2016-06-26 04:32:49 LambdaComplex TimeDoctor: Nah, rewind just a _little_ bit more. What did they do to get blocked, exactly?

2016-06-26 04:40:11 @TimeDoctor also the user that joined earlier that I banned was named "cuck" which is a term that harassers from various forums use to attack their victims. Easy to identify and ban.

2016-06-26 04:55:31 @TimeDoctor it's hilarious that some of them say to use ZTM's spearmint fork of ioquake3 instead of
2016-06-26 04:56:41 @TimeDoctor I love if people use ioquake3 forks, and especially if they're from friends.
Gamergate is a movement dedicated to fighting for ethics in (gaming) journalism and against censorship and the politicization of (gaming) media and games. It arose after several corruption scandals in the gaming media, attacks on the gamer identity and attempts by the gaming media and "cultural critics" to force a political ideology down the throats of gamers.
