Glad to see you running again, Mike.

One of the few that I see getting involved on a daily basis with the player base. Not like most that you never hear from between election campaigns.

Because you found it necessary to put a knife in my back on another podcast, I will no longer vote for you.

I have supported your campaign on CSM9 and for CSM10 I got you on the show again, and yet you found it necessary to disrespect me, something I never expected from you.

Dude (Tyrant Scorn), you're such a douche, he was praising me for being a man about a situation that puts your podcast on the list that I run for the community. I did it because my site is for the community as a whole, so I disregarded your arrogance and egocentric attitude and put your podcast on my list. Even though personally, I don't like you. So if you're not going to vote for him because he praised me, well you're seriously (in the words of the Legend Ernie Harwell) LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONGGGGGGGGGGG GONE!

I can easily remove unnamed podcast from the list. If you so wish. I have no problem with that. Just send me an email on my site listed in my signature.

Firstly, he never named you. Pukin and Harry did.

Second, Mike was giving ChYph3r credit for doing right by the community and giving you media links on his site despite past personal feelings.

Personally, I doubt anyone cares about your "endorsement" any less than my own. But seeing as how your defensive victim complex has reared it's ugly head yet again, you're giving credence to why ChYph3r is, in fact, the bigger man here.

Easier to throw a tantrum than take a minute to comprehend, eh?

ArrowPRO TIP (for newbros)
Idea To be good at EVE you have to vote for Mike Azariah for CSM, because if you do, his awesomeness will just magically enhance your gameplay. NO JOKING!!! His awesomeness is retroactive as well.


ArrowPRO TIP (for veteran players)
Idea Voting for Mike Azariah will NOT make you win at EVE, because voting for him actually has the reverse effect.
Attention Winning at EVE = not playing the game... duh


ArrowPROT TIP (for bitter old vets)
Idea HTFU and just vote for Mike Azariah. Your going to do it anyways... you bitter old forkBlink Harri and Chyph3r are going to do it and so should you.


ArrowPRO TIP (for all pilots)
Idea Mike Azariah IS NOT in the CFC, nor has been been assimilated or emasculated by the CFC as some may have accused him of.
Idea His "Magic School Bus" program is legit and is not a scam even though he has a huge bounty placed on him as a gimmick by many of us in the EVE Media.
Idea Just recently, Mike Azariah has been wrongly accused of betrayal by a non factor in the EVE Media who is the host of "Legacy Of An A**hole Podcast". That person owes Mike Azariah a formal apology for being incompetent on his fact checking and for letting his personal bias toward another podcast taint his comments towards Mike Azariah.


Cool Lastly, if I wasn't married and I was batting for the home team... I would certainly do Mike Azariah!! However, I am just going to have to settle with voting for him with all my accounts... even the extra accounts that I just renewed in order to vote the CFC block list because my "Dear Leader" has ordered me so.

Mike, I tried talking to you in private about the issues between Tyrant and Cypher.

Honestly I tried burying this when I came on board, but it keeps coming up.

I even publicly thanked Cypher for adding LegacyofaCapsuleer.com to his podcast website, even after he called me names for having a different opinion then him.

- Cypher called anyone who is against the isboxer changes "c*nts and bitches"

- Someone on Podside threatened harm to Tyrants family over some stupid eve argument

- On Podside, on a live feed, CCP Seagull was called names I'd rather not repeat.

- Cypher proceeded on 280 to say that Tyrant is a Hitler supporter... Really?

- There was about 6 requests that came in before our interview with CCP Manifest asking us to push him to condemn or flat out ban Cypher and anyone else involved for the comment about CCP Seagull. There is a growing call to have CCP police podcasts and blogs because of these statements on Podside. None of us want that.

You said "With them I only stayed for a little while, I've never done that with anyone else."

You commend Cypher for adding LegacyofaCapsuleer.com to his podcast website but don't even attempt to call out all of these other issues, then take a swipe at us?

We brought you on because we liked you as a candidate and a person. However now we feel a bit slighted for reasons I can't really discern.

Edit oh and I forgot I happily donated a billion this to your Magic School Bus program months ago, you would think that would buy a bit of goodwill?

I am sorry you guys feel slighted.

I have been listening in and even taking part in the twitch portion of your casts for the last two (Funky and Manifest) as well as the time I was on.

RL precludes me from being able to stay full time for most casts but I do my best with the ones I do show up on.

I feel like a kid caught in the middle of a parents divorce. I don't want to take side and I am willing to work with you both. But each time 'mom and dad' get together things blow up (and not in a good way)

Each podcast is different. Your LoaC has been doing great one guest formats. Podside is a different beast, it is the equivalent of going out with a bunch of Eve folks, getting drunk, and talking about whatever crosses their minds. There are hours that have no Eve in it, others that are finer focus. Just like going to a sports bar for beers. Sometimes you watch the game, other times the waitresses.

I said it before and I'll say it again. I mean no harm, no disrespect. Trust me, if I do want to disrespect you I will make it very clear.

I'm more than willing to take a side here. I'd say in this heated exchange, Mike is clearly the better man.

You guys should take a moment to cool off before posting, and also try communicating with a person about disputes or tension and see if they're willing to work it out before you openly accuse them of anything. Two times out of three, you'll discover it was a misunderstanding and they meant no harm. One time out of three they go out of their way to make reparations. I'd wager Mike would be in that last one out of three, time permitting, and if you had a good case for damages.

I tried replying from my mobile, but it apparently didnt send.

Mike - no problem, I understand trying to stay out of this fight back and forth (as I have tried doing as well, but I have a vested interest with Tyrant and also he doesnt seem to be the aggressor in this fight from trying to be objective....)

Staying neutral is a tough thing, we just felt a bit slighted by your comment after we supported your candidacy.

Podside has a few people who seem extremely hostile to other media and even to CCP employees (the statements on a live podcast about CCP Seagull are completely unforgivable).

Your a great CSM candidate and you still have our 100% support, sorry this dragged out longer then it should. Please do come onto our show whenever you want, either on Twitch or even on the live audio. Your always welcome.

Any CSM or candidate that refuses to swear an oath to the EvE constitution, that they will never support any change that reduces player conflict, and will only embrace changes that increase player conflict, should be summarily removed from consideration. Mike does not subscribe to this pledge.

Man, you lost it hard!
In short:
- EvE is a game
- CCP is the company with earning money in mind.
- being a company you need to be professional and people you work with need to be professional too.
- signing a NDA is a RL pleadge to a company, that comes far before every in game problem, personal oppinion or ingame pledge.

the current csm has achieved nothing other than further entrenching broken and unbalanced gameplay thanks to it being an echo chamber of uninformed opinions, so why should anyone vote you in again?


man...
CSM are for input of oppinions and ideas to reflect the playerbase bevor changes might be done. They can decide nothing and the influence is limited. Worse: sometimes they are surpised by the facts CCP created but are powerless to change something AND are bound by the NDA.

I am trying to think of a good one for Podside. It's difficult to decide on the video but I do have an idea of what I want to do and I am working on gathering video and finding good audio from the podcast.

Yes yes yes...Mike is a 'nice guy' who 'works hard'...

But wasn't Dexter also, working hard at slitting throats on HBO each week, while wearing a warm brother/father facade? Hardly a Dexter, but in Mike's case it's nodding with trained-seal approval as CCP slits their own throats.

Also, this is pretty damning commentary from another CSM who also sat behind the curtains.

My point is this, CSM membership shouldn't be a popularity or work-ethic contest (for Dexter shure worked hard at putting a lot of bodies in the ocean...). It should be about people who will simply fight to the death to defend the damned sandbox. We don't need a fence-sitting trained seal or carebear supporting nerfs. We need someone who will defend the sandbox.

EvE is not WoW for a reason, but Mike would take us there, while pretending he isn't helping CCP do just that.

+1 vote for Dexter Mike

Anyone who slaughters bad guys- -hunts evil promotes fun is good in my book.

Mike isn't trying to turn EVE into a theme park. He likes the sand box just as much as you and I do.

For those of you unwilling to click the link I brought it over, with a reason.

Mike Azariah

While I like Mike personally, I remain unconvinced of the value of serial podcast appearances or EVE-O posting marathons. He tends to fence-sit frequently, and it can be frustrating to determine what he genuinely thinks about a given issue. He has been consistently active and engaged. I'm convinced he's an anarchist. Sion's review of incumbents


The reason is I agree with almost all of it, I just see it in a different light.

He remains unconvinced of talking to the electorate, to going and and connecting with the players. To being on THESE forums. I am convinced that is what you are electing me to do. Communicate. If you think CSM/CCP knows best and they do not need you bumping his elbow then vote for people who only talk during the campaigns.

Fence sit? I always try to see both sides of an argument and usually both sides have some good points. I do not like things in Black or White, For us or Against us, Part of the Problem or part of the Solution. The world does not work that way. It is of compromise, agreement, consensus. So I engage, ask and look for the gems on each side of an argument. But that does not mean I waffle, notice he did NOT accuse me of that. I do make a stand but usually it is somewhere closer to the centre than some others do. Since he is more to extremes he finds me tough to read.

Active and engaged. . . . wow that is really damning, I have nothing to say to defend myself against that.

Anarchist- yup. I make my own rules and have an ingrained aversion to playing my game FOR someone else. That is why I do not do well in Null. Casual players cannot play alarm clock games, cannot make their monthly quotas of fleets and required activities. In Sions eyes a lot of players are probably slightly anarchistic. I represent THEM.

I read Sions article and laughed. What he saw as negatives are my best features. I like Sion as well, I get along with most folks. Comes from that centering tendencies of mine. I am what I am.
