Gratuitous use of the word "Retarded" is allegedly a Sandi trademark. Plus there's that scary scary threat at the end!

I refer you to legal.

No, it was more the printed passage.


That's the thing. That's a reference, but it appears to be printed, and refers to the Marche du Cannes.

Here's the thing: that's what lawsuits are for. We get to find out which aliases (if any), accounts etc they've posted under. And if the judge grants it, attorneys get to send in forensic IT people to go image all their devices, computers etc. This happens all the time; especially in legal action that revolves around stuff like this.

Only where ordered by a court. Remind me again, what are the grounds for your lawsuit?

Iron Tusk posted:

Also, you don't get anything first. In fact you wouldn't even be the one that send in the IT guys, the defendant will (you'll end up paying for it though), and even then they get to review everything before you even have a chance to see it since forensic searches turn up 99% extraneous poo poo.

Except that you also need a compelling reason for what you're requesting, you don't just get to say "hey man I lawsuit u, gimmie all the poo poo".

That's obvious. But thanks for educating those who have never been involved in lawsuits before.

Iron Tusk posted:

If you're suing over enforcement over the TOS you'll get to ask for communications directly relating to that subject and no more, poo poo posts on reddit probably wouldn't make the cut.

That would depend on a specific cause of action in the complaint and whether or not the judge lets it stand. If there is a defamation or similar cause of action, it's all covered under cause.

And I never said anything about suing over a ToS being the reason for this request. You did.

Iron Tusk posted:

Also, dispatching forensic IT people is pretty rare in most litigation unless you're the fuzz.

False.

I have done it twice. I know of several lawsuits in which they have been done. In fact, practically every big case you read online and in which material was disclosed, obtained this information from this sort of reveal, and not discovery (which is prone to shenanigans) whereby you ask nicely and hope they provide the material requested, don't taint the evidence etc.

Iron Tusk posted:

False.

I have been involved in two lawsuits between 2010 and 2012 in which we (my attorneys) filed for it, the judge granted it. Then the attorneys sent in a third-party (Asset Control, Inc) to do it. They had a judge signed sub-poena. They went to the party, got it all done etc. They billed the attorneys, who paid for it, then billed my retainer account.

Iron Tusk posted:

False.

The attorneys got to see it first, filtered through what they needed, then provided me (and the court) with the pertinent data.

Ah, but that could be a ploy to sell the impression that it's someone foreign.

Notice that Karl has seemingly disappeared without a trace. So I think, given all prior evidence, we can agree that Karl is definitely Matilda2013, the male prostitute on Reddit who is not really a German auditor.

We're nearly there guys. If anyone had told me on the day of the kickstarter that CIG would raise $100M... heh, I would have called them a nutter.

But the really crazy part? We did this with around a million people. Not millions - a million. At a time in the gaming industry when we challenge the value of any title that dares to push its retail price beyond $60 on the back of traditional publishing, we've on average pledged just shy of $100 each - on the back of a promise and the sweat of a few hundred devs. They've shown it's possible, more money won't guarantee this thing takes off, but gently caress me if this isn't the most inspirational "Icarus tale" I've ever had the privilege of being a small part of.

Thank you guys, you're making my dream game come true too.

Were those both against Allen? In which case the actual case itself revolved around what Allen actually had in his possession. I note that was settled, though.

Did you engage in another lawsuit in 2012?

Assuming that only Sandi could be such a nasty piece of work like Karl is pretty much the same as redditors assuming everyone who criticizes the game is a Derek Smart sockpuppet.

When my brother and I were growing up, around the ages of 6 and 7, we had an 18 year old neighbor who we looked up to. One day, he invited us to play a game, in which he threw a baseball down the street as hard as he could, and my brother and I fought to be the one that returned it to him. He had an arm too.Then he'd throw it again and we'd fight all over. He lived atop the "big hill" in the neighborhood, so this was about a 15 minute adventure racing down the street, finding the ball in some bushes, then wrestling my brother for it.

We would go apeshit trying to bring that ball back to him. And when we would, he would declare one of us the King of the Pass. Then throw it again.

That neighbor's name was Chris Roberts
