gently caress's sake guys. It is not okay to post a child's actual personal information online to incite bullying. No, it does not matter if they started it. No, it does not matter if the dumb little bastard made it easily available. Whether or not they are crippled is irrelevant. They are a child. Are you a child?

I can get behind a lot of Smart's hilarious antics, but not this.

You new posters who only joined for the Star Citizen thread, you aren't fighting a war and posting here doesn't mean poo poo, even if you thought you were being a rebel. You're unhappy with the development of a computer game and joined a forum to talk about it, we're laughing at stupid poo poo in a place that values humour.

If you're like "oh I can't laugh at that, that's too far" you've only going to make the thread move the other direction to annoy the poo poo out of you and you'll deserve it.

Derek shouldn't have posted that stuff here and the idiot man in a wheelchair shouldn't have been twitter storming Derek months after being blocked and joking about SWAT'ing him. You don't need to pick the good side involved here, both sides being stupid is absolutely fine.

Wasn't the "kid" 19? I didn't go look at any information because that would be weird. 19 makes you an Adult by US law. We can slapfight over cognitive maxima being in the mid 20s or whatever, but come on. The guy actively threw thermite at a blazing fire and *gasp* guess what happened?

We're not justifying it, just pointing out that the whole idea of a successful SE getting this upset over a few comments is pretty funny, and that he kind of had it coming given the recent history with DSmart slandering and outcomes.

E: Apparently this image was posted on Star Citizen forums, so I am compelled to remove it just in case. I hope this child gets more care from their parents than they give to imaginary ships.

The government thinks that 19 years old is not old enough to make mature and responsible decisions. The internet proves this. TBH I think that around 26 is when people stop acting like kids, can form an argument, and have interesting topics of discussion.

So yeah, when you have only lived a quarter of your life, 19 years old is still a kid.

There's apparently now multiple subreddits dedicated to personally attacking and harassing Derek Smart because he dared to criticise a loving videogame. I had a little think about that, and found I couldn't really get too outraged about any of this.

He is not a child. He is 19, legally an adult. Given his handicap Derek gave him a chance by telling him to stop before he contacted his father, who he lives with.

Nope, 19 = adult in the US. It's one's personal responsibility to realize and own this. I know accountability is a triggering and awful word.

I for one exercise my knowledge of adulthood to make airplane noises with star wars space ships while on work calls with my mic muted. Also I don't initiate a slander campaign of a public figure on my twitter when I'm trying to build rapport to go to college. ~~

So this guy, for months on end, has been harassing Derek Smart and sees himself as being in a personal war of survival that has not only transcended internet spaceships, but now is now on a personal level. He knows that Derek Smart enjoys posting people's personal information online. He's using the same handle for the Derek Smart poo poo talk for his OK Cupid profile. He's 19.

Also, he said that he hopes that somebody SWAT's Derek Smart.

So yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that calling his parents and telling them that their kid needs a talk about doing insanely dumb poo poo under the guise of online anonymity is actually a good idea.
