And now CR threatens legal action on The Escapist. Guess it's time to break out the popcorn.
That's weird. I mean, if it's true, it really doesn't sound like a smart move at all. He's really got nothing to gain from it, and a lot of goodwill to lose. "Developer delaying product and threatening journalists for talking about it" really isn't a good PR situation.And now CR threatens legal action on The Escapist.

In the case of StarCitizen, it's a bit more complex than that. Remember, they only got a couple of million through KickStarter. The rest was through their own service, which is an entirely different situation. Presumably, their lawyers would have been very careful indeed to specify terms that work best for CIG and minimise the risk. But, if it ever does come to court (hopefully it won't - I mean, we're speculating here about possible consequences, but I don't think anyone here believes StarCitizen is in trouble), there could well be some major surprises, because consumer law generally tends to side with the consumer. That's out of my league, though, someone who actually knows anything about law would have to comment .Technically if you join crowdfunding you are considered an investor. Whether you make money of it or only get some goodies in return. It is not considered to be a pre ordering service. At least by KS. I think it was never brought to court so far regarding this as obviously investor vs customer would lead to some legal differences.
I believe the Gardiner stories. I get a bad vibe when I see this woman. I have never met her personally though.
I think (emphasis) Chris has married a real dragon and she is dragging him down at every opportunity.
I know it's not a PC thing to say, hopefully I won't get banned.
Never met the person, don't know them, yet believe gossip about them.
I also find the continued attack on Sandi fairly alarming. Why is she being singled out? Because she's my wife? A woman?

Liz deleted her tweets, as someone stated on reddit: "Does anyone on the gg and escapist knows that when you are fired, you have to deliver your magnetic cards?"

I dont know how it will turn out but this just escalated a lot. Derek Smart has hired lawyers and they have a statement ready, he's gonna publish it soon.

Obviously, any man not "under a spell" about his wife has a pretty weak marriage. This is to be expected.
