Another Genuine Open Letter For Chris Spears... Nov 14, 2018 23:04:05 GMT

Whilst I have had a lot of fun raising a middle finger to all those whose personal failings have been so painfully revealed recently, it's time to talk more seriously to you, Chris Spears.
We know you obsessively track everything people who've become disgusted with the development of Shroud, and who have personally for what ever reason drawn welts on your excessively thin skin. This one has not long since gone up, but have you seen this thread from "Starman2112" on Reddit yet?
In it, he claims to have proof that you are yet again ranting about me personally towards other backers. The compression of the image is low enough that it might easily be forged, but let's use it as at least the basis of an attempt to get you to understand, whilst the official "F2P launch" falls down around your ears and the average steam figures are already back down to around 250, just exactly why I knew you wouldn't dare turn up at Arbitration.
Some facts first of all; I'm pretty much certain that the second controller of the Portalarium account which allowed for months unmoderated harassment of me, deliberately censored anything I said whilst openly backing abuse, then eventually banned me using the use of the word "liar", was you personally.
And it wasn't just you saying "suck it" on a stream 5 years ago. You got caught personally deliberately trying to lie and insult myself, and so many others, even about something as easy to cross check as the figures on the Steam Store page. You have a long, long history of abusing critical customers, so much so that you admitted yourself that you couldn't be trusted with moderation powers on your old Reddit account.
I could link to that too. I could link to so much evidence of similar behaviour, and that is why you didn't dare face me at Arbitration. Instead all that needs to be said is you decided to try and take the contents of the police reports myself and others had informed you of, and forge them as if we had been doing it to you; you used genuine harm being threatened towards our loved ones, and thought you could manipulate that to then further harm the victims because of your own petty malice.
And there's no negative comments where you can see them, because you get enraged and then ban anyone who tries to raise them.
But that's not the point of this Open Letter. The point is to make sure you're aware of just how self destructively stupid you've been too.
Is the above a genuine leak from "Starman"? Is it forged? It's irrelevant. You see, I long ago worked out "Starman" was just another sock puppet of the user called "jammaplaya." Now you, you didn't want to look too closely because you personally enjoyed him harassing critics too. You even quoted his jamma signature, didn't you "old friend", in the hopes of taking a sneaky swipe at further upsetting myself and others; But "Starman" has been posting obsessively about all criticism of the game being "paid social engineers" and deliberately making your community look crazy in public for years.
It was also the "Starman" account that demanded you track down our IP addresses in public, remember? How strange he wasn't censored then.
Here's the thing; I'm honest enough to admit that the more I looked at the evidence, the more blatant it became that the same unhinged individual was also trying to burn Portalarium down to further stroke his own narcissistic personality disorder, to use you to lash out at everyone he hates. But he's never really cared about you or your product; In fact, my own belief is that he only came to Shroud alongside the first wave of Griefer trash hoping, like early UO, to use it as a tool in his stalking and harassment; and like any brainless, toxic parasite, he will quite happily also harm or kill his host.
So do you know why "Starman" is only now claiming to abandon Shroud, despite lying so blatantly on your forums about supporting it for so long? Because you've got a few months left at best, and he wants to pretend he's getting out before it implodes to try and further frustrate the critics too. Because it's all been a sick game to him, just like he bragged he was using Berek previously.
I even gave you the links to that too, didn't I? You'd have had a fantastic time trying to argue why you ignored that obvious evidence of being asked to support harassment at Arbitration, wouldn't you? Which again, is why you didn't dare show up. But I didn't fall for it. Not for the Duke pledge that "Starman" has claimed to sell on Reddit at least 4 different times I've seen; not for the tickets to SotACon he said he was selling, but that he was never listed as being a hoped for attendee even when he said he was still supportive; none of it has ever been true.
The claims of being emotionally vulnerable to the point you'd sell your car and phone to support Shroud? That was another one of his sock puppets too, one currently trying to sneak more gaslighting in about me over at Raw. The open admissions he was resetting his phone data to abuse the online polls Shroud was in, and the claims he was making he multiple Steam accounts to warp the coverage and organising voting up the positive and down the negative reviews? He did those directly on his "jammaplaya" account.
Almost all the most unhinged, outrageous, damaging behaviour has come from him.
I even specifically called out how I could see he was prepared to ask you to destroy your entire reputation in my response to the PM thread, didn't I?
He's everywhere, remember? It's even right there in his signature.
And now he's doing it to you personally. After years of trying to gaslight myself in particular, and Reddit in general by claiming we were all social engineers whilst playing his weird psychotic games, now he's personally obsessing about Reddit to you and claiming that you need to keep on obsessing about "Titler" and Reddit too but it's all somehow your fault that there's so much negativity... Yes, I can see how he's clearly tried to make you think you're responsible for the abuse he's sent, then he clips out his own part of the conversation, and only uses the parts that make you look bad... Just like he didn't provide to you the name behind the quotes about supposedly self harming because of me either, did he...?
So do I feel bad? That if the above PMs are true, if the discord chat from Deadlyhabit is true, if the claims sent to me supposedly from the developers you sacked are true (but which I've never published because I can't verify), that it seems in your blind hatred of anyone who pricks your pomposity bubble you've also become obsessed with me personally? That I might have been an unwitting tool of a genuine narcissistic psychopath feeding you that madness (just as he's fed the few idiots at Raw who couldn't see through it either), and helped lead to the destruction of a game I once backed?
No, never, because you willingly chose the immoral, stupid, hateful path yourself too. He asked you to try to hurt someone and you jumped willingly into doing it. I'd have fought you to protect what was right, to protect my loved ones, no matter what ridiculous reasoning had led you to being part of that harassment.
Resisting what you chose to become was always the right thing to do.
Meanwhile, as Shroud sinks below the waves, I hope you have just enough time to ponder the story of the scorpion and the frog...
