"It was a month ago, and [recently] 'what's his name' wrote an article...
Until then, I wasn't getting any emails - I got a couple here and there but nothing major.
Regardless of what CCP's ruling is, that standard that they're employing should be applied fairly to all parties, and it's a bit strange to me that Erotica 1 is being targeted for real-life harassment as the basis for his being banned, but Ripard Teg's use of a blog to essentially force CCP into a position to be banned is not being addressed. "If Bonus Rounds were a problem, CCP should have let me know," he concluded.
I find that especially troubling given Ripard's position - being in a Skype channel with GMs [game moderators] and such." Aleks was asked if he would have targeted a specific player while a member of the CSM.

Host Funkybacon heard how there were upwards of 100 Bonus Rounds recorded since it started a year ago, and how it was a kind of Punkd-style prank scam that people have profited from taking part in.This happened a month ago, but it became a controversy when influential Eve Online character Ripard Teg - a member of the player-elected Council of Stellar Management - wrote a strongly worded blog post about the incident, a week ago, which labelled Erotica 1 "a despicable, vile, evil human being".
