If Mittens wanted back on the CSM he'd just sign up as a candidate in 2014, as he's not barred from doing so. And yes, he'd win.

People who don't actually play eve outside of running a lottery website aren't expected to get that, sadly.

Noticed it in the SOMER Lotteries channel. 99.99% sure that guy's an alt of the #2 man for Blink.

I do suspect, though, that that quote is entirely out of context and that they weren't discussing the referral bonus, because I don't recall the CSM being terribly involved in this beyond mere acknowledgement.

I was not necessarily talking to you, as I am sure there are a lot of affiliates who will receive a copy of that letter.

I would actually be shocked if it was not on TMC or EvE News 24 in the next 24 hours.

It's highly disturbing that you cats leap to point out how absurd it is that your owner wouldn't be able to be elected to the CSM....but while you're actively tonguebathing his ballsack for the public, you have no issue with the assertions that he's so wrapped up in a video game he actively encouraged a human being's death for personal amusement.

That would of course be excluding Malcanis's wonderful input into this and Jesters its all our fault blog.

God things I say

That is rather old news, it was an incident that was deliberately blown out of proportion to remove Mittens from the CSM.

It was a joke, which is why CCP let it go through.

I have provided you context in evemail. Spoiler: The referral bonus was indeed being discussed.

I wonder if SOMERblink actually paid taxes for his profits. I would love to know his real identity to send the tax authorities of his country a nice mail.


The US-based ETC vendors with affiliate programs have you fill out W-9 forms if you are in the US and making more than a certain amount in a year through their program. So yes, he has to pay taxes.


His profits would be reported.

Marcus Eikenberry sure isn't going to pay taxes on money he pays to Somerset Mahm. No matter what you may think of him - he is not stupid.


He doesn't, Somer does. For all the shady crap he's been involved in in the past I don't think "tax evasion risking levies and jail time" is among them. What he did in the past isn't a violation of US laws, but not reporting your profits to the IRS is.

Maybe he is not a US citizen. Depending on where he lives it might be reailistically possible for him to evade taxes.

Yo, if you wanna discuss all of the shortcomings of Mittens and his followers, make another thread to do so please.

now they need to ban Somer for massive RMT and everything will be fine

to not do so would be extremely hypocritical


Somer is stupidly popular with the devs. I forget the podcast CCP Rise stated that the devs play it all the time with their non CCP toons. He even went so far to say that the devs were buying GTC's to support their own Somer gambling habits. I'll look it up and link it here.

EDIT:
It was on "The Daily Roam" Episode 6 CCP Rise said it. LINK He says it within the first few min of the cast starting. No hate to the daily roam here or for CCP Rise. These were simply facts stated.
