Posting NPD numbers is a significant risk for them. So I don't see what the issue is with them taking things personally. Whatever their reasons for posting numbers, they are putting their necks on the line and people should be cogniscent of that fact.
But do you see how stupid that is? Like if they want to post npd numbers, leak it out to some friend thats not even in the same country via whatsapp or something and have them post it if they don't want their jobs to be at stake.
Not to mention posting on gaf wasn't an issue cause it was a personal thing. It is known as a stone cold fact that NPD regularly monitors that site for the express purpose of catching leakers. Posting leaked numbers there is astoundingly stupid.
This is even worse..... this is the internet for crying out loud. If NPD is actively looking for leaks, is VGC the best place to post said leaks and somehow next expect attention?
Do you think everyone that vists the NPD thread on VGC knows for certain not to take those numbers, copy and paste them on some website somehere? I mean.... who really has ever succeded in controlling the internet.
Pretty much everyone on Gaf is aware of the NPD monitoring. And yes, you can get caught anywhere on the internet. But this is honestly a pretty small community. NPD does not monitor the whole internet, just specific sites. Like NeoGaf.
And btw, calling people trying to leak numbers so that sites and communities have real data idiots, drama queens, narcisists, liars, and all manner of other insults (and I saw every damn one of those last month) is insufferable, pathetic, immature behavior. And taking those numbers and posting them on a site KNOWN to be monitored especially when they expressly warned you not to is just an asshole move. And saying they should expect people to be assholes doesn't make their asshole behavior any less condemnable.
