I dunno about this time, but the last time I went off on him was because he claimed that unrevealed sources have confirmed to him that CCP and Augusta are made in house.
That's not an opinion. That's disinformation. If he had presented it as "Some folks had told me this, but I don't know if its true or not" then it's more clearly simply a theory rather than confirmed truth. Thankfully Fuuma came in and cleared up the misconception.
Why him doing this bothers me so much is because this is how baseless hype gets started. Some idiot newbs show up to the thread and read what he writes that shit spreads and it's impossible to completely unring that bell no matter how many Fuumas show up. Just like with any other baseless rumor.
That's probably why folks look at him as a cancer to this thread. If he relayed unsubstantiated information in a less authoritative tone I think people would chill out.
