GamerGate cabals[edit]

Through AC and its AE, every GamerGate-tagged articles have become perfect examples of WP:cabal. Any meaningful discussions are heavily censored by a core group of gatekeepers prioritize punishment of any trace of wrongthink. These gatekeepers are doing this at absolutely any cost and their drive is simply to cabalize the topic; it does not serve the interest of Wikipedia in the long run, and breaks the spirit of WP:Pillars. With little oversight, AC has even allowed the AE enforcement of GG rules to be applied to even loosely-related articles, those which gatekeepers see fit to their own views. AC might want to have a closer look at the imposed AE rules, and specifically at how rigorously they are applied in practice. (talk) 12:29, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Unless you're a logged out editor or also use a different IP range, you've not had any problems yourself. GG applies to any related edits in any article, even if the majority of the article isn't covered by sanctions. If you want something done, you'll have to provide chapter and verse with diffs and probably bring a case. Doug Weller talk 15:29, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
