The Mittani is a douche. You're not. Anyone with a sense of perspective know how much work you've done for EVE and its players (goons and pubbies alike).

Really hope you don't have to resign Sad

Alex- it's just a game. Spend more time with RL friends and family. All this metagamming stuff you do isn't worth the damage that it is taking on you privately, even if you wouldn't admit that publicly.

The recent events have shown that it's no longer a game for you. You've assumed and immersed yourself into the online persona that you have meticulously built up over all these years. And I think you should consider your priorities both in game and in life now.

Please consider stepping down. Not just for the game and the community but for your own welfare. For any human being to do what was done on Thursday really does show that it's no longer "just a game".

High Five. Yeah! C'est La Eve .

Literally the only reason this was blown out of proportion is because he's CEO of Goonswarm.

That's it.

So, Mittens, did CCP directly say "apologize or lose your position" or did you figure that out all by yourself?

After all, the long delay between action and apology makes only the truly, truly stupid actually believe that you are sorry.

Meaningless and empty.

Let us know when you really take responsibility for your actions and resign.

So, by your own definition, what Mittens did was just words. **** you are dumb.

Don't resign over this. What you said was foolish and you have admitted as much, you are too valuable a member of the CSM to
lose. Over 10,000 players want you where you are. I'm one of them and I forgive you, I'm pretty sure others will do too.

Way to step up and be a man. Saying your sorry when you do something wrong is what being a man is about.

Now if your sheep would get a clue.

So Ladie Harlot, even Mittani knows he was wrong, how stupid do you look for saying he did nothing wrong over and over today. how priceless that your dear leader threw you under the bus.

I have to question the sincerity of this apology after reading your earlier posts about the incident. ~100058~. You said on twiter you were resigning, was that a troll? I highly doubt you would care one iota if not for the public outcry. You have brought shame and dishonor to CCP, CSm abd the entire Eve community. Do the right thing and step down from CSM.

You are the most hypocritcal person on the CSM. Bravo. Go break the NDA over this.

Anyway, so far my prediction is true... apology, but not stepping down. Well - done.

Good appology. That took quite a bit of balls to make and admit when you make mistakes even more not to blame it on intoxication.

Don't resign, people do stupid **** all the time and your comments weren't such that a resignation is an appropriate response in this instance. You ate your crow and apologised, the dude involved is good with that and that should be the end of it.

However, I don't think that this should be the end of the conversation regarding how we act towards people outside of EVE. It seems that quite a few people really don't agree with your assessment of your comments and can't seem to recognize the distinction between in-game and out of it.

I don't drink a lot myself and these are precisely the reasons why I don't.

I would think that being someone as large of an influence within the game, you would have behaved more maturely. Heading to CCP's event and representing not only yourself but your corp/alliance mates and the game community as a whole with your CSM position you have really let a lot of people down. I don't know if your corp mates agree or disagree with what you did (reading some posts quite a few support it regardless of your apology) but for me at least I feel a line has been crossed.

Whilst it is good of you to apologise, I feel the damage has already been done. CCP has a major game coming out soon and your actions have no doubt pissed them off something rotten. Now they have to deal with the media, possible police inquiry's and other legal bits of business because of your actions.

Don't get me wrong, I don't view you as a monster and I understand what can happen when you have had a lot to drink but I feel that you just let a lot of people down. I don't want to see you banned, I want to see you put it right and this is a step in the right direction. So I wish you the best of luck in the upcoming months because you will no doubt have to deal with a lot of regret.

Anyone can feel on top on the world while drunk, but it takes real balls to own up to it and write an apology like that. That is a commendable act

Eve is place with rough humour, rough loving and a lot of rivalries. That is how it should be. But contrary to marketing messages, Eve is not real. Eve is divided from reality by a blurry line, sometimes maybe too blurry. Internet spaceships are not real but words are, and those words can be taken too far

I hope people will use this event to consider where the blurry line goes. Because this event is merely a symptom of a culture within Eve.

Let us know when two and three are done.

One is done, both here and to the miner. Three is done. Two takes a post, and I should probably discuss it with the CSM before I mash butan.

I think Two Step would make a fine Chairman, though.

*snip*, you could realize that he blacked out later in the night and didn't remember the event until he saw the video.

I know, I know, it's far more fun to picture Mittani as this nefarious cartoon villain, twirling a handlebar mustache, but it turns out that Alex is just a guy -- a really awesome, very classy, highly intelligent guy, but just a guy.
