It was a calm, adult discussion of the bullshit nature of the recent Arenanet firings, the way John and Jessica Price's past hostilities fed into a reddit hate mob, and worries about kids growing up today with an internet that will never forgive or forget any stupid shit they say from a place of pain and later regret. It left me deeply uneasy about the tone we took here back in May.
The fan reaction to the podcast episode was, of course, misogyny boiled in cancer.
I'm not exactly champing at the bit to give my ears to something capitalizing on neonazi hatemongering like anything with the Bain brand attached to it, but I have to wonder how much of that blame they were putting at Price's feet.
Because if it's more than zero, they're part of the problem here.
