Why I am stepping away from WOTC for a bit.

I have been thinking about this for a long time and how to voice it without sounding angry, condescending or even biased. But also because I didn’t want to give the wrong explanation by accident. I didn’t want to miscommunicate. So here it goes. Yes, it is to do with Mike Mearls at WOTC. Firstly, I believe Mike Mearls did something horrible and gave his support to some disgusting people and thus, by proxy, hurting a ton of other folx in the process. I know some people don’t think there is enough evidence, but the evidence I have seen is enough to make me believe it. You don’t? That’s your call. This is mine. Suck it up if you have to. I believe getting him put aside was the right thing to do. And putting him aside was enough consequence for me to believe he had done something the company thought was potentially libellous or disastrous because otherwise, a corporation like HASBRO doesn’t admit to responsibility even if it is by action and not words. If you disagree, refer to the previous paragraph. Now… believe in second chances. I believe in redemption. I believe people can learn and can get better and realise they have fucked up and must do better. I want to believe that Mearls can do that. I am even prepared to believe he has. Benefit...
