How can a loving auditor be gullible enough to also be a SC whale? I guess it explains why he grew up to be such a weird sperg, tho.

I am not surprised. In my experience, a lot of auditors are assholes who always have to be right. They usually go into companies and point fingers going "you done hosed up son" and then "suggesting" i.e. telling people how to do it right.
In private social situations, when they don't get what they want and/or are not right in any context and you tell them, they will lash out and fight to the bitter end to be right.

In this case, an rear end in a top hat who can't admit to be wrong bought jpegs from a scammer. Instead of admitting it, he will fight to the bitter end to make it seem as if he was right all along by any means necessary.

Actually, Derek is batting over .500 on detailed predictions regarding CIG's future-- which is considerably better than CIG's record.

As amazing as this is to type (I honestly can't believe my brain is letting my fingers type it), "Derek Smart is one of the most credible authorities rendering judgment on Cloud imperium at this time."

I know this has proven a very difficult thing for Star Citizen backers to accept. It runs counter to the triumphalist "I've come to save PC Gaming and create the Best drat Space Sim Ever!" narrative of Chris Roberts and to the "destroyer of Coke Machines and producer of much derided games" reputation of Derek Smart. Yet the narratives are irrelevant to the facts since July, and the fact is, Derek has predicted CIG's steps with eerie accuracy.

We do not yet have confirmation as to their financial standing. Derek's claims that CIG was down to an 8 figure cash reserve as of late summer is perhaps his most outrageous claim of all-- yet it seems telling that Ortwin and Chris ignored this particular whopper in their detailed replies to the Escapist article. Nothing would have been easier to refute-- and no other claim The Escapist (and formerly Derek Smart) was more dire about the state of things at Cloud Imperium.

But even if Derek is proven wrong on this point, he's still batting over .500. His credibility is unfortunately higher than you estimate.

Well, I'd agree Derek can be a bully, but in ways both good and bad, he's considerably more than that.

I can think of no individual on this planet who has proven a greater threat to CIG than Derek Smart, save for Chris Roberts and Sandi Gardiner.

Yup, pretty much. But they're all in denial because, well, bogeyman and all. Wait until my next blog - which cleared legal last week - hits on Tuesday. They're really going to be mad.

On Why Redditors Just Don't Get It - A primer to any redditor considering buying an SA account for spying

Look you mongs since you evidently read this thread let me try to explain this to you... SA is like a wolf dog mutt pack and when you're running with the pack you will occasionally get a playful bite. It's to be expected, it's a bonding thing, in order to fit in you have to take any such nibbling it in the spirit it was made. You people overthink everything, sometimes a funny pic is a funny pic, you start foaming at the mouth in outrage and then get all surprised when the whole pack turns on you in the blink of an eye. It's how we can always tell you fuckers a mile away, you keep bringing attention to the stuff that pushes your buttons, to you everything is serious business and you can't help but getting all butthurt over the dumbest poo poo.

TL;DR: He can take a joke but I'd love if your precious Messiah or his wife dropped by one day, see if they could deal with teasing in an adult manner. From what I've seen so far I doubt it.

The issue is that they take everything so seriously, that even those who ought to know better, and know that Goons are all about LOLs, have seemingly lost their minds once they joined the Church Of Christ Roberts & The Latter Day White Knight Morons.

This is actually true, publicly identifying and accusing someone of sexual harassment is serious business, especially to someone married. I wonder why Wulf Dick isn't threatening to sue? Is he one of those "turn the other cheek" ultra christians?

He just sucks people into his fantasy world. His brother Erin (who may be a woman according to company documents) tries to implement his ideas. They just need to enter the game completion phase where Microsoft buys the company, fires :wtchris: and whips Erin until a game happens.

Somehow I don't think Microsoft will repeat the same mistake twice.

I guess that kind of makes sense, but like, his entire job is being sceptical when directors say things like "nah, you don't need to see financials" and "don't worry, game's coming out in two weeksTM". Yeah, the Star Citizen audit is ready for sign-off, we got a management rep saying that everything is fine and that everything bad is a wicked gamergate ruse.

Clearly the blog hinges on it being NOVEMBER,... something something original TOS (I did not understand that legalese).
And Tuesday probably because of some stuff that must first be done on Monday before the blog is published, something for which it must be Novemeber and Monday is the 2nd and therefore the first working day of November when you can file poo poo and stuff.

I.e. Derek will hand in suing papers on Monday and tell us about it in his blog on Tuesday when it is already done so CIG can't preliminarily injunct him or some legalese ninjitsu.

Disclaimer: I am as competent at law as CIG is at making a functioning game, so my information is pre-alpha, don't rely on it.
