Actually, genius, what he DID was use words.

If you run into more than 2 a**holes in a day, you should probably look in the mirror.

neither you nor the raiden/ncdot badposters in this thread care about the dude in question, the incident or anything, it's just a nice opportunity to make veiled complaints about the titan nerf

also you should have watched the fanfest presentation he showed everyone your tears

shame that he didn't name you

Probably closer to 4,000 or less subscribers.

Wait what? So his words wernt facts, but what he said was words, therefore also not facts, his apology was words, not facts so his original words were in fact not fact? So none of this actually happened?

Trust me, I almost know what I'm doing.

Still waiting on an explanation here.


You do realize he's just resigning the chair right?

And that he can only do so on the suffrage of the other CSM members?

Interesting how now it's just "resigning the chair", and not his CSM position.

I guess since he wasn't explicit earlier this isn't technically revisionism, but I think to pretty much everyone it was implied that he was going to be resigning his CSM position.

We've been lawyer'd, it seems. Interesting.


No, like so much of what you and you ilk have been braying for this whole thread long (over what is essentially a non-issue blown out of proportion by gaming bloggers, certainly not a new concept if you are at all familiar with the way that gaming blogs work) you have created a vision of what YOU want to happen and then get disappointed when your vision doesn't come about. Yes, you still get to deal with the legally elected CSM Mittani and all of those terrible things that are going to make the game better for the rest of us that he is pushing. Face it, you and the rest of your hillariously misguided false rage club are upset that a second attempt at getting Mittens off the CSM roster is falling through. The election didn't work out for you, and here overblowing a non-event overblown already in some rather poor quality blogs (never was a fan of Massively or their like in the first place and their spotty coverage of this issue doesn't help improve their image with me either) in a ploy to push for resignation isn't going to work either. What's the next plan? Chase him with a team of photographers to catch him playing other games than EVE?

Interesting how the only mention of Titan nerfs in any of these MittaniGate threads are in accusations such as this.

It wasn't somebody trying to be edgy or even king of space'y, or was somebody trying to be funny and not realizing that what is funny to some could be really insulting to others. The whole alliance presentation was a disaster before it even began because it consisted of unfunny chatlogs being read aloud which wasn't terribly helpful, but you should have seen the thread he posted looking for ideas on our forum which wasn't a whole lot of help either. So he collected what we found funny as a subgroup of eve, tears in chatlogs, and read them to show what kinds of letters he gets in response to our in game activities by people who take the game way too seriously.

The guy who got super mad that we blew up his spaceship did in fact send him a letter full of drama saying he was going to do this or that and frankly Mittens should have forwarded it to CCP and authorities so the guy could have had his account banned and received the proper help if he really needed it. It was a poor choice of logs to read aloud during this event for many reasons, but for many of us the biggest reason is reading chatlogs isn't funny. It's not entertaining. Who the hell wants to hear some dude read a bunch of logs?

I think he should be banned from giving Alliance presentations for those reasons but he's done a fantastic job as a CSM and that should be the end of it.


Its great that he does a good job in CSM and has a good reputation among friends.
But its enough to do one small (or big) bad thing to kill all that reputation and smear his name forever.

For the rest of it, poor choice of letters or chat logs, he should have been more careful, and saying that just for getting some laughts,that is just as sad.
As a CSM chairman and someone who consider himself as a leader and decision maker in the game, he should have known better. Drunk and joking are bad excuses for that.

I don't think you can vote if you are not currently subscribed.

I don't think you understand my point.

Individuals can cast more than one vote, you know. Seeing as they can hold more than one account.

I agree, that's why he gave the dude over 10b isk (all the isk in his - the mittani's wallet).

There's not much more he can do to show that he is genuinely apologetic for offending anyone.

Yes, but these words fuel our agenda.. those words don't fit into the agenda so they are meaningless.

Seriously man, changing it up a little bit doesn't make it any better. I'd quit trying.

Edit: Oh... NM. I'm confused. Feel like I just got hit with a stupid stick. My bad.

In his hour of need, what would really help mittens would be if his idiot goon supporters laid off the spiteful posts.

Great, so we've reached the point that everyone else seems to be missing. Mittens is guilty of trying to make a funny off-hand comment and failing to be funny. Clearly unfunny people are not to be allowed onto our super serious space government panel.
