Fired Guild Wars dev rails against the community (shades of GamerGate)

All this stuff going on with comicsgate, gamersgate and hollywierd seem like they're all the same and coming from the same place(s).

Though I've a multitude of opinions and feels about a lot of the shit going on with these, my take away is:

'the pendulum is swinging back, and its going to crashback as hard as it was pushed out in the first place'

 

Its like the concept of slow and steady has been completely lost on everyone.

You forgot the "Congratulations," ahead of "you played yourself." xD

I have a feeling that most companies that are of significance won't be willing to take the risk. It would be a pretty easy call for most HR and legal teams to decide against it. I mean if I have two or three strong candidates for a position then why would I go with one that has this black mark against them already? In most cases it would be better just hiring a skilled dev fresh out of college. No bad habits, less chance of entitlement, can offer them lower wages, and overall they are a clean slate you can build up as you see fit.

Exactly this. Bad PR is bad PR. If she's going to be anywhere near a public-facing mouthpiece, she's not going to get the position.

I just think professional Women deserve more respect than they generally get.

Not just women but professionals in general. 

 

Whilst I agree that professionals should generally garner respect, Jessica does not deserve an ounce of respect from me solely due to the way she acted. 

 

Jess, you're a professional. Act professionally instead of throwing a tantrum like my 1 year old niece does at times (and even she is quick to calm down). You had every right to avoid discussion or at the very least act in a polite and responsible manner. But nope, you had to resort to the gender card even though it had very little to do with it or even at all and act in an immature manner. Whatever it is, whether that's your ego or your perspective of "fighting the good fight", it needs to stop. You're hurting yourself and the very movement you claim to represent. 

 

I hate to say it, but people like Jessica is the reason why feminism in the 21st century has become a joke. Gone are the days where women actually stood up against legitimate discrimination and now we have people like her just playing the gender card even though it is unwarranted. I don't disagree that inequality still exists but Jessica, you're making it worse.

The only thing that needs saying about her is that the kindest thing that she could say about a man dying from Cancer is that she was glad it happened:

If she was in the UK, she would be considered unemployable by everyone, and likely jailed for hate speech for that alone.

 

I dont see how anyone can have the slightest sympathy for someone as toxic as this, she clearly deserved being fired, and anyone that would hire her for any kind of job after this is just as bad as her.

Maybe I'm blind... But where are the original Tweets that started this? It looks like his original tweet has since been deleted, as well as a couple of her immediate responses.

I cannot find the initial posts from either party. So I have a hard time "conforming" to either side because the information isn't freely available anymore.

 

And I do agree, this is pretty stupid. Social media interactions do have recourse. You MAY not be on the clock, but the way you behave reflects on your company. And it works both ways. The initial statement or the response.

 

I posted them.

How you dare!

 

If this story, and to some extent this thread, have shown something, is how how arrogant software developers (as it happens with designers in the same/other industries) can't cope with the idea that users of their software may have quite a bit of knowledge of what using the software they write is like.

To be honest, it does explain many things about the software we get...

On a similar issue, I'd like to point out how theres an Indie tablet game I absolutely love and thats also coming to steam soon.

 

Soon as I started playing it, I joined in the subreddit for it with my usual 'Wow, this game is incredible, why doesnt it have more fans yet?'. I was the most vocal and enthusiastic poster about said game, and its being developed by just one person like a lot of indie games.

 

The developer immediately began replying to my comments with kindness, and actually started asking me for gameplay advice. Lots, in fact maybe everything I've suggested to him are now, or will be upcoming features in the game, e.g:

 

- Save game option for endless mode

- Transferring saved game / progress between mobile and steam

- Keyboard bindings for skills / speed up buttons on PC that are simply touch buttons on mobile

- Nerfs to the most powerful tower, and 'air units only' mode being far too easy being fixed by adding enemy fliers that land on and disable towers

 

Mainly just QOL improvements to make the game more enjoyable to play.

 

More recently the dev came back to me and sent me a free steam code for the game just for being the most active person on the subreddit for it, which actually only costs £4 anyway:

 

https://store.steampowered.com/app/881520/Geometry_Defense_Infinite/

 

Now I'm waiting to be able to transfer my mobile save to steam as otherwise its too much grind to regain my progress (massive tech tree, dont really want to grind it all again).

 

This is how you handle customer service, not instead by calling fans 'rando asshats' for leaving feedback and suggestions. 

 

Edit - A steamy hot NSFW (now nerfed) Railgun porno (please dont be offended, this was just a meme I shared on the games subreddit that led to their nerfage).

Gee I wonder who reported me for harassment for saying the same thing about her as she said about total biscuit.

 

Though sure my post my worded a lot more strongly, but thats because in my case she's still alive, and in her case she's ranting about a man that already died from cancer.

Those tweets were really not necessary.

Keep your decency and try not to lower yourself to her level of under the belt "mud-throwing".

Honestly dont care, I hate double standards and hypocrisy and like to farm it even if it makes me look bad.

 

Plenty of other places are loving that I just did this.

Well I deleted the bookmark to this place because the "no politics" rule basically applies mostly to left-leaning people, right-leaning and reactionary circle jerk seems to be alive and well so kudos to the hypocritical and ineffectual moderation staff, off again.

Honestly that's the crappy part of this whole thing. People tend to have a bad image of feminist due to things like this when this is a small minority in a much bigger cause. I mean as someone who is for equality I find this disheartening. I mean people often only think of feminism as the extremist and not the core group or beliefs. I just wish people wouldn't make a bad name for a good cause.
