As long as gamergate exists it will be hard to discuss some of these issues since some people will be scared of sharing there opinion.This problem may exist even after gamergate doesn't exist anymore.I think there needs to be a way to moderate discussion on the internet so it doesn't get out of control like what has happened with gamergate and a few other internet related incidents in the past, but this will be very hard to do.
It's near impossible to moderate it. The sheer volume is too much. We need to instead look at our culture and ask why we have such negative elements within it.
Something else to consider is that our problems are causing huge waves right now:
I think as long as the rules are strict enough on certain sites like twitter people won't be able to use these sites for nefarious reasons. I also think one issue with gamergate that is still affecting it today is that the sites or people that helped influenced and control the movement are so powerful and really organized they can push there opinions(that may be dangerous at times) around the web with little to no repercussions.Twitter is also making it easier for these guys to push their agenda.It's impossible for anyone that doesn't believe in these guys opinions about certain subjects to take control of a movement like gamergate. There has to be something that can prevent this. The more I think about it not supporting the gamergate movement may not help as much as I thought it would but I think if the people within the gamergate movement that don't care about social issues and etc(but journalist ethics for example) were able to show these people an sites that it is not okay for them to do what they are doing currently and these sites/people won't be able to control the gamergate movement that well.They will have to be really organized to get rid of the sites and people controlling the gamergate movement currently.
