Three Musketeers

According to an anonymous report on 8chan's /gg/ board,[1]
"Most articles are clean. They may seem artsy, but that is because they cover ludological topics which seem vague due to their philosophical nature. Anyway; I have found 'only' 28 articles that are suspicious (by looking at the title, introduction and names involved, and if they seem to be pushing an agenda.) ..."

According to this report, there are 3 people of interest:

"These three have written an awful lot of articles together. Now that isn't peculiar, except that all but two of those articles seem to be agenda based."

They have written:

  • 06278.27455.pdf Her own Boss: Gender and the Pursuit of Incompetent Play.
  • 07311.36536.pdf Girls and Gaming: Gender Research, “Progress” and the Death of Interpretation
  • 07312.27373.pdf Gender in Play: Mapping a Girls’ Gaming Club
  • 07312.45210.pdf Digital Games for Education: When Meanings Play

Nicholas Taylor wrote the following alone:

  • 09291.07278.pdf Where the Women Are(n’t): Gender and a North American ‘Pro-gaming’ Name

"I have [yet] to read all five of these in detail, but it is safe to assume that there is something up with the[se] three, that I've named The Three Musketeers for the occasion." </blockquote>[2]
