...I use goobergate instead of the other word because sometimes the mere mention of the word will bring an onslaught of gaters to defend "ethics in games journalism'. I also mask Z$e Quinn's name and anything else that might draw their attention. Admittedly it isn't much of a problem on a well-moderated board like this. But best not to tempt fate.
