Thank you for standing up and admitting a mistake. That takes backbone to do so before so many people.

We are all capable of making horrific mistakes, but not everyone can admit to their mistakes.

Case closed for me...

I still wonder why some people are unable to draw a distinction between Eve and Real Life. If you look at the whole hour of Alliance Panel, it's all drunken nerds trying (not very successfully and with bad taste) to be funny.

Nice damage control but your true character has been shown and you cannot hide any longer.

Welcome to EVE!

Mittens, stop beating yourself up about it. The truth of the matter is it was not him who made the comments, but me masquerading as him.

I realized early on at Fanfest that I was his doppleganger. Literally had Goons buying me drinks thinking I was Mittens. So when I saw an opportunity, I took it and took his place on stage to troll. I had no idea it would generate so much attention and bad press for CCP and Mittens and fully accept responsibility for what happened.

This must be the reason! Good guy Mittens taking the responsibility for his twin!

Not sure if meta troll or..?

Hopefully now other gaming sites will stop fueling this and discontinue shitting on EVE.

That was more than I expected. I, like a nubbin, expected a legalese apology. This was not that. It seemed honest, did not shift blame or try to smooth over the action in question. That took some big balls and a large dose of humility.

Not good enough sry don't cut it in cases like this. i know you cant rly do more then that but that's just tough luck for you.

i don't care if you are in CSM or not, i don't care if you get banned or not. You gotta live whit it and feel bad about, though i have a feeling you wont.

i guess if you can log in to eve in the future your lucky your the leader of the entire CFC and ccp don't have the balls to ban you, Despite the pretty damn clear EULA

Just for the record, now that you're sober... How likely are we to see more of this rot? :

I have to question the sincerity of this apology after reading your earlier posts about the incident. ~100058~. You said on twiter you were resigning, was that a troll? I highly doubt you would care one iota if not for the public outcry. You have brought shame and dishonor to CCP, CSm abd the entire Eve community. Do the right thing and step down from CSM.

HAHA, no.

I actually just LOST respect for you posting this apology. You know damn well you don't mean it, and anyone who can't handle some "cyber bullying" doesn't need to be playing EVE.

We all know this is political ass kissing for CCP and Mittani, to reduce backlash from media.

I mean, WTF happened to the CCP motto of "Harden the *uck Up"

He's waiting for you to resign first, D3. You're the one who actually violated the rules, he just did something he feels bad about... he admits it... but you...

A black stain forever, I think. Mittani will never enjoy the same level of respect he did before.

The Damage you've already brought to the Game in the form of bad reviews from multiple gaming sites including is reason enough for you to resign from CSM.

You did not think before you spoke. Someone who does not think of the consequences is not someone people should want on the CSM board. It shows how immature you truely are.

CCP is suffering quite a bit from this one players cry for attention. Whether it was intentional or not, it's not how "you" see it, it's how the outside world sees it. And right now, CCP and EvE Online has a very very dark light cast on it.

I must say you did right to say sorry and apologize.

You totally shocked me as someone who admire your achieves and what you build up in an game like eve, also how the things you created affected a whole game and the changes you made ccp do for the enjoyment of us all.

I dont like the personality of the mittani, but the work you did.

After i read about your speech and saw it in an youtube video i felt shocked. I acted quickly and i made a petition to ccp about the laws and problems this speech involves even in europe, usa or iceland.

Now you did a great step to say public sorry, i would find it very positive of you when you say sorry to the person who is your victim in this term.

My Rage feels satisfied now, but i must also say that you crossed a line you never should have cross. The Line between Game and Realitiy, and the Line between game and Laws in Reality.

I hope you critic yourself from now on more often, or change some attitudes, i think also for some people maybe your victim also a apologize is not enough. Maybe you do something nobody thinks you will ever do.

You could help your victim in many ways, you can give him a save home in your alliances space, and this should silence all critics even from me.
I guess this would show us also that you will be a chairmen who dont need to step down. Otherwise, words without consequences are just words to say to please yourself and maybe others.

"Incidentally, if you want to make the guy kill himself, his name is [redacted]," Alex said, adding that "he has his own corp. Find him."

Abet to cyberbullying with the intend to cause a real life suicide.

Really that reads just GREAT for a lawyer. Well it does not. Maybe you should explain this to your law firm before they find out by a thrid party? Is this maybe even a crime in your state?

Oh and nice writeup, but not very convincing as we all know honesty isn't your strong side is it?
