What the hell dude? Why are you defending this guy?
From what I can tell, your argument amounts to "I've been a dick before, therefore it's okay to be a dick."
No. No, it's not fucking okay.

As someone who has worked in retail I had my moments where I lost my cool, that's no reason for this campaign of hate.
Not to mention you personally attack those that disagree with you very early on in your ridiculous tirade, accusing them of having persecution complexes.
You, of course, have no fucking idea what their motivations are.
Flying Dagger said:
We tell children not to react when provoked, and yet here all I see are whining rabid enthusiasts taking their persecution complexes to such high levels where it is them themselves that are the bullies. This is not even base reaction, it is overreaction at it's finest. Yes the guy should be fired, but that's it.
This guy was an absolute asshat and failed miserably to do the job he was hired to do.
He is a textbook example of a worthless human being.
If you've worked in PR and you behaved as he did because you were having a bit of a bad day, you need to suffer as well.

You then go on to compare violent vigilante attacks to hate mail on the internet.
Seriously?
Those two things are not even related.
Even with that grievous logical fallacy aside, do you really think the courts are going to punish someone for douchebaggery? You can't be this naive.

That obviously wasn't enough for you. You then start citing hypothetical scenarios that you pulled out of your ass and use that as evidence for the cold-hearted brutality of the internet.

If you still don't believe me - picture this - should his paypal account be hacked, his credit card made available for all to use, would the masses clamouring in approval of the internets actions change their tune? or would they laugh as all his money is spent?
What the fuck? You have no idea how the internet would react in such circumstances, yet you pretend to know.

I could go on and on, tearing apart your posts piece by piece, but this is a waste of my fucking time.

We aren't anonymous. This isn't /b/. This isn't 2007. You're confusing what happened then with what's happening now.
Are some of the attacks excessive? Yes. Death threats and the like are uncalled for.
Do I give a shit? No. Not really.
He brought it upon himself. For this kind of behavior to go unpunished would, I think, be the greater crime.

Enough of your "slippery slope" fallacies. No, this does not lead to violent attacks.
It's not fucking okay to be an asshole, either.
Just fucking stop.

Is there anyone left that feels like defending this jackass? Really?

I like how he apologizes to Mike just because he "didn?t know how big" his site is or that he was the guy who runs PAX (and he evidently didn't realize PAX was tied to Penny Arcade.)

So basically it's like "I'm sorry, if I knew you were a big deal I would have been a brown-nosing toadie instead!"

Honestly I think he deserves some punishment for all this, you don't act like a complete ass and expect not to be attacked for it. If it's linked to the net then you'll get twice the amount you throw and unless you're an utter moron, you should see it coming.

However I think that those people sending death threats need a good slap in the face/kick in the nuts, even worse if it involves the man's family.

Isn't he now extorting the company that's producing, as Dave said, a really good product and pretending to be other employees?
He's spent his entire career like this.
1. Seemingly scamming the company, pretending to be a marketer.
2. In that amount of time, abusing their customers, effectively losing even more money for them.
3. Pretending to be other employees.
4. Extortion.

He didn't just lose his cool, he's a moron trying to get away with a list of very serious crimes. Penny Arcade posted this and actually earned some great PR for the company this man sabotaged for his own gain.

....How did this guy get into PR? Seriously, did he go to school for it? If so, they should have taught him to not be a ****.

Also, any history he had in the business should have blackballed him. So this would have to be his first foray into PR, so why did they leave him unsupervised!?

Morons.

In the words of Nelson Muntz: "HAW HAW"!

Seriously, it's like they say: if you mess with the bull, you get the horns".
