#34 Alexander Macris

Hello. After much soul searching I’ve decided it is time to re-release this episode. I’m certain this will cause some undue stress for some people and bring smiles to the faces of others. If it disappoints you, I’m sorry, but I think this deserves to be out there. I have not changed my stance on playing or purchasing ACKS. If I do, you’ll be the second to know.

If you enjoy this trip into Mr Hobbs’ Gamerhood give us some feedback on what you think! Since the change to the new RSS we could use some review and subscriptions. Please spread the word again and let other folks know there are new episodes and where they can find them.

  1. Thank you for posting this again. I hate the idea of putting content down the “Memory Hole” on principle alone, and I’m glad you reconsidered.

  2. I respect your feelings re: artistic integrity, and I recognize how frustrating it must have been to have decisions about your work made by a third party.

    That said, I wish you hadn’t reposted this. There are a number of things I could say – I’m sure you’ve heard most of them. But ultimately I think it comes down to this: Macris’s work in supporting Gamrgate and Milo Y served to push folks out of the public sphere. It served to marginalize folks already marginalized. And I think it’s work that’s antithetical to your values. Mr. Hobbs’s Gameborhood has always been (at least to me) about hearing from a bunch of folks, about cheering on new takes and different perspectives. But Macris’s work with Milo was designed to do the opposite.

    1. So you think it’s good to publish “new takes and different perspectives” until and unless those perspectives clash with your own. Gotcha.
