Then why does it seem like there's always a red post in stupid threads, memes, and bad running jokes, but never in response to something that may actually be considered important?

This thread and a few others as exceptions, of course.

How many of those red posts are from Zileas, Trolling Director?

...thinking back on it, a lot of them. But not all of them.

Because I can say I like puppies without fear of undermining Riot's user-facing plan for announcing our puppy opinion to the world?

I can't talk to you about new maps, or what happened during the tournament, or why we banned whichever group of people a month ago. In fact, as an engineer, most of what I do is completely uninteresting to most people. But when there's something I do know, like for example why customized recommended items are breaking for certain characters, I respond and work out how to fix that issue.

As much as I'd love to respond to every single one of your concerns, I cannot.

Alright, that all does make sense.

Speaking of broken customized recommended, though. This seems to be affecting Kha'zix, at least for me. All my other customized stuff is working just fine.
