Call it justice, call it karma

Regardless, it exists. You may recall Sam Biddle as one of #GamerGate’s primary targets:

Earlier this week Gawker lost “thousands of dollars” in advertising after a poorly worded tweet was posted by one of its writers. Sam Biddle, one of the more sarcastic employees among the sarcastic throng at Gawker Media, tweeted out a joke:

    Ultimately #GamerGate is reaffirming what we’ve known to be true for decades: nerds should be constantly shamed and degraded into submission
    — Sam Biddle (@samfbiddle) October 16, 2014

He immediately followed it with:

    Bring Back Bullying
    — Sam Biddle (@samfbiddle) October 16, 2014

Naturally, the Twitterverse pounced. While the issue goes into convoluted gamergate territory, it didn’t make Gawker, the intellectual fraternity of the internet that invites people to their parties only to make them buy the booze, look good. Adobe pulled its sponsorship in response to the uproar, which was followed by multiple posts by site editors attempting to explain the situation, apologizing and admitting they “fucked up.”

Now the nerds are shaming back twice as hard.

Oh hey, the Sam Biddle on Ashley Madison story is trending in the US.

Sam Biddle had an account on Ashley Madison, but he never inhaled.

It’s okay, he was only on there for “research”. That’s a new one. He registered in 2012 and I’m sure he’ll have the well-researched expose ready any day now.
