GON: Atkinson’s negative opinion towards gamers has been reinforced by death threats and general childish behaviour. Do you think that gamers have taken the wrong action in targeting Atkinson as the enemy? It doesn’t seem that anyone has tried simply discussing the matter with him; do you think this would be a better course of action?
Kat: Lots of people have tried discussing it with him. Lots of people have tried sending him emails. I have had people show me their emails seeking to come to constructively find a solution to the matter and they’ve received angry, irrational replies full of sweeping generalisations. When people have said he shouldn’t let his personal religious beliefs intrude on decisions that affect the whole nation, Atkinson will jump on it and say – and this is a word-for-word quote - “I’m sorry you hate people who have spiritual beliefs so much that you are opposed to their participation in civic life.”
