>it donated all proceedsNope. It was 50%. That means $1.1mil plus all the income from Monks sold this year was poured into the gaping maw of the Kotick.

The Kotick-hater thing is getting tiresome.

What do you expect from a Cardassian?

I don't see why people keep forgetting that Blizzard is a company and that they exist to make profit... They didn't have to donate a single penny of that to charity but they did, $1.1 million worth of them. Also I agree that the Kotick thing is getting just annoying now. It wasn't witty when the merger first happened and it still isn't funny now.

The Kotick thing was never meant to be a joke. Yes it's true that Blizz is a business and all that but not all business models are the same.I think Kotick has had a negative effect on the gaming industry and that it is possible to care for your customers and still make money hand over fist. The gaming industry over the last few years has been about making content more expensive and Kotick openly admits that.I don't think he's the devil, or that he wouldn't spend a dollar to save his mother's life, but I do think he doesn't care about gamers and gaming at all and that many of his business practices suck.

Be that as it may, the witch-hunt that goes on about him has turned it into a joke. Nothing trivializes a serious matter like a multitude of people chanting it like its the freshest Chuck Norris joke they just hopped onto the bandwagon for.

Know what else trivializes it? Brushing everyone off as band-wagoneers.
