PostDesk: The real Paul Christoforo story – how he plans to cash in on his fame, write a book

In his most revealing interview to date, we get to the bottom of the story behind the infamous Paul Christoforo – and discover that whilst refusing to “bury his head in the sand”, he truly believes that any publicity is good publicity – he believes that his computer is merely a "tool to make money" and that given time, he can turn the whole thing around. (CES / Consumer Electronics Show, Culture, Industry, Paul Christoforo, PAX, Penny Arcade)

Wow after reading this. Im totally on this guy side. I agree with him. I worked in retail and dealing with some of these customers made me want to come around the counter and punch them. What you guys need to understand is when you speaking with a customer service person. Be respectful and kind. Paul if you read this. I wish you the best and a successful career.

You can't argue that he hasn't made a name for himself, however bad it may be!

True but not enough for him to cash in on.

But you didn't punch the customer. And I'm guessing you certainly wouldn't punch the customer when the customer is, well, like you said, kind and respectful, and more importantly, right.

This guy probably would punch somebody.

Seriously. Read the emails that got this guy here in the first place...

The guy responded to a legitimate and polite complaint about how new customers were getting a discount before those who paid the full price even had an idea of when they would actually get their orders fulfilled. Rather than being professional about it, this guy told the customer to put on his "big boy hat" and that he would put the customer's controllers on eBay. And on top of that, he completely missed the point of the customer's complaint. He mentions GameStop as an example of why the customer shouldn't be complaining, but every reputable company has policies that ensure that bonus offers are extended to everyone who hasn't yet received their order, which is all the customer was asking about.

Everything after that just proves he's a massive jackass.

I can't wait to read "How to be a massive jerk and get fired from your job for being incompetent." I sure hope he takes a 3rd grade spelling and grammar class before he starts on it, though.

He can't even spell right...
