In cases like this, it's interesting to see the vast chasm splitting reports, some sites are presenting only half the story and appear to actually be siding with her. In an incident where it's so easy to dig up the full story and chain of tweets, and in a case where a person has been behaving poorly against others on twitter for some time, this isn't exactly a clever strategy. Individuals on youtube and blogs have such influence over public opinion today, these sites backing this woman could pay dearly for it. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of any site that has a clear and obvious bias, regardless of the topic, I've already stopped reading quite a few a while back due to this.
Let's hope some developers voice their open support for ArenaNet as well, people like her need to put in their place and having journalists and "journalists" running her errands and spreading nonsense is damaging for everyone in the long run. I'm quite simply astonished that she doesn't have the decency to even apologize after all this. Wow.
I agree with you. It's why I avoid Kotaku and Polygon as much as possible. Rock Paper Shotgun is now on my list too.
