Honestly, as sad as it is today, I'm more surprised when I hear people in big business are genuinely good. I just make another mental note of people who will not get my money any more and move on.

However, I know there will be a few people who will look at them with interest now that these things come to light as a way to stick it towards people they don't like.

The world tires me.

What is Ghosting?

Not returning emails or phone calls, not answering the door, etc. Basically just kinda disappearing without a reason why. Particularly rude when it's someone you're in a business deal with.

This is actually having consequences for them. Edmund McMillen has dropped them as his publisher.
