I tried to find quotes for Inner space but Martin Short has made my searches difficult.
“Leave him alone” in terms of harassing him or his family directly, yeah, that shit should have never happened in first place. But it seems like for too many people “leave him alone” means “stop discussing the additional instances of plagiarism that are being uncovered on a fairly regular basis” and fuck that. The people he worked with and the people he stole from have every right to know.I was very much on the 'his life and career are ruined, leave him alone' side but the more that's been uncovered, I want to see how much of a fraud this guy really is. Is his degree faked? Was his position at Proko.com bs? Like did a friend of his just say 'yeah, I run this site, you can put it on your resume' as a favor? Is this guy really even Filip Miucin?
Well, his day already seems full enough playing whack-a-mole on YouTube, seeking to administer copyright strikes against every relevant video in sight. Which appears to evince an ongoing lack of remorse.
Fam, chill. I literally quote-responded to the post with his tweet. Everyone could see what I was talking about. I used the quotation marks to show that I'm unsure of Jason's findings about Miucin's past, i.e. if they are of personal nature bc that's what I associate the abstract concept of "past" with and also to express that I think "exposing" personal stuff would not be okay in this case. I used the quotation marks as scare quotes, which I think is absolutely okay in this case because I directly linked the thing I was referencing.
And yet they have to fire people for on the job performance, on the job plagiarism, even a Analyst that seems to have been incompatant for over 7 months after your peerless firm’s ironclad recruitment process...
since they are now exposed, MAYBE, people will feel comfortable to share their experiences. Who knows.
I'm not familiar with this person or the game they're tied to. What's the deal with him exactly? Why couldn't they speak up?
Miucin is that guy you get paired with in college for that project that is worth 40% of your term grade. Then he disappears and you have to do the whole damn thing by yourself and he still gets the same grade as you or your group.
Oh I remember the game Inner Space. He talked about it on NVC and it did seem he didn’t fully understand that game.
Speaking of other industries or markets besides video games, has there been any other writer who plagiarized or continues to plagiarize as much as Filip has?I have to ask for the third time: Why did he even want this job if he didn't enjoy actually doing it? There's no fame or money in it.
I think this is an interesting and important point regarding this issue and the impact & responsibility of gaming journalism, in general.
This is a massive industry, bigger than Hollywood, but there's a lot of flimsy work done covering it. I think it goes all the way back to the total dog shit of early gaming magazines, where this whole thing started as a lark for a much smaller audience that was largely considered to be playing with toys for kids and nerds.
