Following Mark Rein's untoward heckling at a talk given by indie developer Cliff Harris at Develop last week, Epic's Vice-President has decided to personally apologise to Harris, acknowledging that he was acting like "a jerk".
Thats nice of him
yes u was .. but nice to admit
unless you had a near death experience or tea-time with Oprah and the Dalai Lama, chances are that you still ARE a jerk. People don't change in a week, they just pretend to.
admitting youre were a jerk does not mean youre a jerk or not it just means you had a jerk moment
It's not a matter of changing. Have you never done something and felt bad for doing so afterwards?
Maybe he had a bad day that day, and took out his fustration on someone else. You don't have to have a near fatal incindent to be a jerk. I don't know why someone having tea would become a jerk either, but everyone's differnt I guess. I know if I don't get enough sleep, I can be an ass, but that's just me personaly.
I don't know, public apology in my book means a lot. How often do we get that these days? The vast majority just hide it under the rug and moves on! I have great respect for M. Rein after this.
My God, do you watch TMZ? Entertainment Tonight? Mel Gibson is sorry for hating Jewish people. Just today, Lindsay Lohan was sorry for being such a fuckup. Are you aware of the nebula of criminal activity, scandal and drug use - and the ensuing PUBLIC APOLOGIES - of Hollywood? What about the thousands of politicians who cheat on their wives with men/ women/ transvestites and then cry their hearts out on national tv and embrace Jesus (again)? When you're in the public eye, and you do something uncouth, you apologize. It has about as much meaning as a fart. It's simply what you do to save face.
Same as the other M. Rein story, just quoting from the email. But I guess Rein haters needed another fix....
Yeeeeeeaaaaaah.. He should kill himself in a horrific accident or maybe even slit his arm wrist to show how us much of a jerk he really was.. It'd make an awesome N4G article's headline :D
DOES ANYONE REALLY CARE ABOUT THIS CRAP
This was posted yesterday along with the entire apology to Cliff Harris. GAME OVER...TRY AGAIN
Regardless of whether Rein is a jerk or not, Bobby Kottick is a prickk.
