Oh people! Fake suicides do not get us what we want…

January 2nd, 2009

Yay! for Blizzard! A 17 year old idiot wanted Blizzard to do something for him. When Blizzard wasn’t giving the kid what he wanted, well according to a newpaper report, the kid pretended to be suicidal to further his attempts to get what he wanted.

Blizzard acted pretty responsibly when they reported the kid. Why take a risk with that? Especially when you’re a corporation? It would be a PR nightmare if the kid actually committed suicide as a result of Blizzard’s inaction. And the police were right on the money to charge the kid. Idiots shouldn’t be rewarded for their stupidity and hopefully this lesson will make others think twice about doing the same thing.
