Reanimated piece of garbage crawls out of sewer vowing revenge:

Initially, Yiannopolos will be the company's main talent. "I'm the proof of concept," he said, but added that he hoped to eventually expand the company. "The thing about me is that I have access to a talent pipeline that no one else even knows about. All the funniest, smartest, most interesting young YouTubers and all the rest of them who hate feminism, who hate political correctness. This generation that's coming up, it's about 13, 14, 15, now have very different politics than most other generations. They love us. They love me, and I'm going to be actively hunting around for the next Milo."

Yes, I find it very easy to believe that he has ready access to a pipeline of 13-15 year old boys.
Dave, in the best farms anywhere, farmers will always have the problem that you cannot control everything, especially when dealing with living creatures. There is no perfection, mammals have intrinsic intelligence and individual motivation. In the best of worlds, they will sometimes follow their desires, or the fence will have a weakness, or they will injure themselves or each other, or catch a disease. Good farmers deal with these problems as they arise, and expect they will occasionally arise. But there has to be some sense of balance, and that is what you lack. You identified two of your own desires - an evenly foraged pasture and no fencing - and have responded to them by creating an abnormal and cruel device to suit your desires. You don't care about your animals' comfort, not about giving them as normal a life as possible on a farm, you are blasé when they die or escape or get ill. This makes your path forward little better than factory farming.
Well, it's not really polite to talk about the online radicalization of white men. Also they're totally joking, and it's totally all just irony and trolling.
So you guys are biased as hell against my goat system just based upon your own  uninformed speculation. You have no appreciation for the experimental process involved in creating something new for rabbits - a mobile colony which I'm not sure has ever been done by anyone anywhere.   And you are freaking out over my loss of a piglet which was an honest mistake due to brand new experimental systems.

So not only do you guys suck at science yourselves, but you are total hypocrites because you accuse me of sucking at science while committing even worse scientific misdeeds than I do.

In short, you are complete assholes.

And it's good that I'm finding this out. Because 11 years ago I was under the impression that people with advanced science degrees were generally decent human beings.  Boy was I wrong!
Oh boy.

I wonder if there is a way to convey to you just how pathetic all that sounds.

Perhaps if you imagined someone else saying those things to you?
To be fair, when the gamergate debacle originally broke I just thought it was attention-seeking from mediocre online media personalities on both sides of the debate. But when you look at it in retrospect it was part of a right-wing shitfit about how the media is corrupt because they don't overwhelmingly approve of the Right's media consumption choices. Strikes me more and more that gamergate and the subsequent "Sad Puppies" bullshit with the Hugo Awards was a test run for the Breitbart strategy used in the election.
