I genuinely looked for a thread but couldn't find one.
So, Activision is getting sued for sexual harassment. Now, I'm sure most of us have read stories about game devs and their iffy behaviour, but this... this is beyond that to a level that's hard to fathom.
And to top it all off, they're not being sued by a woman or a group of women. No, they're being sued by the STATE OF CALIFORNIA after a two-year long investigation.
So yeah... I dunno. I really dunno. I'd like to think they get raked over the coals for this, but with how ****ing profitable that company is? I don't know if this is going to kill them or anything (even with WoW users steadily decreasing, they still have CoD etc).
One thing I do know, is even half that shit is true, those ****ers need to be taken out back and shot.

I know there's such a thing as false accusations and stuff, but I'm not really getting that from this. Some men legit have a problem when it comes to women, and at companies will still act or think like they're in middle school or high school because they never grew up. Not surprising with Blizzard either after previous shit with them and seeing how the likes of Ubisoft and Naughty Dog were prevalent with frat culture.
This is what happens when a company doesn't incorporate and enforce corporate standards at work for the sake of looking or feeling "cool".

I think we all agree taking nude photos from an unwilling employee and then sending it to people in the office is something that be punishable by termination of employment and possible a criminal case (depending on jurisdictions and such)
If these allegations are true, it's disgusting behaviour.
Speak for yourself. If you have nudes on a hackable device or sent to anyone, you deserve what you get.
Same reason I don't sympathize with the Girlsdoporn whores, maybe don't accept work in one of the shadyist industries on the planet so you won't need to worry about being lied to and having your videos released to every online porn service imaginable, instead of in some third world nation.
"These don't actually apply here, as we already have a two year investigation showing the victims weren't faking it. You are, in fact, victim blaming.
Going by your logic, the victim of a mass shooting is at fault because they could have just stayed home that day.
Also the fact that hacking a phone is illegal so his point about the victims are too blame for pictures on their phone being hacked is complete bullshit.
And the fact that its generally illegal to share intimate photos without their consent......
And his reference to GirlsDoPorn is complete crock of shit...it has no relevance at all...and the example is terrible considering the owners of that company have been convicted for fraud, sex trafficking (due to their videos), coercion and child pornography....
