“ I can’t speak to the fairness or unfairness of residuals or lack of residuals for programmers, artists, composers, and others who game developers and publishers, because that’s not my job, and I don’t know what, precisely, their contracts are.”
So that means basically, you DO NOT CARE. Fine, why should I care about your fail attempt at converting yourself into an acting bureaucrat? Go whine somewhere else because at least in this medium, intelligent people DO get it. Don’t embarrass yourself to an audience that I’m positive don’t share your point of view. You should be grateful to be chosen among some other people as there are thousands other guys out there with the same or better ability of yours.
