Not sure if the Doc understands how much time and money is involved in making a AAA Battle Royale experience (assuming that's what he's making since that's what he plays) but it's going to take years to get it right. Anyway wish him the best or whatever and hope he comes out with a great product.

Well written, but beware a shit storm may just be about to flood you.
In any case...it is unfortunately that these people cannot resist the urge to post about everything on social media. I'm glad I'm too old to be caught up in this kind of foolishness. I put my foot in my mouth enough in my personal life that I really don't need to showcase myself having my foot down my throat for the world to see.
How does anyone get to be the head of a company and not know this.
Keep your mouth shut and run every public facing social media post past your legal and hr departments.
His dismissal was not even close to being "cancel cultured".
I'm sure the regular suspects will be a long claiming how he's a victim of woke or sjw bullshit. It's inevitable.

Quote: "LEO is an increasingly busy place, and astronomers have already complained about the trails of satellites spoiling their observations.
But others worry about collisions.
"We are already beginning to see a large number of near misses in orbit involving Starlink," says Prof Hugh Lewis of University of Southampton,
He warns that stopping collisions between so many satellite constellations "may soon go beyond what humans or simple algorithms can safely manage"."
Looks like it's just a disaster waiting to happen, probably hastening the Kessler syndrome.

Got motivated with the amount of ridiculous woke takes on the earlier subject, then the party just continued here, which is a bit of less common fun where pretty much everyone just hates Blizzard at this point for reasons on all sides.
But sure I can start a discussion about how Secret of Mana does not deserve to be considered a top SNES game of all time or XCOM Chimera Squad did more things right than most realize if I'm supposed to earnsz muh game cred to hang out or "something"
Not wanting women to be harassed in the workplace is "so woke". You smell like a re-reg to me and we'll get to the bottom of it.

I find this aspect of the game industry distasteful. That people can still fail up.

There's so much f word in youtube videos I wasn't aware they demonitized anyone for it.
Yeah, that was a thing. You use to be allowed to swear, then like a year or two ago they demonetized most people for doing it, only the big channels or popular music videos were allowed to use naughty words. Also you can watch movies on YouTube where they say all kinds of filthy words if you paid them for it.
