Tells everything one needs to know about Eve-Online "community". CCP's attempts to wash their hands on the issue are plain pathetic. For years they've not only ignored but glorified those who harass other players due to race, gender or permanent disabilities, yet now that such activities became common knowledge, CCP is insisting that "we do not condone harasssment". That incident is just tip of the iceberg (of pure loser-ness) that is the vast majority of Eve-Online player base.
It's no different than any other player base. EVE Online is just the only one that has the confluence of nerds, free drinks and public speaking at their events.
