And then suddenly...silence

Blue posts have ceased.

Was it because of the twitter drama?
Can't help it.
Posting impassionately, they say you don't care.
Posting nothing, they say you ignore.
Posting with passion, you incite trolls.
Posting fluff, you say nonsense.
Post with what facts you have, they whittle down with rationale.
There is no win.
There is only slow degradation.
Take note. It is the first and only time you'll see someone in my position make that position.
You can be me when I'm gone.
There were blue posts? Such mythical things do not exist in these lands.
Blue posts come in short bursts, almost never address real concerns, and often contain some statement about “improving communication” before going silent again.

They’ve been talking about “improving communication” for so long that it’s been turned into a recurring meme whenever the frequency or quality of blue posts are mentioned.
It's like those days when you wake up and you make exercise goals but don't have the discipline to do it for more than a day. They decide they are going to communicate and then realize it's actual work.
Hopefully it’s understood that blue posters can’t post around the clock and also have responsibilities outside of the forums.

That said, Ythisens is posting.

Blue posts slowed down on the weekend, and are picking back up on a Monday?

That is just crazy talk.
Create a thread about turtles. That should lure them out.

Well, how do you think you'd feel if the only answer you could give is "we're looking into it", and then everywhere including your personal twitter gets messages about "lulz wow sux devs sux u sux"

It's a thankless job that is treated terribly where everyone wants you fired for things you have control over, and also things you have no control over.

And 9/10 times people want you fired for the latter, but will use the former as an excuse.
The mods changing a user's post title to "hyperbolic" and then locking the thread in the most dismissive manner possible is not helping.

I’m pretty sure that player wasn’t looking for help, and were just on a hellbent rant, over the top, trolling and trying to spread misinformation don’t really work well for people “looking for help”.
Blizzard in damage control now.

That's irrelevant. A few bad apples doesn't mean the entire community should be exposed to their unprofessionalism.
Probably not.
What twitter drama? o.o
Management having a talk?

Lore told obnoxious !@#$heads that if they're %^-*heads to him on his personal twitter he'll block them. Said obnoxious !@#$heads are trying to get people riled up over it and failing.

You know, there are tons of people in every industry that are in their position not completing their task duties so they can continue to be employed. Everyday, everyone is getting older and as we get older, we fear we might not have enough money or retirement plan that will last until our last breath.
