EA/Maxis employee gets banned on NeoGAF for 'attempting to distort the news aggregate'

DSOGaming writes: "Before starting this article, let me tell you that we’ve seen such behaviors in the past on various boards. However, it’s really funny when a developer – that does not reveal his or her true identity – tries to damage control with an anonymous account on either a gaming website or a gaming board/forum. NeoGAF’s member ‘GlassBox’ attempted such a thing and got banned for trying to ‘distort the news aggregate‘ all without actually disclosing to anyone there that he or she works for the ‘company in question.’"

I posted this in another Sim City article when someone mentioned karma but no one saw it and I just have to share it again. Even I laughed at it, and it was my little work:

"You know the kind of game publisher that does bad things and wonders why their sales suck? Well, that was me. Every time something good happened, something bad was always waiting around the corner. Karma. That's when I realized, my DRM policy had to change. So I made a list of every game with bad DRM I had ever made and 1 by 1, I'm going to patch out all of my mistakes. I'm just trying to be a better games company.

My Name is EArl. "

Let's hope this positive pro-consumer approach spread and becomes the obvious and only acceptable business model - because let's face it, games don't come cheap nowadays and if on top of that we get them sliced down to DLCs or restricted based on whether you're online or not and so forth... that's gonna simply kill the envy of every gamer to support the devs that usually don't have anything to do with their publishers evil practices. Gamers around the world should reprove and vote against this plague..
