On October 14th, 2014, one of the moderators of RPG.net, Holden, created a thread where the very first post stated that Gamergate advocacy is a ban worthy offense on the same lines as supporting Stormfront. In the same thread, another moderator, Random Nerd, compared talking to Gamergaters to "engaging with Holocaust apologetics".
In a ongoing thread on Gamergate (which forbids Gamergate advocacy/support), moderator Killfalcon accuses the NotYourShield hashtag as a literal "human shield" of Gamergate. He also justifies Will Wheaton's insults towards the NotYourShield users, which includes all minorities and women who are pro-Gamergate.
