The Eve Online forum response (via Eve Search) is here.
The contradictions in the "interview" are remarkable, if Mittens serves his full CSM6 term I will be astounded!
Somebody would have to be running a pool or a sweep on how long he's going to be in office surely!
The one thing I do agree with however is the official and un-official Eve Online forums and the various blogs do not represent the majority of the Eve Online player base, merely the vocal minority.
Also note that only about 11% of the total Eve Online population voted for anybody in CSM6, and of that 11% a much smaller percentage voted for Mittens, as mentioned here.
A fraction of a fraction does not a mandate make.
As CCP has the next year or more mapped out all the current CSM can hope to do is nudge CCP in a direction and hope for the best, I suspect this will not sit well with the current Chairman.
Should be interesting then.
