Dat Shit Cray

When I first listened to this song all I could think was, “What kind of garbage is this?”  Rap lyrics about black dudes in France and fish filets?  Crap. Crap. Crap.  Now I have the same thoughts when I look around at the Eve Online community.  All I can say, “So disappoint, son.”

I’m disappointed for a laundry list of reasons.  However this post isn’t about placing blame, raging, sperging or beating a dead horse.  It’s not about crucifying someone over a mistake.  It’s not to make people feel guilty.  All I want to do is say three things and then I’m done.

1) Let he who has no sin, cast the first stone.
I’m not a religious person by any means, but I have done some extensive religious study.  I think this is one of the coolest lines in the Bible when it comes to putting things into perspective.  None of us are perfect.  We’ve all made mistakes.  None of us have just cause or reason to sit on a high horse.  Period.

2) A person of good fiber will admit when they’ve done wrong.
This has happened.  An apology both public and private has been issued.  The person that was victimized is over it.  That is what matters.  If you are strong enough to own up for your wrong doings, you deserve respect for that. 

3) If you were not directly involved, you need to shut the hell up.
It’s not your business.  I will repeat.  It’s not your business.  You are not Team America World Police.  You are not the Justice League.  Sit down, shut up, mind your business and stop being such a busy-body.  If you have issue with this, please proceed to point #1.  The individual victimized has seen fit to be done with it, so who the hell are you to do other wise?

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play some Skyrim and League of Legends until folks calm down.  I don’t want to see it or hear about it, so I’ll be removing myself from the situation until it blows over.  I just don’t have the patience for it. 

Feel free to contact me if you know of some kick ass Skyrim mods or if you want to play a game of LoL.  My summoner name is PureEden, I’m level 16 and I’m terrible.  I like to play Sona and Soraka (4ever a healer) as well as the occasional Annie, Siver, Ryze or Tristana.  Also, don’t make my play the carry.  I’m terri-bad as a carry.  Smurfs welcome.



  1. It is a sad day. I can't help feeling shock and something like grief at Alex's decision to step down - even tho I did not vote for him I thoroughly believe that those that did deserve to see their faith honoured.
    Don't give up on EVE babe, we need you and Super-Mits evil genius. Take some time if you need it but it would please me if Alex and crew come back fighting soon.

  2. None of my business? Hey, I play and pay for this game too. Alex is one of its most visible ambassadors, a role that he quite willingly sought out. He writes a column on it at TTH for christ's sakes. So when his actions bring down a shitstorm of negative publicity on this game that I love, I think I have a right to weigh in and tell him it's to leave.

    And yes, none of us are perfect. And yes, he did apologize. And YES people are still punished when they do something wrong. He did wrong. He got punished.

    1. No I don't think it's your business to judge or condemn a person for anything. Come talk to me when you make a foolish mistake and people are howling for your head and threatening to rape and kill your loved ones.

      If you or a loved one find yourself in a similar situation, I hope the people in your shoes are kinder to you and I hope you remember these very words.
