Hello Commandos


Here's a true story for you all.
I went to an appointment today because I am finding it hard to concentrate on stuff and the doc wants me to get checked out.
I got the wrong day it isn't until Thursday :v:

They can believe what they want at this point.

In the end, every nerd wants to be right. I wanted to be right about nothing being wrong and Smart being full of horseshit. I wanted to be right about SC being a big success and making me a good chunk of change in the process.

But when you step away from the sepia fuzzy glasses, and ask questions that should have an expected answer (but don't), that's when that sucking sound starts to be audible.

And that's why I can say I was wrong, and I'm doing something to correct it.
I'm glad you were able to take such a frank look at things once evidence started piling up instead of digging yourself deeper and deeper into the hole. The more invested you are, financially, emotionally and otherwise, the harder that can be.

So what exactly does Bootcha get by pretending to be an investor for 3 years? That's the most pathetic loving thing someone could do (though the SC true believers are pathetic enough to do it) and says more about the person who does it than the people who believe it.

What's the end game? 'lol, totally pranked you!' 'You wasted 3 years of your life on this and Star Citizen is still a pile of poo poo.' There has to be a scam or a turn-around, like in Eve. Pretending to be an investor does nothing and you look doubly retarded when the project inevitably burns to the ground.

These people have the worst critical thinking skills, but what do you expect from people who buy jpegs?

He needed some ships to keep up with the need to review. Meh I've spent money on worse. You need a Platinum Upgrade to view this link. Nowhere near the top of that list though so I will sit in comfort with #27.

That guy, and the rest of the redditors in the thread peeking in on you, singled you out for attention despite the fact that your investment is ultimately irrelevant. This fact never seemed to cross their minds when they decided to try to discredit you at best and have your money stolen from you at worst.

Okay Peter,
I'm having my Reddit Legal CrewTM write up a demand letter. I know where you live, I know where your grandma lives in Boca. That's her in the wheelchair!



If I don't receive my cats or my money back, I'm going to go to the feds. Those cats are on the books of my brother in law's animal shelter as "fostered." If I don't at least get the adoption fees back, I'm ruined! And, the kitties went across state lines, that's FEDERAL! YOU'RE the Ringleader! I'm not going down for this, catFUCKER!

Oh, and Derek? My legal team tells me that we have an open and shut case for nailing your rear end with tortoise interference! Help m get me the cats back, or you're done.
