On Recent Harassment of Game Developers

The IGDA Board of Directors has released the following statement:

“Over the last several weeks, game developers and affiliates have been the subject of harassment and ‘doxxing’ attacks, including threats and posting of home addresses.  While we support diverse viewpoints and healthy debate on the issues within our industry, we condemn personal attacks such as these which are not only morally reprehensible, but also illegal in many countries.  We call on the entire game community to stand together against this abhorrent behavior.”

    I agree this is abhorrent behavior. However, both parties have been engaging in a childish performance and also committing doxxing and DDoSing attacks. The actions are not excusable by either group. Those who are in positions of journalists, developers, etc… that are engaging in these activities too should also be reprimanded.
