Blizzard "Clarifies" LGBT Policy

Kotaku covers the whole text, so I shan't cut and paste here - but the short version: Whoops. Um. Sorry. Our bad. Gay guilds are OK.

While the whole "this was always our policy" sounds like corpspeak (i.e. ... lying), since Blizzard was fairly unabashed about clarifying their policies in the first place ... this is a concillitory and fair response which provides players with the correct protections while also providing better channels for things like guild recruiting (literally). And it probably conveniently keeps Blizzard out of court, which is nice.
