Eurogamer Censors Comments Mentioning CON Leaks To Protect Zoe Quinn
Eurogamer

Crash Override Network had a series of leaks occur that revealed that the abuse and harassment organization was involved in doxing, targeted harassment and sabotage. The leaks were covered extensively by Washington Examiner and Heat Street. Journalists have tried covering up the leaks by avoiding talking about them since it shows that co-founders Alex Lifschitz and Zoe Quinnwere  partaking in the harassment that Quinn supposedly talked out against and blamed #GamerGate for throughout 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Eurogamer was caught with their pants down when they posted up a puff piece to continue to promote Zoe Quinn and her latest project, but some of the commenters were having none of it. They began linking in articles and content in the comment section revealing Crash Override Network involved in targeted harassment, doxing and corporate sabotage.

The article was posted up on October 27th, 2016 in the early morning, and before comment moderator MrTomFTW was able to log in, users began pointing to the Crash Override Network leaks, as evident in an archive of the article before it was moderated.

However, if you check the page now, you’ll notice that Shadow Dancer’s comment and others were edited or deleted by moderator MrTomFTW. In particular, Shadow Dancer’s comment now states “*Take witch-hunts elsewhere please*”

People begin to point out to MrTomFTW that he’s actively ignoring and trying to bury the sabotage, doxing and harassment from Quinn and the rest of Crash Override Network. As you can see in the most recent archive there are a bunch of deleted comments, including MrTomFTW trying to remove his own comments where he attempted to defend Quinn and Crash Override Network.

While many of the comments are now deleted, MrTomFTW stated…

“Late to the party, but assuming it was the same GG dribble I think it was, and you all want to reassure yourself that Quinn is the real bad person and all the shit she’s received is therefore justified… Yeah take that to Reddit or start a blog or something.

 

“As the edit says, Eurogamer won’t host comments that perpetuate or support witch-hunts. Take them elsewhere.”

After realizing that debating with people in the comment section was proving fruitless since the facts were clearly stacked against him, MrTomFTW decided to just create a comment wasteland by deleting and editing many of the comments.


You can check out what some of the comments were like before MrTomFTW began heavily censoring anything that pointed out Quinn and her friends were involved in illegal activity by scoping out the imgur album.

User Kryon pointed out that the old comments were not filled with insults but simply highlighted the harassment and doxing committed by Crash Override Network, writing…

“Yep, he did the same to all of us, and not one of the comments he deleted had a single insult, threat, or any other toxic value to them, they were simply comments calling out people who doxx, harass & threaten, but it seems Eurogamer is now pro all of the above as they silence anyone who dares even mention it…. “

Just for reference, according to Patch.com, they make it known that doxing people intentionally is “always illegal”. The fact that Eurogamer would promote someone attached to an organization who clearly doxed people as part of the “opposition research” falls dangerously close to being complicit in covering up this illegal wrongdoings while also trying to hide that knowledge from the public.

Other news media outlets such as The Guardian, Birth.Movies.Death, Business Insider, Develop and CBC have also all opted to avoid even bringing up the Crash Override Network, showing clear targeted harassment and doxing, after they spent a majority of 2014 and 2015 promoting Zoe Quinn and Crash Override Network.

    I used to be a daily visitor to Eurogamer. Until one day they posted an article about Anita Sarkeesian. Having no previous knowledge of her existence, I thought she was a random high school kid who’d made a video, and Eurogamer were posting it because it was a slow news day. Which was fine by me. But I happened to scroll down to the comment section where doubts about her claims were expressed, and a link to a video was reposted by someone after it had previously been deleted. It was a thunderf00t video criticizing Anita’s claims and questioning her honesty. The discussion was civil and interesting until someone (the moderator I think) asked a guy what color he was because he thinks he must be white. This was before I knew anything about SJWs so it was somewhat shocking to see the racism. It was irrelevant to the discussion, but the guy posted his picture showing that he wasn’t white. The comment thread moved on to Quinn which introduced me to the controversy that would later become GamerGate. A few weeks later they published a piece promoting Quinn and I stopped visiting the site. The one time I did go back I saw TomFTW claiming Thunderf00t is a holocaust denier and so no links to his videos would be allowed. Haven’t bothered going back since.

    That really aucks because I love digital foundry and the work they do but Eurogamer itself is… awful.

    I’m going to have to stop reading digital foundry and unsubscribe from their channels because i can’t support a site that would allow someone to behave as Quinn does and still promote them as some kind of hero

  • Alistair

    Like I said before, it really needs something awful to happen, then the Website & MSM to cover it when & if, if it comes to court then we see won’t we bias MSM.

  • Alistair

    Now funny you mention heat street it has a problem of its own according to mundanematt the UK website Anti-regression left SJWs is turning into one.

    A Clinton supporter, and turning into SJW, the editor in chief had remove a article & replace it with her own article quoting the anima about a sport that uses boobs & butts to push other girls into a water.

    She calling it sexist and child porn. But the anima are saying the girls are 18+

    The question is Does it Really matter really, as fiction characters do not exist.

    Christ what’s the fuck wrong with these people.

  • Alistair

    Well another website to flown upon. Eurogamer is now Eurocucker.

    • I like it:

      Same cucks, different side of the pond.

    “EuroGamer” aka CorruptCucks won’t “perpetuate witch hunts”, but they sure like to perpetuate promoting blatant corruption.

    In somewhat relevant news, bribe-taking agenda-pushing censorship-crazy Reddit (remember when they deleted tons of stuff to protect a certain precious princess?) apparently had an incident where r/all/ became filled entirely with r/The_Donald/ posts. Corrupt assholes are blaming The_Donald for “hacking it with bots”, but an experienced mod of r/all/ explained why that’s impossible.

    Archive of the explanation before it got deleted: http://archive.is/qksHz

    The mod blamed the admins for doing something specific to The_Donald that clearly glitched out. The admins apparently got upset at this, and deleted that mod’s explanation. Wouldn’t want even more people to know how much Reddit manipulates public opinion, eh? The only way this incident could have occurred is if there was code specifically referencing The_Donald, which pretty much proves Reddit admins target specific sub-reddits.

    Correct me if I made any mistakes describing the situation. Just skimmed over it a few minutes ago.

    I’ve hated Eurogamer for a long time. I remember that infamous hit-piece they posted about the Wii U (‘developer inside story’ or some shit), only for actual Wii U developers to claim BS on the whole thing.

    Also, their counterpart, USGamer, called Watch_Dogs the first “truly next-gen game” in their puff-piece review. LOL.

  • bell02

    Why is Eurogamer.net supporting a known doxer like ‘cRash OverRide’? Do the advertiser know what eurogamer is doing?

    • AceOfAces_Mod

      If you are Intel, you don’t because you are busy being educated by Feminist Frequency.

    • C G Saturation

      Because they probably all slept with her and received big bucks from her boyfriend, who is probably big on letting her sleep with everybody.

  • Mr.Towel

    The moderator is clearly not a moderate.

    What I find jarring about this whole thing is this comment of his:

    “Late to the party, but assuming it was the same GG
    dribble I think it was, and you all want to reassure yourself that Quinn
    is the real bad person and all the shit she’s received is therefore
    justified… Yeah take that to Reddit or start a blog or something.

    “As the edit says, Eurogamer won’t host comments that perpetuate or support witch-hunts. Take them elsewhere.”

    “Assuming it was the same GG dribble” clearly shows they don’t bother researching, they speak without ever assuming an instance of neutrality before judging the facts, they are only interested in cherry picking facts that further their own agenda.

    Say what you will about the opposition, we don’t do this bullshit. Know thy enemy has always been the Right’s political strategy and while it might come late, it never faulted. I do read what the other side has to say I do read the authors they shower with praises, I do read their research and their ideologies.

    What these people do is just outright dishonest. Maybe that’s why they’re so prone to signal virtue, for they lack so much of them. Compensation.

      Cherry picking information is the best way to form drones, which those drones fuel agendas that are based on strange emotional decisions rather than facts.
