Why did I even watch this?

This is gonna haunt me forever. Ugh

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

I watched it, and was reminded of this, just not anywhere near as amusing.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Okay, firstly I'd like to list the forum rules that this thread has broken:

2. Be respectful toward others at all times.

The purpose of the EVE Online forums is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas, and a venue for the discussion of EVE Online. Occasionally there will be conflicts that arise when people voice opinions. Forum users are expected to be courteous when disagreeing with others.

Using the insults you did (at timestamp 4:14) in the video that you posted shows a blatant disrespect for other involved parties.

3. Ranting is prohibited.

A rant is a post that is often filled with angry and counterproductive comments. A free exchange of ideas is essential to building a strong sense of community and is helpful in development of the game and community. Rants are disruptive, and incite flaming and trolling. Please post your thoughts in a concise and clear manner while avoiding going off on rambling tangents.

This thread was created as a rant given your denial of application to the CSM. Rants are not permitted on the EVE Online forums, as stated above.

4. Personal attacks are prohibited.

Commonly known as flaming, personal attacks are posts that are designed to personally berate or insult another forum user. Posts of this nature are not beneficial to the community spirit that CCP promote and as such they will not be tolerated.

Personal attacks were made against a number of parties in the linked video, as well as allegations of foul play.

5. Trolling is prohibited.

Trolling is a defined as a post that is deliberately designed for the purpose of angering and insulting other players in an attempt to incite retaliation or an emotional response. Posts of this nature are disruptive, often abusive and do not contribute to the sense of community that CCP promote.

This video was intended to incite response by negative portrayal of the decision to deny your application to the CSM.

7. Use of profanity is prohibited.

The use of profanity is prohibited on the EVE Online forums. This includes the partial masking of letters using numbers or alternate symbols, and any attempts at bypassing the profanity filter.

EVE Online is Teen rated by the ESRB. While the disclaimer included states "Online Interactions not rated by the ESRB", this is due to the fact that what is said in chat channels in game cannot be actively moderated. However, our forums can, and we aim to keep them in line with the ESRB rating that EVE Online has. The language in this video was certainly not teen rated in places.

9. Posting of private CCP communication is prohibited.

The posting of private communication between the Game Masters, EVE Team members, Moderators, Administrators of the forums and forum users is prohibited. CCP respect the right of our players to privacy and as such you are not permitted to publicize private correspondence (including petition responses and emails) received from any of the aforementioned parties.

Whether it be regarding ship reimbursements, technical issues, harassment or any other contact with customer support, communication should not be shared with third parties. We respect your right to privacy, and prefer to conduct and resolve any issues that arrive via email.

22. Post constructively.

Negative feedback can be very useful to further improve EVE Online provided that it is presented in a civil and factual manner. All users are encouraged to honestly express their feelings regarding EVE Online and how it can be improved. Posts that are non-constructive, insulting or in breach of the rules will be deleted regardless of how valid the ideas behind them may be. Users are also reminded that posting with a lack of content also constitutes non-constructive posting.

This does not need a great deal of explaining. It's quite clear that this is an nonconstructive post designed to incite response.

30. Abuse of CCP employees and ISD volunteers is prohibited.

CCP operate a zero tolerance policy on abuse of CCP employees and ISD volunteers. This includes but is not limited to personal attacks, trolling, “outing” of CCP employee or ISD volunteer player identities, and the use of any former player identities when referring to the aforementioned parties.

Our forums are designed to be a place where players and developers can exchange ideas in a polite and friendly manner for the betterment of EVE Online. Players who attack or abuse employees of CCP, or ISD volunteers, will be permanently banned from the EVE Online forums across all their accounts with no recourse, and may also be subject to action against their game accounts.

Again, the insult used toward a CCP employee at timestamp 4:14 in the video that you made was a direct personal attack against an employee of CCP. We have a zero tolerance policy on this.

31. Rumor mongering is prohibited.

Rumor threads and posts which are based off no actual solid information and are designed to either troll or annoy other users will be locked and removed. These kinds of threads and posts are detrimental to the wellbeing and spirit of the EVE Online Community, and can create undue panic among forum users, as well as adding to the workload of our moderators.

This thread and the video that it included, while made to bring to light CCP's decision regarding your eligibility to serve on the CSM, was constructed in a way that served to rumor monger and twist the perception of our intent.

Given the points above, this thread will stay locked. Any re occurrence of it will be dealt with to the full extent of our rules.
