(11:02:01 PM) directorbot: My people, I have greivous news. Vile Rat has been confirmed to be KIA in Benghazi; his family has been informed and the news is likely to break out on the wire services soon. Needless to say, we are in shock, have no words, and have nothing but sympathy for his family and children. I have known Vile Rat since 2006, he was one of the oldest of old-guard goons and one of the best and most effective diplomats this game has ever seen.

His family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Vile Rat was an awesome goon and an awesome diplo. The Eve community lost one hell of a cool dude today. Unironic o7m8 from the HBC.

I've known Vile Rat for our entire relationship with GSF and he was absolutely critical in teaching me how things work politically in this game. He will be missed deeply and I regret is that when he and I last spoke it was not on good terms.

If the opportunity arises for us to do something to show our love and admiration we will do so, if I get any additional information I will post on the forums.

A quick update, stolen from gfallies:


Fundraiser update

After some conversations with Sean's wife, we will be launching a fundraiser as soon as possible through YouCaring. It might take a few days. In the meantime, if you would like to contribute money directly to Sean's family immediately, you can Paypal vilerat@gmail.com. If you do this, please label the funds as "Personal Gift."

One of us will post a new thread when the full fundraiser is up and running.

EDIT: GSF would prefer you wait for the full fundraiser, however if you must send RIGHT NOW use the gmail above.
