going to start looking into attending E3. Thanks for the idea, Five Guys Ms. Quinn. I might have to buy my way in like Tyler Malka the first go round, but we meet the requirements now. I just have too keep going, and add in some gaming content. I guess that’s unless Zoe and her crew get their way, and the rules are changed to keep dissenting voices out. It’s the SJW way, but we don’t have to bow down to their bullshit any longer. Fight corruption and censorship, and never waver.

  1. Now this is super low, even for her, man. She has the nerve to talk about ethics when she has proven, time and again that she has no grasp of the concept.

    I’d be super ashamed if I were in her shoes.

    Also, the entire thing is too long to dissect completely, even though it’s rich in content to point and laugh at, but these little gems from her tirade on medium.com (which she didn’t even bother to proofread before posting, apparently) deserve special mention:

    “A lot of entry level enthusiast press sites start without having any
    idea what they’re doing, largely recruiting from friends, and end up
    churning out unedited, poorly-written pieces and hovering around in
    prolonged irrelevancy outside of the immediate social networks of the
    writers as a result.” […] “You end up with people who want to run sites purely to obtain review
    copies and go to press events. You end up with people who care about
    being someone who “is in the games industry” more than they care about
    working in that industry effectively or contributing anything meaningful
    to it.”

    Remind you of any sites? Hmmm? Isn’t it super ironic?

    1. They’re like rock band groupies, looking to enjoy the perks of being in the gaming industry without all the hard work involved. But that would be an insult to groupies, since they do it for the love of the music and the bands. These wastes of carbon do it to push an agenda and stroke their saviour complexes.

    2. This is the same person that posed nude, then claimed they were given to a previous “shitty” ex. Man, she certainly has bad taste in men. Maybe that’s why she started diving for catfish on Annie Defranco Lake with the emo-haircut-bad-dye-job lesbian from Silverstring, you know, her PR person? lol these people just DRIP class.

      1. Glad to see another Jiz fan on here.

        “Bitch, I did not learn a damn thing. Now shut the fuck up and get me high!”

        1. lol Sienna de’Enema ftw. Shame he/she/glass of orange juice (oh wait, he/she is a drag queen, not an otherkin, so that last one doesn’t apply hah). I think the personal pronoun for a drag queen is still “he”. I’ll use “she” if they’re performing, but parts need to equal pronoun lol.

          1. IIRC, some drag queens prefer to be called “she” when in drag, and “he” when they’re not. Others (like RuPaul) don’t give a shit either way.

            With trans people – regardless if they’ve had corrective surgery or not – they prefer to be referred by the gender they identify as, not the one they were born as. I see no problem with that.

            The otherkins, however? JFC, that is so stupid. If you think you’re the reincarnation of a rabbit, an elf, or an anime character, then you need to get professional help, ASAP.

          2. Totally. If someone wants to be called he/she, I will humor them to their face. If you have a full beard and want to be referred to as “her” when you’re not in the room, personally speaking… no. And the otherkin are mentally ill, no doubt about it. I’ve always wondered if they believed themselves to be a glass of orange juice, and I drank them, would that be murder? >_>

        2. Also, apparently gays are suuuuper misogynistic. Because Rose McGowan and a bunch of other homophobes said so. Homophobes with vagina’s who are therefore magically immune to being wrong or criticized. Oh wait, no that would be retarded.

        1. Sleazy people with sociopathic tendencies and a huge guilt/martyr complex (the patriarchy made me whore myself out!) tend to try that crap. Nothing wrong with being a slut, or even a depraved slut; a whore on the other hand? You’re going to get judged, because you could be working an ordinary job that doesn’t require you to sell yourself. And no, for anyone out there who think the problem is the John’s – supply and demand does not hand wave away the stigma of choosing to be a whore. I’m actually pro-whoring, so long as it’s regulated and done so openly. Been in the modern context? It’s bad, it’s degrading and the people who engage in it “independently” tend to be the nastiest sort of low rent trash. /2cents

        2. Ew, she’s from “Smalbany”, and she went to Boston and acts like her life is SO hard, yeah, that sounds just about like every “special snowflake” with zero talent or ambition I’ve run into in my time in that area. NYS is kind of a hole.

  2. Nice response and considering what else is going on today we can confirm sexism exists in the industry because MSM isn’t gonna write about harassment Brad endures tonight…

    Keep it up man!

      1. Did you see how she put out the call for white knights saying “Will the industry keep quiet about this!”
        Look who came up in their horses and XXL size armour. Arthur Chu and Jim Sterling. Probably some other jabronis as well.

        1. I would say look at this walking damsel in distress trope but these people seek out controversy and then cry for help…

      2. “Their talent, hard work, and merit determine how successful they are. Not their politics. Not who they are friends with. Not whether they’re a man or a woman. Not what color they are. Talent. Hard work. Merit.”

        Learn it. Live it.”

        Wise words from Mr. Wardell.

    1. They might, but if they do, they’ll lie their asses off about it and claim he’s the one who harassed HER. Kind of like the Eron thing, actually…

  3. Penicillin Penny, is super good at manipulating people too.

    I’m guessing her almost 4 grand a month Patreon isn’t enough anymore for her trust fund eunuch. Time for her to start more drama and then play the martyr. Those mooncalves eat that crap up. In another day or two she will be over 5 grand and well on her way to 6.

  4. I wanted to bang my head on the desk when she was going on about ‘progressive media’. That’s the problem, journalism has gone from facts to push this ideology, agenda. opinion.

    One thing I love about theralphretort is I get to read stuff that Ralph doesn’t even put his opinion on. Just a dump of info and you read it and form your own opinion. There’s none of this “you should think this” crap, just things like ‘here’s a transcript of what people said. Have a think about it’. I know Ralph is biased as fuck but at least he provides info. If something looks like a hit piece it’s because that person has been shitty and there’s evidence.

    Also good on her for showing her stupidity by calling the Escapist biased because they dared put pro gg voices alongside the anti. Showing two sides is called neutrality. She and Sterling deserve each other.

  5. Lol fuck Zoe and her whole brigade
    What she did to Brad Wardell today was nothing short of a smear campaign

  6. “You end up with people who care about being someone who “is in the games industry” more than they care about working in that industry effectively or contributing anything meaningful to it.”

    40 keks.

  7. She spends her entire time looking for people to attack over the most tenuous of links to Muh-soggy-knees. She is a little bundle of spite looking for things to ruin. I still am not understanding why idiots believe her shit. As soon as someone posts a pre-emptive censorship attempt and tells people NOT to read anything about her, that should ring massive fucking alarm bells. Censorship is a tool used by the guilty. Honest people don’t censor things. When are people gonna wake up to her bullshit. I only ever mention her in stuff like this. Otherwise i don’t give her the airtime, or my time.

  8. I haven’t even finished and I caught 3 lies.
    She memorizes people’s IP addresses? Bullshit.
    The wizardchan raid was MADE UP.
    The nudes weren’t leaked by anyone but herself.

    A woman harassed her? But she said there are no women in gamergate. That means nongamergaters harass her too? Maybe she should quit being such a horrible person.

    1. More lies: She claims that Brad HIRED Shredded Moose. All Brad did was ask SH to send him a resume. Not the same thing as hiring.

      She also claimed it was because of a comic that SM did showing her biting someone’s dick off. The problem is that SM removed the comic off his Tweeter feed before he even talked to Brad, so even if Brad had checked out his Tweets, he wouldn’t have seen the comic. Brad didn’t even know about the comic until the day ZQ contacted him.

      Finally, the comic did not feature any nudity or visible sex acts, and was done as satire, not porn. That is not revenge porn. Revenge porn is when an ex lover publicly posts nude photos without the subjects’ consent. This comic does not meet those qualifications, and since her nude photos were made for viewing on the internet as a paid model (thus implying consent), they do not count as revenge porn either.

      At this point, every word she says is a lie, including “and” and “the”.

        1. It was a porn site best described as “discount suicidegirls”. And I cant for my life understand how people who take pictures for that site even comes up with the deluded idea about claiming it was “leaked pictures”.

          When pictures are online they do not need to leak online. They are already there.

  9. Goddamn, it’s fucking amazing how she’s able to get away with this shit.

    How are her followers so damn blind? She is clearly manipulative and disingenuous. Anything you say that she doesn’t like turns into the worst thing ever in her eyes, especially if it’s true and she doesn’t want anyone else to hear it.

    1. She is a woman, so you must Listen and Believe her. If you don’t you’re a woman hating misogynist that is plotting to rape every woman in gaming until they leave, and is also worse than 52 Hitlers and 27 Dane Cooks

  10. Looks like she needs more of that life sustaining attention, as well as a new way to keep the Patreon donations rolling in – she not only started this shit storm, but she started some bullshit drama with Brad Wardell as well.

    Around November 1, Shredded Moose told Brad that he was an artist, and Brad responded by letting him know that his company is looking at resumes. No other contact between them occurred on Twitter. Now, a month later, ZQ accused Brad of hiring SM on the basis of a comic he posted months ago showing ZQ biting someone’s dick off. However, by the time Wardell had responded to SM, the comic was taken down, so even if Brad had went through SM’s Tweet history, he wouldn’t have seen it.

    Of course, this didn’t stop ZQ from accusing Brad of endorsing “revenge porn” (WTF? Now they’re redefining that too?) or of hiring Shredded Moose (since when is asking for a resume considered automatically hired?). Even better, Jim Sterling got in on the dogpiling. Despite the fact that Jimothy is the last person to be sticking their nose in this, he couldn’t resist wagging his finger, showing off his moral superiority, and taking the opportunity to boost his Patreon donations. The diarrhea icing on the shit cake was when those dimbulbs tried to use a sexual harassment suit against him as ammo, even though the woman who accused him of sexual harassment publicly recanted and wrote him a letter of apology!

    The best part is that ZQ was the one that kept Tweeting at Brad, yet she told him “to never contact me again!”. I guess if you can harass someone with actually harassing them (as the SJWs have defined harassment now), then I guess you can tell someone that you went out of your way to contact to not contact you.

    Next week: ZQ goes to Brad’s house, breaks into his bedroom, and screams at Brad: “STOP STALKING ME!”

    1. What can you exppect from people who have no life. They actually don’t and every other thing they say on Twitter proves it. For instance, following a link to her twitter from one of the comments, the most recent one at the time of writing reads:”it’s 4am and I’m writing an article on punk and games what am I doing with my life”. Better late than ever to have an existential crisis, eh?

      In any case,all they do have, is this little bubble world they built around themselves and others like them, because no sane person would want to associate with people like this. So, when reality comes calling, they fight as hard as they can to preserve their Fantasy Land™, because real life is too hard when you have zero qualities,not to mention it’s too much work for them to actually acquire qualities.

  11. “This is worse than the Wizardchan raid” i.e. that one alleged phone call that everyone on Wizardchan denied taking part in.

  12. Well now it’s clear you absolutely have to go to E3, and try to go to PAX as well.

    It’s just hilarious because its so obvious you never would have even considered it if they didn’t bring it up and start lying about you. What idiots.

  13. These indie-hipster shills will quickly learn, should they get their way, the price of pressing the imbecilic agenda and how shifting the focus away from entertainment and what the consumer wants to your own self aggrandizing, masturbatory work. Lives and careers in pieces… it will just also deal horrible damage to the industry – which they frankly don’t give a fuck about because to them, gaming isn’t important. They are shallow, pathetic children who will move from one platform to the next, so long as it makes them money and feeds their ego.

    Also, I go a major laugh out of reading that facebook post, considering every word of it is a soundly disproved lie. And that INSANE, pseudo-intellectual blog post… someone has been talking to the Queen of Con-Artistry and is trying super hard to stay relevant, no? The parade of terrible human beings just never ceases.

  14. Had to giggle with the new Arthur Chu and Zoe Quinn articles being published so they can repeat the same misinformation they previously repeated about gamergate.

    Never ceases to amaze me how they so much like to hear from a Twine hobbyist (who sucks at writing stories) and a former neo-nazi as their best faces forward… These people have no shame.

  15. A pathological liar through and through. Kinda makes me wonder how she got turned into a saint, though, because she doesn’t even seem like a charismatic person at all.

  16. Zoe Quinn, like Brianna Wu, is certifiably cookoo…and that’s no exaggeration. The funniest thing about GG is that so many news outlets take them at their word when any simple background check reveals everything you need to know.

  17. She’s worried about someone bringing a gun or knife? Isn’t she the one who claimed to have stabbed someone in the face? People need to be protected from her.

  18. The LW circus continues: The Guardian (surprise, surprise) wrote another article letting her once again spin the same tired “GamerGate is stalking me! In fact, they’re hiding in my vagina RIGHT NOW!” narrative.

    Judging from the top photo in the article, the only AAA development she’s been doing lately was on her chest.

  19. Ralph, could you please expose the IGN morons and everyone else who contributed to this video?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E47-FMmMLy0

    We have some expected ones like Schafer and Sessler, but people must know to boycott IGN Egorapor and everyone else drinking the kool aid.

    I must apologize for posting this out of topic, but I deem it important enough.
