A shitty faux-journalistic gaming site that pulls in 90% of their profits through stupid sensationalist bullshit is just as open to bribery as any other shitty faux-journalistic gaming site? Say it ain't so!
But honestly, these people see fit to harass someone for something they allegedly did, but companies that confirmably do this shit on a regular basis get the free pass? Why doesn't Activision get hacked or doxed or publicly shamed or even criticized for buying positive press for shlock titles like Tony Hawk Ride or Diablo III? And why don't shit publications like these ever get called out for accepting these bribes when it's just as much their fault, if not more? Oh right, because their customers are brainwashed morons, utterly incapable of maintaining an independent thought for longer than 0.2 seconds.
"Gee, the last eight Activision games I bought were crap... but my lords at Game Informer gave their latest turdpile a 9.5 out of 10 so I'd better rush out and buy it right away! Then I'd better never say a single negative word about it because their loyal forum army will say mean things about me! And they must know better than I do because they use $2 words eight times per sentence and are successful enough to be able to afford sitting on the internet 18 hours a day, 7 days a week patrolling every single forum post and comments section on the entire Internet to call out anyone who dares speak against the mighty ACTIVISION!"
Fucking A, people.
