Shameless plug: 

"Dear Aggrieved and Beleaguered Old-Sk00l Gamers"

- On the defamation and dissemination of private correspondence of a female indie-game-dev by her ex-boyfriend, leading to a mass harassment campaign against the woman;

- On another male indie-game-dev having had his twitter and web accounts hacked after having posted support for that indie-game-dev;

- On Anita Sarkeesian's latest Tropes video that recently evoked death threats against her and her family, messages that included her home address;

- On hacks taking down the Playstation network, and bomb threats levied against an airport, forcing a plane carrying the President of Sony Entertainment to be diverted;

- On a third indie-game-dev who, having no relation to the first chick whatsoever, yet for reasons unknown, had a harasser(s) call the police, resulting in a SWAT raid upon his business while he was present (video of event included)...

So I offer a stupid blog post discussing these events:

Just finished a working rough draft about the Senate Free Flow of Information Act of 2013. This is the press shield bill, a proposed law that would give journalists a presumed 'shield' from prosecutor or judicial inquiry by subpoena. But it won't. A kind of bone Obama thew to reporters after revelations of spying against the Associated Press that isn't even worth a dog's time to chew. It's really bad.

23,800 words; 71 pages. Whew!
