Out of respect, please refrain from trolling or posting vitriolic comments. I will only be warning people once.

I never knew him personally, all I ever knew him was by the stories I heard and the people that he led.

He will be missed.

Rest in Peace, Vile Rat, I wish that I had the chance to met you on the grid of battle at least once.

RIP Vile Rat, and thank you for your service for our country.

Your family is in my prayers.

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

Every last member of GSF and all friends of VR have my condolences tonight, my thoughts are with you all. This is some pretty ****ed up ****.

I've had the honor of getting to know Sean via the CSM alumni channel, and had several private exchanges with him as well during my term. I regret not being able to get to know him better in the time we had. I could tell one thing though - the man was passionate about the game, and passionate about his community, and had he run in CSM8 as the CFC representative he would have made a strong chairman.

Rest in peace, Sean. EVE will miss you. You served both your community and your country with excellence.

This is truly a sad day. My heart goes out to his family. Life is too short to have it ended like this.

I do not like the men on this spaceship. They are uncouth and fail to appreciate my better qualities. I have something of value to contribute to this mission if only they would realize it. - Bill Frug

I am a rugby player... an odd breed of man that would happily punch an opponent one second, and laugh about the whole thing over pints and strippers later on.

Over my many years in EVE, I have learned to truly dislike Goons. I have left alliances and corps because they were going into alliances with Goons, and happily shot any Goon on site. The only good Goon is a podded Goon. (would you like to know more...?)

But this is a game.... and while I don't like the way the Goons choose to play it, I would happily buy a Goonie a pint and sit down to discuss and obsess over the game we both love.

RIP Vile Rat..... the game just won't be the same.

RIP Vile Rat, thanks for being open to my points of view in the corps diplomatique channels. Thanks for taking a 7month old player and letting me be a diplomat. You will be missed.

Do you like winning t2 frigs and dictors for Dirt Cheap?
