Ubisoft Investigating Misconduct

An Update from Ubisoft has word from the publisher on the actions they are taking following recent allegations of misconduct in the gaming industry, which included accusations against some of their employees. They offer apologies, say they will be announcing additional measures in the coming days, and for those who seem to think that there's a rush to judgment involved, they explain the steps they are taking to investigate:
Concerning recent allegations raised against certain Ubisoft team members: We want to start by apologizing to everyone affected by this – we are truly sorry. We are dedicated to creating an inclusive and safe environment for our teams, players, and communities. It is clear we have fallen short of this in the past. We must do better.

We have started by launching investigations into the allegations with the support of specialized external consultants. Based on the outcomes, we are fully committed to taking any and all appropriate disciplinary action. As these investigations are ongoing, we can't comment further. We are also auditing our existing policies, processes, and systems to understand where these have broken down, and to ensure we can better prevent, detect, and punish inappropriate behavior.

We will be sharing additional measures that we are putting in place with our teams in the coming days. Our goal is to foster an environment that our employees, partners, and communities can be proud of –one that reflects our values and that is safe for everyone.

Y'all even read the second paragraph of Blue's quote?
You know better than that. The majority don't even read past the 3 word headline.
A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test. It's a compassion test. It's a decency test. It's a social responsibility test.
Cover Your Eyes for even more protection.

Any devs who are smart these days won't harass coworkers. He certainly won't compliment her appearance or anything physical, because that's creepy as hell, and he won't ask her out, because there will ultimately end up being some kind of power dynamic there, even if just over time, and because no one feels comfortable having to work day in and day out with someone that they rejected. Or dated and then broke up with. Smart people know that apps are where you get laid, and dating in the workplace is a disaster you shouldn't want to deal with, because who in their right mind wants to combine work and pleasure?

Any game devs who are smart these days will employ security cameras in the work areas as a means of self-defense and as a means of getting to the facts. It's crazy--these days, in some places if you compliment a female or ask her out for coffee or a beer it sometimes brings on complaints of sexual harassment--it's not, of course. Visible cameras would chill most randy employees I would think...;) Also, they'd chill any female employees pondering making a mountain out of a molehill in search of $$$.
It is well known universally that I do not make mistakes--so, if you should happen across an error in that which I have written, please be assured that *I* did not write it!...:)

No wonder the game industry is trash, with only lazy turn based games or platformers ever coming out. Why would anyone with any talent be in the game industry? Anyone can lie and ruin your career in an instant. Without any sort of trial to find the truth whatsoever. As long as your accused, your ruined.

Oh well, rest in your own vomit game industry, was nice knowing you. Have fun with *another* minecraft clone.

Great take, 10/10 -
conservative/republicans seem to live in another world, getting kinda scary
