    Yes, obviously blizzard "cared". Very astute remark.

    Anonymous internet communities tend to be. Though I do think "toxic" is thrown around far too easily. Imo, people have become too soft, too sensitive and to entitled. Free speech is an interesting thing, anno 2021; you can say whatever you want as long as it's in line with what is considered politically correct.

    I love Italy for that reason; people say what they think and no one whines about it. Unfortunately my country has also a lot of imperfections, which is why I left that shit hole ^^

    Saw people unironically unsubbing after this.

    They didn't care about this harassment situation in the company, they were fine even with what they did to Chromie, but this blatant woke signalling is a last straw

    Capitalised on an intern spelling error that had been in the game for over a decade? Those monsters, those fiends.
    Tonight for me is a special day. I want to go outside of the house of the girl I like with a gasoline barrel and write her name on the road and set it on fire and tell her to get out too see it (is this illegal)?

    I don't think that word means what you think it does.

    Moss doesn't give a fuck about cardinal directions.

    So your fact was "it most likely grows on the north side but it really can grow anywhere"? This of course is only true for the northern hemisphere because in the southern hemisphere it most likely grows on the south side.

    What a fact you've brought up, well done.

    How it is woke? they are protecting people who spend money on paid services in TBC classic. It's obvious this has everything to do with money, you don't want the piggies to get upset.

    let them leave, who the hell needs them. and even if it's "woke" to make a character trans, who cares? does it affect you? does it offend your precious feelings? good. if it's upsetting to you hopefully you follow the rest of the bigots out the door.

    STOP FUCKING UP BLIZZARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is Blizzard trying to change the narrative. They cannot deny the allegations, the horrific behavior, so they are going to start hitting us every week with new examples of attacking "player toxicity". The goal is to get people to stop being mad at Blizz and start getting mad at players.

    They need to fire everyone in management immediately. This is BLATANT and reprehensible.
    This is a lot of anger at the simple removal of an in-game slash command.

    Is the irony here that you're the guy that wants community back in WoW, but it turns out that you're just as toxic as everyone else?

I don't doubt that many of these stories were known about, but if the victims didn't want to speak with media about them officially (anonymously), it would be extremely poor form for media to report on them and ignore the victims wishes. Even if there were many victims they knew about.

    That being said, I honestly don't know why we're detouring down goobergummer road. I guess some people can't let a pointless, stupid, drama filled event go even years and years after it's been totally irrelevant.
    I think it's quite relevant actually. Considering you know, Blizzard was very much against the movement, tried so hard to deflect it's own toxicity onto gamers by attacking them all while these issues have been going on. And they tried oh so hard to be feminist allies, yet they never truly did learn anything from it. The fact that the Cosby Suite controversy was in 2013, that should have been the earliest signs that Blizzard had a toxic work culture shows how long this has been going on for. Not to mention how many corporations try to act like they give a shit about diversity, inclusion, women's rights etc, they ALWAYS have skeletons in their closets that come back to haunt them. Except that Blizzard's skeletons have been at the forefront of several controversies over the last several years involving workplace harassment and other issues surrounding toxicity. Yet they have the audacity to be critical of gamers? The industry and games journalists are the only one's to be blamed for their own toxic culture, and the gaming industry spent the better part of a decade or more cultivating the same attitude in it's players through marketing. Or have we forgotten all the bro culture ads for games like GTA, Halo and Call of Duty. Hell, I'm pretty sure that Microsoft's whole attitude towards marketing the original Xbox was that it "wasn't for kids" and often tried really hard to promote itself as a product for "mature gamers". Which ironically it turns out are really just insecure boys who feel the need to be assholes to one another as well as to women. A sheer reflection of the gaming industry itself.

    That's a pretty stupid thing to be mad about, especially in light of all of Blizzard's other blatant hypocrisy.

    Just read about these breastfeeding room incidents and I can't imagine how much of a fucking weirdo you have to go in there and stare like some creep, the amount of confidence these dudes must have shows the office culture here was genuinely rotten and enabling weirdos.

    I mean, if you've got no problem with a several-ton flying lizard turning into a 30-lb gnome, I have to question why you suddenly have an issue when it's a male several-ton flying lizard turning into a female 30-lb gnome.

    Pretty sure the only reason to throw a fit over that is naked transphobia.
