This issue isn't exploitable over the web anyhow.

Probably/possibly not true. Proof of Concept code, written in JavaScript, may exist, from the same people who discovered the bug.

"Big titles must wait"

I misread this, and man, I did a double take.

I think you over-rate Eli, but I still agree with you.

No way to treat the man.

I would think any initiative that puts anyone who wants to work at a company at a substantial disadvantage because of race or sex

Seeing that there's a unwarranted minority of women at Blizzard, and their high turnover rate, the evidence suggests they are the ones at "a substantial disadvantage".

Which leads me to a question: I'm curious as why men currently being at a substantial advantage didn't warrant a mention.

And they specifically said what they were going to do, which isn't a quota. That also explicitly stated that they wouldn't have quotas. Yet you talk like they are instituting quotas, which are almost always used to limit women and minority candidates, not help them. Quotas are almost always used as a low ceiling, not a floor.

Because negotiating for a better wage when the only reason you got hired over an equally skilled male/majority was that you looked like a female/minority is gonna put you at a huge disadvantage.

It's obvious that you've got that backwards. White men aren't always hired because they're more qualified, but often because they are white men. In this country, being a white man is often a qualification in and of itself.

Actually, the only question that matters is what does their desire to make the company friendlier to women have to do with making it unwelcome to white males?

That's a paranoid statement.

And the best part
"We wanted to create a world where everyone was welcome."

Except, you know, white males
You mean the vast majority of the company? From the founders on down?

Maybe you should think that statement through.

Suggested response: Journalists should spend more time reporting on wars, less on banging their cohosts…

And there's the problem with bad employers right there. Instead of wasting money on that sort of nonsense pay/treat your employees better and you won't have to worry about them quitting.

No, that's the problem with corporate America. Companies are arguably legally bound to do nothing but seek and maximize profit, so there is no reason to consider whether or not profit-seeking causes any harm to society, the environment, or in cases like these, employees.
