    There’s no doubt many of you have been aware of harassment and Gamergate, it’s even made the mainstream news in recent weeks.

    During Mike Morhaime’s BlizzCon 2014 opening speech he urged Blizzard gamers to “reject hate and harassment”

    “I’d like to take a moment to talk about something serious. Over the past couple of months, there’s been a small group of people who have been doing really awful things. They have been making some people’s lives miserable and they are tarnishing our reputation as gamers. It’s not right.

    Blizzcon is a great example of how positive and uplifting gaming can be. Let’s carry tyhe good vibes from this weekend out into the world all year round. Ther eis another person o the other end of a chat screen, there are friends, our brothers and sisters our sons and daughters. Let’s take a stand to reject hate and harassment, and let’s redouble our efforts toi be kind and respectful to one another.

    Let’s remind the world what the gaming community is really all about”.

    I think you will all agree that there is no place for harassment in the Blizzard community or videogames.
