    Default Zoe Quinn and the Quinnspiracy

    So I just learned about this quite recently and found it interesting.

    I've been following the issue through Know Your Meme (link to their article here) and it's quite the intense read.

    The gist of it, for those that don't know, is that several people are claiming that Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, did various things that were less than nice to get her game promoted. Among them being: Sleeping with various journalist, including people from Kotaku. Making use of Robin Williams death to promote her game. Lying about harassment to garner support for herself and therefore her game.


    Anyone have opinions on this?

    I don't think anyone uses KYM as a source. They're more of a collection of sources - they collect data and source it. Similar to Wikipedia.

    But yeah, the reason I find the KYM article about it relevant is that it provides evidence to everything mentioned in the form of screen captures, sound files, references, etc... Everything said on the KYM is supported with some sort of external source.

    At that point, it's as trustworthy as anything that congregates sources. But always keep a skeptical mind with everything you read. Just because KYM, Wikipedia, some random forum post, etc... says something and provides a source doesn't mean you should blindly accept it as truth. Use it as a platform to form your own opinion and/or begin researching the matter on your own.

    Exactly! Apoca needs some loving. He'll give Depression MMO a 5/5 on the alpaca scale.
