Honestly though, I find this offensive. Although I've never discussed this with you, you can probably guess why. Sweating a little... 

Although I can understand his point of view, I don't agree with it. :/

uvu I knows

and yea
I get that he's 'regretting it' and he apologized and stepped down, but he's still working there on the coding and I just do not want to support that

If others aren't that bothered with it, that's their standing point, but this just makes me super uncomfortable to know that my money goes to someone that views other human beings like this

But you're not directly supporting him and his views really? I've never played FR but it sounds like you're supporting an awesome game, and that's what should matter. The same thing happened recently to me, the lead singer of a band I frequently listened to was accused of child sex offence acts, and is now in prison serving a sentence. I considered not listening to their music, but then again just because this guy was a sick child rapist, what does that affect? The band has moved on without him and still made good music, and why should that man get the better of me and my enjoyment? Idk, that probably made no sense. Sweating a little...  I guess the summery was to not let someone's views/actions put you off something you enjoy that's more or less unrelated to them and their views.

Yeah, I understand your viewpoint though. If people stopped funding FR for that single person, then the entire site would go down and all of the awesome employees who work on that game would lose a job probably.

I wouldn't let it stop me though, 'cause it'd just feel like I'm giving satisfaction to them and spiting myself for nothing... But ignore me and my views, I'm a stubborn bugger. :P

Its more that the more traffic the site gets (without adblock) and people purchasing gems, they pay their staff with it
Thrage is still an employee, even though if it were any other company they would've been fired, immediately.
He just got off with a demotion and a suspension sort of.

The difference with this and the singer is that the singer got removed permanently and replaced/forgotten or w/e, while this guy is just in the 'background' right now :/ 
I did hear of that though but yea


The site is awesome, I don't disagree with that, I just disagree with their decision in allowing the guy to still work there despite the protests and therefor they already lost some numbers of players who just don't feel comfortable being in a position where someone like that works there and probably has access to their information and such

He should have been fired tbh... he didn't deliberately attack a particular person, but the things he said were extremely hurtful, opinion or not. :/

Yeah it does make a lot of sense tbh, there is a difference between my scenario and yours. You could be sly and start a huge petition to get him sacked. /shotsgentlyfired

Exactly
and the way how he thought the epilepsy attack from one of his games was part of a coder's rite of passage or something like that like
it could have KILLED the person
and then they joke about it 'oh well, they shouldve known better than to play video games'

It would be awesome ye, but I don't want to stir up drama since it /is/ in the past
if there is a petition, I'll gladly sign it, but until then I think informing new players of this will suffice

I don't think what a person thinks/writes on on the internet on an unrelated website, should have any connection to their work. The point that you're also dredging this up after 2 years is irresponsible. Things were handled in 2012 when this went on. The person in question almost quit because of it and took an extended break from the site. The issue from 2 years ago almost lost a human being their job. So maybe just, don't beat a dead horse.

^ About time someone said that. Thrage is entitled to his own opinions, and seeing as they were shared on his personal FB page, I don't really think it's anyone else's business.

It might not have a connection to their work, but knowing stuff like this definitely has now made me uncomfortable.

People can lose their jobs from what they post on social media every day, so especially if you're in the semi-spotlight on a petsite that's rising in popularity like FR.
Even if it's all from 2012, the last screenshot ticks me off as well. That one is either from 2013/2014.

I didn't post this to convince other people to quit. The site is fun, the community is awesome, the staff that I know of are nice and they work awesomely. If they want to still play it then hey, who am I to judge. This was mostly just to show why I personally am not quitting the game, but I do feel like they should know something like this, especially if the guy is still working there, regardless of wether or not this was in the past.

Unsure why you must continue to go off of an issue that happened in 2012.
It's 2014, move on and be done with it, it's done and over with. Certainly not a topic to continue with IMO.

I don't like the idea of supporting someone with those beliefs

I like FR, and I like the idea behind it, but when there's people like him on the board I get uncomfortable by supporting the site

He resigned shortly after that incident
If he's still apart of the site, he's working low-profile pretty much unseen.

But really this was a 2012 issue, it was dealt with way back then and shouldn't be brought back to light now.
I'm not saying what he says is right, I don't like it much either. But it's best we move onward.

Still, even if this was from 2012, which I'm guessing the last screenshot isn't (either 2013/2014) it now makes me uncomfortable to even log in


Not that I was playing that much anyway the last few weeks, but it has made me think who on the staff might even share the same beliefs

I believe people should know about this, even if its from 2012
If they still continue because its fun, then they should
The game is fun, the community is fun, the staff members that I've seen are nice

This poll was more or less the reason why I'm just quitting, not to convince other people to drop it too (like I said, if they still want to play, woop for them cause it is a fun thing and the site is headed into a n awesome direction)

I just personally view it as potential drama that's no longer needed

in terms of drama, it's not needed, I agree
the guy apologized, resigned, but he's still working there so yea

certainly didn't mean to stir up drama uvu 

usually people would be just like 'heyy you play fr too right right' especially after a registration window and now I can just link em to this poll and show them why I personally quit it without having to explain it over and over should people note me about it again

It's not that people want to perpetuate drama as much as it is people wanting other people sensitive to this kind of abuse to know about it. I don't want to support someone who thinks this way of other human beings, and I wouldn't have known if others didn't spread it around as much as they did. 

So long as that person still works for that site and makes money off of it, we don't want anything to do with it. 

This kind of thing tends to flare up around registration windows. I think it's a good thing. Let the people know what they're getting themselves into. The game itself is great and fun, but this employee was incredibly hurtful and incredibly stupid. We will not reward that kind of behavior, and that's our decision. If we're expected to ignore him, then you can ignore our plight.

I'm not ignoring anyones plight, yes what he did at the time was wrong, but I still play the game. I play it for fun.

While everything in the post is completely accurate and on point with what happened (practically at the site's launch, I might add) Thrage is not the designer or the owner of the site. He is, if I am correct, the head programmer? Coder? Whatever you want to call it. He's not even that great. It's sloppy at best. But he IS a raging douche bag. He is the reason I have all but left the site. The only remaining step for me would be to deactivate or sell my account. 

I didn't know anyone DIDN'T know about this already, otherwise I would have told you about it sooner : / 

A lot of people have been getting the actual owner of the site mixed up with this cocksucker. The actual owner is, as far as I know, very nice. They should have fired this wad, though. Instead they just removed him from the public eye.

Dude Jessica is fantastic and I will buy her books but as long as this turd is still there I don't want anything to do with the site. Which sucks because it was so much fun ;3; at least if he's gone I'll have tons of stuff to go back to that will be worth a lot :D 

Again I'm so sorry you didn't know about it, I totally would have talked to you about it.
