At times, words can speak louder than actions. And what you say to a company that owns you can get you in trouble. As shown with fourzerotwo's somewhat unprofessional behavior in a recent blog of his:
Can you guys please stop interviewing this guy, talk to someone who actually works on the Dev Team at Treyarch and knows what the fuck they’re talking about. Not Senior Super Douche Noah Heller from Activision - who apparently has never played the game and doesn’t even work at the developer.
I understand that you don't like the guy. That's fine. I didn't like it when Heller decided to slam Ubisoft and Gearbox's Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway earlier this year say it was "inferior" to World at War. But dude, he works for the company that owns YOUR company, and saying stuff like that could get you FIRED. Or get you into the "public apology" mode to save your ass. This is like saying how fat and ugly your boss is while in the break room and he just waltzes in. Do you expect him to be chortling with you? No, usually they fire people that do that.
See, there's nothing wrong with saying this to a friend or something, but for a public blog? Not really the smartest of moves.
I hope you got that apology post prepared, or expect to get noticed on Kotaku as "former Infinity Ward community manager fired by Activision for remarks against employee" and looking for another CM job. Which there's probably not that many.
