    I know there's something wrong about it, but it's so enjoyable watching these internet meltdowns.

    Yeah that guy committed career suicide. The absolute last person you want to get in a shitting contest is Mike. He's stubborn enough to not drop it, one of the biggest names with the biggest soapbox in the community and he's spiteful enough to direct it like a giant moon laser. That shoots metaphorical shit.
    This. I looove when Mike gets to do this to someone.

    Also, this, this is beautiful:

    Just fired off a quick little e-mail...
    From: [Redacted]
    To: [email protected]

    I suggest that you conduct a review with all of your company employees and contractors on the topic of proper measures they should take in order to protect the security of their e-mail accounts, especially when logging in to said account on personal or home PC's.

    Based on the e-mails ostensibly sent by one Paul Christoforo to a customer asking about his pre-order and to Mike Krahulik of Penny Arcade (since made public on numerous industry websites), I can only conclude that one of Mr. Christoforo's children, perhaps in the age range of 10-13 years, somehow gained access to his account and maliciously impersonated him in the aforementioned correspondence. Surely no adult employed in the fields of marketing, PR, or customer service would embarrass himself and his company by behaving in such a rude and immature way.

    Apparently his blog has been a patchwork of stolen articles without attribution.

    It also looks like he deleted his twitter account. That should fix it, good thinking.

    So somebody else has @OceanMarketting's Twitter account now, since he changed the name. This just keeps getting better.

    also of note is that their website still shows the twitter feed for the old twitter name

    I don't fucking believe this. His new account is still misspelled. How the fuck does this guy breathe?

    Well somebody else has @OceanStrategy. Based on his old account he seems to just misspell or transpose the name if he can't get it.

    Dumb, but I think I actually like that better than a corporate name generator.

    No, it was available when he got the mispelled one. People saw his move and leapfrogged him.

    Haha, wow, okay then. That is just perplexing.

    Look, do you want a PR guy that just spells shit by the book or do you want a guy with fresh ideas? It isn't spelled incorrectly, it's spelled better. Stop clinging to your outdated notions of spelling and customer service and embrace the future.

    What would really be great right now is if the mayor of Boston had a twitter and chimed in saying he has no idea who this guy is.

    The misspellings are intentional. It's all part of his stratagy.
