I don't get why people always must hate someone. Last time pretty much everyone here hated Eurogamer, considering them to have betrayed Rab. This time Lauren is the target.

Sorry, but it is sickening when the reaction of unaffected third persons is so much harsher than of those affected. Rab himself wrote the first time that he wasn't mad with EG and yet people ignored it.

Here he wrote about his impressions in all details: http://botherer.org/2012/10/26/guest-post-robert-florence-on-the-last-few-days/

So do you think that he considers Lauren to be evil? No? So why do YOU?
She was naive, panicked and probably got some ill advise. She was without a doubt dumb, but that's it. Don't pretend that you never were.

I don't think she's evil by any stretch of the imagination. And if she had just done the C&D legal threat and that was the end of it, yeah, I'd have agreed she was stupid.

But she kept. feeding. the fire. to cover up her own actions. How many "coincidences" do you have to see that rely on one another before it starts being a little hard to swallow? She didn't just make one bad decision, she doubled down on the bad decisions like six or seven different times, and as a public figure (which she strove to be), she brought all the hateraid down on herself.
