Dunno about Comicgate because I didn't follow that, but a lot of Gamergate's visibility worked by confusing people as to what they were supporting. They claimed Zoe Quinn was a journalistic ethics issue, they claimed that they actually formed after some articles that were mean to gamers. They had a bunch of useful idiots who were really just angry that their favourite games got bad review scores. Once Anita was on Colbert or so, all the diehards couldn't do anything except retreat to their own websites because no one would buy their stories anymore.
How is Animegate going to pull that off? Is the whole thing going to hinge on this being an assault on '90s dubs?
