I like making posts in threes

Presented with a comment along the lines of "What the fuck is wrong with these people?". (Again, not the techies, I know only too well what it means to have some besuited fucktool sitting back citing the assurances of the dickhead who'd sooner lie and look good than tell the truth about how horribly wrong things are going to go).

From http://www.war-europe.com

"Due to technical reasons we are postponing the Collector’s Edition Head Start code validation to 02:00 CET. Apologies for any inconvenience caused."

Of course, this'll add to the current meme that IanC, (the community manager who posted the idiotic and transparently lie filled comments around the internet) keeps mistaking the servers for a place to pour waste coffee.

...but just to let you know that Iain is a very good friend of mine who has suffered a lot personally because of this, so please be careful what you say about him where I can see it ;) While I know this has been crap from a customer POV, I have both sides of the story, and you don't :)

Well, first of all you shouldn't, under any circumstances, have both sides of the story because that stuff is highly confidential (though in fairness, confidentiality seems to be a bit lax there since I have another side of the story myself). Either way though, the saga seems to be approaching an end so there's little more to say on the topic.

I haven't a clue why I shouldn't, under any circumstances, know about personal problems of a friend of mine. I don't know anything about the technical aspects of the screw-up, if that's what you mean. I couldn't bloody care less. It's a sodding computer game, and I have no interest in computer games.

However, you said some insulting things about a friend of mine and called him an idiot and a liar, and that's what I was objecting to. He's neither, thank you very much.

But genuinely, there's no need to get so defensive and ratty as I didn't mean you had to stop holding your opinion, or even espousing it - like I said, I know it's been a complete disaster and galling for customers - I was just letting you know and asking that you please not put me in the awkward and uncomfortable position of having to hear/see it.

All it needs is a cut tag and I know to skip over it :)
