MICHAELVonline came back with a heated rant to the mail he got with the attached screenshot, which apparently based on an assumption that I was spamming also, so his rant is based on complete bullshit he made up to try & rationalize the fact that he got called on his spamming.
Let's get down to the facts here:
Considering the issue continued to be a problem after the messages were sent to him in response to his, it seems I need to further document this. In response to his response, the following messages were sent:
After those were sent, he retaliated with the following:
There are a number of things he doesn't realize here:
In this last mail he sent he, he mentioned an appology for falsely accusing me of baiting (not a term I've used in the past, but perhaps I had some understanding of it considering the trolls that used to frequent the forums I used to & still go to), although his apology was for the most part drowned out by accusations, threats & holier-than-thou, privileged-child bullshit. Would he have known he made a mistake in his first response if I hadn't contacted him back? No, he would have just believed he was right & that I was the individual that was begging, leading him to believe I was baiting when I posted all the spamming online. So his apology was conditional with strings attached, perhaps only to lighten the direct approach of his threats.
Any report of harassment (the term PSN uses in reports on mail is griefing, not harassment), is going to be investigated to see if there really was any harassment. The fact that there was a screenshot attached to those messages is going to likely have his complaint thrown out.
As far as harassment is concerned, I could also do the same with the first response he sent me, seeing as it was littered with false information & fraudulent assumptions. While the official method to file a complaint would be to go through PSN, there wouldn't be much point seeing as my messages are as much griefing as his are.
The threats of filing charges is a joke. No court is going to take this case, they will tell the individual to deal with it through PSN. Were it to actually make it to court, it would probably be thrown out on the spot. And if it were to go to court, I would be ready with a countersuit (not that I expect it would even be heard since I don't expect his bullshit case to be taken seriously). This started with a form of griefing, spamming which is used to drive off other users from the game. The publisher of the game does not seem to be concerned with this happening in Dragon Ball XenoVerse, otherwise I would expect they would be going after him with a lawsuit, banning his PSN account from accessing servers or flagging his save so he couldn't use the chat channels anymore. And sure, they might come after me for my review of the game, but every case I have seen that tries to claim slander of a company in court has lost those cases, seeing as reviews are protected under freedom of speech & if they can not prove that what is being said as false, then they never win the case.
At this point, I have no intentions in contacting this holier-than-thou, delusional moron, because he's not worth my time. His threats of filing reports against me to PSN do not scare me, because I expect any investigation of the matter to show the facts & the complaint will be thrown out. His threats of filing charges doesn't scare me, because I know that I could counter his lawsuit with my own & BOTH would be thrown out. What I do know at this point is that I will continuing taking screenshots of his spamming (if it continues) & continue publishing them (without contacting him) for further fuel to get the publishers of this game to do something about it; with any luck, he'll find himself kicked out of the game (not that I expect him to understand the reason for it given he's shown me he thinks he's some kind of privileged saint). While I have been considering blocking the little fucker on PSN, I think I'm going to restrain myself from doing that & using any further flak he gives me over PSN mail against him in a number of griefing reports to PSN, as well as publishing them online so people know just what kind of delusional little twit he is. Should he join any rooms I start after this point, he will be IMMEDIATELY booted. And I will be making sure I'm using the correct headset & recording when I run this game so that I can catch his insults on videos to be published afterwards & perhaps sent to Bandai/Namco & Sony as well.
