I honestly thought that the whole thing with #GamerGate couldn’t possibly get any worse. I was wrong, And that i had to learn the hard way last night.
Because apparently, there´s a Twitter bot called “GG auto blocker“(created by Randi Harper Aka “Freebsdgirl”), which have added a lot of people (and even companies) to a block list on internet.
And we just happen to be on that list (for some odd reason). Because as far as i know, we haven´t harassed or threaten to hurt (or kill) anyone.
And funny enough, even KFC is on that list (among +10K others). And it seems like IGDA (International Game Developers Association) is the master mind behind all of this.
But from what i’ve have learned so far. It´s enough that you mention or write about #GamerGate, and you automatically end up on that block list.
Whatever happened to freedom of speech? Just saying…And i bet that the next step will be to silence people by boycotts, threats and hacker attacks.
So, yeah. Things just turned really ugly, up close and personal.
