I restored this article, which was deleted for being an attack page (negativity was within our rules last time I checked). She's missional, and inspired a number of news reports and op-eds. Worth keeping, although could maybe do with expansion. Balaam (talk) 17:14, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

This is a terrible article about a person that only gators and similar obsessed over. I highly doubt there will be any expansion. except for maybe if they continue in harassing her. This page should be deleted. Typhoon (talk) 18:55, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
[1][2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] There's nothing article-worthy in all that?
And what the fuck does Gamergate got to do with anything? When did RW become obsessed with Gamergate? Balaam (talk) 19:02, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
This person is only famous (outside of the UK conservative bloggosphere) BECAUSE of gamergate, or more accurately, and Milo's hijacking of gamergate to push their populist conservative agenda. I'm not sure that what one college student did at a university in the UK did once is worth it's own page, aside from creating on obvious strawman. Petey Plane (talk) 19:05, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
The fact you just dismissed the Guardian as a conservative paper is telling.Keter (talk) 19:44, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Maybe not, but again, this was a tweet made by a college student, and the only reason why that news story has any traction is because of promotion by the conservative blogosphere. Again, i'm not sure why this person warrants a page based on 1 tweet, other than to create a "SJW" strawman.Petey Plane (talk) 19:53, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Trolling Is Free frequently features right-wing clicktrolling and is far from constituting news coverage - David Gerard (talk) 19:53, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
It's not just Comment is Free, it's the main body of the Guardian too. And honestly, a single tweet being given so much traction by tight-wing blogs that it leads to multiple articles in the Guardian and Indy? That sounds like a pretty interesting topic for an RW page. Balaam (talk) 20:25, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
No, I disagree. I don't see how it promotes missionality at all. --Castaigne2 (talk) 20:56, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
You are all wrong about the Grauniad. The proper name is Comment is Futile. The moderation bunker is full of precious snowflakes enforcing conversation etiquette suitable for tea with Her Majesty. And don't even think about posting links to fact-based articles if someone claims they are racist/antisemitic. They also do not much tolerate sex-positive feminism. Many, many reasonable people have been banned there.---Mona- (talk) 21:41, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
