    You will probably never know. What is the use in debating over it.
    They just want drama.

    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    Who are "they"? Besides, Blizz themselves are providing more drama than any "hater" would have ever dreamed of, and for free

    It wouldn't raise much of an eyebrow except that you are publicly saying he's lying.

    I never understood why people fuss over with people leaving Blizzard. There are tons of "problems" with wow currently and you would think its only a good thing that they change personnel to get better as company.

    Sure, that seems a reasonable explanation as to why several major companies have pulled their sponsorships from OWL since I posted that. /s

    Though I wouldn't claim it is because they care about feelings directly, I'd wager they just don't want the scrutiny that can come with bad PR. The Coca-Cola Company for example has done objectively worse shit, and I would say they're a far worse company when it comes to how much actual harm they inflict on a global scale (afaik they're one of the worst plastic polluters to exist, up there with Nestle and other similar companies).

    I'm not attempting to make light of the sexual harassment and misconduct that went on at Blizzard, but pointing out that type of harm is extremely limited in the scope and scale of how many people are harmed by it. It isn't remotely comparable to the millions of tons of plastic being produced and subsequently dumped into the oceans by the Coca-Cola Company. Both are bad, but one problem is more easily fixed and the other is going to remain a major problem for decades(if not centuries) for everyone on the planet regardless what happens to the company.

    Innocent until proven guilty and all but it is bad optics to leave when those who have such serious accusations against them are as well.

    Innocent until proven guilty is only relevant to the court system.

    I am entirely comfortable with forming an opinion on a situation without the court's judgement given existing evidence. It is entirely reasonable to jettison employees with "baggage" before the courts reach a decision. Even then, it is entirely reasonable to jettison a problematic employee even if they are found innocent - the court's judgement doesn't need to determine your personal opinion. "Innocence" is a spectrum within the court, and often just a technicality.

    If left on their own, it's a real bad decision as everyone will only think one thing about you, you're guilty af of something.
