Examples include death threats, doxing, among other forms of harassment. It is also used as a deflection argument: When rebuttals or criticism is levied, anti-GamerGate supporters often use 'harassment' as the reasoning behind the discrepancy or critique, when in reality, they did not directly respond to said criticism.
