    Well, we, humans, did burned "witches" on stakes because someone stated that those womens were "witches", so if you think about how all world society started to turn into "Idiocracy", I won't be surprised if we end up convicting people based on no evidence, just on "he/she says he/she says".

    Remember ?

    Sorry, we'll do better, and apologies are just empty words with no value with regards to this.

    If GC, or the others want to REALLY appear sincere in their apology.... they'll turn state witness against the others, and give the state the missing bits of evidence. If they aren't willing to testify against one another... then their words are literally as worthless as a mafia boss "i don't recall" when talking to the feds.

    Apologies are cheap.... testimonies and turning witness? That's REAL contrition with actual value

    Historically the pendulum swung back and forth. The fun question is how bad the next round of purges gonna be considering modern tech makes witch hunting much more effective. Though its also possible that it simply wont be necessary as manufacturing consent is becoming incredible easy with automation filtering what users get to see and believe on the net.

    The thing is, when you are promoting someone doing "grunt" work to a position where they will be supervising people and spending a lot more time communicating with you as your direct report, you kind of want that person to be on friendly terms with you. No one wants to argue over every little detail or god forbid a person who is strongly affected by their menstrual cycle (PMS and such). Someone who you can tell how far along their menstrual cycle they are just isn't good fit to a manager position in a high stress high performance environment.

    I think Kotaku should now go and ask Afrasiabi elementary school teacher if he already hit a black kid or pulled some girls hair so twitter can go :SHOCKER:
    Lol this. Gonna be a lot less on a site like mmoc, but most normal guys have a groupchat that gets like this. If they don't, they probably are low test. Like not even memeing they probably legit have low test, don't get women, and don't have actual single guy friends that go out and meet women.

    Another big issue here for management is the almost 7 dollar drop in stock price. These charges are going really have investors attention now, less likely they will be able to sweep it under the rug.

    Since the charges came out a couple days ago, the stock has dropped from roughly 92 a share down to under 83 a share.

    I think as more information comes out the stock is going to continue to take hits. Management is now going to have to explain to investors why the sudden drop in stock price.

    I hope that blizzard realizes how bad they have screwed up on this. I hope they start cleaning house of every one involved in any way shape or form.

    the next couple of weeks are critical. I honestly think you will see management turning on each other now because everyone is going to go in self protection mode.

    Well said. This shit is going completely out of hand. There is no longer any sense of accountability and responsibility from anyone. They are ruining lives, families and homes just for self satisfaction. I think it is high time "social media" comes under govt. observation in an offical capacity.
    Warcraft 3 Reign of Chaos was the game that brought me into gaming. I was 17 years old then, I abhorred gaming before this game. From then on, I became a fan of Warcraft and Blizzard. To see it all go down the drain like this is truly sad for me. No king rules forever but at least some of them went down in history as real badasses. I hoped Blizzard and Warcraft would be one of them but it is no longer possible.

    Yeah, I'd want some sort of evidence on that.

    The problem is, as soon as you do that, you start the slippery slide towards government control, and you get something like China, where you can't say anything against those in power.


    Hell, Australia's already having issues with that currently. We have a media monopoly, with 'social media' being one of the ways to get independent news out there - except when you've got stuff like the Deputy PM suing a youtuber who reported on his corrupt dealings for calling him "a con-man."

    Social Media had a wealth of negatives, but one of the positives is that people can share their stories and get it out, where otherwise a lot of horrendous things wouldn't get noticed. I mean, shit, you think if the government had control, they'd allow live streaming or posting of stuff like George Floyd? You think Trump wouldn't have abused his ability to take down anything said on Twitter against him?

    There’s a difference between the Internet and a real life professional environment. It’s cute that you think words can’t be held against you in court.

    Ironically, the Democrats let Twitter and Facebook take down anything said against them for them. Great way around the 1st Amendment.,

    This has already been happening to be fair.

    There was some stuff of a former Blizzard manager shared where he was chastizing the higher ups because he knew what was going on from his own experience. A few female employees/former employees called him one of the good ones and that he was one of the few they had had good experiences with.

    Only for another group of female employees/former employees to proclaim that he had also been abusive. I don't know where the truth lies, but there is and there will be a lot of cannibalism in order to save their own skin.

    This entire thing is getting out of control. No one is even waiting for CA's investigation. Also I watched that ghostcrawler video from blizzcon. That has nothing to do with the actual abuse CA is implying, and I'm sorry but it's not bad at all. Another #metoo , looked at a microscope from over 10 years ago.

    They did the investigation, that’s why there’s the lawsuit. God it’s like people don’t even read.

    imagine thinking modern tech skirting legislation from a century ago is legit and not a natural oversight that should be addressed.

    Actually this has been a really good week for stocks, or a least for my portfolio (the prior week 7.19 -7.23 was a week he market took huge hit mainly because of the wall street fear of the delta variant. Also the dow is over 35k.

    If you are that obtuse to think that this law suit is not reason that the stock is dropping then you have bigger issues.

    The stock is down closer to 6 dollars a share and with total outstanding shares of 777.02M x 6 = 4.620 B decrease in company value. So yes the investors are going notice a company loss in value of over 4 B in a week very seriously.

    I don't invest my money where wallstreet tells me. I do my homework, i look at companies f/s and ratios before i buy. I will admit that I do take advantage of situations like this and watch a stock price drop. Then when it bottoms out I buy.

    I cant help you are jealous of people making money on wallstreet. I suggest you do your home work and get in the market. The more money you can put in the better of you will be.

    My portfolio for the year is up 13%.

    This is why I love these threads. You can always identify the MAGA crowd from a mile off. Try as they might, they always out themselves.

    They'll scream cancel culture at everything they like being rightfully removed. And they'll say nothing about everything they hate being removed.

    Ok then i guess we're back to the crowd deciding where justice should be served. Man there is this girl in my neighborhood that got pregnant and she said it was that black dude that rapped her. I guess we're gonna storm his house and that rope on that tree in his garden will be serving god's justice !
