If this new incident had not happened I would have let the other thread go. I have no intention of continuing the fight that was going on when the other thread closed. Can we PLEASE stay on topic? Any discussion of Gamergate or the people involved is hereby banned from this thread. If you bring it up I will report the post and ask the mods to remove it and ask them to moderate the thread rather than close it. Now, can we please stay on topic and discuss the phenomena and this new event that just occurred? Thanks. The world we live in…Man has it changed. ADDENDUM! Curt Shilling, retired baseball great, congratulated his daughter on Twitter for being accepted to college and would be playing on the softball team. He was as proud as any papa could be. There were a few rude responses, like "can't wait to party with her", too which Dad replied, "I have friends in the special forces," thinking he was joking back. He cites many of the Tweets. Referred to this report: Internet Sex Crimes Against Minors: The Response of Law Enforcement and put out a plea for Internet sleuths to help identify the worst of the slime balls. And people did. Some of them were caught. Ooops! Schilling Throws Perfect Game With Response to Misogynist Trolls It's insane. It's like groping, I don't get what the jolly is, at all. These aren't 12 yr olds making prank phone calls. They are adult men acting in a very bizarre way that apparently is a behavior brought on by the phenomena of social media. I don't know how many are women so I'll just say it wouldn't surprise me if some were, or if the phenomena was expressed differently by women (more death threats, less rape threats). This comment in the Boston op-ed was worth discussion: Name and shame, sounds like the best answer to me.
