    Who is still actually boycotting after Hong Kong?

    After B-whateverhisnameis got banned for protesting for HK, I remember the armchair SJW came out of the woodwork claiming they'd boycott blizzard and blahblabhblah.

    Any of you who said that still holding to that boycott? (remember, I will check your post history since and if I see you've posted about playing the game recently, I'll laugh at you profusely).

    This is a silly thread, OP is asking "-uhh where are you boycotters now huh??!" when they have likely left WoW and anything Blizzard behind already.
    Well..yeah...it is a silly thread ...but the people leaving WoW and Blizzard (allegedly) behind...they are here and they will tell us. They often enough do.

    I was about to ask that lol. But this guy is infamous for only making useless bait threads, so the answer should be clear.

    Plus Hong Kong is lost now. This was a flash-in-the-pan issue for the USA but here in the UK, Honk Kong is a really personal issue, since Tonty Blur decided to try to get sweet little entrepreneurial China on our good side by appeasing them and giving Hong Kong their sovereignty only for China to renege on their pinky swear to definitely not invade it for 70 years (typical Brits, appeasing the fascists) and now we're evacuating HKer refugees as fast as possible with permanent UK citizenship because we know China will execute them otherwise. An awful, awful state of affairs for millions of people.

    But you don't mess with China. They hold the pursue string to half the world's media budget and market. They hold more sway than the USA, who will let anybody do business with them for the right cut, because they Government decide what their people can or can't consume/buy.

    Pretty sure it was given back to China because the UK only had a 99 year lease on it which had expired and which was obtained under nerfarious circumstances to begin with... If it wasn't Tony Blair giving it back it would have been the next guy just as most / all of our other former Empire posessions were given back or given independence.

    About the only similair UK posession which hasn't been given back is Gibraltar but there was no agreement to give that back when we leveraged it out of Spain's posession hundreds of years ago. If there was i'm sure that would have been given back too.

    The Falklands is an entirely different set of circumstances having been a British posession since the state of Argentina was even formed and Argentina itself being a colonial construct of Spain.

    No one in their right mind, blamed Blizzard for that non-incident.

    Blizzard handled it 100% correct, when they banned a basement dweller, who made political propaganda against the rules, using Blizzard IPs...
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    Absolutely no one. That is the answer. People who are upinarms about this issue is extremely small. I never than as 1000.

    1000 is nothing.

    SJW? do you even know what it stands for? mate.. Blitzchung was protesting for HK because they have no human rights... so how is it SJW of people to boycott a company that is actively banning people who want human rights?

    This has nothing to do with WoW, and isn't likely to produce much in the way of constructive discussion or debate. Closing this.
