It's Almost Like There's A Pattern

Green Ronin (publishers of Blue Rose, Mutants and Pointlesscrunch, etc) has a reputation for taking performatively woke stances while supporting bad business practices, cheating freelancers, and supporting harassment campaigns against rivals and is now either engaged in sexual impropriety or has hung one of their own out to dry without proof.
Onyx Path (publishers of the off-brand licensed World of Darkness stuff) and RPGnet have a reputation for taking performatively woke stances while supporting bad business practices and harassment campaigns and is either complicit in sexual impropriety or hanging one of their own out to dry without proof.
It's almost like a pattern.
It's almost like if you have a company where people lie all the time and don't think very hard about what they say, genuine abuse slips through the cracks really easily.
It's almost like when I complain about an RPG company I know what I'm talking about.

  1. "...either complicit in sexual impropriety or hanging one of their own out to dry without proof." This statement looks like a Morton's Fork. Reading the official statement, it looks like it's both.

    1. No matter what happened, they handled it wrong--which is totally typical of Green Ronin's history of fucked up ethics.

  2. It happens all the time. A lot of men that were "outraged" good and proper about that Gamergate crap were also, shocker, sexual abusers themselves. I saw a list somewhere, but it's quite long.

    It's...not really funny, but the "extremely woke male feminist turns out to be a creep/rapist" is the "hardcore christian homophobe turns out to be gay" of the now.
