Adam Ridgway was caught doing it. And only then was he apologetic.



Actually, Adam Ridgway was apologetic before he was caught by CCP, refering to his own actions as "stupid" before even reaching the CCP office in the morning (a qualifier with which I agree). The topics he had championed were brought up and defended though.

Larkonis Trassler is a god amongst men and has my vote should he decide to run again.

Wasn't this guy up for selling the Alliance Tournament slots before this?
Well, I guess it's not surprising that he managed to come up with this debacle Laughing ... nor do I think this would be his last.

Props to CCP for decisive action which should set the stage and expectations for future CSM delegates.
However, what I would really like to see is what sort of affirmative action(s) that CCP will take to mitigate or prevent this from ever happening again in the future?

As for Adam Ridgway (aka Larkonis Trassler); you're a disgrace and unworthy of the responsibility of CSM, let alone your own signature on an NDA. I hope you're name is quickly forgotten.


If anything, his name should, and must, be remembered. Through this debate, we are skirting round the one true issue here.

It was not Larkonis Trassler who broke the NDA and exploited his role in the CSM. It was Adam Ridgway.

He signed a legally binding Non Disclosure Agreement.

He broke this agreement, by using his role in the CSM to further his own ends.

He was caught doing it. And only then was he apologetic.

He posted on Scrapheap Challenge after this apology, referring to such market manipulation as 'Jew Trading'. Clearly alluding to offensive anti-semitic stereotypes.

He also posted a degrading comment in the same thread about the prospect of 'spit-roasting' an Icelandic native, all while being supposedly apologetic.

Recruiting employers are not dumb people, and routinely search for applicant names on Google. A search for him will reveal him to be an untrustworthy applicant, incapable of fulfilling the obligations of any future contract, as well as having issues with regards females and those of the jewish faith.



The internet has a long memory.




BAHAHA somebody call the whaaaaaambulance for this man.

Larkonis Trassler

I may not have voted for him this time around, but I most certainly will for next year's CSM.

His actions (before, during, after) and the support he's receiving from the remaining CSMs prove to me he's just the sort of player I wish to represent my interests.

Certainly don't want you lot representing my interests. Not sure CCP could hear you over the tears anyway. Very Happy

Sorry to have appeared "whiny" about the whole thing. I definitely support the CSM and intend to honor any commitment I made to fill in.

I was just not so happy about how I found out about this and dissappointed that someone that took part in the CSM process did something that could damage any support the pilots of Eve have given the CSM.

On some level though, it is pretty epic, elect a pirate and what do you know, they act like a pirate! Very Happy

Me personally though, I think perma-ban is more appropriate. This is a pretty big abuse of trust.

If that was a matter of such concern, you could always have declined the invitation to step into Lark's seat, in order to preserve your ability to run again and IF you got elected be able to carry on with your agenda from the get-go.

An active CSM spends 20 hours a week doing that job? Seriously? I find that difficult to believe. Some weeks perhaps, but not the average week. Unless they are trust fund babies or have no other life.

+++

I don't understand why CSMs' real life names are required to be publicly exposed by CCP. They don't require it for ISD volunteers. So why for the CSM delegates? I would guess most folks would prefer to keep their gaming activities separate from their RL activities unless they were already working in the gaming industry. A volunteer job like the CSM should not require revealing your real name to anyone but CCP. It's just not information the player base needs to know to make an informed decision about who to vote for.

The way Lark's RL name is being repeatedly bandied about in this thread--in ways deliberately intended to affect search engine results--is really ****ty. Did you ever stop to think about the fact that it could indeed affect his ability to get a job in the future when some overzealous background checker finds this tempest in a teapot thread in an archive somewhere? WTF is wrong with you? This is a real person we're talking about. He made a dumb mistake in a volunteer position related to a virtual universe and involving virtual money. He 'fessed up. It's done with. Give it a friggin break already. CCP should delete this thread altogether or at least remove Lark's RL name from every post that contains it...although the damage is probably done now WRT search engines.

FWIW if he ran again, he'd get ALL my accounts' votes. Even if I was running myself, I'd vote for Lark.

FFS... If he hadn't thought about 'spit-roasting' some gorgeous red-headed Icelandic native, I'd be suggesting he toddle off to his doctor for a testosterone implant... The making of eve vid had a couple of gorgeous redheads that I'd certainly share with a close friend, spit-roast style...

He shouldnt be perma'd. Thats all i have to say on the matter- but barring him from ever being in the CSM again is probably a good idea.

The CSM is a RL position, not a game role, hence the RL names of the members get made public.

The NDA is a RL contract, not a game rule.

What he did, he did as a person in real life, not as a player just in a game.


You are the one that doesn't know when the game stops and hard reality begins.

I seem to remember that people with a ban on even one of their accounts can be excluded from candidate eligibility. I thought that was partly why he recieved a short ban, so CCP can prevent him from ever becoming a representative again, if they so choose.

You might not care that a CSM abused his power to illegally further his own selfish agenda by cheating his way to the top. In fact, because he's "one of your own" I'm willing to bet you wouldn't care of any cheating he does because he's "your friend". But many of us do. Get over yourself and your hypocrisy. Oh, and don't be mad :P.
