Something rather interesting just turned up on The Escapist. Didn't see any locked threads or opens about it.

It's already being ridiculed (well Hilmar is a little bit) in the sticky thread about the 49 layoffs.

The Guardian article covered it, so it came up in that thread.

So IB4L (because, well saying bad stuff about CCP employees, even the CEO, is bad).

If it's true that it was written by the fiction writers, it's funny as hell, but also disgustingly disrespectful to the player base at the time.

It was mentioned in the Guardian article too. I'm not sure whether to care. If he'd come out like the other Devs at the time and made a poor statement, the mob would have torn him to pieces. Even if he didn't write it himself, it did the job, and he put his name to it. It's no more than politicians do every day.

Not entirely true, outside Washington DC.

And, personal thoughts...

Well, rather not get another ban. I do think that the much touted 'incarna apology' being a fraud does make it somewhat humorous. I wonder if he ever even read it or just had the PR guys put his name on it?

30. Abuse of CCP employees and ISD volunteers is prohibited.

CCP operate a zero tolerance policy on abuse of CCP employees and ISD volunteers. This includes but is not limited to personal attacks, trolling, “outing” of CCP employee or ISD volunteer player identities, and the use of any former player identities when referring to the aforementioned parties.

31. Rumor mongering is prohibited.

Rumor threads and posts which are based off no actual solid information and are designed to either troll or annoy other users will be locked and removed. These kinds of threads and posts are detrimental to the wellbeing and spirit of the EVE Online Community, and can create undue panic among forum users, as well as adding to the workload of our moderators.


From the article itself:
Quote:
If you're interested in what CEO Pétursson said - or perhaps didn't say


Speculation, torches and pitchforks based on conjecture is by definition rumor. Additionally, attacks against CCP employees are not allowed.

Thread locked.
