You should never consider if and when you become worse than those you criticise. Because .... Why?


It might spoil the fun. Mittani got his justice. Now we're just trolling those goons because they and their leader have turned themselves into a giant whining laughingstock overnight.

It's not the first time. Big smile

It probably won't be the last time.

It's all part of the fun.

Some people want to carry the issue too far though, and really should back way from the adrenalin high. Exhibiting the same behavior you profess to abhor tends to turn popular opinion against you after a while. Blink

At least the Goons are honest about their agenda and mindset.

It's amazing how quickly the sheep acquire a taste for wolf.

Finding solace in another's misfortune, screw ups (even if many of his followers can't seem to comprehend the simplicity of why what he did was wrong) loses one the high ground awful quickly. This is how new internet space ship bullies are made, they see the first bully go down and then realize they like the feel of tear harvesting as well.

It's sad really. Can we let it go and get on with what sounds like an awesome Jita dance party? It's a dance party the goons are throwing right?

Yes, the theme is Disco Inferno.

Regardless of whether you're pro-Mittani or anti-Mittani, you have to give some credit to the idea that his Twitter postings are making him look a bit immature. Perhaps it is just me, but they come across as the temper tantrum of a small boy who's not used to being told "no".

I really wish for his sake that he'd take a little more time to breathe and a little less time screaming, because it's doing him no favours.

It bothers me that despite all his talk of "owning his mistake", he's very quick to blame other people for the consequences of it.

Not that I could honestly say I'd act any differently. I've always wanted to go to Iceland.


No, I wouldn't read them that way at all. I'd say they come across as quite mature and level headed for someone who is being harassed IRL by the media based on only the most twisted interpretation of the "facts". :)

Oh no. the mittani NEVER EVER harrassed ANYBODY. Roll Payback IS a BI-ATCH.

If he didn't behave like such the fool, we wouldn't even be HERE (for God's sake).

I find it quite humorous that people who say they hate Goons seem to have adopted the very habits, beliefs and phrases that Goons used. I guess that old saying that if you stare into the abyss long enough, it stares right back is true. The Goons didn't have to do anything at all - you've all willingly become just like them. All your excuses, all your justifications, are meaningless. Take a good long look in the mirror - you've become exactly what you despise.

Mittens never harassed because that is not how the goon mindset goes, he has however mocked people on countless occasions and so I present you with the following challenge: do you know the difference between mocking and harassing?

Something that I have been thinking about as of lately, why is it suddenly perfectly fine to bully Mittens and/or goons now that Mittens has been punished by CCP?

The stupid thing is goon has been for years ruining the game play of others, suddenly heres the the chance for the other to strike back and make the goons cry.


So, the thing that you don't seem to understand is that Goons aren't here to ruin the game. They're just here to ruin your game. Let me put it to you another way: they are here to ruin my GAME PLAY. That is my IN GAME game play. I want to make sure that you have the IN GAME part in your head quite firmly, because things are about to get interesting.

See, the problem that Alex "The Mittani" was complaining about is not in fact what YOU are doing. What he is complaining about is the false representation of what happened - in a very real sense when someone writes in a news article on an aggregated news site that he gave out someone's REAL LIFE NAME... that's actually not true - because he didn't. And please remember that these news services that are getting the facts totally wrong are not talking about "The Mittani". They are talking about the person BEHIND The Mittani. That is to say that they are talking about Alex.

And that's why what you are doing disgusts me. You aren't feeding on the tears of "The Mittani" and encouraging his in game harassment. You are encouraging his OUT OF GAME harassment and defamation. You've thoroughly stepped outside of the "Magic Circle" and have confused what is real with what is in game (and thus not real).

If you'd like more information about this, feel free to drop by my blog where I covered the social contracts of Eve Online in some detail: http://liangnuren.wordpress.com/2012/03/28/social-contracts/

or check out a GM's interpretation that is strikingly similar to mine:
https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=1034909#post1034909

Anyway - do try not to confuse in game suffering with out of game suffering.

What I find interesting is that in the articles the Mittani has linked too, most of them (barring Liang's and one more) seem to state as a fact that no-one was complaining until a couple of days afterwards.

Yet, I distinctly remember seeing threads crop up near the end of the live feed and certainly shortly after that were full of complaints, granted, most were just pointing out how poor the Alliance panel was (barring the WH guys), but a few people piped up there and then about Mittens saying what he said.

I wonder how many people are just reguritating other blogs or running off hearsay rather than actually reading these forums.

Oh, it was boiling on the Forums all weekend.

The gaming sites picked it up starting Monday once people were sobered-up enough to alert them properly.

Except, of course, that he is genuinely responsible for his actions. It's not like the news made it up, these articles are based on facts. I'm sure he can rage all he wants, but it's truly impotent because he hung his own noose.

Obvious reverse psychology is obvious, and childish, and too easy, and does not work.

Punished ? 30 Day Ban is slap on the wrist.

I don't like The Mittani. I don't like goons. Neither of these things should be relevant.

Owning up to his mistake and accepting the consequences has been admirable. It shouldn't be surprising that sensationalist media is sensationalist or that players are using this as an outlet for anti-goon rage but at least give the guy some respect for trying to do the right thing.

Funny. You sound more like a goon by the minute because that is how a goon reason.

It can also be said, the "pubbies" didn't ruin the game they just ruined Goons' game.
