Credits: A_Plant_ for linking me to the quote from the GamesLoading kickstarter. Paolo Munoz for reminding me to include the credits for Depression Quest which list Nathan Grayson. I can't remember where the rest came from, some are mine, some others.
There is evidence that a personal relationship may have existed between Grayson and Quinn while Grayson was providing coverage. Furthermore, there is questions over what role Grayson may have played in the development of Depression Quest. These issues constitute a possible conflict of interest regarding said coverage.
