No SC Retraction from The Escapist

Cloud Imperium Games demanded a retraction from The Escapist after the site recently posted an article attributing negative quotes about the Star Citizen project to current and former CIG employees. Yesterday's deadline for the retraction has come and gone, and instead of backtracking, the site has posted a defiant update to the article in question, saying:
Update: The Escapist, notwithstanding Cloud Imperium Games' notice and posting, stands by its coverage of Star Citizen and intends to continue to investigate the developing story. Since publishing our original stories, we have been contacted by, and are currently interviewing, additional sources corroborating a variety of the reported allegations. Additionally, if Mr. Roberts' offer for The Escapist to "meet the developers making the game and see how we're building one of the most ambitious PC games first hand" remains open, we take the opportunity to accept such invitation so as to hopefully provide the public with sufficient information and opportunity to vet such sources' allegations and claims for themselves. We have also communicated the foregoing directly to Cloud Imperium Games.

That's just one of the many sad facts about this situation. The idea that they're scamming anyone is absurd, we have plenty of evidence they're making a game and way too many people are employed for this to be any sort of scam. At worst its a project being run badly but we don't have enough info yet to really determine that. People feel entitled to know everything about the project, ignoring the fact that they willingly gambled money on an unknown and did not buy shares or even a product. If you want to be a patron of the arts then you don't get to cry about knowing the inner workings as if you were a stockholder of the company. I had to laugh at that moron dork snort demanding financials on the game as if he has any right to the financial statements of a private company because of a kickstarter pledge, what a fucking joke. I wasn't happy with the direction of the game so I got my kickstarter pledge refunded and went on with my day like a rational human being instead of trying to make war on chris roberts as if he fucked my wife.

Devs on these kinds of things are going to be a lot less likely to disclose info for fear that some random basement dweller will try to twist it against them. OH OH YOU SAID YOU USED 5K ON TRAVEL! I BET IT FILLED YOUR 401k AND YOUR PRIVATE JET! *gurgle* You've got idiots doxxing his family, making all sorts of baseless accusations and these things read like supermarket tabloids. I wouldn't blame Roberts if he refunded the pledges, told everyone to go fuck themselves and signed off like the Cube World guy after the death threats and DDOS.
