Hi.
I'm Bluestreak.

I'm an rear end in a top hat from Boston with a low tolerance for tomfoolery and shenanigans.
I run an internet radio station (https://www.beyondthehorizonradio.com) that once was built for Star Citizen players, but then smartened right the gently caress up and diversified while leaving that shitfest behind.

Tomorrow's show will be our final, final goodbye to Star Citizen. Your friend and mine, Beer4TheBeerGod will be calling in so we can review everything that we knew was going on, and laugh over the atrocities in the Escapist comments.

Whilst we do not dismiss any refund requests out of hand, yours is certainly unusual. I can see that you have been with us for quite a long while now.
