One thing that's interesting to note is that "gamers" are saying things like 
"Bloggers who have produced NOTHING feel qualified to criticize the open 
source community?".  I really doubt that the GamerGate community includes a 
single person who has made any contribution to Linux comparable to Matthew 

A significant portion of #IStandWithLinus is about attacking Shanley.  I think 
it's noteworthy that they spend more effort attacking a woman than actually 
doing what they claim to be doing and defending Linus.
