I am waiting to hear what mittens says.... what is interesting here is the Space Pope himself wields power over the community, not the so called "community managers".
CCP has (made the mistake of?) given power to the players, whether percieved or real and they have spoken.
CCP is in a world of shit... No one knows exactly how many people have unsubbed (I hear 1M in subs per year) and who knows how much of that is real vs. rage. What is clear is they have got the message that they have an unmitigated PR fiasco and have made it worse by CCP Zulu's Japanese fetish pants post.
What makes me very nervous is the fact the the Space Pope (Mittens) himself was the one who got everyone to calm down (a wee bit at least) enough to let everyone say "Ok, the CSM is heading to Mecca (Iceland) lets see if the Mountain moves". (Bit of a arab culture joke there....) http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/as...e-mohamme.html
The fact that a CSM wields so much power over a community should scare the living shit out of CCP.....
