Blizzard says Woops

Blizzard recants

This is the first time I can remember Blizzard reversing a decision like this.

I did read an article that they implemented this due to a Korean Law.

My wife asked why they can't just implement that change in Korea. Working for a software company, I told her it should be easy. We change which labels clients use for the same field all the time in our DB.

I'm guessing some Junior Executive that doesn't know how the Internet, technology, or the culture works decided to try and save money from maintaining different code for the forums in different cultures.

  1. Not that I'm a big poster on the forums, but I do post once and a while...and I was relieved to see this change. Yay for community outrage?
