Thread over. Someone trotted out the "this is Activision's fault, Bobby Kotick is the antichrist" pony. McCurley's arguments are sound, and unless we are all shareholders in the firm, we've got exactly zero right to any oversight on how Blizzard manages their infrastructure. We can either trust that laying off 600 people was a last resort taken by administrators who must act with fiscal responsibility in a time of financial crisis, or we can say "corporations are evil and firing people is wrong" and choose to be ignorant of how businesses must operate in order to stay alive. I for one will trust that Morhaime and the gang didn't do this lightly.
