    NeoGAF dead after owner accused of sexual harrassment

    The site is completely down now (links have a database error), so this article hasn't been updated with it.

    http://comicbook.com/2017/10/22/neog...xual-assault-/

    Recently, the popular gaming forum site NeoGAF imploded in on itself when the owner Tyler Malka "Evilore" was once again accused of sexual assault; and this time moderators are fleeing the site. The result allegations even caused the site to be temporarily shut down for a time.

    Tyler Malka has been accused several times in the past of sexual misconduct, even himself allegedly boasting about grabbing women without their consent. It seems like the latest allegation was enough to make Malka take matters in his own hands and his fellow moderators are not having it. The most recent meltdown, and the reason for Malka deleting massive amounts of threads on the site, and the temporary shut down, revolves around a recent Facebook post calling him out for a specific instance of sexual assault.



    Just like with everything on the internet, a little digging is necessary to see the authenticity of certain claims; especially those in dealing with dire topics such as sexual assault. When the topic of NeoGAF and how they handle situations like this came up, one user took to a forum to explain that the post above is in fact real, and this is why we should care:

    “Guess I should chime in since I'm being named.

    In a private group convo, one of my fellow participants brought up the fact that EL got #MeToo'd on FB. I saw someone on my feed telling a story an hour prior that could've fit but I didn't read it too closely, was skeptical and posted a shot in our convo.. I was then directed toward the comments and lo and behold, there was the name. Was a holy shit moment for me, and something of a letdown too, having met both the accuser and the accused IRL. Posted that shot in our convo as well. Came to the realization that this should only really go public if the accuser wants it to because it's her story to tell, and the rest of the participants in the convo reached the same consensus, or so it seemed. I deleted the shots from our group chat. Turned out one of the people in there saved the shots, and gave them to another person who then posted it on Voat, and did a godawful job at concealing the identity of the accuser and myself before doing so. She doesn't deserve to get doxxed and harassed by the internet mob if she's not ready for it, and it's solely for that reason that I didn't want this getting out there, which is why I regret sharing that shot in that group convo.

    But yes, it's real.”

    Immediately after the above statement took place, that user was banned. A lot of speculation ensued afterwards when the original Facebook post was taken down, prompting many to wonder if it was real, which led to the above statement validating potential authenticity. More and more moderators for the popular site seem to be "jumping ship" including Besada, Xander Cage, Cyan, and Kabouter.

    The site promptly went into lockdown mode and the moderators started stepping forward:

    Malka continues to police the site, shutting it down, and monitoring social media statements bringing up the latest allegation. Many continue to bring up his past association with a previous moderator that was later arrested for child pornography. Malka distanced himself from the offender, though donations to him from Malka himself continued to come to light. Whenever anyone brought it up, from either side, the users were allegedly banned immediately.

    I never kept up with the mod/owner shit because NeoGAF was where I would usually get my hype for certain things started.

    Sucks for the people who legitimately enjoyed games who were on there.

    NeoGAF was still a thing?

    As a current member of that forum, I'm disappointed. This will probably end one of two ways:

    1. Evillore will step down and the site will return to normal

    2. The majority of NeoGAF members will either migrate to another existing site or create a new one.

    I said before I posted the link, NeoGAF comes up with a database error when you try to go to it.

    It's dead.

    Database errors have been pretty common on NeoGAF (for me), especially when there's a lot of traffic.

    That allegation is such bullshit lmao. Why go drinking with him? Why share a hotel room? Why shower with him in the room? This is a chick that is trying to rationalize a way to say shes not a cheating whore.

    The site is up right now. It's certainly slow and in chaos, but not dead.

    Not that I'm going to react quite as extremely as this, but yeah. Her story (if I'm not mistaken on anything) is that they had a room together and then she showered while he was there? How good of friends were they exactly?

    I'm leaning more towards this guy being an asshole (since I could easily see that being the truth), but it's not like the girl's side of the story doesn't have some fairly fishy components to it.

    From the looks of it it seems like they were sharing a room and I guess she trusted him not to get into the shower when she went in. Other than that from what I know it isn't the first time Evilore gets accused but I guess that back then being an "ally" meant he wasn't going to face any repercussion. Now that the whole #MeToo is exploding I guess your status doesn't matter.

    I guess some people share hotel rooms and get drunk with platonic friends of the opposite sex...

    Not really surprising though considering what I've seen from that site.

    What's up with male feminist and being sexual predators?

    I can't say I care much one way or another about neogaf. I feel sorry for whatever sites their former users flock to. I hope they have enough safe spaces for them.

    There is no way her story has all the details. Why would the bf dump her from this?

    503 error now.

    Also, I'll keep following the new posts on Twitter for the laughs if this ever goes back up again.

    Not saying this didn't happen, but the part about "Not wanting to tell her boyfriend, because he'll say I led him on" screams "I didn't tell my boyfriend I was sharing a hotel room with my male friend who i planned on getting shit face drunk with and totally not sleeping with". Also, do hotel bathrooms not have locks? I lock my bathroom when Im alone, let alone with someone. If this did happen as claimed, then he is a scum bag and should be called out as such, but something tells me there is more to this story than being said.
