Sieg Fail

Fon Revedhort, a Russian player infamous for his neo-Nazi views which he insists on promoting through his (otherwise very good) pvp videos, has been dropped from the CSM 8 race.

"While he is entitled to his personal opinions, CCP cannot allow someone with the views he has continued to express to represent the EVE player base, and CCP, as a member of the CSM," CCP Dolan said.

"The presence of a player with the views that Fon Revedhort has expressed having a seat on the Council of Stellar Management (CSM) would have the potential to create charged situations between Council members and developers they would work with both virtually and in-person at summits."

Fon and his backers are obviously throwing a tantrum on the Russian forums, blaming "spam from the Goons" for his removal and calling it unfair.

What they seem to ignore is that his views would have never become an issue had he not used the Eve-related media to promote them. His EVE-O forum signature used to be "14" at some point, which is a reference to a David Lane quote: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children." And his current signature on forums is a quote from Nazi writer Houston Chamberlain.

Finally, his video from the previous CSM campaign contained a string of Nazi references and its soundtrack included a song titled "Sieg Heil".

Mein Fuhrer, our candidate has been barred from running for CSM...
