    I just spent the last couple hours reading this, and I have to say, it's pretty intense.


    Do I think he's overreacting? Maybe a little. But some of the things he said, some of the quotes that he's alleged... that pretty serious. I'm taken aback a little, and I feel like I have to look at Rooster Teeth differently now... I don't want this to affect my perception of the great content that all the different departments of Rooster Teeth put out, but unless I hear some form of official statement from Rooster Teeth; and I know I won't this is going to be in the back of my mind any time I'm watching RWBY.


    I'm going to try and start keeping tabs on Rooster Teeth, whenever I can.

    Why do people keep necro posting this?

    It goes a solid week or more with nothing then some random person pulls it back up again.

    I also am concerned about SOME of the allegations (blatant mistreatment of employees and Monty's widow), but at the end of the day it's one guy's word. A guy who none of us knew even in the limited capacity that we know some RT employees. On top of that, he was going through an EXTREMELY stressful time in his life (some of which was his own fault) and sounds like he's being delusional. And we've already discussed why it would make no sense for RT to make on open official response.


    Now, I had already kind of lost the feeling of connection to the RT guys that I had well before all this. But I still appreciate them as content creators, and that's not going to change because of this mess. If something bad did go down, I'd like to know about it. But that's almost certainly not going to happen. What I DO know, is that of the hundreds of employees who have worked at Rooster Teeth, the vast majority were happy and seemed like good people. The only exceptions I've heard of are this guy (who doesn't seem very reliable to me), JJ (whose single complaint was unjustified, and who said he was thankful for the time at the company), and Kathleen (who clearly had some kind of personal disagreement with RT, but has refused to speak about it and instead continues to do VA for them and support the fanbase). If RT was half as evil as this guy says it is, I would expect disgruntled employees to be pouring out of the woodwork.


    Also ninja is right: we've pretty much discussed this to death.

    This thread is one of those cases where the "correct" move is to lock it, but that could be viewed as trying to silence the discussion. So it's just kind of stuck in limbo where every so often someone finds it and wants to add their voice to a long dead topic.

    I thought that might be the case I was going to ask to have it locked but then I thought there is probably a reason they havent done so yet.

    In reply to DiMono yes but  even reddit locks threads after a while.. it lets the commenters know that .... "sorry this discussion is over ... move a long"  while it may not be "nice" it is "necessary". ie topics from 1st grade are not accepted when you are a Senior.

    Best thing I guess would be to unsubscribe to the thread... but I don't want to... in case someone posts something stupid so one of us can point it out....
