Punished for not liking Jay Wilson, Blue Post

  • http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6352085624#3

    I understand locking this thread. Makes sense. Don't openly flame a blizz employee on blizz forums, whatever. The 2 problems I have are;

    1) A blue not realizing that by posting on the thread themselves they are drawing more attention to the thread then it ever would have gotten in the first place. This simply causes even more negative feedback and more people to see the (probably justified) flame.

    2) A blue poster using the original post as an opportunity to threaten the community about what happens if you voice your (negative) opinion of a blizzard employee, instead of simply referring people to the Code of Conduct as would have been sufficient.

    Edit: For those of you morons that can't realize this, I was not the writer of the original post. The original post has nothing to do with me, the subsequent blue response is what caught my eye.
