It seems like we’re witnessing the death of a community.
Editor's note: we talk in-depth about sexual misconduct and harassment in the podcast today.
Over the weekend, allegations of sexual misconduct by the owner of the popular gaming forum NeoGAF surfaced. I spent the weekend looking into the story,which turned into a lengthy examination about the last 48 hours at NeoGAF, including comments from NeoGAF's owner, the woman who raised the original allegations, and the moderators who helped run the site. Austin, Danielle, and I have complicated feelings about NeoGAF, so a podcast seemed the best way to work them out.
