Op Ed

Kotaku - A Beatdown in Which No One Threw the First Punch.
That's his prerogative. Penny Arcade is not my business and I've never attended PAX. But the fact remains this incident never would have become the Internet scandal it is if Krahulik didn't decide it involved him and it involved Penny Arcade. There's a difference between saying, for example, "The Boston Red Sox endorse what I write," and "I'm going to a Red Sox game." Well, PAX is a Red Sox game in this case; all Christoforo said was he was going to it, which more than 100 exhibitors do in Boston.

maybe the whole company is a piece of shit, and now they are gonna be around longer because they've appeased people by firing this asshole.. and will be able to scam more people out of there money, etc. so its actually a BAD thing he got fired instead of taking the whole place down with him

who knows.. you can play the speculative angle all day long, it doesnt impress me or "justify" anything for me.. its guesswork

in general, if the world ran "the way it should" then everything would be a utopia and we would all ride unicorns across rainbow bridges to gumdrop fields and so on.. but its not, so there is way more than enough "shoulda woulda coulda" to go around.. this shit is ridiculously petty in a comparative sense, its commonplace, and the entire business world is basically a fucking cesspool of "wrongful" actions... people just approve of it when its "legal" or "politically correct"

so fuck it, go ahead and go berzerker on this fool and then pat yourself on the back for being a "good guy", its just what we need, let me tell you

Yes you are right, no one should ever do anything to correct the cases of abuse. It's the path to ruin. Ignoring it makes it much better.

Domestic abuse? Police should beat the wife some more, because the husband obviously knows something we don't know...if he wasn't beating her she might become a female hitler.

Pedophilia? Those children asked for it, you don't know it's speculation to assume they didn't.

Animal abuse? Those dogs were probably going to bite someone someday, so better to make them live in their own filth and fight for our amusement.

The people who stop these things are not "good guys", and it's obviously not what the world captain has told you. So fuck it.
