    Do the right thing, eh? You just created the situation you "reported" on.

    There are quotes in the article from her saying she's fed up with the comments and her health is suffering. The crux of the complaint appears to be the use of the word "onslaught", but outside of that its not like the whole story is a fantasy.

    Still this is just more fodder for nobheads like The Quartering, who live and breathe "games journalism is bad".

    Outrage outrage has a lot of value on YouTube
