    Yeah, I was thinking the same
    thing. If his email to Dave and
    Mike is true, he is under a huge
    amount of pressure, has a
    newborn baby, and seemingly
    has a previous domestic violence dispute, just lost a job/contract
    and is clearly a bit unbalanced
    and gets riled up really easily. The internet at large poking that
    hornets nest over and over
    again... Not that he isn't a huge cock, he clearly is, but I think the point has been made.
    I agree with you both on this. He's already asked folk if they are waiting for him to top himself, as an hyperbolic response, but the thought is there. Mix in the pressure of public attention, plus he already thinks he's being DDOSd, and that's a sign for the mob to back off.

    however it does stink very much of "apologising just because he was caught"

    either way, i am not the sort of person to take part in bullying, internet or otherwise, however i also don't really care if bullys get what is coming to them either.

    90% chance that other stuff he is saying is lies anyway.

    I just simply don't care either way, it's not my business. This kind of thing is not too far from a bunch of women reading and gossiping about the latest shite they read in Now/Ok!/Heat.

    Fuck him. Anyone who commits domestic violence deserves no fucking sympathy whatsoever.

    "He deserves what he gets"

    Every bully says this.

    Penny arcade should never have made this public, dealt with it privately instead, no matter how big a cock the guy is.

    It always turns out this way though. Some cock causes an uproar 10x the size of the actual issue.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Pretty sad that most of the backlash directed at him is over twitter quotes he never actually said though.

    I think he did deserve to get put on their site but the internet went too far like it always does. He gets that abusive with customers, uses the names of big companies like PAX to back him up, tells the owner of PAX pretty much to his face "who the fuck are you". That's what got him posted on PA, not the early stuff. The first email Mike sent was private. It went public when Paul went "who the fuck are you".

    I like how he's now on twitter saying that it's all great, he'll continue to do the same thing, that Mike doing what he did was akin to a stranger walking up to another stranger in a bar and challenging him to a fight without telling him he knows kung fu. He thinks this will sell even more controllers and people will want to work with him more and he'll just keep on doing what he does because he "gets in clubs for free" and he's "connected".

    He's something else.

    Basically, if he just shut the fuck up and crawled back under a sun bed somewhere the internet would forget about him and that would, largely, be that. But he's retweeting all the people that have come out and disowned him, retweeting links to stories on the web exposing more of his shonky business tactics, he thinks he Da Man and he's milking it.

    Shut the fuck up and go home dude.

    Is this guy's claim in his emails to be 38 remotely true? Because he writes like (and comes across as) a particularly simple 13-year-old.

    That's what happens when you allow teens to buy steroids online.

    I'd have though that if any of the ages people on here have claimed to be are remotely true, it'd have taught us that you can't estimate anyone's age by how they write.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
