The FBI is investigating *opponents* of GamerGate for lying about threats and third party trolls for making other threats while the summery claims the investigation is about threats made by proponents.

That's an interesting fantasy? From TFA:
"Who or what is being investigated remains an open question."

The FBI hasn't said who they're investigating and they did not release documents relating to the investigation, so there's absolutely no basis for your claims.

And the only conceivable reason for letting someone "experience" being decapitated is because you believe them to be executioners, yet they are unaware of that fact. Otherwise, the exercise is pointless.

Right?

Of course not. Faulty logic is faulty.

The real reason is to let someone experience something that wouldn't in the real world. Wanting to understand another person's point of view doesn't make you a bad person, nor do you have to be a bad person to benefit from the experience.

Nothing in the post says that you (or anyone else in particular) is a racist. It simply says that VR could be useful in letting you experience racism.

Letting lose with a barrage of expletives based on an incorrect assumption that you're being accused of racism is... drum roll please... not respectful.

No. See, that tl;dr leaves out charming phrases like "stupid metro-sexual assholes" in an attempt to make the person I replied to sound reasonable.

It is actually quite easy to express disagreement with someone or something without resorting to childish insults. I'm doing it right now, in fact, and anyone who claims that they treat everyone with respect should be expected to do likewise.

Those that need verification prompts to exist in our society, need to seriously rethink their basic thought process and self control.

Apparently you've either never been around anyone who was drunk or you're so incompetent in your own decision making that you think drunk people make good decisions and have self control.

Loose bits sink chips.
