So, it seems that whole "Always ONline" thing may be fake after all.

Adding to OP!

Am I the only one that thinks this went a little far? I mean ya the guy made some pretty stupid comments that someone in his position should never have made, but still losing his job? is it really worth this? we've all said stupid shit we'd like to take back

Who is Adam North? And why are Microsoft on some firing spree - that's two people now. And they are both named Adam. Are they just going in alphabetical order?

Sorry. Misspelled his name in the title. It is the same guy.

Bad PR has sunk companies. The things you say, if you're in a high position in a company, can very easily hurt the company it'self. Thus, the company tries to cut loose the loudmouth before it does any further damage and to salvage their own reputation.

They view as "It's the company or you, and it sure as hell isn't going to be the company..."

Ah, in that case, we already have have a thread for it. We had a second one but it was obsolete and fired deleted.

Can't say he didn't deserve it.
