Precisely.

And I've said this over and over again, lawsuit or not, accountability is going to come in some form or another. If nothing else, those who want their money back, have been getting it as a result of all this. And that's all funded by the JPEG ships they keep selling to hapless whales.

Pretty much, yeah. Still, you stirring poo poo brought it to my attention. I had no idea what was going on (I actually thought they stopped selling ships awhile ago. How little I knew). It saved my brother some cash as he got his money out after I told him what was going on. And I don't doubt that other people have done the same after your blog posts.

And even if your lawsuit doesn't happen for whatever reason, you are right. You simply can't take this amount of money and screw people without consequences.

If she feels the need to lie about her qualifications, it makes it seem that she is in fact not qualified.

If she didn't want trouble she shouldn't have been so revealing.

I'd hide/delete my LinkedIn/Facebook page if some weirdos decided to go in to stalker/research mode too. Jesus Christ man, who cares where she went to school?

I'm going to side with Ragequit on this one. Internet weirdos going into stalker/research mode is a good reason to utterly close up LinkedIn/Facebook. No one is required to share that information themselves on public media.

However, her qualifications may/will be subject to legal inquiry if it gets to that point. Provided they are done in a legal manner, Derek has his right to verify those qualifications to build his case.

There’s no release date yet for Alpha 2.0, but it does sound intriguing so far to see the Star Citizen development evolve further.
Big changes are coming in the Star Citizen Alpha 2.0 release

There's no launch date for the alpha 2.0 release just yet. There is, however, a 16-minute video featuring game designer Pete Mackay and physics programmer John Pritchett talking a bit more about what's coming, which you may enjoy below.
