    Discussions of witch hunts are irrelevant. This is not twitter or reddit trying to cancel Blizzard, this is the state conducting a long and thorough investigation resulting in legal action against the company.
    I welcome you to the horrible realisation that the government is turning into twitter/reddit.

    Incorrect. The state is far from competent and perhaps has one of the highest ratio of lost courtcases.

    Horrible stuff. Afrasiabi sounds like a completely demoralized degenerate. Sadly, these kinds of behaviors are very frequent it seems. It's good all of this is coming to light so that the change may come. It sucks to be a woman in the gaming industry, as well as in any other workplace, if this is the kind of shit you have to deal with on daily basis. What a shame.

    Of all the controversies so far, this is the actual bad stuff, and I hope the gamerzzz forget their idiotic idea of defending predators "because they haven't been punished by a court", which should be easier cause they hate blizz already for completely irrelevant things

    Just eww

    Just because sexual harassment was rampant and no one dared speak about it doesn't mean it was "the normative culture" you piece of shit. People like you genuinely disgust me and I don't care if I get infracted for this.

    Also. the rest of that bio screams #metoo #feminazi bullshit to me. Cancel culture at its best.
    Oh look, another idiot.

    people on one hand saying fuck Blizz but also saying it's woke to treat women like human beings. gamers still wondering why people call them incels.

    Huh, so that's why Alex Afrasiabi just vanished. When will Blizzard remove all references to him in the game?

    "Also, since you have access to purchasing the Teleporter Repair Kits or Repaired Rift Keys, we are disabling them from going to mail if you loot one with a full inventory so they will no longer fill up your mailbox."

    "rather than clutter your mailbox with something valuable we did you the favor of only making it available to loot directly or for purchase."

    Also that explains why J. Allen Brack just went live yesterday into the Game Maker's Notebook podcast for 1 hour to talk about female rights and the "inclusion" Blizzard is doing .. they are on active damage control.
    Anyone know why the court filing speaks of "Crosby suite" and "Bill Crosby" instead of Cosby?

    Also that teleporter thing and renown from Torghast are top tier QoL changes.

    I don't know which is more pathetic: your attempts to sweep this under the rug as just some sort of groundless witch hunt or the idea that you aren't "pretentious enough" when you seem to think you of all people know what's REALLY behind the state's long running investigation .

    Now all the sudden 'woke stuff' recently makes sense. Preemptive damage control. They don't actually care about social justice, like all companies. It's performative, shallow slacktivism designed to be something they can point towards as improvements in the company.

    Real social justice isn't about how many trans characters you can fit, it's the quality of the characters and actually understanding the issues.

    Im not surprised, at all. Happens way too often but im happy its being announced. Its really hard to respect women, always been. Men cant behave.

    Go troll somewhere else, really. You have really no clue if you comment something like that.

    Most SJWs are shallow in general, it's just another ideology that replaces critical thinking and actual care for other person (don't have to help anyone to feel better if you can just 'support the cause'). It's scary how it's geting more violent every year (both from SJWs and, ekhem, 'feedback' from other side), we all know where it leads.

    At these point I don't know if 'woke stuff' for damage control even works or it's just defensive instinct. For sure many people or companies do that.

    There isn't any actual claim against him yet, other than he was a little too friendly with women, and it was unprofessional.

    The Cosby room thing could literally be "one" person who said that in their interviews and they put it in the document to strengthen their case. There is so much grey area with this stuff.

    The women making the claims are also financially motivated. They get fat paycheck if California wins. It's literally on the last page of the court document. Hard to fully trust their claims are 100% truthful...

    If the claims are judged real, then of course there should be appropriate damages, sentences and compensations.

    I would be wary of jumping on this too fast. Bogus charges that get thrown out in court are not unheard of, as I can personally attest.

    I was personally indirectly involved in one such case by 2 specific female employees that were basically fishing for $$ and for not getting fired in case of one of them. The case eventually was thrown out, because it was BS, but it took time and one of them literally got salary while this all lasted outright without deserving it, by simply not working knowing she can't be touched while case is up.

    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    I think it's about the movement controlled by the money - distractions from the real problems of poverty and stuff that, if focused on, would make people support things that would hurt the rich ones in power, and making the followers feel good by performatively prostrating themselves (but mainly attack others). It's quite genius to pit groups against each other in a way to steal more of the common person's value.

    The problem is the vast majority of it is anecdotal hearsay claims by women who are financially motivated...

    The Bloomberg article was also pretty deceptive about what it really says on the court case.

    Specifically one example is about the girl who took her life. She was in a relationship with her supervisor and took her life due to him on a business trip is what it says. It's really not clear at all why. "One" employee think its possible a photo of her genitals was passed around at a holiday party.

    Quite different than what the article made it sound like...
