    Do you guys think that Microsofts workplace practices might actually get worse once Obsidian is assimilated into the fold?

    Feargus would be eaten alive by Microsoft's corporate sharks before he even says hi. Those guys play hard, man.

    Not very cool of Avellone to disclose why someone leaves the company. I don't care about how it makes Obsidian look like, it's more of a common courtesy towards your friends and former coworkers not to blast their reasons out into the open.

    Where did MCA do this? All I see is restatements of known facts. Avellon didn't 'disclose' shit, unless you're referring to something else than the 'discussion' with the Obsidrone on Twatter.

    Nevermind--he implies right in the tweet that Davis left because of problems with management. I don't think that was public.

    Most people leave their jobs because of problems with management. Given what we know about Feargus and gang, you can't tell me that that won't be the first thing you think of when someone leaves that place.

    When did Davis leave? Where is he now?
    Did Feargue tell him to choose Obsidian or Codex? :)

    And he was defending the management. I guess we won't be seeing him here. Not saying he will even need Codex now that he's at Blizzard.

    People magazine would never get involved in this high stakes dispute between Feargus and MCA by throwing their hat in the race.

    Well, subtlety doesn't seem to be his forte. :D

    And if you gaze long into the codex, the codex gazes into you...

    If these are the results ...
