it's sad and unnerving that this is a common practice in the industry. as far as i know, people should be given credit for the work they've coughed up on a project, regardless if they saw it through or not. even just a simple "special credit" should suffice.
the l.a. noire situation was even more disturbing because these people did not resign, they were redundated. what do you think? do you know of any other "horror stories" about questionable industry practices?
