TheBigotGamer states on its "About" page:

This site is a social experiment...When people think they are anonymous, they don't hold back. Oh how the hate flows when you think there are zero consequences... we are not trying to stop discrimination in the gaming world. We're just trying to expose it in easy, click-able links.
