    After contemplating everything I've read in the past few days, I think this type of journalism is placating to the current climate and is basically absurd.

    Don't jump to conclusions until you know the facts. Sensationalist opinion pieces have far too much impact on our decisions.

    Maybe he's a piece of shit, but perhaps he's not.

    You know who is a proven piece of shit?

    Weinstein.
    It’s important to remind ourselves that we are in the current outrage generation; people actively seek entertainment train wrecks as a form of escape. Back in my day, an arcade with samsho or metal slug was an escape. Now people want to see real pain and suffering, because it makes them feel better about their own miserable lives.

    We should actively try to elevate ourselves above this retarded TMZ millenial shit. Let these accusation reveals be the litmus test for who the morons are.

    These stories are not going to stop until there is financial repercussions.
    The problem is that people would normally sue for defamation, libel, etc... All that would do now is fuel the victim culture.

    The only way it's going to stop is when everyone is required to wear sunglasses that make everyone look like the aliens from They Live.

    Although I'm sure there will be the select few who would think, let me quote Paris Hilton "that's hot!"

    Harvey will come out unscathed. They are suing his company. Even if the company is stripped of assets, Harvey will be fine.

    It's a stupid lawsuit and a waste of NYAG resources.

    To go a little further, it's ironic AF that Eric Schneiderman is preaching that any transfer of assets in the Weinstein Company should not unjustly enrich those complicit in the acts of Harvey Weinstein.

    a) this move pressures TWC to enter settlement agreements with potentially false accusers looking to make a quick buck.
    b) most of these cases aren't going anywhere because the accusers probably don't have real evidence beyond their word against his. Harvey didn't admit that he raped anyone. He just said "sorry you feel this way" or "I didn't think it was the same as you did." I mean, we have real rape cases like Brock Turner who was literally caught in the act. He had no defense of his actions. Harvey has a ton of defenses, and it doesn't help that some of his accusers are completely not trustworthy (Rose McGowan).
    c) If I am defending Harvey in court, to a jury, I am going to press on the fact that the victims didn't go to the cops, but did all their accusing on Twitter or Reddit and then sat back for the thumbsup/karma/likes.

    This will be kind of like the OJ case where the criminal case comes up empty because there is nothing there, and the civil cases give the defendants big judgments that never get paid.

    Well then, "classic" N-G.com drama was way ahead of its time (Makismo, DriftkingEX, Wizkid et. al.).

    Truth


    What a long, strange trip it's been. And still we roll down this baffling road, missing those who have left us. Daisuke Jigen, Sifl, SNK4EVER, Nightmare_Tony, Boog, Zero Satori. Gone but not forgotten.

    I'd assume that this isn't all that different from previous decades. It's not like we didn't have tabloids in the '70s, '80s, and '90s. In the '90s we had shit like The Maury Show and Dr. Phil, which was just a thinly veiled version of Maury. And even before that, I'm sure that neighborhood gossip filled that void. The difference today is that many people who otherwise wouldn't have a voice now do, due to social media. That said, I think the "outrage generation" thing is mostly overblown. Very few people actually have a voice of following with any real impact, despite social media.
