What? These aren't the assault cases. Several game companies investigated inhouse and found enough evidence to fire him, iirc.
My best guess, is he went after low hanging accusations, after the fact. Afaik, this doesn't clear him, at all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'm going to call you on that, Acleacius. Which companies fired him, and on what evidence?
Techland ended a contract on mutual agreement, and there was no evidence made public of any wrongdoing while he did work for them.
Owlcat said they were disapppointed and surprised, but his work was already done.
Do you research, they did their own in house investigations, isn't that the way all corps do it?
What am I missing here, you clearly didn't even read the base post and now I need to do your research for you?
Ok, my turn to ask questions. Why don't you tell us how it works, then, pick a corporation and give us a break down.
How, you put, I'm call you on this one?
No one said there was evidence, all I said was there was an internal investigation, which you just corroborated.
They never give out the details, well unless it's some idiot like 'tiny hands mcdrump'.
Just like the damn public post, that was ambiguous as hell, and as mentioned they are generally sealed.
Yes, I did read the original post. I also did research, reading Techland's and Owlcat's official statements, plus interviews by their representatives with media, plus Avellone's side of the story on his Medium page. I also tried to find any evidence made public showing illegal behavior by Avellone and found none... only hearsay.
You, on the other hand, claim "no one said there was evidence", yet it is clearly visible in the original post and in the following quotes that you used the phrase "several game companies investigated inhouse and found enough evidence to fire him". You are contradicting yourself. You yourself say there is enough evidence found to fire him. And anyway, if no one said there was evidence, then there was no public reason to fire him other than fear.
Perhaps you are correct in your generalized assumption that all corporations operate that way, but if a corporation found evidence of illegal behavior and did not report it to the police during an official crime investigation, the corporation may be breaking the law, and I doubt they would hide such evidence when lawyers come requesting it.
