Those requirements are insanity. Who wrote this up? haha

A company who already has somebody for the job but is legally obligated to publish the position publicly. So they create a super specific position that fits 100% the person they want and then hire that person. That kind of stuff happens all the time.

Okay, I'll ask. Is this impressive or unimpressive? Every reaction I've seen has been some smug "Metallica is playing Blizzcon. *yeah*" instead of people actually saying what they mean.

Sorry, not a metal fan.

Metallica is the biggest Metal band in the world and one of the biggest band in the world...period. So yeah it's a big thing.

I'm actually tempted of getting the virtual ticket just for the show.... Don't care about Blizz games.

@spankmealotus: They had a couple of bad years in the late 00' but they've been great live for the last 5 years or so.

Yeah, what really sucks is the other developper working with him (who has a 2y old kid apparently) who is now out of work because his partner went all crazy on Twitter. Hopefully he'll be able to fall back on his feet quickly and find another job.

I'm really glad that both CBSi websites finally officially said something (great letter from Jeff btw). Not because I've ever doubted any of you guys' integrity but I think that not saying anything was not the best solution.

Yes all the stuff that #GG did is terrible, yes you guys have obviously been against it since the beginning (with reason!). However, I think that the original idea of #GG of opening a discussion about ethic in the industry is a good thing. Keeping that in mind, I think it would be easy for us to take the journalists' silence (not just on GB) as a way to kind of burry the original issue under all the disgusting things that have been said and done in #GG.

I just hope that both sides of the question, fans and journalists, will be able to have a more open discussion about that stuff in the future without it automatically turning into a shit show.
