Now that Steven Seagul is mixed in with the sexual misconduct & now [edited] allegations, what will WG do now? Will his character & voice be pulled from the game?

Replace all references to him in the game with Erika Eleniak?

(I would be okay with this)

Anything older then seven years as far as I'm concerned are just women looking to make a quick buck off of the rich and famous

Well, it IS a Russian game, and we all know the great reputation Russia has for fostering and protecting human rights, so I anticipate ... nothing.

Depends on the wording of the contract.

If there weren't "morality clauses" in their contracts, Duck Dynasty and 19 Kids and Counting would still be in production.

Show me a conviction or some REALLLLLLY damming evidence. Otherwise IDGAF.

Allegations are a dime a dozen. Innocent until proven guilty. 

I'm not about to hang people because someone screamed "Whichcraft".

To be fair, those allegations are enough that I wouldn't let my daughter go anywhere near him.

It's North America. Allegations and "innocent until proven guilty" only means he won't get arrested. People (and movie production companies) will make up their own minds, for better or worse.

Besides, he's a Russian citizen now. If charges were brought against him, I could see Putin saying he's always been a "cultural ambassador" or something, preventing him from being prosecuted, just to twist some American tails....

The problem is that this public lynching is applied to everyone. Not just some movie star who has enough cash to not care if they never work again.

In the Jim Crow South they burned your house and business down if the community took to not liking you. Today they just harass your employer until they fire you, then make sure you can't get a job doing anything else. The end result is the same, you're homeless with absolutely nothing. At least those in Jim Crow had more restraint on what they did, since they actually had to leave their basement to do it and spend the money on supplies.

Then these lynch mobs pretend that they arn't doing the exact same thing those in the JC south did 80 years ago. Their hands are just as dirty, just in different ways.

I continue to refuse to participate in such barbaric behavior and will continue to denounce it.

Don't care. Wasn't play the game when he was available. They should bring back past premium captains for people who don't have them to get a chance (I feel the same about the ones I do have; they're OP and should never have been introduced frankly).

That's fair enough. As I said, I wouldn't let my daughter go near him, but I wouldn't harass him, or try to portray rumours as fact.

Where there's smoke, there may not be fire, but I'm not risking getting burned to find out.

TBH this is not "new" news. Heck I think she made the allegations shortly after the movie came out.

It's getting almost hilarious. The latest story about a certain comedian is the poster child of it. She accuses him of sexual assault and people run with it.

Read her actual 3,000 word write up of what happened and you find it's nothing but an awkward first date that had some consensual sexual contact, failed attempts at seduction, and ended with him calling an Uber for her when she asked to leave. Whoopie.

And/or being paid to smear someone that didn't say the right things.

Rocky is tailor made for a special captain, complete with appropriate quotes:

sink a ship with Devastating Strike , "Adrian" 

win the battle, "Adrian, Adrian"

torps incoming, "I had enough things in my face tonite"

ship on fire, "put it out"

DD asks need smoke (humor, here), "don't smoke that"

AFK shows up 5 min late, "Hey, where's your hat?"

after you get sunk, "You stop this fight, I'll kill ya'!"

Looked that up, yeah, only reason that made news is because of who he is, way overblown.

There's been so much effort drumming into our heads that "no means no", so that there's no need to interpret what we might see as mixed signals. Apparently that's not good enough, now we're supposed to read mixed signals again.

You're right though. Calling that sexual assault is ridiculous IMO.
