Activision's actions so far remind me of Midwestern Mexican food: they use all the right words, but it doesn't really mean what you think it does.

Things Activision is willing to do:
1. Loudly proclaim that they want the best culture for all employees.
2. Appoint a law firm to investigate 
3. Fire executives.

What they won't do:
1. Hire a law firm that focuses on harassment instead of union-busting.
2. Fire Darth Vader, whose human name is Fran Townsend.
3. Eliminate arbitration, which would be an actual, huge benefit for employees.
4. Stop actively trying to prevent unionization.

What this all means is that Activision is willing to do anything as long as they don't lose a scintilla of control. 

So the words describe all the right flavors, but the flavors don't seem to actually be in the food.
