Sorry but you miss the main point. This is about media coverage. One thing is to say that your toon (for instance) is an banana, another thing is to drag your real name all over the internet with stitched tag banana, when it's obvious that you are more of a nut.

He did take it like a man.

Well to be honest it seems to summarise what happened pretty well.

But more than that, it also seems a decent summary of goonswarm out of game tactics against their enemies in Eve Online.


I've got a great one, although not targeted at you

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defamation

That's what Massively did. And Jade, you can hate the character and the player all you want. But if you can't rationally examine what happened during fanfest, and since, I feel sorry for you. The only person who's real life has been negatively impacted by all of this is The Mittani - it's his RL name that's been dragged through the mud. Although I guess it's not cyberbullying because he's a goon, right?

I'd like you to show us the real-world names, faces, and contact information that the Goons are spreading around the internet, defaming or bullying people with.

I would be interested to see the court case really.

Would certainly be a landmark case and quite a high risk strategy for Alexander Gianturco to try to sue for defamation when the video of his behaviour at Fanfest is in wide circulation.

Oh, that's right. It's not about what he did, it's about people knowing what he did.

He's taking it real well as long as everyone pretends he's the real victim.

If you were paying attention he talks about Eve and CCP more than about himself.

Prefacing the following statement with a massive "I am not a lawyer" statement. I studied Philosophy at uni, so I'm not really qualified to talk about this to begin with.

Anyway, isn't one of the main issues with suing someone for slander/libel/defamation that you have to show damages? That is, some kind of court-provable loss? Finances, sanity, health, etc?

Yes which is why its not defimaton/libel and why there will be no court case yet. This does not mean that a media counter offensive to help repair 'damages done' to eve, CCP, and so on by bad reporting isn't needed.
Edit: I say yet because if something happens vis a vie relations with Sony/DUST then maybe CCP could show damages, and have a good case when they point out edited articles, this interview, etc.

You should probably reference the proverb: "He who lives in a glass house should not throw stones".

CCP has a lot of legal exposure here since what happened, happened at their sanctioned (and supposedly content-approved) event.



There's a million angry citizens looking down their tubes..at me.

Yes, in the context that people shouldn't say bad things about him because it makes EVE look bad. OMG maybe DUST is in danger if people hear what kind of a jerk he is! You see, he's the real victim but now he's taking it upon himself to try and protect CCP.

It's artless crap.

Because when they read about him its not going to say GTA 5 player or MW 3 Player its says EVE ONLINE PLAYER, MADE BY CCP GAMES PARTNERED WITH SONY.

Yeah, that's the important part. Everyone should just pretend he's the victim, otherwise CCP gets it in the neck.

SO wait...YOu're saying that after hearing a civilized talk between Mittani and the journalist who wrote and introduced the 'cyber bullying' idea, which was picked up with by OTHER gaming media sites and then picked up HERE in these idiotic forums by NPC morons like yourself where in said journalist TOTALLY retracted the cyber bullying statement that the Mittani has not in any way been victimized, even inadvertently, by the MEDIA? and that said media **** storm will have no effect on CCP, Dust, or Eve.
This is NOT a discussion about fanfest, its a discussion about media coverage and the damage done to the person who is Mittani, CCP, and Eve online the game.
