Redditor threatened by (ex) Defcon employee
Written by McNandy on July 27 2012 02:29 PM
It seems that some people simply never learn from others' mistakes regarding public relations which vaguely reminds me of the Ocean Marketing debacle a while ago, only not quite so big. An unnamed individual who now used to work for Defcon Servers definitely didn't pay attention in the customer services training section that involved "Don't threaten to publish customers addresses and give them to criminals".

Below you can see an extract of an exchange between a Redditor, SinisterPrime, who wanted to hire a DayZ server from them. The full story isn't clear from the image alone, but the OP rented a server and didn't receive the service he expected. SinisterPrime even admits that they made some mistakes with the service but this seems to have had no effect. Below is the content which SinisterPrime received, unprompted, from Defcon:

So you want to play games you little shit? How about I post your home address and personal details all over the internet? Would that make you happy? Watch who you fuck with. I will make it so every criminal in your state has your address.

It also makes you wonder just who the support agent socialises with if they believe it to be within their capability to give every criminal in a state someone's address, but we get the impression that might've been a vague exaggeration.

Via Reddit, so don't repost please

Some people just don't understand that you can't say stuff like that on the internet in this day and age. It spreads like wildfire and a lot of backlash will come from it. Sometimes you have to learn the hard way though.
