Gay Rights in Warcraft

Over the past week Blizzard has been facing some opposition from the GLBT community. It all began when a player began recruiting members for her guild. She was issued a warning, and told not to bring up a topic related to sensitive world issues. The player quickly responded by posting the events on the World of Warcraft forum, and news spread to video game blogs, a law firm, and then to the research community.

The issue has been resolved, but this has been a difficult time for all parties involved. This can remind us that it is important to fight for the rights of all of our patrons.

As an avid WoW player and general Blizzard fan, I'm very happy that they admitted their mistake and apologized to the people involved. I know I would have been dissappointed in them otherwise...
