    There's relatively good odds I might have been the one that said that "I dunno, maybe I'm living in a fantasy world but perhaps some people put their integrity and principles above and beyond the almighty buck. Some of us have to live with ourselves" bit, but I honestly can't remember the thread well enough to be sure.

    It might as well have been.  I consider it a sad state of humanity that, "selling out your ethics for money is pretty underhanded" is answered with, "your mouth is full of man-dick" and the former gets pegged as the deluded moron of the two.

    I'm not exactly sure what the expression means, either.  If you read the original article you would see I'm just repeating what was said in it.  It's probably something like, "well, you must be a pathetic sycophant so desperate to make other people like you that you are constantly fellating them."  Of course, this is a really pathetic way to answer any appeal for ethical behavior.

    It's a bit off-base as to the point of "I disagree with what you're saying."  They're basically just saying a CSR can't speak plainly because, generally speaking, many customers are so over-reactionary that they can't handle the truth.  This, unfortunately, is a bit of an ethical override brought about by popular demand I cannot deny.  Still, two wrongs never made a right, so it remains a double-wrong that is an industry practice through lack of better alternative.

    So I guess that, under a deeper examination of what happened here, I (if that was me) was not so much a moron as I was relatively bright to point out that this double-wrong exists and GBob's response (which I partly agree with) was so very moronic as to join a hall of fame of other incredibly moronic things MMORPG developers say.  It was Sanya Weathers's mistake to interpret it was the other way around - just because something is an ugly industry practice brought about by necessity doesn't make it a smarter course of action.

    [edit: Actually, I'm going to quit while I'm ahead.  If I start spinning theories about how such moves like this undermined the economy, I'm sure I'm going to ruffle feathers without much of a basis to argue other than big picture conceptualization.]
