Such a tragic waste of a man's life. But, it looks like he lived well. May he RIP.

I met Vile Rat in a fleet once. He was yelling at the fleet commander to stop being retarded and getting people killed (thanks DBRB). Seemed like a really great guy.

This hit me really hard when it happened. I didn't find out until Tuesday morning that the random "state official" was VR. I've been playing Eve since 2006, and ... this isn't what's supposed to happen. Video games are my escape from reality, and when reality leaks - or, is violently thrust - into fantasy, it's very jarring.

Rest in Peace VR. Never met the guy, but I haven't heard a bad thing of him since I started playing EVE.

Here's an image about a google search about an unconfirmed story about the ambassador that is all around the rightwing web right now. imgur

Not a single main stream story, but every single right wing hack is running with it, although the claim in the story is completely unconfirmed, but why let that stop them?

Anyway, I apologize if this thread should be more dedicated to the memory of Sean Smith.

I would like to make a joke... is that okay? I'm not trying to offend, but in any other situation my joke would be funny, but I don't want to disrespect anyone who is grieving. So I will make the joke in my head, chuckle to myself and then feel bad about it.

With Al Queda harboring number of known sexual deviants in its ranks, is it difficult to believe something like this can happen?
They've been all about rape, kiddy diddling, misogyny, slavery and rape in the past. Necrophilia wouldn't seem unusual in that context.

The claim is single sourced from a Lebanese news agency of unknown agenda. The reference AFP who says the story is unconfirmed.

Is it difficult to believe something like this happened?

The current story is the Ambassador died of smoke inhalation in what people are describing as a terrible fire with very thick smoke. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of time for sodomy to have occurred. But maybe it did.

It's a single source unconfirmed story with some pretty nasty implications. If you can make murder worse and even more inflammatory, this story does it.

Is it ethical to publish such a story at this time with no further confirmation?

Who profits at this time by publishing this story with no confirmation? Truth? The world? Ambassador Steven's family? Peace? The United States? Romney and the Right Wing?

Who profits depends on who believes.
Romney gains nothing from weakly demonizing an enemy that his followers hate in far stronger terms. This is like asking FDR to follow Admiral "Blood and Guts" Halsey onto the stage.
The family of the deceased (or any thinking citizen, for that matter) shouldn't accept news from an unknown blogger. As you said, it wont make mainstream without a credible source.
This leaves it with us tin foil hatters who will google to get details like this, and among the most extreme conspiracy theorists are the followers of Al Queda.

Its not like Muslim extremists are unfamiliar with depraved sexual acts. Their shtick about 72 virgins and female circumcision is in the farking Al Queda brochure. A few bits of misinformation (which may not be entirely untrue anyway) can help to get more doors slammed in their face. It drives a wedge between the moderates and extremists if "freedom fighters" are painted as being the kind of men who'd rape another mans corpse.

We are fighting a war on terror, so I'd say we benefit if the enemy is effectively slandered.

My GF has a medium frame and large boobs. And I do mean large. Runs in her family. Plus, she was a nationally competitive dancer all the way through high school so she's got a dancer's body. Reasonably fit and toned... She likes to take those sensual dancing and pole dancing classes for fun/exercise.

I fully expect people to call BS on me. I know I would. Glob only knows how I landed such a wonderful woman. I'm trying to lock that shiat down with a ring on her finger, at the moment.

Yeah, thinking about it.

Need an entirely new computer first. And I wouldn't have a huge amount of time for it.

But goddamn where some of those fights against LV and BOB fun back in the day, as where the occasional DC area goon meets.

I played Eve from beta until just last year, under a variety of identities. Vile Rat always struck me as one of the good Goons, at least in public. Despite all the in-game and out-of-game vitriol, generally rl biomassing seemed to bring out the decency in most players. I drive over the road as a trucker currently so I'm not gonna resub any time soon but you guys lost a good man there. As did the people who knew him more personally.

Can I list Eve experience on applications for government jobs now? I used to run solo Badgers through Curse Alliance blockades, over 50 runs through 40+ nullsec jumps and no lost ships, with only my own alt as a scout. Surely that could translate into hazardous duty transportation stuff. Between that and fleet ops, I'd think it could legitimately be useful mental training for rl situations.

I don't suppose VR's gig was due to his Eve-related experience. Certainly a Libya or ME posting would benefit from Eve-related diplomatic experience.
