Just type your stuff into Notepad instead of Word. No text formatting there.
I use One Office or whatever that suite is. The program works, but the transfer can get quite nasty when fonts and formatting becomes involved. Next time I'll do just that!

You could also use Remove Format on the forum if you'd prefer to use Office. It works if you know how and when to use it.

Also, I had to fight the urge to explain why that problem happens. Let it just be said that some technologies are needlessly complex.

To be fair that's this whole thread in a nutshell.

Y'know, after reading a good chunk of this, I'm surprised it's gotten to 64 pages. I mean it's obvious the few people talking in here aren't going to agree or budge on their opinions, so the thread almost seems pointless.

Honestly, it's just a back-and-forth that's more amusing to read than participate in (though I've never been partial to debates lol).

I've pointed this out several times throughout the whole thing but these guys seem to content to keep fighting an issue of which neither side will budge in their stance.

This thread always disappoints. Just a bunch of people shout at each other why they are right. And all over fuckibg video games and years old internet drama. Get a life you plebes.

You know this is not the case. I see Shiobear's trollface is warranted.

"Oh come on that's not true" is your only argument ?

"attacks included doxing (researching and broadcasting personally identifiable information about an individual) and hacks of her Tumblr, Dropbox, and Skype accounts; she was also subjected to threats of rape and death threats. The release of personal information led Quinn to flee her home; she explained that "I can't go home because they have been posting around my home address, often with threats attached to it."

these are just a couple articles that go into detail. I can provide a few more if you'd like :3

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...-video-game-industrys-growing-pains-go-viral/

So now that I've shown you evidence, I'd like a response. What was that ya'll said about extremism ?

Oh and 'video game journalism' is and will forever be a shill. How do you think games like Call of Duty, Battlefield and Skyrim get great reviews despite being awful ? (Yes, your precious skyrim is shit tier, watered down RPG. I bet a neckbeard like you has put at least 200 hours into it unmodded) it's because the publishers work hand in hand w/ the already corrupt entertainment journalists.

I guess I can't expect much from lelreddit fuckboys other than trollfaces.

Sarkeesian's opinions are worthless. What are her credentials? Professional gaming blogger? lol. She's entitled to her opinion, too bad it doesn't fucking matter.

Essentially what I've run into is, 'GamerGate is primarily composed of men who want to hate on women and don't want them in gaming!' with no supporting evidence of that premise.

Yeah, I'm sure Quinn has received a few angry messages. She also threw Wizardchan under the bus and posted UNDER HER OWN IP ADDRESS alongside other people from different websites. She also took part in 'Helldumping'. There's also that GameJam thing. And the part where she sunk TFYC. Her Tumblr was "hacked" under stange means where someone offered it on 4Chan, and their response was satisfactory. It was so strange they even went on you investigate when it came from, meaning it was either a troll or Quinn herself who tried to make this happen, in either case, it's a false flag. She also files a gag order under physical abuse against Eron Gjoni. Funny, that. Additionally, she also bailed on a discussion with Huffington Post because Hotwheels, the administrator of 8Chan, would be there to counter her bullshit.

There's a lot more for this person, but given how many times she has lied at the expense of someone else is staggering and calls into question the validity of her claims and statements. Is GamerGate the evil entity she makes it out to be? More than likely, not. It's almost like this whole narrative is *gasp* a lie! Nevermind it has actually done something.

Keep on trolling, mango. Others might be content to say I'm refusing to budge, using circular logic, etc -- but I think it's pretty apparent the character of these people who have lead the anti-GG charge and ultimately failed.

The sequel to the game that Neogaf banned from discussion for being "toxic" and NISA (the publisher) heavily censored beyond the interest of the niche audience it was aimed at has just been announced. Behold, I give you Criminal Girls 2.

Believe it or not its actually a dungeon crawler. Why they don't advertise its actual main gameplay(instead of its minigames) is beyond me. Although I suppose no one was actually buying the game for the gameplay anyways. I'm not particularly interested in the game, but it worries me that it gets censored and banned from discussion on major sites.

ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID?

Seriously, you're like a fucking holocaust denier, indoctrinated and shutting out the overwhelming and obvious proof that's out there.

This is all kinds of rofl.

And..it is. What've you done to prove otherwise ?

*completely ignores the evidence I've provided*

She also threw Wizardchan under the bus and posted UNDER HER OWN IP ADDRESS alongside other people from different websites.
Lol, posting edited screenshots of random anon posters spouting here-say. "It couldn't of been any of US! Some of us suffer from social anxiety, w-we wouldn't be able to carry out such vicious attacks!"

Also, one anon mentions how people who have a good job, partners, a seemingly 'good life' etc. should be criticized for being depressed ? So do any of the morons in that thread know how depression works ? It's a mental condition, not a little pouty mood everyone gets when they get out of a relationship. Geeze, no wonder you're so misinformed..look at where you get your information from. :D

So, you'll have to explain...what weight do any of these links have ? Oh and the helldump thing...yeah, a lot of people read those. It was cruel and terrible stuff, but it was still stuff everybody read out of morbid curiosity. What proof do you have of her actually participating ? Oh right, none. Just a shitty tweet from a gamergate propaganda account cherry picking her tweets out of context. Look at yourself, you're obsessed with some random game developer who's not a threat to anybody. Are you a perfect person ? What if I started doing a lot of research about the person YOU really are ? What if I started digging up YOUR past, are you going to tell me you've never lied or made mistakes ?
So it's 100% ok to harass this girl, call her house and leave rape threats. Lead a smear campaign against her for..what exactly ? Answer this question right now. What are you even campaigning for ?

@Kellie: As a Jew, I ask that you don't draw comparisons between GamerGate and the terrible event that was the Holocaust. Thanks.

@Bluntz: Sigh. Well, I did say she recieved messages but what I'm trying to explain is that she has a history of false flags and harassment, so when she makes claims as to receiving threatening calls or pictures of dead babies or child porn with her name photoshopped onto it, I'm going to take her claims with several grains of salt.

Again, I do not endorse harassment, and I do not encourage you to harass her. On top of that, your side of the debate keeps bringing her up, and you're saying I'm obsessed? You're supporting the idea that GG is just about harassing women, nevermind GG proponents receiving doxxes and threats. Funny thing about this thread: you guys are awfully quick to sling out insults against your opponents. What does that say about your side?

At this point what's been said can only be repeated for the umpteenth time.

Denial is denial, buddy. You don't let denialists stay comfortable.

Kellie you really just need to stop, just stop, all you are doing is getting yourself worked up and angry for nothing now, you keep saying you won't come back into this thread, but you still do, you aren't going to gain anything or ever change Zuriak's mind on this, right now you are just being a full blown troll, there is no need to descend to such petty levels and insults and accusing people of being holocaust deniers.

You should never compare the whole "GamerGate denial that Zuriak is apparently displaying to holocaust denial." I don't really care if Zuriak is in denial about what GamerGate does and doesn't do, I don't really care about GamerGate in general but really!? you'd really resort to such pettiness?

There are much better ways to spend your evening.
