    Just to clarify: if you make a bad product, people are allowed to abuse you?

          Sorry but I did specify publishers and companies multiple times. I’ve never once even alluded to personal harassment as I obviously don’t believe in that. I however do think that this game deserves the toxicity it sees and the company deserves to be harassed for not delivering on their promise of a worthwhile product for which many people paid nearly $70 (CAD).

            So erm… who is this “company” that reads the comments on the forum, again?

            As in, what’s their account name? Should be easy enough to direct the harassment at them instead of a dev or a social engagement rep or a support rep then, after all.

              Sorry, but being toxic about a company is distinct from harassing the individual CM. You’re gonna need to try a different line of reasoning because this is a pretty foolish one.
