Dtoider Alan Argentina and I would like to discuss current events surrounding Anita Sarkeesian and beyond with the community. We want to post topics and have a discussion in the comments about them. I will be PM'ing certain dtoiders that I would love to hear from regarding the topics at hand or other topics not addressed, but I know there are a lot of you out there that I wouldn't think of and that's why this post is up. What topics would you like to see discussed? What's your take on all this? How can we better this industry and culture? Let Alan and I know what you want to talk about. Drop a comment or a PM to us. Let's have a respectful discussion about this stuff eh? We will compile all feedback and put together a discussion blog soon. If you want to remain anonymous PM one us with your idea and a message stating that. These issues are important to a lot of us and we'd like to see them discussed outside of some event (that....game, the interview), spurring the discussion with emotions swayed.

Sorry for the extra step!
About Mike Martinone of us since 9:50 PM on 04.21.2009
Formerly known as PhilKenSebben. He is now 36 and old and one of your Community Managers. Focusing on community playdates, contests, streaming and modding. He will never be Andy Dixon. He probably hates you as well (He's lying about that). He loves the cock though. He used to run The Low(er) Tier, he podcasted (and is now on PStoid, led by dudes in pants) and got into development and then fell out of it. He says he enjoys nothing (his fat ass loves tacos though), but his known interests (besides games) are: reading, hiking, playing with his kids, yelling at old(er) people, collecting various urine samples, stalking Smurfee, bad MSPaint work, thinking about working out, itching his bare butthole and seeing how long he can go without smelling his finger and Batman. He loves old school cars (Chevy), football (Packers & Niners) and of course: Vidya Gamze!
His favorite games as a wee lass were: SMB3, Gunstar Heroes, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, Doom/Quake, Excitebike, Anything from Sierra/Lucasarts and MK. Now days he barely has times for games. Keen on TBS and Roguelikes still though (Spelunky ftw!). The replayability makes his dick hard. He also is known to be playing FPS online and headshotting your ass. He's always down to game with anyone, so feel free to hit him up on whatever you see I'm on. He's been on Dtoid quite awhile now (almost 8 years) and has been involved in numerous off the radar things like contests, recaps, Community Managing and spreading his AIDS. You could find him lurking mainly in the forums, but yeah. Dtoid has forums? Nlol. Now he's a simple qpost whore. He also checks for spam and spreads his love here and there in cblogs and the fp. He loves you sick bastards. In a sexy non-sexual way.
He is also on that thar Tweetarr @MikeMcPhil. Feel free to hit him up, He is always down to chat or lend an ear to someone in need. Or he'll send you some horrific or weird memes. Your choice.
