    WOW, rarely do I mock people on internet forums, but for those who vote yes in this case I will make an exception.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Meh.... this is being blown out of proportion.

     

    I mean, yeah, it was completely out of line, and very tacky and distasteful and insulting and all sorts of other words can be used to describe.

    But seriously, it's not like there was some conspiracy between him and CCP to say those things at the exact moment and cause a big hoot and fuss.    This was a sh!tty person saying a sh!tty thing, and at most, he should be removed.  CCP is only responsible in a very indirect way, and shouldn't be forced to deal with some revolt.   

     

    ... unless they let Mittani continue his services unpunished of course.   That would be pretty lame.

    If the OP had said "Should Goonsquad be removed fromt the game and its members collectively shot into outer space on a shuttle with a defective oxygen supply?", I would have voted yes.

    I did some reading on the matter and seriously OP. You should wait till after the enternal investigation done by cccp is done before comming up with polls like this..

  • EliandalEliandal Chelmsford, ONPosts: 796Member

      While the person in question MAY be a criminal (in some countries, what was said could be considered harassement - not sure about Iceland) AND he's definately an idiot - what was said was done so in an unmoderated forum.  CCP has said they're investigating it - and I'll bet something like that won't happen again - but laying the entire blame on them is reactionary - and well...just...dumb!

    My first question would be who would have the deeper pockets CCP or Goon Squad. My next question would be is the FCC looking at this. Naww, no self-respecting Lawyer would want to go after CCP ? Or would they.

    Dude, 

    He was drunk and rambling. When he recovered from his hangover and got off the plane he read what he actually said and apologised profusely. Also, it was billed as an unregulated unmoderated forum so CCP shouldnt be held responsible.

    Moral of the story: Dont do press events when drunk

     

     

     

    Also, someone should check on that suicidal dude.

    Oh dear, some people are upset that a game isn't hello kitty online and the people who play it are not angels.

     

    I don't support the Mittani and I didn't vote for him, but he said something silly when drunk and I really really don't care.

     

    There are worse things said in game every day to people, in fact I've heard worse when I played wow alot.

     

    So get off your high horse and walk back to Hello kitty :)

    I would actually pay pretty good to been able to see his face when he saw what he said, and it sunk in that it went far far beyond the usual trolling that GS does... And even better i would like to see the messages from CCP to him.

  • SporinSporin FalkirkPosts: 18Member

    Punks like that should be banned, hell, criminally charged! No wonder the WoW kids think they can act like a******s online. I hope he gets whats coming to him *in game of course! ;)* :(

    Saying sorry doesnt make up for what he did, he commited a crime.

    Just a reminder that for discussion of the actual incident and response from The Mittani and that info, there's another thread for that. Keep this thread for poll discussion only. Thanks.

    Are you fucking stupid? No.

     

    Ill say this again, The mittani does not represent CCP or Eve online as a game, if you think this then you are a brainless prat, seriously, stop this shit people.

    They allready did, the dude is perfectly fine, he was even joking about it. Seriously, if the dude in question doesnt even care about it, then you people have only your own outrage to hang on to.

    Man, he used an official CCP platform to call for the in game harassment of someone with mental health issues with the express purpose of driving him to commit suicide, this was publically broadcast as part of the CCP coverage of their official event. I am not really sure how it can A. Be justifiable. B. not be against their catch all ToS or C. In CCP's interests (especially with their new partners such as Sony's publicly stated policies on cyber bullying) to keep this clusterfuck rolling down the hill gaining bad publicity.

    Alex Gianturco, the Mittani, needs to step up and step down fast.

    Agreed. There has to be consequences for this kind of behaviour as it is far beyond hardcore PvP behaviour. Cyber bullying is something real, one that has shown to lead to suicide in some cases. And knowingly doing it against someone who is allegedly suicidal already?

    There is no excuse really... at the very least the Goons, or whatever these idiots are called, need to stay away from this guy.

    I take it you've never visited the Something Awful.com forums to gain an understanding that he'll be considered a hero to the Goons, not a villian.

    And as far as EVE goes, likely he controls the real life  cash assets of the Goonswarm (which are very considerable), so will be hard to depose him.

    Strange, I had this bizarre idea that that was for judicial systems to determine, not ranters on internet forums.
