Journal Alioth's Journal: Gold farming orgs advertising on Slashdot... 4

Today I saw a big ad for Evony on Slashdot's front page. Do the editors know that a Chinese gold farming operation is advertising here?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/gamesblog/2009/jul/15/games-evony-spam-internet

The scum^Wpeople behind Evony are also trying to sue Bruce Everiss (a games industry marketer/blogger) - who is from the UK, in the Australian courts(!) for defamation for posting about it...

  • Ye gods, I didn't know Bruce was still around. I remember the days when he was at Imagine. In fact, I think I still have magazines with ads for their stillborn Psyclapse and Bandersnatch megagames.

      The funny thing about Bruce Everiss is he still is in denial that Psyclapse and Bandersnatch and the general mismanagement of Imagine caused the collapse of the company (which was well documented at the time - there was even a 'fly on the wall' TV programme while Imagine augered itself into the ground)
