I never said that this thread wasn't targeted maliciously. Some retard redditor thought it would be funny I guess. The only thing I'm saying is that it wasn't a friendly fire incident. If one stupid redditor can do it, I'm sure someone else can do it back to reddit.
The news hit on Reddit first, I know because I saw the thread pop up on the /r/dereksmart subreddit, and checked it out myself. I saw that obscure posts from years ago that never would have been posted here were down. It took a few hours before this thread noticed at all (and started posting links to more reddit images LOL). Again, I never said that the redditors bot wasn't going through this thread at all, I just said that the original strike on reddit was a separate attack and deliberate. As to who did it... I don't know and will probably never know.
OK so it wasn't a first strike bot on SA and the reddit pictures didn't get deleted because we started posting them here but because someone (from here) was going over reddit and getting them deleted one by one (I presume). If that was the case why would we start banning pictures that "favored" us? Pictures that were on reddit but that we were reposting here in order to mock them?
Since you don't deny that there was a bot trawling this thread are you saying that there were two bots? The first one ours and the second one from reddit? But then why did we turn off our bot at the same time as reddit turned off theirs?

Say what, why don't you post the sequence of events as you imagine they took place and then we see if it makes any sense at all?

I can never get grilled asparagus to come out good. Am I supposed to blanch before grilling??? What about skinning the stalks???

My secret to grilled asparagus is to place a bundle in aluminum foil after removing the hard end of the stocks. Add fresh mushrooms and onions and pepper, but the secret is adding some parmesan cheese and olive oil. Toss that around so the oil coats all pieces. After a gentle toss, add more pepper or parmesan cheese to your liking.

Also, add something lemony to it. Maybe a but of concentrated lemon juice or even a lemon pepper seasoning.

Hello, person reading the thread closely enough to have an opinion on image bombing but who doesn't know who Karl is after the last couple of days.

Friendly advice- if you were in fact gullible enough to actually buy an account and platinum upgrade on the basis of the fake spoiler-tag joke, you might want to consider whether or not your critical thinking ability and bullshit filter are really up to the task of posting in this thread.

I mean, it MAY be true, like some conspiracy theories do turn out to be true, but you don't have a shred of evidence for that.
As to whether she was instrumental or not in the marketing of the company, or whether the funding would have gone the way it did without her... well, elite dangerous rocked up at the same time and hasn't had the same level of funding success, so I don't think that is true. You don't just raise $94 million by chance.

I agree that CIG over-promised and will probably have to drop some features, that said, I never saw Sandi over-promising. It was normally CR in 10FTC.

Well if you're right then we're in for a shitstorm. I see no evidence of this however. Also forum activity isn't a great way of analysing funding. The SC forums are the most toxic set of forums I've ever seen and lots of people avoid them. It's even more of an insane echochamber than reddit.

gently caress knows. Depends on if they run out of money or not right? lol. I reckon they can make a reasonable game that they have been talking about. A lot of crazy poo poo they talk about (alien languages, etc.) may well not make it, but I don't really care that much about that tbh.
