I like your stance, Helen Highwater. I wish more people would wise up and work with the system rather than try to defeat it.

I'm curious about your feelings toward something, and I want to stress that I'm not asking how you would present this to the CSM; I'm just curious what YOU think about the issue known as the Thousand Papercuts project.

Regardless of your answer, I will say that I've already decided whether or not I will vote for you, and best of luck on the election!

Hi Helen,

Can you explain why the voter base should respect you as an individual or trust any words coming from you? I am concerned given multiple sources pointing back to comments you have made regarding another delegate and linked so kindly by The Mittani, specifically using discriminatory words to describe someone based on sexual orientation. Such actions bring into question your professionalism and integrity; comments?

I think there are a bunch of small quality of life features that could and should be worked into the schedule by CCP. I'm aware of Akita T's Thousand Papercuts project and it's something I support. I was pleased when CCP recently announced there would be a patch entirely composed of small fixes along these lines. My concern is that these 'mini-expansions' while welcome may be counter-productive in the long term as there may be a tendency to hold off on small fixes until there are enough ready to go that can be bundled together. I'd rather see them added as bonus fixes to existing releases where possible.

I do not use sexual orientation pejoratively. On the Goonfleet forum I speak to an audience using terms appropriate for that audience, I would not use those terms outside of that context. In that context it has nothing to do with sexual orientation, it is simply a commonly used term of disparagement that has long since shed its original meaning to that audience. In any case I am strongly opposed to discrimination or prejudice based on sexual orientation and do not intend for my words to be interpreted as hostile to others on that basis.

I find it interesting to note that there are a lot of people posting to this thread against Helen, though not one of them is able to give reasons why we should not vote for him beyond specific, small, circumstantial items/events. I want to know why you don't like him. Is it just because his stance is popular and looks good? In any case, I am not ignoring these minor comments; rather they help to reinforce the idea that people should vote for Helen - if none of his enemies can come up with anything bad to say about him then why should I be against him?

You're absolutely right. Sometimes I feel like many of them are being ignored, but it might just be that CCP isn't ready to fix them yet. There could be any number of reasons that we the players don't understand that are delaying their implementation. Still, I like to keep pointing these things out to them. That's what gets these things highlighted.

Regardless of my undisclosed vote, I definitely support Helen Highwater for CSM!!!

Thanks for your support, don't forget to tell your friends too. For CSM 4 and 5 I missed out on a full delegate spot by less than twenty votes each time so every single vote counts.

Good question Reaver!

Helen's reply above clears up a bit of the mud. While it isn't sufficient to convince me to that side of the fence it does somewhat put things into overall perspective. Going into that further, I am not personally fond of the cynical attitude presented right from the beginning by Helen's Goonswarm.com post yet we have to take into account that he's been there and I have not.

Would I pick up a torch and yell "LYNCH!" ? Not at this stage. However, you will not see me pressing support pamphlets into the hands of pods and podettes either.

The way people act behind "closed doors" is usually a reliable indicator of their personal attitudes and personality. How enlightening that you defend your exposed behavior by suggesting that using such language to viciously insult people is done only because the Goon audience is more likely to accept the message that way. It also suggests you will say whatever you think you need to say to ANY audience (including all other voters) to gain acceptance for your message. Whether or not your message is what you actually mean.

This is basic communication, you frame your message for the audience who is to receive it. It doesn't mean that the message changes fundamentally or that the person is presenting themselves dishonestly. For that to be true you'd need to demonstrate that my opinions and positions expressed in different places are incompatible with each other. Which you can't so you are resorting to rather dull faux-outrage in lieu of making an honest argument.

In any case I came here to post that I've just wrapped up an interview with Lost In Eve and it should be available on their site by early next week.

Another interview and discussion on New Eden Radio tonight. They assure me that the download will be available in a couple of hours. Listen in to me and a bunch of other CSM candidates answer questions from the IRC channel.

Edit: it's available to download from this link.

According to http://match.eve-csm.com/ , this one seems to be closest to my opinions.

I might vote just for practice. You never know what you will get anyway.
