GamingThread Alec Holowka (Night in the Woods, TowerFall) accused of sexual assault [Update: Alec Holowka has reportedly passed away] [See staff posts/threadmarks]
Reason User Banned (A week): Inflammatory commentary suggesting a suicide as manipulative behavior.
I internalized your post as saying that we should not discuss accusations, which is happened, meant someone would drop their accusation and that would be it. No effects no ripples no dissemination. Its bad.Also an extremely bad take because might as well just shut down Reset Era because welp the gamergate chuds are just always going to do that. Maybe we should have people who moderate discussions? (Oright we do)Going to highlight a really fucking bad phrase in this paragraph. There's a reason why Zoe used her twitter to make the post and that was to make it public information that Alec, an indie developer with a good reputation, abused her. So that anyone who dealt with him also knew what he had done in the past because that shit is reprehensible and should not be tolerated in any fair society. This shit bums me out too and disgusts me. His death (And I'm assuming suicide) reeks of a manipulative behavior that I can't quite put into words right now. Alec has permanently altered the course of the #MeToo resurgence happening in games media and caused even more irreparable harm and damage to victims. It fucking sucks man.
