Guy used the funds to pay off some of his student loan debt rather than use it for shipping the actual rewards.
He also wrote this:
I want direct funding for my living necessities. I want to establish relationships with a group of people who can pay for my baseline needs like food and rent. I am looking for people who do not feel they need to see any “return” on their “investment.”
Seriously, fuck him.
I wholeheartedly agree with what you said about J.C. IMO When you create a Kickstarter, you must adopt a corporate mindset; Kickstarter is not a Social website where you can post your feelings and "Opinions", it is a Dragon's Den, where each of your backers are investors in your business.
I believe it’s possible to post your feelings and opinions as part of your kickstarter campaing, just don’t insult the people that supported you in good faith.
I think more and more people are learning about John Campbell’s public self-destruction over his kickstarter campaign.
Here are a couple of things to take away from it.
Seeing as he has no respect for the people that supported him in good faith, by being a total recalcitrant asshole regarding his kickstarter… why should others respect his wishes to be referred as a “she” or “her”?
Respect goes both ways.
If John Campbell wants to be addresses as a woman as a sign of respect, then John Campbell could also be respectful of the people that supported him, and fulfill his responsibilities.
Instead, John Campbell became an extremist left-marxist caricature in a huge rant that almost boils down to “I will not send you what I ethically owe you for supporting me, in fact, I will burn it down gleefully, and you can’t tell me shit because I am now a girl”
Excuse me, but WHAT THE FLYING FUCK.
