Considering that I know how law works, perhaps you should do some more reading on how it does actually work. See, when a group/individual/etc is named in an on-going investigation, even if innocent they're considered "part of the investigation" this is the standard MO in all FOIA/privacy IO/etc requests. Oh, there is most likely an investigation--after all, there's at least two people who attempted to swat someone...they individuals who attempted such are SJW's and anti-gamergate.
Putting yourself in the shoes of the FBI, you'd want to eliminate GG from your enquiries first. Hence the open investigation.
That much if obvious. However, the original statement that "gamergate did it" boils down to FUD, much like the original article.
The Artists Bay?
What about one with deals with companies but where you either have to share up to a ratio of say n:1 (n=10 or 20 or whatever, hence fix their distribution) or pay say "more than the average" to not be forced to do that?
With money going in being distributed to those who contributed their work (maybe over number of downloads but then again I guess people would cheat.. so - Yeah. Maybe not a good system after all?)
Sure there must be a way to charge a reasonable "media fee" and then provide a competitive "media access"?
Apparently the person I replied to, and the admin for sony's system is a "fucking moron" otherwise they wouldn't be in the mess in the first place right?
So your suggestion is, let's keep all of our super important stuff on a front-end facing system in the first place. After all, it works for SCADA and does no harm...oh wait..
But you can mitigate the hell out of it, I suggest air gapping.
Radar guns in most places have to be re-certified and calibrated every 30 days(I have seen 7, 14 and 21 days and 6mo). In Canada it's rare for that defense to work, in the US not so much. Also, the officer is required to log the gun and serial number in their notes. That one gets them quite oftent.
That however isn't what the original statement was about though, now was it? It was about gamergate being behind the threat, to which there is no proof. Unless of course you have evidence of it.
So, you've got an anonymous person. And that equates to gamergate how? Right. Thanks for proving my point so clearly.
Considering that anyone with a cellphone can make a threat, that would be pretty much it. Since you can't actually provide proof that it's gamergate it boils right back to what it originally was. A singular person, mostly likely an anonymous singular person who was doing it for whatever reason. Considering that there's several tweets showing anti-gg making the threats, and members of gnaa(who also are prominent members of anti-gg), I guess that answers where all those constant threats are coming from right?
So all the threats were fake? No one threatened to shoot up a school (you know, the very reason the FBI is involved).
You mean the threat that was classified as non-credible?
Funny how many people in gamergate are libertarian-left. I guess when something doesn't fit your narrative, it's always right wingers...except when you're wrong.
So you are surprised that games manufacturers advertise on gaming journalism websites?
You're welcome. Funny how my original comment is "off topic" in demanding proof. I guess the SJW's are out in force, since they can't dispute my statements.
The FBI seems to think there is enough evidence to start an investigation.
Really? It seems to me having read the original information on it, that there's information in some investigation, somewhere, with regards to gamergate. The original FOIA request was a blanket term for "gamergate" and if you think that qualifies as "gamergate did it" there's something seriously wrong in your reasoning.
Nothing. This is just unadulterated clickbait.
Welcome to modern media, or as "the media moves more towards gawker, vox, etal." Quality reporting at it's very finest.
