Trapped in a hoax: survivors of conspiracy theories speak out -

  • There is a bug with the post editor. Images pasted from other websites from your clipboard will automatically use the [img] tag instead of uploading a copy as an attachment. Please manually save the image, upload it to the site, and then insert it as a thumbnail instead if you experience this.

    The [img] should essentially never be used outside of chat.

I hope to have a fix from XF soon. I REALLY WISH THEY'D HOTFIX THIS SO I CAN REMOVE THIS NOTICE.

Wait, what is the "conspiracy theory" Wu claims he survived? As far as I am aware, receiving death threats and making gamers angry is not the same as being "trapped in a hoax." Or did I miss something?

I think the "hoax" they usually suggest is the notion that Zoe Quinn sucked Nathan Greyson's dick specifically for a good review of her game. It's a deliberate misstatement of the actual contention, that Greyson wrote positive things about the game of someone who was incidentally sucking his dick, and in general that game journos tended to cover their friends' work, even when it was shit and exclude the work of outsiders even when it was great. The later is true, but the former misrepresentation is false if only because of the "review" part, 'cos nobody ever actually reviewed Quinn's game.

How any of that applies to Wu, I'm not sure.

If I were writing an article about "surviving conspiracy theories" I'd probably write it about families of 9/11 victims getting harassed by Truthers, not a "woman" who had to read mean things on Twitter

The "conspiracy theories" in John's case are his own fabricated conspiracies of roving gangs of Nazi gamergaters roving the landscape raping and murdering women.

John's own bizarre claims are as crazy and made up as any Pizzagate conspiracy.

Wait if this guys I went a-raping with weren't Nazis then who were they?
