Message to all GamerGaters, some crap said about our opposition is wrong, it should stop

For the record, I'm pro-GamerGate, but there are some things said about anti-GamerGaters (or, as they prefer, those opposed to GamerGate) that are not true and need to not be repeated since, to date, there is no evidence WHATSOEVER to validate the claims.

First off, ARTHUR CHU HAS NEVER BEEN PROVEN TO HAVE INCITED BOMB THREATS.

Fine, he made a cryptic Tweet about "It's ends tonight" and later that day a bomb threat happened, but correlation does not equate causation. No one deserves to be accused of a crime without actual proof of their guilt, and there is nothing that anyone could bring before a court of law that would implicate him in such acts.

I don't agree with many things he says, but I won't smear his name with false charges, and neither should anyone else.

Second, THERE IS NO PROOF RANDI HARPER EVER SOLD HER OWN CHILD FOR METH.

Seriously, NONE. Even Milo in that series of Breitbart exposes was never able to prove that, and despite all the stuff that Harper has been proven capable of doing, even I think it's horrifying to suggest a mother could sell her own child for drugs based on no other evidence than simply not liking them.

Also, let's give Randi Harper some credit, she had the honor and humanity to defend Mercedes Carerra against extremely disgusting sexist remarks despite being opposed to her ideologically, as you can see in the below GamerGhazi thread, and I personally thanked her because, despite my many reservations about Harper's intentions otherwise, that was an honorable act, she deserves your thanks.

Finally, this is just a general olive branch I'm handing to those opposed to GamerGaters. I do have a consicence, and regardless whatever ideology I believe in, I believe in honesty at the end of the day, so I will not defend blatant libel or slander like the BS I refuted above, and if GamerGate is serious about giving the slightest damn about "ethics", then no one needs to resort to character assassination and defamation that has not the slightest bit of truth to it.

We can disagree with people opposed to GamerGate based on the merits of their positions, but resorting to vile character assaults based on lies and baseless hearsay is just disgusting, and I personally refuse to engage in such, and hope no one, regardless of their ideology, does as well.
