    I'm not saying they're all rapists or even that any of them are but it is extremely clear that a lot of high ups in Blizzard knew that this behaviour (which at the most generous could be described as extremely inappropriate) was going on and at very least turned a blind eye to it. which is exactly what they have claimed not to have done
    In my work place I've had a manager literally threaten to throat punch her employees, same one would physically grab her employees and shove them, and higher ups didn't care. I've seen gay employees talk about wanting to get with hot male employees openly. Been part of conversations with other women about male employees. Nothing was done in any of these cases, but yep, when a group of straight guys were overheard doing this shit, everyone acted like you all are right now. Again, grow a pair, tits or testicles your choice. Humans like sex, we all like attractive people, we all want to be fawned over in some way shape or form. Get.over.it.

    I can't say if I believe her or not that she was unaware of what would happen, but she just spelled out pretty directly that "the shit went down there." So we can put to rest any arguments that it was an "innocent party."
    WoW has Cancer. First you cut out the cancer (abusive devs), then you assign an aggressive treatment plan (major design rework) to save it.

    Or you just let it die because that's too expensive.

    So that means it’s always consensual? Some may have been fine with this, it seems given legal involvement that many were not.

    literally yes, the difference is men see it as flattery. Do you live on this planet at all?

    I mean given Riot's own history I think he might be safe.

    And yet most of the other people didn't. The only reason Afrasiabi got fired was because the information was leaked out of Blizzard. It's called a PR scam, they're trying to be like "but we did take action!" to try and rebuild trust, but they aren't actually being upfront with you; hence a PR scam.

    Not sure what you are on about? My boss and every other boss I worked with had a Ph.D. and were extremely professional and educated. They don't have profile pictures with random women hugging them - they have a loving family. And yes, they also drink a beer at a party.

    These clowns being managers is just horrendous.

    We can justifiably call out the higher ups for not doing anything about all this. But when you're just a regular worker facing the real possibility of losing your livelihood and maybe even the roof over your head if you speak out then you're likely to keep your mouth shut. I don't blame her at all.

    I think that is different than cube crawls though. And what Alex did in general.

    All sexual harassment isn't that severe. It could be something like a slap on the butt by someone who has no power to fire anyone. This is something I have personally experienced.

    evidence

    come on, you can do it

    evidence

    (also this does happen to guys a lot with not only women bosses but also with gay bosses in the hollywood areas, and yes there's actual proof, and no nothing happens to the gay directors when exposed)

    Cory Stockton, was a lead designer on WoW, famously made Pet Battles.

    Not sure what he does now but his twitter says "Game Director at Blizzard"

    Also Alex doesn't matter anymore, we know he is a harasser.

    Greg, Jesse, Cory and Dave though. We can't just accuse them of shit when they might aswell have thought it was something silly between "bros".
    Holy shit, how are people not getting it? There wouldn't be a lawsuit if it was consensual. The lawsuit specifically goes after Blizzard leadership for knowing about the abuse, doing nothing about it, and practically encouraging it. So yeah, they are accused of shit and it clearly wasn't "something silly between 'bros'."

    I love how everyone's brain turns to mush because their favorite game publisher gets in trouble with the law for being a bunch of perverted wankers.
    Populists (and "national socialists") look at the supposedly secret deals that run the world "behind the scenes". Child's play. Except that childishness is sinister in adults.
