Ok you guys know the drill (else check your operations manual). We have to save the gifs before reddit gets to them, and we're in a hurry!!!

Let's just get a few things straight ;-) (you'll get the pun in a moment)


First, I don't care what someone's gender identity or sexual orientation is. I really don't give a flying gently caress. What I give a flying gently caress about is being deceptive in order to gain notoriety or gain material possessions. If I was homosexual (and for the record I am not) and I was dating someone and I had bought him an iPad so we could keep in contact and then suddenly I found out that he wasn't really gay he was just dating me because I have money and I give gifts to my lovers I'd be pretty pissed.


This person in question asked for financial help to get equipment to do videos for the Star Citizen fan community. They sent a drat expensive camera and some other equipment at the person's request. Admittedly the percentage of single, desperate men is probably higher in the SC community than the average population, but that is no reason to take advantage of them. I can put on a dress too if lonely old men are giving out money, but I won't because I like to think I have integrity. EDIT -- I also think dresses are probably drafty and not comfortable for me since I get cold easily. -- End Edit




Also, I expected to be Goonrathi Fleet Commander and have a Javelin gifted to me by now. You folks are slacking.

Not quite hypocrite. I was simply making a joke which was not received well and then when I was in the middle of explaining with a preparation to apologize I was being talked over. When I realized I was dealing with child like maturity. I excused myself since it was time for me to go work out.

Just because Dick Wulf harassed you and your friend doesn't give you permission to be an rear end in a top hat. It's sad that it happened but it's not a license to be a shithead.


As for me not having tact and being an educator? I at least let people finish their sentences before talking over them with bullshit. This is SA not the loving Region ESC where I am dealing with professionals or my students.


I am a dork? Absolutely. I don't really have fucks to give about it. I don't spend my freetime at conventions for games that don't exist and I sure as hell don't spend 1000s of dollars on JPEGS. If you go back and check I've absolutely admitted to spending 182 which I don't need a refund for because I basically expected that money to be flushed down the toilet I made a bet and lost.. At this point I am here for the tears of redditors, dick wulf, and the brown sea at the expense of Derek Smart's retainer lawyers. So far money well spent CARRY ON GOONS


Beer and Eowne still the best two goons.

I bet your PDAS appraisals are poo poo. Mine are stellar. I love my job, I love my district, and I am revered in my school by students and staff alike. I give a poo poo about kids and their future. I'm sorry you have a stick up your rear end. I hope you get that treated.

you're arrogant and you refuse to learn from your mistakes; forget about teaching, that makes you a lovely student. everything you've posted has served only to build up the image of that petulant teenager who's been told all their life that they're amazing and their work is fantastic, only to fall to pieces as soon as you receive any pushback whatsoever. anyone who unironically uses the word "revered" to describe their relationship to students and staff is beyond deluded and actively dangerous to education. basically i'm really only putting this much effort into writing this much because unlike you i actually take the craft seriously; you're a piece of poo poo of the highest caliber. also you'd lose that bet unless you somehow think nothing below proficient or exceeds in all domains is poo poo.

The article lays out the facts as known thus far very cleanly, without coming down hard on one side or another.

Guys, please stop. if you keep encouraging refunds and questioning CIG, they won't have funds to make the game. Things would have been perfectly fine if you all had just stayed quiet, but now with bad publicity and less funds things are going to be even more delayed and they have to resort to more creative ways to get funding. This could have been successful! Everyone's free to spend their money how they want so just enjoy the dream that costs you nothing. you stirred up the crazies, that exist in every community, which have spoiled it for the silent majority. If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all.

I'm sorry that reality doesn't fall neatly into the personal narrative you've constructed where all people who choose to spend money on a game of their choosing suffer from some mental disorder that you get to play the hero and save them from. The reality is that people see something in the game that excites them, and they are willing to spend money because of that.

That actually looks alright, what the gently caress are you on about?

I hate the concept of JPEG oil salesmen as much as anyone, but there are some legitimately good artists and designers getting whipped by Sandi at CIG.

Everything other than the Ender's Game arena is dull as gently caress. The art is technically proficient, but grimy industrial hallways are a dime a dozen and you have to work real hard to make that kind of environment stand out (see Alien Isolation for a good example on how to make it work).

EDIT: also apparently it's impossible to properly light an industrial facility in the far-flung space future. hope you like tripping over poo poo in your barely powered space station!
