Its not wrong, its sarcasm.


It's not sarcasm, it's not being intelligent enough to understand the correct phrase.

Sarcasm would be stating: "I care so much about Kotick's compensation that I'll drop whatever I'm doing right now and nit-pick it to the umpteenth degree."

Gamer's have spoken with their wallet and made him rich , got a problem with that?

If the products his company sells did not sell he would not be making money like this , he is basically the CEO of the McDonalds of the gaming industry.

And as far as sports stars , their wages are based on league revenue , ticket prices , TV and licensing deal etc. they earn a proportion of what the sports league does and are confined to that , there is no open checkbook in sports unless you are the Yankees, Dodgers ,Red Sox or Angels in a league with no salary cap.

It's not sarcasm, it's not being intelligent enough to understand the correct phrase.

So you are admitting you aren't intelligent enough to accept that both are correct.

We've gone through this, you don't like it because you don't like it, as a lawyer you should know you, rules are rules and we go by the rules.

Both are not correct. Your ignorant usage is completely illogical. If you claim it to be sarcasm, it's the weakest sarcasm ever stated. "I could care less" is only used by people who aren't intelligent enough to understand the language and are poorly imitating what they heard smart people say...like those people who say "for all intensive purposes".

I'm not the one making that claim, its factual.

"What Should You Do? Stick with "couldn’t care less.""

http://public.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/care.html

"Clichés are especially prone to scrambling because they become meaningless through overuse. In this case an expression which originally meant “it would be impossible for me to care less than I do because I do not care at all” is rendered senseless by being transformed into the now-common “I could care less.” Think about it: if you could care less, that means you care some. The original already drips sarcasm, so it’s pointless to argue that the newer version is “ironic.” People who misuse this phrase are just being careless."

Here's a thought for you. Compare these two statements:

1. I could have less food.
2. I couldn't have less food.

Which statement above means "I have at least some food", and which means "I don't have any food"?

And also that if you say his name three times backwards in the dark & in front of a mirror, that he appears behind you to take your soul and deliver it to his master.

A common misconception that's caused people to believe it's simply an urban legend; you actually have to say it three times diagonally.

This is what buying every iteration of Call of Duty does.


If you create/produce/run the most popular franchise in gaming then you will make that much money too.

I say, good for him.

^ Hey, just like politicians & lawyers (especially politicians)...
They make all the money, all the while bemoaning the plight of the poor & middle class(all the while living like kings & stealing from the very people they claim to support)...but when it comes to actual work they have their interns or special hired people do all the work while they go play golf, or fly off on their private jet, or dine with movie-stars, or practice their lies in front of the mirror.


You don't start off with those luxuries...you EARN them with years of hard work.


^ Yeah, whatever...
Obama was a Senator for only a few months before he decided to run for President. Before that his job was Community Organizer, which is just a fancy way of saying.."working people up into a frenzied mob"
And even Bush didn't do much other than grow up and go to college.

I get what you are saying though...some do work hard & put in a lot of effort...but some have it handed to them, and will do little work but take all the credit, but none of the blame. They are fools, but even bigger fools are the ones who vote for them and can't bother to read between the lines & parse their words to see the lies and rhetoric.
Politicians though love to spew out propaganda, and yet they live like Kings & Queens. Some for life.
There should be term limits as to how long people serve in Washington.

It's not as if he joined the company from out of no where a few years ago and is milking it for all its worth. As annoying as Kotick is, the man has been at Activision for over 20 years and largely in charge for almost the entire time. Despite the bone headed things he'd done and said over the years he's earned that stock.
