The event was the largest GamerGate gathering so far, with somewhere between 200 and 300 attendees. It follows a trend toward offline organising by its supporters, who up until recently have tended to congregate on social media and image boards. hosted by conservsative Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos Blamed: Salon columnist Arther Chu is responsible for encouraging his followers to find ways to eject GamerGate supporters from Local 16. Chu spent a great deal of time on Friday sending angry messages to the bar’s Twitter and email accounts, urging them to cancel the event, which he said was organised by a “hate group”. In one tweet that was seized upon by GamerGate’s meme activists, Chu cryptically said: “it ends tonight“. Gamergate controversy - Wikipedia controversy concerns sexist social media attacks in video game culture.

January 23, 2015 Wikipedia votes to ban some editors from Gamergate and gender-related articles
Online encyclopedia’s highest court votes on more than 10 editors deemed to be breaking the site’s rules amid Gamergate controversy Wikipedia’s arbitration committee, the highest user-run body on the site, has voted to ban a number of editors from making corrections to articles about feminism, in an attempt to stop a long-running edit war over the entry on the “Gamergate controversy”.
The editors, who were all actively attempting to prevent the article from being rewritten with a pro-Gamergate slant, were sanctioned by “arbcom” in its preliminary decision. While that may change as it is finalised, the body, known as Wikipedia’s supreme court, rarely reverses its decisions. Mark Bernstein, a writer and former Wikipedia editor, said that, “This takes care of social justice warriors with a vengeance — not only do the Gamergaters get to rewrite their own page (and Zoe Quinn’s, Brianna Wu’s, Anita Sarkeesian’s, etc); feminists are to be purged en bloc from the encyclopedia.”
