Our forums are not a public venue, they're privately owned and operated. There is no right to freedom of expression on them. The moderators and the owner of the forum are fully in their rights to do whatever they want to whoever they want whenever they want.

Again, if you didn't vote for The Mittani you deserve whatever is coming to you.

Regardless, you are just another player acting the part of a lunatic conspiracy nut for the purposes of your own entertainment and ours; for that I applaud you. You've even got the barely literate babble down perfectly. Might I recommend some use of colour and randomly changing font styles?

You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.

Of course not. His posts are the Eve-Online equivalent of Infowars.com.

First let me just say I dropped roles and am awaiting the 24h to quit corp.
Usually I don't post here but this has just been too much!
Change is needed within Goonswarm and the CSM now. It's pathetic.
Karttoon did a better job as CEO and even he got banned after Mittani leaning on CCP after making CSM.

Yes I know this sounds bitter but its the truth. Goonswarm internally is a mess right now.
Only by mittens stepping down will this situation improve.
Unless he resigns there's little hope for the CSM or for this game.

I mentioned offhand at the bookstore here at my University to another MerchI member that I was thinking of voting for Trebor, simply because he's given us RPG fans so much -- Wizardry, which inspired Dragon Quest... which then inspired Final Fantasy, which proves that there are unintended consequences to all good things; and AnimEIgo, which brought us Urusei Yatsura, one of the best anime in history.

Anyway, by the time I got home to my apartment, a process taking about 10 minutes, no more, no less, someone had put up a giant fatbee on my door, with the following scribed in a dark red fluid, possibly the blood of virgins, I cannot be sure:

"The Mittani Sends his Regards."

Upon tearing down the poster, I noticed underneath, in a slightly clear writing -- the tears of fat pubbies, no doubt -- an orate, Gothic script. "WE KNOW."

Upon falling backwards and voiding my bowls, I looked up and noticed no less than 3 people (and one squirrel in a ninja outfit, but I believe -- nay, pray -- that that was unrelated) staring at me as I went into my apartment, locked the door, double checked the deadbolt and barricaded the bathroom door, all without turning on any lights.

I then used my laptop to immediately vote for the CEO of Space, Mittani, and took out a second student loan to sign up 137 buddy accounts and pay for 1 month each so I could vote for him as many times as humanly possible.

Goons. VOTE MITTANI. Your life isn't worth a moment of insubordination.

Eve Radio needs to make a Coast to Coast AM show to host crazies like this and let them ramble their ideas out real-time - it'd be just about the best entertainment ever, like that Xenuria round-table but crazier and longer

I am the CEO of a so-called "pubbie" corporation in Goonswarm. While most in this game would probably call me a goonie, I'm not one of the goonies by their own definition as I nor any of my corp members have a Something Awful account.

On the goonfleet.net forum I and my corp membership are routinely harassed by The Mittani's underling goonies who call us all "bad poster" despite our best efforts to make long an informative posts that cover all the bases. About half my corp is read-only right now as a result of attempt to defend themselfs against being harassed.

It's not likely that my corp will remain in GSF for much longer after I make this post but I've been emboldened by the posts of other "pubbie" members of the alliance to bring certain fact to light.

Most non-goonie corps in the alliance are given space/outposts/tech moons based upon the participation of their membership and their size. My corp isn't really involved much in PvP operations and instead helps with logistics and production so we only hold a small number (3) of Tech moons and no space to really call our own despite the fact we produce the majority of the alliance's subcapital ships which we are forced to sell to goonies "at cost," leaving the tech as our sole source of income most of which goes into reimbursing my line member's ship losses fighting wars we don't usually support. Invading Branch was stupid and we've lost billions of isk keeping the alliance in ships and the following is the thanks we get for all our hard work.

A few weeks ago I and the other non-goonie corps got this evemail from The Mittani, I copied it from evegate so pardon the formating.

Quote:

CSM7 Election Is Upon Us

From: The Mittani
To: SirMille, (other non-goonie corp CEO names removed)

Greetings Pubbie CEOs,

We need more than just goons voting, therefore all pubbies in the alliance (and CFC Allaiances who will be getting a different evemail) are hereby REQUIRED to vote for me when the polls open. It would behoove you and your membership to post your support on the eve-o forums in my candidacy thread as well.

We will be auditing all pubbie corps after the election is over, anyone unable to provide proof that they voted for me via screenshots is to have their assets seized for the alliance and to be purged from your corp. If we find that the majority of your corp didn't vote for me, you can fully expect to lose any tech moons, systems, outposts, or even possibly getting your corp purged from the alliance without notice. Service Guarantees Citizenship.

Regards,
The Mittani


I cannot keep quiet any longer. I told my corp membership to wait before voting and because of our likely imminent purging I will be having them evac their assets immediately and telling them to vote for anyone they want except The Mittani. Personally I am going to vote for Issler as he seems to be the best bet for those of us who do industry.

Extortion works great for the CSM "elections" and should be practiced as much as possible. Perhaps intimidating the noobs in New Citizens Q&A could bring in some more votes too.

So in closing I must one again and still ask for the suspension of The Mittani's Candidicy for the CSM, until these claims can be properly investigated.

I ask for the suspension of Issler Dainze's candidacy for CSM due to statements that she made that may point towards direct involvement in RMT.

how do you feel about openly supporting a candidate who supports RMT?

or do you support RMT yourself
