Woah. No need to go personal. I’m a left wing supporter of the Green Party not a right wing cancel-culture-nut. I just believe in natural justice and accountability… neither of which Jessica Price is displaying. You are right, she isn’t breaking a social media code of ethics… I’m saying there should be one.Just say what you mean. You're upset about the dreaded ... cancel culture! You know, that thing that doesn't actually exist, except in the fever swamps of right-wing rhetoric. In the real world there are very, very occasionally consequences for bad workplace behavior, but in general management types can survive just about any accusation, whether it's backed up or not.
But also, the person she was saying was fired didn't quit the company amicably. They left in protest because of a colleague's firing. That's still an extremely bad look for Paizo! You can go ahead and complain about the travesty of a non-journalist posting on Twitter without living up to some sort of journalistic standards of source-checking and corroboration, but, ultimately, you're flipping out about a relatively minor detail that has almost no bearing on the larger accusations being presented here. And yes, you'll die on this hill for a while, railing about how "Facts matter!" and such, but this story is exponentially bigger than your rage over a mistake (again, from someone who isn't a journalist, and has no relevant professional code of ethics that they're violating). This is simply how it goes in the real world. Social media is messy, people are messy, the way news travels is messy, that's just how things have always been, long before Twitter threads were a thing.
The people she talks about aren’t faceless execs. They’re household names in the gaming industry that have had some serious accusations leveled at them. These people stand up at conventions and are accessible to the public, through their work, social media. Scrutiny and oversight is a good thing, but it should be measured, judicious and considered. Not vengeful and salacious.
If she has stuck to the key, matters, and delivered them professionally, I would have a lot more respect. If she had approached the matter with less sarcasm, less sensationalism and less personal animus then her points would land with far more respect.
The stuff reads terribly for Paizo. I don’t accept that ‘social media being mess’ is grounds for Jessica to behave unprofessionally either.
