Pretty big to have this as a major, front page article, and in a very well known paper, especially a paper from a country that Vile Rat wasn't even from.

RIP.

I did not know him, but I would feel stupid taking the time to comment on the trivialities of the game today without giving my condolences here first.

RIP Vile Rat

I only hope this thread gives a small amount of comfort to your family and friends.

Never got to know you in the game; but you shared my passion for Eve Online.

You helped lead the alliance we all love to hate.

You will be missed as a Gamer and as a Man.

Your death has brought the reality of the struggle and pain that exists in the world today; a struggle which feels all too alien for the vast majority of westerners, into something we can all feel and relate too. Made it kind of tangible. (not sure how to explain what i mean; i hope you understand)

R.I.P Vile, It bothers to lose any Eve brother. It's get me furious to learn how and why he died, a man with a family and kids who had nothing to do with that damn film. A STUPID ******* FILM. We all have seen films disrespecting many ideals in all religions, but that does not jusitfy murder, vandalism, and chaos. I hope one day we as "Humans" can grow the **** up.

Your name will truly be remembered by all in and out of game. We "Eve Gamers" will make sure your name is not forgotten ANYWHERE.

It's an Associated Press story, most major news outlets just "C&P" them to their sites. The MSNBC thing was pretty good though.

Foreign Service Information Management Officer was the field group I received a C.O.E. for in 2003. Dropped medically , but one wonders.

I hope now that Goons understand what real "jihad" crap is all about and how unfunny it is and that it has no place in game.

That said, if there is anyone out there that want's to go hunting IRL and is paying a wage to do it, next stop Tripoli, then Benghazi.
