>And to close, if you think I have been avoiding saying “GamerGate,” I’m not, and I want to make something explicitly clear. TechRaptor has never supported GamerGate. We have never participated in GamerGate. We reported on, talked to, and were interested in the movement years ago when it began and for a decent while after it continued. We have had staff that were unequivocally supporters of GamerGate as well as involved in the various things the group has done. We have also had staff against GamerGate’s actions thinking they did more harm than good, as well as those that didn’t care, and those that saw it as a funny or sad joke. As an outlet, we have not and will not choose “sides.” We are not interested in being known as “that GamerGate site” or involving ourselves as either for or against it, whatever that may mean these days. We just want to continue to cover games as best we can and remove the political nonsense surrounding the outlet. We’ve moved on and grown into something we think is much better: celebrating gaming in all its forms.
>Update: I wanted to add a bit of clarity here, as I think some people are misunderstanding what I meant in the above paragraph. TechRaptor has not and has no plans to remove all content related to GamerGate. This is about removing poorly written and poorly argued content that covered topics we really had no business talking about in the first place. It inserted us into a debate we did not want, but we are still proud of our GamerGate coverage and for offering a voice to those that otherwise would not have spoken at all during that time. There are still plenty of GamerGate related articles on the site that do meet our editorial standards.
Interesting how he wrote so much without really saying much at all. Basically they are now distancing themselves from GG and removing any articles that might appear to have a pro GG stance. More likely any articles that aren't SJW approved.
