Even if all of this is true (it isn't; but skipping over that), her social media, financial, and email accounts have been hacked, and explicit photos revealed from that were sent to her were sent to her friends and family.

Can you maybe see how a. that sort of thing doesn't happen to men in the industry, and b. how very wrong it is to do stuff like this because of rumors of VIDEO GAME ETHICS VIOLATIONS?

Don't justify this crap. It's disgusting.

I quickly found out that the notability idiots over at Wikipedia have repeatedly chosen to target it for elimination.

They've been doing this for years, and long ago burned out my interest in contributing. I've seen 3 pages I helped create/curate get deleted. Happily 2 of the three eventually were re-created by others a year or two later, but a lot of work was destroyed. Let them have their "The free encyclopedia that anyone can edit" slogan - I'll continue to be a parasite reading without contributing unless they clean up their practices to prevent the destruction of good articles.

browse at 2+, and threads look like a coherent discussion of the issues broached in TFA.

Only if you agree with the overall tone of the thread. Moderation re-enforces the party line, and the choice of articles and/or post content are catered to generate interaction. Unpopular threads get pushed down pretty fast and hard, or (worse) are barely moderated at all.

You guys realize that slashdot is just as clickbait-y and unreasonable and targeted as Jezebel, right? The headlines here are designed to drive comments and pageviews equally as hard by leaning on the same sorts of buttons, you just don't realize it as often because the buttons they push reenforce your own viewpoints and biases.

Another flaw - using the email address as the username and then not verifying the email address prior to actual account creation has lead to me getting a number of accounts on a number of systems I have no interest in. This is probably mostly due the fact that my main email address is very simple and a bunch of people either mistakenly or idiotically keep using it instead of their own... As a matter of fact that's how I ended up with a FB account in the first place.

Your code should be more efficient!
