To everyone trying to pick a fight here by criticizing those who were offended: Please, let it go. Sometimes, people are offended by things that we don't find offensive. Can we agree not to call names and to respect their right to have feelings? The president of Blizzard did it. People who are coming into this thread and saying how the apology wasn't needed are not only making themselves look bad (this is my subjective opinion, and I acknowledge that others might disagree), but they're prolonging this whole ordeal. If you think this whole ordeal is a waste of time, why are you dragging it out?
The president of Blizzard apparently thinks it's worth apologizing for. Even if you disagree, the more you disagree here, the longer you're dragging it out. I've read the first four pages of this thread, and only two people have QQ'd and not accepted the apology. Since the offended side is now happy, and the president has thought it best to apologize... can we please stop talking about this?
