Schilling says Rhode Islanders don’t know the full story of 38 Studios

    
62

Curt Schilling talks a lot. Or should I say, he writes a lot, as you’ll see in his lengthy blog post that covers everything from his recent adventures in doxxing to the ongoing fallout from the 38 Studios debacle.

Schilling tells the taxpayers of Rhode Island that he doesn’t blame them for viewing him as chiefly responsible for the boondoggle that left them on the hook for $75 million. “You have every right to be pissed, I am,” he wrote. “When the full story is told I don’t think you’ll be any less angry, likely you’ll be more, but I do believe the direction of that anger will adjust itself.”

He goes on to say that he takes responsibility for the company’s downfall and views it as his first real failure.

_Ariel_ Did you read any of the tweets? They were about as bad as it’s possible to get.

Zulika_Mi_Nam Actually, those trolls who went after his daugher would probably testify that he does have a pretty good idea how the internet and social media works.

ihatevnecks Champagon Correct, massively talked about it.  But i am referring to mass media, don’t forget this was on major news outlets as well before it just “went away.”

BoredNow SoMuchMass Just because you tell people not to be a dick, doesn’t mean they will listen.  In South Korea, the identities are not anonymous yet cyberbullying is common to the point of suicide.  Using idiotic terms of victim blaming won’t help with anything.  It isn’t a solution.

Zoel carson63000 Devil Olive Sorenthaz Care to point out where the word “stealing” appears in the comment tree you are replying to?

Please make another attempt at reading before making any more attempts at replying.

This is the reality of the world, with anonymity and the internet, “public figures” will always be under scrutiny or even harassment.  It will never ever change even if you take away anonymity there will be crazies.  It is a cost you pay for being a “public figure”.  It is not right, but if you can’t handle it, don’t be on social media.  Period.
