Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

You sure you wanna let 1 company own your entire internet access?

What the hell do you think having an ISP is like right now?

Where I live, there is only one ISP. That's how it is in the US. There are very few markets with multiple options.
