I have always been a firm believer that everyone deserves a second chance in life. And that you should be able to forgive people for their mistakes. But you have to draw the line somewhere, right? Because let´s face it. Some people just never learn, care or change for the better. So when i heard that Ian Miles Cheong (Editor in Chief of Gameranx) made an apologize to #GamerGate and Gamers for his past slurs and slanders.

I was somewhat doubtful about his intentions to be honest. Because i have seen quite a few crazy rants by Cheong since September last year. And i´m talking about everything from racist to really stupid tweets. Call me paranoid, but i find it rather hard to belive that you would change your team colors from SJW to a #GamerGate supporter over a night.

Ian Miles Cheong has said and stated many questionable things in the past.

Sure, some people would probably think that it´s a good thing that Cheong has come to his senses and all that. But many #GamerGate supporters (and fellow Gamers) has also pointed out that just because they have accepted Cheong´s apologize, it doesn´t mean that they have to trust him. One might also wonder what Cheong is after? And why he even apologised to Gamers and #GamerGate in the first place?

That´s the 1 million dollar question…

Yes, i have read Cheong´s “What Games mean to me” blog post. But why did he have this sudden change of heart now? Because i bet that he diden´t just wake up one day and think that it´s time to switch teams, right? It´s more likely that he realized that the team that his been supporting since day 1 is losing (team SJW). And who want´s to be in a team that´s losing? I don´t know, it smells really fishy if you ask me.

And it´s kind of hard to turn the blind eye to all the things that Cheong has said and done in the past as well. I mean, just take a look at some of these pictures for example:

ian miles cheong twitter rant

Cheong´s tweet speaks for itself really.

ian miles cheong ethics

These were Cheong´s thoughts on ethics in game journalism back in October last year.

ian-miles-cheong-toxic-gaming community

Yes, blame your behavior on the toxic gaming community and “Toxic Gamers”.

ian miles cheong gamergate rape

Ian Miles Cheong´s gamergate rape rant.

ian miles cheong racist tweets

Cheong has made quite a lot of racist tweets like this in the past.

So what do you guys/girls think? Have Cheong changed for the better? Or his he just pulling our noses? And should we accept his apologises and forgive him?
