Recently (07-July-2014) there was an article posted in the GameDev.net Soapbox titled "Is the Game Industry a Bad Place to Work?" I found the article to be poorly researched and written and made that assessment known in the comments.
Today I received a -3 down-vote for making that comment. Not a big deal, really, but what annoyed me is that the entire article was then deleted from the GameDev site.
Now, I'm a big-boy with thick enough skin to live through being a musician and an educator (post-secondary). The author can hate the fact that I pointed out flaws in a poorly thought-out rant until the cows come home, but what I find suspect is down-voting negative comments and deleting the article. If you need to hide your tracks you probably shouldn't be making them in the first place.
The game industry is a small place. Petulant behavior doesn't bode well for longevity.
