    Imagine airing, not just personal business, but your friends personal business all over the internet. If I was her friend I'd be livid.

    Another victim, this time a former co-worker from Obsidian.

    Is there another story behind Avellone leaving Obsidian?

    As someone who was molested as a child, this #MeToo, “believe all women and potential victims 1000%” bullshit is literally giving me an aneurism.

    it's just pmc middle class womyn trying to ruin random people on the basis of getting money/clout and job opportunities. A similar thing happened a few months ago when zoe quinn cancelled that night in the woods dev and he offed himself later. About two weeks after the event, she got interviewed by random news channels for it. Essentially what's happened is that sexual harrassment has been turned into a commodity that these people can use to advance their own career. She "forgave" Chris on the basis of it not being profitable to cancel him at that specific point.

    So drunken flirting is sexual harassment now? Apparently also being in a bad and toxic relationship is also sexual harassment? What happened to just dumping shitty romantic partners and that being the end of it?

    I don't get it. Don't most people have relationships that end up going badly at some point in their lives? If you bone each other and it's consensual, and you break up a few months later that's not rape or sexual harassment. Right?

    Maybe I'm just not woke enough for social media.

    Angry Joe is now being canceled because he was flirty with a woman.

    These women need to stop as their constant wanting for power, clout and victimhood is hurting real victims. Of course they don't care. Ain't no bigger lie in the world then the feminist concept of "Sisterhood".

    I didn't even realize there was a thread about this already. I just learned about all this and read the tweets and shit.

    From what I gather, this is true: Chris has (or had?) a problem with alcohol. Sometimes when he got too drunk, he got pushy or touchy including grabbing people's asses at cons. Also, he's got no game. He can't smooth talk to chicks at all.

    That's not a good thing. But from what I had been hearing before reading it all, it really seemed like he was a Bill Cosby type or some shit and that just doesn't seem to be the case here.

    Oh yeah, it's a bit ridiculous that companies are talking about removing the work he did on their games from the game now. I can't imagine paying someone for work and then throwing it away later when they in an unrelated way have turned out to be a prick.

    Uh... I'm on the left wing (call me whatever you want, I'm proud to be a bleeding heart, but I'll listen), but I'm not a man-hating feminist (honestly, men get short shrift in plenty of things like divorce settlements and maternity leave, but then again, you'll never see me in a MGTOW rally). The problem I see with allegations is we're quick to assume based upon knee-jerk responses before we look for hard evidence due to our synapses looking for both instant gratification and immediate closure. We refuse to draw out stuff, out of risk of invalidation to our argument out of fear of being wrong. Again, that's our human instinct; we want to be proven right no less than 100%, dammit.

    I'm just saying, if you say these allegations happened to you, I feel for you, but you may want to have some evidence to back it up besides anecdotal. Our own memories are the worst pieces of evidence because they can be modified until they are manipulated into what fits best for your perspective.

    I could care less if someone is a lefty. My boyfriend is a proud bleeding hard lefty too. What I don't like is that "Innocent until proven guilty" is now thrown out the window. Instead it is now replaced with "Guilty until proven innocent." Remember what happened to Alec Holowka?

    Honestly, people need to stop going to social media to fling out accusations. If something really happened then go to the police instead of railing up a Twitter mob.

  14. They won't. The themepark isn't setup that way. The account will go where the advertising is.

    That's the thing about what I call the Court of Public Opinion.

    It doesn't matter if you're proved innocent with hard facts; people will never forgive you because they think emotionally rather than rationally.
