NeoGAF sexual assault allegations bring site offline

NeoGAF sexual assault allegations bring site offline

Popular video game forum NeoGAF is now offline. Discord servers have become a subtitute for many (including myself) to traditional games forums, with communities able to set up new hubs of activity quicker and easier than ever before, as well as moderate more effectively than previously possible. However, it appears that just about everyone is turning on the site right now. This comes amidst allegations of sexual assault by its owner Tyler "Evilore" Malka.

The allegations against Malka carry additional weight, due to claims from the man himself, posted on NeoGAF back in 2012 that he has treated women in a far less-than-gentlemanly fashion. The accuser then stated that she hopped in the shower alone and Malka attempted to join her, uninvited. Without giving any indication that she wanted him to, and without her consent, a fully naked Malka got in the shower with her.

This all comes in the wake of a number of sexual harassment accusations in both Hollywood and the gaming industry.

As of the writing of this article, the story is still building and there has been very little in terms of real, concrete proof that Malka did indeed engage in sexual misconduct. According to PlayStationLifeStyle, even more moderators are planning on leaving.

As the chaos continued, numerous forum's moderators also began to distance themselves from the site, staging what some Internet users are claiming was a "walk out".

A majority, if not all, of the moderators for the site have resigned and the rest of the community is strongly voicing their displeasure with the lack of a response from the site's founder.

There was supposed to be a statement from the owner 15 hours ago but it hasn't arrived and as a result, there is complete chaos. We will continue to keep you updated as this story develops.
